Dirty Looks 

A quick look at Atlanta's fashion sense

Blonde ambition

Pearls: Despite their virginal character, there's something alluringly dirty-flirty about wearing a pearl necklace, but this one is not just for teasing boys. Brooke cunningly offsets her closely cropped hair with this feminine piece, purchased at the Apparel Mart's $2 store.

Sweater: This snuggly Manila Grace sweater spared Brooke's shoulders from the last remains of winter's chill. Purchased at Ambrosia in Beverly Hills, it was 75 percent off the original purchase price of $175, so she bought three.

Top: If you walk away from this with only one lesson learned -- invest in yellow now. It is the favored color among designers this spring, which means Atlantans will have embraced it by next year. Brooke got her Sharagano top on sale at Nordstrom for $75, drawn to it, she says, because it matches her hair and skin.

Skirt: This pleasantly rumpled skirt in ultra-pale yellow was purchased at Wet Seal for a mere $30. Rough and tumbled edges coupled with layers of socks and tops recall early Madonna (you know, when she was cool) and prevent the pastel from too-sweet status.

Hosiery: Maybe it's her dreams of becoming a confectioner, but Brooke's clearly on a candy-colored kick with her wardrobe. Both the neon yellow fishnets and turquoise socks (an impulse buy to match her highlights) were bought on sale at Nordstrom.
