MEET SALLY DRENNON
FOR AGELESS STYLE!
I would like to think of myself as a unique, modern woman with an adventurous style who is constantly reinventing herself!
I grew up in Ohio and went to Pine Manor Junior College in Chestnut Hill Mass, basically a finishing school for women. I graduated with a Mrs degree and married.
We traveled the world and he introduced me to Yves Saint Laurent who taught me the basics of what a woman really needed in her wardrobe. Needless to say, I was off and running in a glamorous world at the age of 19.
Fashion and style have always played a key role in my life. I opened a little boutique in the late ’70s in Palm Beach Florida.
Shortly after that I was with some ladies of Palm Beach shopping for their homes and was immediately drawn to the world of interior design. I’m completely self-taught in all these areas. I have had the privilege to work on many beautiful homes, yachts and even a private jet or 2 over the last 4 decades.
About 12 years ago I found myself pulling apart my own jewelry and started mixing and matching pieces with ethnic finds at flea markets and gem shows. I believe accessories are key when dressing! I’m extremely attracted to tribal accents, amulets, symbols, earthy treasures, and pieces with history and meaning. I’m drawn to the idea that there’s life in each piece before I give it a new concept in a fabulously chic and tangible way. I’m in my 60’s and one day at a time, I’m living my best life ever!!
1. HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
Classical with a bit of an architectural edge and a tribal couture influence.
2. WHAT INSPIRES YOUR SIGNATURE STYLE?
My mother left me with a legacy of style and grace. My moment of inspiration started in 1977 when YSL told me I only needed a few basics.
3.WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ACCESSORY?
This changes regularly, but is always something that I’ve made. I prefer things that are ethnically informed and lend themselves to the tribal couture vibe that I love.
4.WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE COLOR COMBINATIONS?
Black and white
Neutrals are my favorite because they always work with my jewelry.
5.Do YOU HAVE A SIGNATURE PIECE THAT DEFINES YOUR STYLE?
6.WHAT ARE YOUR STYLE STRENGTHS?
7.DO YOU HAVE A STYLE MUSE?
No, not really. It’s more of a team of muses from various times and disciplines.

9. WHAT ADVISE DO YOU HAVE FOR WOMEN OVER 50?
Live your best life. Do it now. Don’t wait. If you like wearing something, wear it day or night.
Break the rules.
10. DO YOU HAVE ANY STYLE RULES THAT YOU LIVE BY,OR DO YOU CHOOSE TO BREAK THE RULES?
I’ve learned all the rules, so I know how to break them correctly.
11. WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE ONLINE AND OR BOUTIQUE SOURCES?
Various vintage and flea market sources. I love the hunt, and I prefer shopping in person to online.
12. DO YOU HAVE A PARTICULAR DIET OR EXERCISE REGIME THAT YOU FOLLOW?
I eat what I want for the most part.
I have a very active lifestyle, and I don’t spend a lot of time sitting still!
A good night’s sleep is also crucial.
