Poppy and Stella
728 S. Broadway
Baltimore, Md. 21231
(410) 522-1970

Poppy and Stella is the ultimate guilty pleasure of shoe shopping. Although it is a small boutique located in the heart of Fells Point, it certainly does not lack a wide selection of "carelessly cool" city girl shoes. The sales staff is clearly used to hearing gasps of infatuation with the merchandise and they are there to provide a laid back, no pressure shopping environment. You may end up spending a little extra than your summer shoe budget allows but all pangs of buyer's remorse will soon be assuaged by the many compliments you will receive.

Ma Petite Shoe
832 W. 36th St.
Baltimore, Md. 21211
(410) 235-3442

Two sweet words are all you need to accurately describe Hampden's own Ma Petite Shoe: shoes and chocolate. The ultimate shopping indulgence locale provides a unique array of both weaknesses. While perusing the selection of sandals and wedges to go with your summer sundresses, you can enjoy a burnt caramel Chocopologie bar or their exclusive Firecracker bar that offers a quirky mix of chocolate and Pop Rocks. Some of the chic shoe collections include Dolce Vita, Nicole, and Naughty Monkey (and many, many more). This is a truly unique shopping experience not to be missed.
