The Girl Next Door

Ruth Shaw welcomes a sister store.

Opening its doors last weekend, The Girl Next Door brings a fresh vibe to the Village of Cross Keys.

Ray Mitchener, owner of Baltimore’s fashion mainstay (and nationally recognizedRuth Shaw, hopes to capture a younger audience with The Girl Next Door. The women’s clothing and accessories boutique is more lifestyle driven—catering to that girl who wants easy, more cost-conscious pieces that are edgy and cool. Mitchener has curated the store with a mix of contemporary and more exclusive, up-and-coming lines like IRO, R&R SurplusRag and Bone denim, Helmut LangATM, and Koch.

Be sure to stop by the store on Dec. 5th for an all-day Grand Opening event, which will feature trunk shows from Lema J and Helmut Lang. A portion of the day’s sales will be donated to the Karma for Cara Foundation.
