Tourists of the Inner Harbor: You don't need your eyes checked. That young blond girl in the blue dress you saw in triplicate? Elizabeth, Adrianna and Laurel Kamosa, 18-year-olds from St. Mary's County. That teenage boy wearing the "Triplets in Charm City" T-shirt was, as his uniform might suggest, in fact three brothers, not one guy who gets around fast. Dozens of sets of triplets drew stares and lots of questions downtown Saturday as part of an annual triplet convention. The 22-year-old event came to Baltimore for the first time, giving multiples and their parents from across the country a chance to share stories and lessons and bond over their shared genetic luck.

WHEN THE NAME OF the party is Steppin' Out to the Stars, and you're encouraged to "glam it up" for one of your favorite charities, TurnAround Inc., Edgewood resident Christina Bauer knows how to make it pop. While her job as a Baltimore County court advocate for domestic violence victims requires her to wear suits to work, she loves color. Bauer knows how to add a dash to her daytime outfits. She makes a big splash in her hot-pink mermaid dress at night -- particularly when it's for a charity where she also volunteers.

Amy Matt says her friends often call her "J. Crew" because of her style. "If I have a collared shirt on, I definitely pop the collar," says the 33-year-old Paychex senior sales associate, with a laugh. However, the Pasadena resident describes her own style as more "mix and match. I like to have fun." And that she was having when we "glimpsed" Matt at the Tiki Barge in an emerald flutter sleeve top from The Limited, denim New York & Co. shorts, a gold snakeskin patterned leather belt from Banana Republic, and neutral metallic bangles from the BCBG outlet at Arundel Mills.

I got a new purse for Mother's Day, but I am reserving judgment. I like the purse, don't get me wrong. I actually lobbied for it. But I've been burned before, so you won't hear me gushing about this purse until … well, until I know it is The One. You'd have better luck buying me a new husband for Mother's Day. Or a new house. There's a greater chance I'd like either one of those than there is that I will like this purse. That's how tough the purse thing is. You might think it is bras.
