Erin Sundberg likes to have fun with fashion, but she has to keep an eye on her budget. "It has to be affordable because I've been a poor student for the last four years." The 25-year-old Federal Hill resident is now a social worker and child therapist with Head Start. She certainly has a playful edge when we "glimpsed" her enjoying dinner during Restaurant Week at a Fells Point restaurant in her "casual, vintage, bohemian" style. Sundberg wore a Velvet Torch dress from Nordstrom that featured a black and white knit top and a black cotton skirt. Her braided black patent-leather flat Steve Madden sandals were also from Nordstrom, as was her double-strand necklace of turquoise-colored big beads. She found her burnt orange leather crossbody bag at the Fossil store. The multi-color Coach scarf she used as a headband was her "one big splurge." She says she generally shops discount stores like TJ Maxx and Nordstrom Rack. "I like quality, but I can't afford to pay an arm and a leg." When it comes to creating outfits, Sundberg says "I try not to be too matchy-matchy. I like things that are a little hodgepodge."
