It’s tempting to stay in your pajamas all day, especially when you work from home. Not for FOF Ruta Fox.“I find you can actually be more productive if you get up and get dressed,” says Ruta. “You have to have some kind of structure if you work from home, otherwise you get sidetracked with things like laundry and cooking.” Ruta, the founder of DivineDiamonds.com, works from her Upper East Side, Manhattan apartment. Today we spotted her on the way to a meeting.
Name: Ruta Fox
Age: Over 50
Where are you going? I have a meeting with a friend who is a private jeweler.
How would you describe your style? Classic, but fun. Trendy, but not over the top.
Is there anything you never wear? The colors yellow, red and chartreuse.
What colors do you like to wear? Cream, beige, black and pale pinks and blues.
How has your style changed over the years? It actually hasn’t changed that much. I’ve always liked detail, such as a flower or embroidery… something of interest.
Splurge piece? A vintage alligator handbag from a market on the Upper West Side and a Nanette Lepore jacket.
