There's a pay off for Jennifer Kitchin, 33, in paying the price at Nordstrom for a beautiful cranberry jersey Calvin Klein Collection sleeveless sheath with draping at the waist. It fits not only her and her "understated classic style," but her financial style, too. "I love a good sheath dress," she says. "It's an investment. You'll be able to wear it forever." When the Baltimore Lead Paint Services owner attended the "Paws for a Cause Charity Night" for Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter at the Blue Hill Tavern, she ratcheted up her look by ditching the skinny belt that came with the dress for a black leather obi belt from The Limited. The Mount Vernon resident added a trendy edge with a pair of lace-up cut-out peep-toe Steven by Steve Madden booties from Off Broadway. Her black leather Dooney & Bourke handbag came from Dillard's in Atlanta. She added a Kate Spade cuff bracelet made of gold wire in the shape of a bow and small gold Kate Spade hoop earrings, both from neimanmarcus.com. "I'm addicted to online shopping. But [when I'm shopping online], I think if I was walking through the store would I buy that?"
