Kimberly Manns, 31, shows that being a "budget shopper" doesn't mean you have to sacrifice any style. The Baltimore Mayor's Office deputy director of policy and communications showed off a style she calls "classic with a bit of an edge" when she came to the Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Chesapeake's Biggest Little Tailgate Party at M&T Bank Stadium. She wore a brown jersey V-neck Carmen Marc Valvo dress she found at Stein Mart to which she added an animal print belt from another dress. She got her cream boucle double-breasted car coat on sale at the Juicy Couture store, and her gunmetal shoulder bag at the Cole Haan outlet. She couldn't remember where she picked up her animal print disc earrings and her distressed taupe and brown boots. But her amber and silver pendant came from a flea market in Puerto Rico. This Owings Mills resident's shopping rules? "I go to all the discount stores and mix and match," she says. "I recycle everything. And I don't throw clothes out."
