Brazilian babe Cris Noronha [Ford Direct] sure mastered the art of high/low styling (mixing expensive items with not so pricey ones) as well as the ultimate challenge, accessorizing. The contrast of her white studded Patrick Shannon clutch (she wears it cross body usually) with the black and green hued fabrics give the outfit just the right amount of ‘pop’, not to mention her top-finger rings and oh-so-perfect necklace layering. See what she has to say about her style and take a peek inside her bag.
