If April showers bring May flowers and June weddings leave you dreading, have no fear a local solution is here. I love weddings: two people coming together, reconnecting with friends & family, contagious dancing, open bar… When the save the date arrives I am immediately excited about the location, time of year, guest list and venue. I start a mental mood board with ideas of what to wear and/or pack. However, when the actual invitation arrives, sometimes it takes some decoding to understand the creative ways attire is described and how to find the dress (or two piece/jumpsuit) to match.
I recently visited Best Dressed, a local shop in Southie owned by two sisters, Vicky & Nikoleta. I was immediately impressed by the organization of the dresses first by size (ahhh thank you a rack just for ME!), then by rental – clearly tagged dresses with the dates they are spoken for (so you don’t get your hopes up or feel like you are missing out). Vicky & Nikoleta could not be more welcoming or helpful (without being pushy). After a quick explanation of the store layout and rental process, you’re off to shop your very own rack (or two, because size is just a number and fit is most important). Vicky & Nikoleta offer onsite styling with jewelry for purchase and accessories too. Make your reservation (you get 5 glorious days with your new wear (up to 3 months in advance)), then simply pick up your rental and drop it off leaving the dry cleaning to them.
