FOF Elaina Spilove, a Wharton graduate and Smith Barney SVP, describes her style as “business edgy–conservative.” Still, her mother (pictured below), with her feminine style, wielded much influence over Elaina’s fashion sense today.
“My mother managed a nightclub in Center City in the 1950s. I would sit in the bathroom and watch her get dressed every night in a shirtwaist, crinoline dress with bouffant hair and high heels. Now I wear heels with everything—Louboutin, Prada and Chie Mihara, a brand I buy at Joan Shepp.”
