Dear Petite: a chic and minimalist Korean boutique in Edgewater
Edgewater may not be known for its abundance of shops, but if you find yourself in the Promenade Shops, there is one store you need to visit. Check out Dear Petite, a Korean-inspired women’s boutique home to chic and timeless essentials, all from Korea. Originally started as a pop-up in its location at 27 Promenade off River Road, this gem is one of our go-to spots. Here is more information about this Korean-owned shop in Edgewater, Dear Petite.
Shopping at Dear Petite
It’s truly one size fits all at Dear Petite, because there’s legitimately only one size and one garment for every style. Although there are no sizes, the store is definitely geared towards smaller body shapes, even with its larger options – so something to note for those planning a trip.

Author’s note: I’m a medium in most clothes, 5’5” – and I find stuff every time I go! But that being said, there is definitely a lack of sizing diversity.
Sweatshirts, vests and other styles handpicked by Dear Petite owner Linda, originally from Korea, are at the forefront of the store. There are shoes, handbags, tops and bottoms, with everything coordinated and arranged by color and a minimalist vibe. Although the store has that “if you can count the items, it’s probably expensive” vibe to its aesthetic, most pieces are between $100 and $200.
In the pants section, it’s all for the little ones, and there are 1 to 2 pieces max per item in general. There’s a fitting room, so it’s easy to make sure you’re okay, although the store has a 7-day return policy.
Linda sources all of her lines in Korea, making each piece a unique wardrobe staple not found in many boutiques in the region – while being, as the tagline of the store, “timeless essentials”. Most items are neutral tones.
