Brown Eyed Girl – A Funky Boutique won the Best Women’s Clothing category on June 23 at an annual awards dinner held at Loews Annapolis Hotel on June 23. The competition, based on popular vote, recognizes Annapolis businesses for food, dining, entertainment, shopping and services each year. It is owned and operated by Kent Island resident Katherine Stanfield and is the second year for Brown Eyed Girl to win.

“I am thrilled to be the people’s choice again this year,” said Stanfield. “It means I’m doing something right, that I’m giving ladies of all ages the styles they want. Their support means the world to me.” Stanfield has owned the business since 2009.


“Sincere congratulations to Katherine and her Brown Eyed Girl staff,” remarked James Houck, editorial director for What’s Up? Media. “This Best of Annapolis award represents a pinnacle achievement because each award comes directly from the community and our readership, which voted for the very best local retailers. What’s Up? Media is proud to have Brown Eyed Girl in the elite company of retailers (and restaurants), collectively celebrated as the Best of Annapolis!”

“It’s my favorite place to shop for women’s clothes in Annapolis,” said longtime customer Maria Nardina. “Their collection is always fresh, unique and of great quality. They are knowledgeable about every item in the store and help customers make good choices if they need help shopping. Plus, they are such a cool and happy crew – I’m glad I found them!”

Over 15,000 ballots were cast in January for the competition that included over 100 businesses.
