The bar at The Strip House is on the dark side, which means that any fashion statement is going to have to pop to be noticed. One femme at the CultureMap Mixer on the Map who did stand out in the dim surroundings was Kelsey Jones, not to be missed in a purple romper by Leifsdottir from Anthropologie.

A New Jersey native, Kelsey is a Ph.D. student at the University of Pennsylvania, working this summer with the Houston A+ Challenge through the Education Pioneers Fellowship program. It's her first time in Texas and while she loves the friendly folks, the heat and humidity require a fashion check.

For the mixer, she said, "I wanted to change out of work clothes and wear something casual and night-time appropriate...with ventilation! I also love that the piece ends in shorts, which makes it a little playful and unexpected." 

Her shoes, "the most comfortable sandals I've ever owned," are Sam Edelman, purchased at DNA Footwear in Brooklyn. Her handbag is by Nooworks and her earrings were a gift from a friend.
