Some might refer to much of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's music as "classic with a twist." That same phrase also describes the BSO's grants program manager, when it comes to her style. We "glimpsed" Allison Burr-Livingstone, 26, at work at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in her "vintage inspired" mode. She sported a white ruffle Kiernan tank top from TJ Maxx under a gray chiffon Banana Republic tunic with a gray Ann Taylor pencil skirt and gray and white seersucker jacket she bought "four or five years ago" at Dorothy Perkins when she lived in London. The Halethorpe resident added black canvas pointy toe pumps with buckle detail which she bought at ninewest.com, a double strand necklace of white plastic beads she found at a vintage store in London, four stretch pearl bangles that were a gift, and pearl studs and a Tissot watch she purchased at Saxon's Diamond Center. Her orange-trimmed black microfiber Diane Von Furstenberg tote was actually part of a luggage collection. "But, it works as a nicer version of a briefcase." Burr-Livingstone says she's all about combining pieces. "I like to have fun shopping. I like getting deals. I go to Kohl's, TJ Maxx and Marshalls and like to get nice pieces from Anthropologie and Ann Taylor and mix it up."
