With Armandos taco truck out front, loads of amazing TexMex fare in the kitchen and margaritas flowing throughout, the crowd at the Glendower Court home of Gregory Fourticq reveled in high party mode. The "Delish Dish" evening benefiting Recipe for Success was a casual affair for which John Daugherty real estate agent Laura Sweeney nailed the elegantly casual fashion theme.

Her embroidered silk top by Oscar de la Renta was a Christmas gift from her daughter Noelle Sakowitz, an assistant designer with de la Renta in New York. Laura wore it with a white camisole from Tootsies and a skirt that she considers a special find. "I have loved it," she said. "Just a white pencil stretch skirt I bought at Tootsies. It's by Avenue Montaigne."

Laura's shoes are Jimmy Choo purchased at Neiman Marcus. And her stunning earrings — Ippolita, bought at Zadock Jewelers.

As the top selling agent at John Daugherty and number two in the region for 2011, Laura isn't always focused on fashion. However, on this night, the Best Dressed Hall of Famer stepped out in relaxed sophistication. "I decided to wear this outfit because the party attire was 'Fiesta Casual' and I thought the top was colorful and festive looking."
