“Good days start with good clothes” is Caitlin Gendreau’s MO and the reason she is committed to providing pieces that are new, fashionable, and affordable, so customers can always feel their best. Having worked in retail for over a decade, Gendreau opened Binnsy Boutique last spring in Wickford Village to share her style and passion with others. Owning a shop of her own was a “backburner day dream,” but when commercial space became available at 7 Main Street, the stars aligned and Binnsy Boutique became a reality. Though the pandemic posed a hurdle, she persevered.
Recently celebrating one year in business, Binnsy Boutique stocks its sun-filled space with a wide variety of clothing and accessories for women and men – from shoes to hats and everything in between.
Gendreau looks forward to wearing “all the bright trending colors” this spring and summer, and is excited to see mini ‘90s handbags everywhere and hopes even more ‘90s fashion trends return.
Gendreau chose a transitional outfit, which can be paired with a jacket for cooler spring nights, or worn as is all the way into summer. For the bottoms, she selected a patterned midi skirt in a satin-like material. “This material has been trending for a while now and is still going strong! Fun texted prints have also been a huge hit,” she says. A black linen top, knotted in the front, gives more emphasis to the high waist of the skirt. According to Gendreau, “you can’t go wrong with linen – it’s a trend that will never die.” While the midi skirt elevates the look from day to night, the black linen top keeps it relaxed. To complete the outfit, she added a chunky rope chain necklace, mini ‘90s-style handbag, and beige heeled mules, which Gendreau considers a perfect transitional shoe for any season. “The block heel and pointed toe gives it that chic look while still being comfortable,” she says.
