Expect a Stylish Arrival


Ericka Wilson

Ericka, spotted at Cross Street Market, gets our respect and admiration not just for looking great in the latest styles–long, strapless dress, dangly earrings, bejeweled sandals–but because she does it all while extremely pregnant.  It’s tough enough to look good on a sweltering day without baby on board. She looks cool, calm, collected and chic. Bodes well for baby.


You look so great. How far along are you?

Eight months. The due date is August 31st. It’s a girl.

Do you have a name picked out? 

Her father picked out Amirah. It is a Muslim name.

Is your dress a maternity dress?

No it is just a regular dress.

Where are you from?

I am from Baltimore.

The Difference a Dress Makes


Olga Etkina and Andrea Witkowski

When you’re young, it doesn’t take much more than a simple skirt or dress, casual hair and a pair of flip flops to look photo ready. These two friends on their way to a night out in Canton, exude simple style, youthful confidence and fun.  They make us want to horn in on their Girls Night Out.

The puppy might ward off some would-be suitors.  Maybe that’s the idea?



You both look so colorful tonight. What made you dress up?

We are celebrating because we are both moving.

Where are you moving?

Olga – I am moving to New York to go to school.

Andrea- I am moving to Patterson Park.

Olga, what is your personal style? Do you have any fashion icons?

Usually, I like traditional classic clothing. I like the way Scarlett Johansson dresses, she always look put together.

How about you Andrea?

I am more bohemian with a touch of rocker. I like Free People and Urban Outfitters. 



Owning Her Look in Colored Sleeves


Looking for people with a look, we headed to one of my favorite hair salons in Baltimore, balance the salon. Balance is located on Cold Spring Lane in Roland Park and I think it is a prerequisite that you must have a tattoo to work there.  

What do you do for a living?

I’m the front desk coordinator at balance salon (on Coldspring Lane in Roland Park). The receptionist!

How would you describe the way you dress?

Eclectic. I love vintage. I love Urban Outfitters. I love color.

So lets talk about that tattoo!

You mean my sleeve?

Sleeve. Of course. The colors are amazing!

It took six months to complete. I got it in Frederick, Maryland.


What do you see in your future?

I’ve worked in salons since I was 16 and I cut hair for two and a half years, but I have a business degree so who knows!
