GarnishSavvy is quite adept at saying no— no to chairing yet another committee, no to party invitations that include the words “bring your kids!”, no to spa weekends that start with 6 a.m. hikes. Saying no to a dear friend that asks you to be in her wedding? That’s tougher. But after two forays into horrid taffeta, Sav felt the need to take a firm stand. Mia Isse may just change her mind. Her new Mount Washington boutique, Garnish, stocks bridesmaid dresses that actually do live up to that “you can wear it again!” refrain. She has racks and racks of frocks that are fashion-, figure- and financially-friendly— no small feat. Stop in for classic but sweet designs from names like Jenny Yoo, Thread, Simple Silhouettes, Lynn Lugo, Charsa and Coren Moore plus pretty jewelry from Turq and stylish shoes from Blue Tux (yes, they are dyeable). These cocktail-inspired shapes work equally well for cotillions, graduations and other special occasions. For those in a rush (we won’t ask why), custom orders can be had in as little as six weeks. Best of all, you can also buy right off the rack. Don’t miss: The selection of bridesmaid’s gifts.  5724 Falls Road, 410-464-0601
