When she was living in New York working as a freelance marketing exec, Kendra Oden was frequently stopped on the street for her stylish good looks and her photo ran in a number of style columns. So she wasn't completely surprised when CultureMap reached out to her for Style File.
For The Beacon garden party fundraiser, Kendra stepped out in a light frock from Bebe and accessorized with a smashing Vince Camuto handbag, an Hermès Collier de Chien cuff and Yves Saint Laurent wedge sandals.
"It was a garden party so wedgies are always a must. You don't want your heels sinking in the grass," she said. "I wanted something light and airy and kind of soft, something that transitions from afternoon to evening. I wanted to get in that last summer dress at the end of the season."
Back in hometown Houston, Kendra starts work soon as a marketing director for a plastic surgery collective.
