There are two large departments stores in Boston that almost always have a great selection of pretty pieces – Saks and Lord & Taylor. Elie Tahari and BCBG are worth looking into as well as French Connection (great for sparkly, mini options!). But if you can’t find something in one of these mainstream shops, hit the boutiques! We are lucky to have a host of great boutiques in Boston where you are bound to find the perfect dress for your next holiday party. So where should you go to find your gem? Some of my favorite spots are:
Wish – 49 Charles Street – A proper girl’s dream – Milly, anyone?
Twilight – 12 Fleet Street – A wide selection of dress types for every taste – good for casual options (Susana Monaco)
Crush Boutique – 131 Charles Street – Offers more modern, edgy designs
Dress – 221 Newbury Street – Offers some high-end options (Phillip Lam) but everything in here is pretty, pretty, pretty
Intermix – 186 Newbury Street – Also offers a variety of high-end options (Chloe) and the staff is great!
Habit – 703 East Broadway – This South Boston shop carries some great lines and although small, there is almost always a treasure to be found!
Party time is here and you’d better go get something to wear!
