The leaves are changing and nights are getting cooler. That means it’s Shop Girl’s favorite time of year: Wardrobe Replenishment Season. Fall shopping is a simple process. Step one – Send all sundresses to the cleaners before packing them away until next spring. Step two – Survey all those empty hangers. Step three – Grab wallet and get thee to a boutique. It’s time to shop. But not all shopping is created equal – and not all tastes are the same. Make the most of your time – and money – with our handy guide. See which fashion profile fits you and find the shops in Baltimore to satisfy your sense of style.
