In 2021, Boston Common magazine acknowledged Dress as a 2021 Luxe List Honoree. They had this to say:
Located in Beacon Hill, Dress Boston showcases effortless, timeless designs. The boutique offers a range of impeccable products, from designer clothing and accessories to divine fragrances and home goods. The picturesque storefront features smaller, niche designers, such as Clare V, Nili Lotan and more. It’s the type of precious shop to snag a special piece customers never knew they wanted.
In 2019, Goop included Dress in its Boston Guide. They had this to say:
On picturesque Charles Street in Boston’s Beacon Hill, Dress is the boutique for the pieces we never knew we wanted. All the bases are covered with clothing, outerwear, shoes, accessories, fragrance, and jewelry. Dress champions smaller, more niche designers, with significant square footage allotted to Americans brands, like Clare V, Nili Lotan, and Janessa Leone. The store itself is a serene space to shop, with extra-roomy dressing rooms we wish every store had.
Over the years, we had the honor of receiving several Best of Boston awards from Boston magazine, including Best Women's Clothing, Casual in 2018, as well as Boston's Best awards from The Improper Bostonian, including the award of Boston's Best: Women's Clothing in 2018.
