Valentine’s Day Pop-Up with Uwila Warrior

February 2nd, 2017

Next week, we will host a pop-up shop with Uwila Warrior, a line of luxurious intimate apparel founded by Beacon Hill resident Lisa Mullan, an impressive business woman, entrepreneur, and mom to three.

Addressing the conundrum women face every morning of comfort versus invisible panty lines, Uwila Warrior set out to give you both, and then some. All of the styles in the collection are designed with the brand’s signature “Happy Seam” vanishing edge (by the way, these are tried-and-true, the lines really are invisible!) The brand, now in its second year, offers a pair for your every mood. Soft silk or jersey knit. Solid neutrals, bold colors (think Nirvana Purple and Solar Yellow), or even glow-in-the-dark. Feeling like a ‘Cranky Pants’, ‘Hard Ass’ or in the mindset of “Kickin Butt’? They have them all. Even a special collection for Valentine’s Day, which will be showcased at the pop-up.

Shop Uwila Warrior at Dress next Thursday through Sunday. Stop by Dress Thursday evening, February 9th, after 5:00, and meet the founder, Lisa, when we kickoff the collaboration. Champagne and bites will be served.

Uwila Warrior Pop-Up Shop
Dress (70 Charles Street)

NAME:  Lisa Mullan

TITLE:  Founder/CEO Uwila Warrior

THE STORY:  We’ve all been there. There’s nothing worse than trying to conquer the world and having to slow down because our underwear is giving us a wedgie. Or, when we do wear a comfortable pair of undies, we catch a glance of ourselves in the bathroom mirror and face the harsh reality that we’re wearing granny pants. Not appealing, right?  I agree. That’s why I set out to fix this problem for women everywhere, creating a brand of comfortable and beautiful underwear that works under every one of your outfits.  That is how Uwila Warrior was created.

It’s not always what you know (and I knew nothing about the apparel industry), but who you know that can help solve a problem. In this case, that was one of my closest friends from college.  We were roommates in our early years out of college in New York City: I was slugging it out in business school and starting out as an investor during the tech boom of the late ‘90s, while my friend had landed a hot job at a young fashion company, Marc Jacobs.

As fate would have it, after almost 15 years at Marc Jacobs, my friend left in 2014. The timing couldn’t have been more fortunate.  You see, my friend could make the right introductions, and connected me to another Marc Jacobs alumna, Nesli Danisman, at Angora Group, to address this monstrous issue.

My background in finance, technology and internet combined with Nesli’s expertise and know-how in fashion set the stage to tackle the women’s underwear problem.  Uwila is now sold strictly online (and at this amazing Pop Up Shop with Dress). We launched last Fall and have been spreading the good word since.   

FAVORITE PAIR: Talk about Sophie’s Choice… That’s a tough one.  At first, my favorite was the glow in the dark “happy seams”. However, my kids were misbehaving one day and as I started to chase them around I yelled ‘Don’t make me mad, I’m wearing my “cranky pants” today’, then they fell right into place – so the silk “Cranky Pants” may have taken the lead. Who knew a pair of underwear could help with keeping your children in line?

VALENTINE’S DAY PLANS:  I’m currently debating between wearing my “Sex” or “TV” Uwila silks under a fabulous Ulla Johnson dress. As for plans, I have a date with my daughters to bake 40+ brownies for their birthday celebration at school on February 15th.  After that, my husband and I will chill with some good wine and a homemade dinner.  Instead of fighting the crowds we prefer to stay in and have a romantic dinner at home.

Style Inspiration: Hats by Janessa Leone

We are very pleased to introduce Los Angeles-based hat and accessories designer Janessa Leone at Dress. Now in-store are some of Janessa Leone’s best selling hat styles, including: the Panton, Camellia, Lucy, Lola, and Sienna. Skillfully made by hand of straw or wool felt, in colors like Gunmetal, Olive, and Camel, the designer says her collection intends to “evoke a time when women’s innate confidence was conveyed through the dichotomy between sharp, menswear inspired tailoring and exaggerated feminine beauty.” A timeless addition to your wardrobe, Janessa Leone hats are created to ripen with each wear and mold to the wearer.

Taking style cues from fashion bloggers and celebrity fans of Janessa Leone from across the internet, below are examples of how to complete your look with a Janessa Leone hat.

SEASON PREVIEW | Fall 2016 Highlights for Pre-order now!

