You’ve done the back to school shopping for your kiddos. The new Hunter Boots are bought. Maybe a Madpax backpack. Two pairs of jeans, three dresses, four leggings, one tunic, three new t-shirts, a jacket and two sweaters – In size 6x? Check. Two boxes of unscented markers, three 2-divider notebooks, and hand sanitizer? You got it covered.

What’s missing?

Um. Well. To put it bluntly… YOU.

But don’t worry — Charm City’s fashion industry has you covered this September with a bevy of opportunities to shop local and upgrade your fall style. Here’s what’s coming:
