No Marion the Librarian Miss Fifi Phi! When this stylish librarian at the Texas Medical Center Library steps out of the stacks, she dons her stylista persona as a blogging contributor to WeWearThings.com.

Case in point, a recent charity fundraiser fashion event for Nora's Home at Tootsies, where she wore a chic dress by Tibi, a find at Azuz in Rice Village. A native Houstonian, Fifi carried a handbag from Miu Miu and wore high-heeled sandals from Zara in the Galleria.

As for the fetching dress, she says, "It was one of those purchases, where you walk into a store just to take a look. And you see this dress . . . It fits like magic."

Fifi and WeWearThings.com founder Issa Chou were traveling in tandem on this night as they often do for fashion outings.