July 8th, 2016

From sailor stripes to pumpkin spice, Fall 2016 presents a range of alluring new trends. You will find sophisticated caplets, feminine ruffles, and fringe peplums mixed in with 70’s throwback looks, like smocked tops and bohemian dresses. Colors this season naturally get darker with traditional autumn colors making up the most significant of the new color trends. That’s gold, muted orange, maroon, and, of course, a variety of green. Not all the trends this Fall are new. From Spring, unfinished hems and delicate lace and embroidery detailing returns (better than ever this season). And there is no shortage of modern classics, from stripe and check shirting to delectable knits in grey, black, navy, and ivory.

Fall 2016 collections begin arriving at Dress next week and will continue to arrive through October. If you would like to pre-order a style from our trend report below, email us at shop@dressboston.com and we will contact you when the style arrives in store.

IN THE PRESS | Boston’s Best: Women’s Clothing – The Improper Bostonian

July 7th, 2016

We were ecstatic to learn that one of our favorite magazines The Improper Bostonian named Dress Boston’s Best in the Women’s Clothing category. See the write-up below.

 

The Improper Bostonian

Boston’s Best Annual Guide Issue

July 6 – 26, 2016

>>WOMEN’S CLOTHING

Dress

“Stocked with cool-girl labels like Sea NY, NSF, Ulla Johnson and A.P.C., Dress keeps the city’s fashion fans looking their best. The name nods to the classic little black number, but owners Martha Pickett and Jane Schlueter carry a lot more than that, stocking interesting yet wearable frocks, separates and outerwear, as well as a well-edited selection of jewelry, handbags, accessories, fragrances, footwear, including versatile Veja sneakers made from recycled plastic bottles. Hot tip: Keep an eye out for new styles from Rachel Comey coming this fall.”

Introducing: Veja

May 25th, 2016

Over the last couple of years, the rise of sneakers as a fashion must-have has been a welcomed trend by women around the world. Ahead of the trend came Veja, a French-Brazilian footwear brand launched in 2004. The company prides itself on its ethical approach to everything it does. All of its shoes are entirely sustainable, made of organic cotton, wild rubber and vegetable-tanned leather. Veja is committed to fair trade. All shoes are produced locally in Brazil’s Amazon rainforest and constructed in a socially conscious factory in the southern region of the country. On top of all that, Veja shoes are incredibly comfortable, versatile, and so cute!

The fun video below helps show how Veja shoes are produced. And check out this recent endorsement from Who What Wear and information captured on the brand in the London Fashion Week listing.

New arrivals at Dress include the classic Esplar and Holiday Mesh styles, as seen below. Click here to shop the styles on our website.

IN THE PRESS | Interior Designer Nina Farmer Featured on One King’s Lane

March 4th, 2016

The über-talented, extremely stylish, and always imitable Nina Farmer was recently chosen as a featured designer by One Kings Lane, the very popular home decor website. The feature, titled “Inside a Rising Designer’s Sophisticated Family Brownstone“, includes an interview with Nina and several photographs of her beautiful and impressive Beacon Hill home (see a few of our favorite photos from the feature below). In the piece, Nina talks about the approach she took when designing her 1850’s brownstone, how she wanted to stay true to the historic quality of her home — going as far as to recreate the moldings and casings throughout to match the period —  but how she wanted to give it a fresh feel. She says, “I love things that are tactile and old, and also new and shiny. But everything has a sophisticated, approachable feel to it.”

Visit Dress to shop the latest new arrivals from Nina’s Gallery NF collection of home accessories, including lamps, coasters, pillows, and furniture pieces.

NOTE: Nina is photographed wearing The Mixed Stitch Stripe Mini Sweater by Current/Elliott and the Le Flare de Francoise jeans by Frame, both found at Dress.

Style Inspiration: Travel

January 29th, 2016

Finding the perfect travel outfit (a time when comfort is a key factor), especially when you are traveling from one climate to another, can be tricky. The right combination often includes: boyfriend jeans or cropped cotton pants, a tank or t-shirt under a cardigan, hoodie, or light jacket (choose something you are likely to wear during your trip), a scarf, flat shoes (like ballet flats or slip-on sneakers), and chic sunglasses.

SEASON PREVIEW | Spring 2016 Highlights for Pre-order now!

January 14th, 2016

Standout trends for Spring 2016 vary from traditional, like the return of the saddle bag and the color khaki, to throw-back, like peplums, paper bag waists, and net designs. Other trends that emerged include: embroidered lightweight denim and chambray, lace-up detailing (for tops right down to your toes), delicate white lace, and sophisticated marled knits that serve as this season’s neutral and pair back to almost anything. Key trends making a reappearance this season include: cropped jeans, fringe detailing, and unfinished hems.

Spring 2016 collections begin arriving at Dress next week and will continue to arrive through April. If you would like to pre-order a style from our trend report below, email us at shop@dressboston.com and we will contact you when the style arrives in store.
