Perhaps because she is a graphic design intern at the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Cara Lichtenstein, 23, was too bashful to try and describe her personal style. But, colleague Elisa Watson defined it as "artistic chic." This soon-to-be Maryland Institute College of Art graduate demonstrated her aesthetic sensibilities in how she put her own look together for a day at the office in the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. She started with a black, white and mustard print polish cotton halter dress she found at a vintage shop in Massachusetts that was originally custom made and a black silk/nylon blend knit shrug from White House/Black Market. She added a stretch turquoise beaded belt from Party Dress, and gray, mustard and gold leather Seychelles T-strap pumps from Nordstrom. "I always find myself drawn to things that are either teal or black. I really like turquoise and I really like shoes. So, I try to base everything around those things." Her antiqued goldtone Lucky Brand owl pendant was a gift. She found her amber crystal drop earrings at a Baltimore street festival. Her gray sailors bracelet was made from waxed rope from a friend's boat, and fashioned right on her wrist about a year ago.
