Fashion FYI: Cecil woman named Simon Style Setter

| Thursday, April 25, 2013, 8:55 p.m.

Ross Park Mall has announced Leeann Marie Golish as a Simon Style Setter. The Monroeville native who lives in Cecil, Washington County, was selected as one of 40 style bloggers out of 700 applicants in a nationwide contest.

Her posts will be packed with information about trends, shopping tips, beauty insider information, style guidance and the word on up-to-the minute items available at the mall. She also will participate in fashion-related events at the mall, including store openings and fashion shows.

“I believe a solid fashion foundation begins at signature pieces and then works its way out into the latest trends and colors,” she says.

For your feet

Wellrox sandals are available at Macy's in South Hills Village mall. The shoe uses a technology called G.R.A.B.S. which offers comfort and a more-secure sandal that keeps feet in the sandal when walking. Wellrox five-toe sandals have specially designed padded toe separators that grip the sandal, reducing the chance of slippage. Prices start at $79. Details:

Style setter

“Twilight” star Nikki Reed has a look that's so right-now — plus, it's easy to pull off. People Style Watch breaks it down.

Work in modern pieces: Color block tops, silky shorts, peplum hems and leather pencil skirts give her outfits an of-the-moment vibe.

Stick to a mostly neutral palette: Nude, gray and black lend even the most trendy silhouettes a timeless and sophisticated look.

Add sleek extras: Whether it's a silver pendant, ankle-strap heels or a studded clutch, unfussy accessories with a hint of edge make the perfect finishing touches.
