Doubledutch Boutique in Hampden has always focused on featuring independent clothing and accessory lines. Owner Lesley Jennings goes out of her way to find quality local products to mix with her more established, independent brands.
While the latter bring new shoppers into Doubledutch, the former is what often make them return time and time again. Now, two women from Jennings’ staff have launched a second shop, focusing entirely on more such Baltimore-made goods.
This may be hard to believe, but as of this week, Hunting Ground has been in business five years. The vintage fashion boutique in Hampden celebrates its fifth anniversary on Friday in the same place it started, but with a brand new look.

Seven years ago, Julianna Margulies helped redefine what it’s like to dress as a professional woman, acting as high-profile lawyer Alicia Florrick on the television show The Good Wife. Her uniquely feminine style strayed from the pantsuits and “dress-like-a-man” ethos that flourished in business at the time. Instead, she wore modest, form-fitting dresses, swirling cloaks, patterned suits, and heels that occasionally lifted her higher than the height of many of her male co-stars. Costume designer Dan Lawson used a variety of brands to dress the show’s characters, but for Margulies’ character, he often favored a New York brand, Lafayette 148.
Gone are the days when we made valentines in school out of paper plates and doilies, relishing guilt-free in the seemingly unlimited craft supplies, and handing out democratically the finished product to everyone we knew.

We all know to book the reservations in advance, and pick up the flowers, but who has time to make a card? Still, nothing says “I love you” quite like that timeless tradition of writing those exact words.
