Ramona Ann Ruskuls, Director of Education, REALTOR Association of Northwest Chicagoland

by Chicago Agent

Number of years in real estate: Five years.

Describe your look: Fun, trendy, urban and vintage.

What do you consider a “fashion don’t”? Wearing pants that don’t fit right and that make you look like you are suffocating yourself.

What is your favorite piece of clothing and why? My gray newsboy cap from DSW. It’s fun, fashionable and can also be a quick solution to a not-so-great hair day.

What do you consider a must-have accessory? Necklaces, earrings, rings and broaches which showcase pearls. Pearls are timeless!

What is a fashion crime you have committed in the past? White socks with black pants and socks with sandals.

Where are your favorite places to shop? Anthropologie, Ann Taylor Loft, Target, DSW and thrift stores.

What, besides your wardrobe, completes your look? A heart of gratitude and a smile.

    I love Ramona’s look! She puts together combinations I would never think of, and they look perfect. It helps that she’s a tall and thin person. Bue she has the biggest heart of anyone I know!

  • Jean Marella says:

    You look awesome Ramona!!! I love clothes but we have to remember: the clothes don’t make the person, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. And you get a 10 for who you are!!! One of the nicest people I know!

    Yes, Ramona certainly has style and the personality to go with it! She adds spunk to everything she does and graciously supports those around her. I particuarly like her “wardrobe completers”: a heart of gratitude and a smile!
