[private] Who & Where From?: Nicole Brady, 26, was born on Roatan and studied at Roatan Bilingual School. She received a business degree from CURLA University in La Ceiba and began working as a Roatan Municipal secretary in 2003. Her mom Irma hails from Utila, and her dad Bill from North Carolina. Nicole’s sister, Jessell, is a MA candidate at University of Delaware; her brother, Mathew, lives in Austin.
What & Why: Her green button-up top was bought at a Banana Republic store at the Miami’s Aventura Mall– $39. Khaki GAP pants bought on-line, a nifty sale item at $39. Her fashionable Nine-West brown leather high-heel shoes, $29, with decorative metal buckles go perfectly with her khakis. “I got them online and on sale as well,” says Nicole proudly. She receives “sales alerts” from several online stores. “You just get good deals online.” Her white gold, diamonds earrings and half-moon shaped circular pendant were a gift from Nicole’s mom, Irma, on a family trip to Florida. Her Coach watch was bought at a Coach store at a Miami mall–$300. “It’s a nice watch,” admits Nicole.
In Conclusion: While working at the Municipality, Coral Cay and ZOLITUR Nicole had to follow someone else’s dress code. Now she is her own fashion captain. “You dress differently when you grow older,” says Nicole. Since she has been actively involved in Liberal Party politics for five years now, maybe surprisingly to some, Nicole admits that her clothes are not full of only red colored clothing. “Blue is one of my favorite colors,” says the assistant to a Liberal/Red party’s Bay Islands congressman. “It’s not just red polos and white khakis.” [/private]
