Chic Chic Boutique is a relative newcomer in Cross Keys, opening just last summer. The shop’s owners, Dario and Rosanna Sech, bring years of fashion expertise and European flair to the Village. Originally from Italy, the couple gravitates toward international brands, especially those from Canada, Italy and Greece.

They pride themselves on selecting items and brands that aren’t available at other local shops, and they cater to women of all shapes and sizes. Here, Rosanna shares some of her favorites in the shop right now:

How did you get started at Chic Chic Boutique?

After many years of retailing, my husband and I decided to start our own business since we are both passionate about fashion.

What is your favorite thing in the shop right now?

My favorite item in the store is this black, Marisamonti dress.

What is your go-to holiday gift recommendation?

My go-to recommendation would be one of the various beautiful, Italian sweaters we have in the store!

What style icon or celebrity could you imagine shopping at Chic Chic Boutique?

Halle Berry would shop at Chic Chic Boutique because she was photographed wearing one of the jackets we carry in the store!

What’s new and exciting at Chic Chic Boutique? Any trends for this fall and winter?

We have this gorgeous leather, black My Tribe jacket that I think is perfect for the fall or winter! You could dress it up or wear it casually!

Chic Chic Boutique is located at  62 Village Square in the Village of Cross Keys in Baltimore.
