Women-Owned Businesses in DC

Happy March and Happy Women’s History Month!

For this post I’m trying something new by featuring some of my favorite women-owned businesses located in the Washington, DC area. This by no means covers all female-run businesses – just the ones I am familiar with and love! I hope this gives DC residents the opportunity to try out new stores and restaurants and allows you to support small, local, and women-owned businesses this month!

Additionally: All photos included in this post feature makeup done by the talented artists at female-owned beauty bar Own Your Wonder, which I’ve linked to below.

Beauty and Fashion:

Own Your Wonder (Makeup, skincare, and makeovers)

Illusions of Georgetown (Haircuts, color, and styling)

Violet Boutique (Women’s fashion)

Clothes Encounters  (Consignment Shop)


Food and Drink:

I Ricchi (Italian)

Pie Sisters (Best pies in Georgetown – I recommend their Jumble Berry Pie)

Chaia (Vegetarian tacos)

Drink Company (Creator of the themed Pop Up Bars that I adore)

Buttercream Bakeshop (Delicious treats)

Pizzeria Paradisio (fantastic Pizza)

Teaism (Asian fusion – I’m a huge fan of their bento boxes and rice pudding)

Crumbs & Whiskers (Cat cafe)



She Loves Me (Plant and Flower Shop)

The Spa Room (Massages and spa treatments)

Fantom Comics (My go-to Comic Book store in DC)

I hope this gives you all inspiration for the month of March! Be sure to check out even more female owned DC businesses in this post.
