"Last fall, the local entrepreneur Theresa Watts moved the women’s apparel shop she named for her Virginia-bred grandmother from around the corner. With its white walls and concrete floor stained golden saffron, the new space and its 18-foot ceilings nicely show off handpicked clothing, much of it from emerging designers."
"What do you get for the hip D.C.-area resident who has everything? Something from their favorite local shop, of course. We asked the owners and buyers at our go-to D.C. stores what they’d most like to receive from their own selection."
"This shop stocks a bit of everything: tailored dresses, colorful handbags, bold jewelry."
"Named after the owner’s grandmother, this sassy boutique is a true gem. The personalized customer service, cozy ambiance, and wide selection of special pieces make the store a must in any girl’s fashion arsenal. The collection boasts a wealth of innovative women’s dresses, featuring unique styles that heftily range from $100-300, but there are often sales, and the atmosphere is refreshingly unpretentious."
"Work at home in clothing that is comfy but can easily transform into meeting-ready apparel."
"Right in the nation’s capitol, this independent women’s boutique features an eclectic mix of emerging designers and a hand-picked collection of wearable and well-made pieces.With eco-friendly knits and ‘wearable art’ accessories, this boutique offers garments for every occasion with a bombshell accessory to go along with it.
Lettie Gooch - Fun outfits to shake it up
"It's amazing what a good dress can do for a girl. With a smidge of effort and five minutes to spare, a well-designed frock and a sharp pair of shoes can turn frump into fabulous. Incidentally, five minutes is about how long it takes to find something divine in Lettie Gooch, a women's boutique with an old-fashioned name, but nary a matronly shift in sight."
"You'll find versatile pieces that would fit into almost anyone's wardrobe, but have enough flair to stand out from the typical chain-store find."
"This trendy boutique sells fashion-forward, offbeat apparel and accessories for women. The store has an inventory of emerging and edgy fashion, and it frequently sells pieces from up and coming and local designers"
"The store has a relaxed and welcoming feel...the best part about this boutique is that it offers brands impossible to find elsewhere in the district."
