In the Press | Best of Boston and Boston’s Best

Thursday, July 31st, 2014

We are very honored to have been recently acknowledged by Boston magazine in their 2014 Best of Boston issue, and by The Improper Bostonian in their 2014 Boston’s Best issue! We are very appreciative of the support!



Best of Boston

The swish crowd shed tears when Dress bid adieu to Newbury Street in May 2012. Thankfully, owners Martha Pickett and Jane Schlueter reopened their girly-cool boutique on Beacon Hill last August, and in addition to stocking the designers that defined the store’s first iteration—Vanessa Bruno, Loeffler Randall—they’re introducing fresh lines like A.P.C. and Ulla Johnson. Mix in small-batch fragrances, statement jewelry, and curated housewares, and it’s a one-stop shop for the city’s pretty young things.

Boston’s Best

It’s like that friend you haven’t seen in a while, but fall right back in step with the moment you reunite. Such was the lovefest that ensued when Dress reopened in Beacon Hill a year after closing on Newbury Street. Although the boutique’s name pays homage to the little black number of note, you can also play dress-up in tattered skinny jeans, bohemian tops and tuxedo shirt dresses. Envelope clutches, laser-cut oxfords and glitzy jewelry make for fine finishing touches. Welcome back, old friend.
