Dressed by A Gracious Soul


East Greenwich has its own boho-style boutique with A Gracious Soul. Located in the heart of Main Street, husband and wife team Bethany DiPetrillo and Brian Hennessey have created a vibe, evident from your first step in. The couple opened the shop last October with the intention of supporting local, giving back, and creating something meaningful together. Shoppers find only “products with purpose” in their store – carefully selected items that are ethically and consciously sourced, made mostly in the US or locally, and created by artists, makers, and small businesses. 

“Out of our love for unique products and gifts, supporting local, and a desire to give back, we created A Gracious Soul,” DiPetrillo explains. “A portion of our proceeds go directly back to causes we care deeply about. The vendors we choose are also putting good into the world and contributing to charitable causes.” In addition to apparel, accessories, gifts, and homegoods, the retail space has been known to host events, like the popular Sip, Script & Shop beginners calligraphy workshops. 


This spring, DiPetrillo is excited about the bustle of Main Street and growing A Gracious Souls’ impact in their community – and fringe details on everything – including earrings.


For a day date of shopping, lunch, and drinks, DiPetrillo went cute and chic, yet casual and practical. On the bottom: straight-leg white denim jeans, a staple in a spring/summer wardrobe. On top: a tan bib tank top, stylish yet comfy for a full day on the go. Handmade fringe earrings add flair. A short stack of bracelets enhance the casual vibe and a green, wide-brimmed hat adds both bohemian style and sun protection. All pieces are high quality, handcrafted, and made by mission-driven companies. The whole outfit was made in the USA with the exception of the hat, which was made by artisans in Ecuador.
