As jewelry exhibits manager for The Rosen Group -- which organizes the largest American crafts trade show in the U.S. -- Rebecca Mercado, 30, says she likes so many different looks, her style is truly "eclectic." When we "limpsed" "the Hampden resident at her office in Hampden's Mill Centre, she said her outfit that day was "a little 'Mad Men' inspired." Mercado started with an olive green Andrew Marc wool blend dress with zipper detail from Loehmann's. Then, she added black textured hose and gray suede peep toe booties, both from the Aerosoles store. Her jewelry -- an oxidized silver and gold fill long necklace and hammered gold fill earrings -- were both by artist Cynthia Jones. Her Fossil watch was a gift, and she found her plum leather DKNY bag at Loehmann's. One major fashion influence is Mercado's hobby; making clothes that are like historical costumes. "So, I'm really inspired by that. I have little Victorian jackets I like to mix it up with."
