I spotted West Fargo resident Sanita Repak at FM Ladies Night last week and I literally chased her down to take her photo. (Thanks for not calling security, Sanita!)
I couldn’t help it — I loved how she used bright pops of red in her bag, lipstick and statement eyeglasses to give an artsy edge to a tunic and leggings outfit.
Sanita has an artistic eye for baking as well. It turns out she’s famous in the local Bosnian community for making beautiful cakes for special occasions. Chances are, if you’ve attended a Bosnian wedding celebration in the F-M metro since she and her husband moved here in 2008, you’ve seen Sanita’s work.

To try a look like Sanita’s, embrace your love of color and wear a patterned tunic with bright accent pieces.
Choose one strong color from the tunic or dress and keep the rest of the outfit neutral and streamlined. It won’t look too matchy-matchy and you can have a little fun with accessories like Sanita’s silver belt.
Top it off with classic leather jacket and a fabulous pair of glasses and you’re set!
