If you want to get dressed - and in this case we mean dressed to the nines - there's only one place to go in fabulous Montecito (the fancy southern neighbor of Santa Barbara): head straight for Susan Pitcher's high-end sister boutiques on Coast Village Road. The aptly named pair - one is called Dressed and the other is Ready - has been a favorite shopping spot of local fashionistas for quite some time now . . . a decade, in fact!

That's right. This fall, Dressed and Ready will celebrate their 10-year anniversary, a real milestone for an independent local business of any stripe. And how do they plan to commemorate the occasion? Why, with a party, of course! And also a move.
After 10 years of having her two shops separated from one another by one storefront, Pitcher was finally presented with the opportunity to make her two stores neighbors. Customers and staff are delighted that they will no longer have to dash across the way for just the right scarf or perfect cashmere.
So, where to go? If you're looking for fabulous apparel from world-renown designers like Stella McCartney and Givenchy, visit Dressed. But if you're searching for the perfect finishing touches, pop into Ready to select from a carefully curated selection of designer accessories, including handbags and shoes.
Dressed and Ready are open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
