When an invitation to Baltimore GreenWorks' "EcoBall" encourages you to "shop your closet, visit local consignment shops or get creative and make your own eco inspired outfit," you know you're going to see some great outfits, like what we "glimpsed" on Christina Nutile, 32. The GreenWorks program manager came to the Frederick Douglass-Isaac Myers Museum shindig in a dress she and her mother had made from a bed sheet she found at the Salvation Army. "We washed it in very hot water before we did it," says the Lake Evesham resident with a laugh. Her black leather ankle=strap heels are 10-year-old residents of her closet. A friend bought her the turquoise colored bead choker at a secondhand store. And that hair ornament? "I made it from a shopping bag from the Burlington Coat Factory." Nutile describes her style as "European with a vintage influence." "I like '50s style dresses because they have a waist and an A-line skirt."
