Rachel Costello, 35, is known for wearing clothes you won't easily see on anyone else in Baltimore. "Because I get things in far-off places," explains the massage therapist and Apothecary Wellness co-owner. A good example of her style - "funky New York fashion with a Baltimore sensibility" - could be seen at the Social Expressions Summer Soiree held at the American Visionary Art Museum benefiting Animal Allies Rescue Foundation. The West Baltimore resident sported a textured stripe ruby dress with a pleated waist, built-in corset and bubble skirt that she picked up at a Bottega Veneta sample sale in New York City, Irregular Choice wedge sandals that featured a carved heel and dangling beaded strawberry from Ma Petite Shoe, a plum cotton and leather handbag she bought in Kyoto, Japan, and a rose gold Michael Kors big-face watch, which was a gift.
