As far as the Bitches go, I’m “the preppy one.” I love pink, polos, critter pants, anything nautical or involving sailboats, and Lilly Pulitzer, and I cetainly enjoy a cocktail or two at Martin’s Tavern. While my entire existence doesn’t scream prepster– there are times when critter pants are appropriate, and there are times they are not– I am certainly far prissier and preppier than the average bear.
Moreover, style is not looking like you just stepped out of a Brooks Brothers or JCrew catalog piece-for-piece.
As such, I’m always looking for fashionable, unique alternatives to the preppy mainstay brands like Lilly, Polo, Jack Rogers, J.Crew, and L.L. Bean, so I was thrilled when I stumbled upon Britt Ryan. The clothing line is named for the designer, a beautiful petite blonde from Boston who exudes preppy, feminine chicness.
Britt Ryan’s collections are filled with beautiful silk blouses and shift dresses in solid colors, staple prints (polka dots and stripes), and unique prints (elephants, sailboats, oh my!). There are beautiful dresses perfect for patio cocktail parties and summer weddings. There are fun, flirty skirts and cute shorts that are just made for summer brunches.
Britt opened her first store on charming Newbury Street in preppy Boston and just opened her second outpost in Georgetown (naturally). The Bitches are throwing the grand opening of Britt Ryan Georgetown next Wednesday, June 5, from 5:30-8:30 p.m. So, come say hi to Becca and I, and enjoy complimentary prosecco from One Hope Wine, cupcakes from Something Sweet Bakery, and gelato from Dolci Gelati. You’ll get 25% off your Britt Ryan purchase so you can shop all my favorite picks, and more, below. RSVP required on Eventbrite.
