Another stylish boutique in West Ocean City, MD is Bomshell Boutique located on Ocean Gateway. When we first stepped in, we were already grabbing our wallets to buy pretty much everything. Gina March, owner of Bomshell Boutique, said she really tried to hold on to that beachy-feel type of clothing. “We live in a town where you can visit the beach in October, so we try to hold on to the beachy clothing as long as we can,” March said. At Bomshell Boutique, you can pick up any item and wear it now while we transition into the fall season, but add some layers and you can wear it in the cold winter months too!


When asked what go-to items she would choose, “I really love our Veronica M. line,” March said.

Jenny Carven, owner of Ish, gave plenty of great fall fashion advice for the upcoming fall season. “Some big fashion trends this fall are embroidered flower-patched denim, tassels, and fringe,” Carven said. She was not kidding! Tassels are a really great accessory, whether you find them on a blouse, on a cross body bag, or even on dangly earrings, tassels are definitely a go to this autumn.


If you are looking to update your denim selection this fall, Ish Boutique has tons of denim right in the store. “We try to meet every price point offering classic quality items that anyone could grab off the rack,” Carven said. Carven gave a great piece of advice if you are always in a rush or you are on the go. If you wear the casual t-shirt and jean combo, tuck your shirt in the front! “Tucking in your shirt can bring your outfit to life,” Carven said.


Not only does Ish Boutique offer great fall fashion items but they even have home decor, small gifts for your friends and family and a very large accessory section. Ish Boutique is all season so stop in and grab your favorite fall fashion pieces before the racks are empty!
