About Us

Colorful, comfy & cute - that's our specialty. ☀️

Simply The Best Boutique is exactly that - simply the best of the best apparel, accessories and energy. Housemade upcycled pieces made anew, original designs crafted from as much recycled & deadstock material as possible and tastefully curated collections of styles to make you feel comfortable and confident in your own skin.

We don’t cater to passing trends and fads; we value positivity, creativity, self-expression and acceptance above all else. Where shopping out of necessity can be overwhelming, we strive to make shopping to express yourself less of a chore, and more self care. All we seek to do is polish the silver line on every (already perfect) cloud - everyone is at their most beautiful in their own skin, and you deserve to feel that way - no matter what that looks like for you.

  • Nothing is more important to us than the power of bringing people together — and, within Simply The Best, doing so over clothing. Finding your best, most confident self through clothing that makes you happy. Feeling beautiful inside and out.
  • Self expression looks different for everybody. Whether that means sequins and rainbows, worn-in denim or your favorite sweatshirt, we look to elevate what makes each and every person special in their own skin.

We're happy and proud to be a part of the Old Ellicott City, Main Street community - come visit our in-person location at 8104 Main Street, Ellicott City, 21043 MD!


Established in June 2021, STB is still relatively new to the boutique scene, but no less enthusiastic about the impact that clothing can have on a person. Sophie Betlejewski began STB with years of interest and experience working with people and clothing, enjoying most how to cultivate relationships between people and, respectively, their relationship with style. In March/April of 2022, STB opened its first brick and mortar location in Old Ellicott City, MD, moved up the street to a larger location (still on Main Street) and looks forward to the future!
