As we continue to celebrate Gleaner's 180th anniversary, we look at the evolution of fashion in those who have not lost their sense of style.

This week, we step into the closet of Sales and Events Manager Donna Moodie-Anderson to find out a little more about her love affair with fashion and style.

1. Which fashion decade do you prefer and why?

The 2000s is my favourite fashion decade as that was when we had a fusion of previous styles - halter tops, cocktail dresses, oversize hoop earrings and sunglasses, tube tops, hoodies - these were just some of the clothing I enjoyed wearing. Not only was it a fun time for fashion, it was a relaxed time as well.

2. How would you describe your style?

I would describe my style as diverse, daring, sophisticated, elegant and casually chic. I believe that not every trend suits everyone, so I wear pieces to suit my own sense of style and rock each look with confidence. In essence, I aspire to stay current without going overboard or too deep.

3. What is your one throwback piece that you just can't live without?

My one throwback piece that I just can't live without would have to be my black pencil skirt. It has stayed with me over the years and has been a permanent fixture in my closet because it is so versatile and can be teamed with just about any top. The added bonus - I am able to dress it up or dress it down, depending on the occasion.

4. Which style is your fashion faux pas?

Believe it or not, my fashion faux pas is actually my glasses. I looked like the female version of Steve Urkel in them. Glasses can play a major part in making or breaking an outfit, and back then, I sacrificed fashion for comfort. When contact lenses became popular, I jumped on that fabulous train and I've never looked back since.
