_18A9872{SS} What is your current job? 

{Sharon} Currently, I am working downtown Detroit at Detroit Venture Partners as a Catalyst. As a company our purpose is to help rebuild Detroit by investing in startup technology companies. I am one of the 'go to' women at the Madison building- I plan events, settle in tenants, and manage two of the partner's calendars. I absolutely love Detroit and love working at DVP. Being a part of Detroit's rebirth is exciting and incredible; I can't wait to see what the future holds for this great American city. Working in the broader Quicken Loans family comes with its perks of knowing about the newest ventures that are taking place in Detroit. Just this week, I ate at Wright & Co. in a bedrock building! I highly suggest everyone to check it out.

{SS} How would you describe your work wardrobe? 

{Sharon} I am very lucky to work in a business casual office environment where I can wear jeans every day. I normally dress up my outfit with a fun jacket.  Some of my favorite jackets brands are IRO and Dolce Vita. I love leather details in the jackets I wear, such as on the sleeves or trim of the jackets. I normally wear flats to work- my black toms or white converse or sometimes you will catch me with a cute pair of Sam Edelman sandals.

{SS} In regards to your personal style, do you have a signature accessory?

{Sharon} You will always see my wearing my Shinola Detroit watch; it is by far my favorite accessory. Partly due to the fact I got it as a gift from work; talk about an amazing surprise! Also, big purses are another piece that I never stray away from. My favorite being my Louis Vuitton Neverfull, however, I do wish I purchased the larger size. To me, the bigger the bag the better! At night, my signature accessory would most definitely be wedges. I pretty much dress up all my outfits with a cute pair of wedges. My favorites are my Alice & Olivia wedges; I have them in three different colors: black, nude, and red.

unnamed-1{SS} A few items in your "styleshack" A.K.A closet that you can't live without? 

{Sharon} I could not live without fun pants. Ones that incorporate patterns, colors, and of course, the camo pants. Right now I am obsessed with camo things in general, especially my camo jeans and my camo Lululemon wunderunder pants. Amazing! You can never go wrong with a great pair of jeans; they are my favorite part of my wardrobe. I prefer to wear JBrand jeans, Blanknyc, Rag & Bone, AG, and Sevens. However, it is all about how the jeans fit the individual. It is extremely important to find jeans that fit you perfectly to fluctuate all your assets. I'm infatuated with wearing colored jeans; I literally have almost every pair of highlighter color JBrands. They are perfect to dress up or down an outfit in the summer time. My Rag & Bone leather pants are another one that I just cannot live without; to die for.
