{Street-Spotted} Judy Scales

When we spotted this elegant FOF and her stunning silver necklace, we hunted her down for a photo. Turns out FOF Judy Scales was on her own hunt; she and her team from Grand Rapids, Michigan, were at NY Fashion Week scouting new merchandise to carry in their shop, Leigh’s.

What do you do? I’m a buyer and a stylist for a clothing store in Grand Rapids, Michigan, called Leigh’s.

What are you doing in New York? We are here on a buying trip.

    Judy looks so chic. She is the epitomy of “shopping couture” wearing flats, simple black leggings (what else makes you look so slim?) and what looks like her husband’s white shirt – that all says comfort. You could put in MILES a day wearing this outfit. The necklace polishes the whole look. Bravo! Just say NO to going out wearing frumpy outfits: you never know who might see/photograph you!
