Veronica Njeri-Imani goes for a "classic chic" style when she's on the job as a freelance writer. The downtown resident was on her way to do some interviews for a story she was working on for a California publication when we "glimpsed" her on Charles Street. Njeri-Imani had started with the taupe wool skirt of a suit she'd gotten from Suited for Success, and added a lace trimmed camisole she'd bought at Marshall's. Then she topped it off with a cream silk knit tie Cejon shrug, also from Suited for Success. Her cream slingback pumps and black Liz Claiborne tote were thrift shop finds, and she picked up her pearl stud earrings at Rite Aid. Her tortoise shell sunglasses were a Ross purchase. Her Live Strong rubber bracelet had a plaid ribbon braided onto it in honor of a police officer she knew who had passed away. When it comes to her style rules, she has a few. "Pearls are timeless. Handbags should be fashionable and functional. I hate flip-flops; they're beach shoes. And women should be mysterious about their age and their perfume."
