...to mark the start of astronomical spring! Dresses available range from sizes 0-16 and include such labels as Alice + Olivia, Tibi, Dries Van Noten, and Roberto Cavalli. Below are our five of our staff's favorite pieces in stock:
Red Berry, sz S, RDB $34
"Nothing says root beer floats and an excuse to wear vintage-inspired pumps quite like this dress." -Nicole
Tibi, sz M, RDB $
"This dress would brighten up any office or party after what has been a very drab winter. This dress says 'Take me out to lunch; I'm worth it.'" -Therese
Moda International, sz 8, RDB $38
"I like to imagine that if the 'little bee girl' from the famous 90s 'No Rain' music video grew up and realized she wanted to be stylish, she would rock this piece in an instant." -Nicole
Lapis/Anthropologie, sz M, RDB $
"I like to refer to this dress as the Da Vinci code dress since it's covered in maps and compasses. I admire the intricate pattern, because a lot of fantastic things are, in fact, complicated--like calculus, or a roadmap of downtown Boston." -Nicole
Laundry Shelli Segal, sz XS, RDB $
"This dress would be perfect for sunset cocktails beachside on a steamy summer day. It has Cape Cod fun written all over it." -Therese

Hello there, ladies. We are pair of lipstick red Jimmy Choo pumps with a split gold-tone heel (sz 5.5, $178). Presently, we are in a bit of a tricky situation—perhaps, you can help.
Once, we lived in a bedroom closet with a bunch of our friends (Chanel flats and Fendi boots, if you’re reading this, we miss you dearly). It was a decent-enough lifestyle, although we were quite sad when our friends seemed to get out more than we did. Hopeless romantics that we are, we continued to hope that perhaps our owner was just saving us for a REALLY special occasion and we knew--just KNEW--that one day she would take us, lovingly, from our box.
One day, indeed, it finally happened. But the outcome wasn’t exactly what we had expected. Delighted to see her, we exclaimed, “Are we going to a ball? How about a romantic date? Oh—we know—an America’s Next Top Model audition? Yes—that must be it. We’ve always wanted to meet Tyra Banks!” Before we could even share our next guesses (high school reunion and Newbury St shopping date, for the record), we found ourselves placed in a bag and brought to the consignment store where we have been staying since.
ReDress Boston is a fabulous place and we have so loved getting to know our new neighbors—including Prada sandals, a 1950s ostrich embossed handbag, and a Gucci bucket bag. However, we are ready to finally find our perfect match. We’re seeking Cinderella and hoping you can help! Would you or one of your size 5.5 friends consider giving us the luxurious, princess lifestyle of our dreams? Oh, say you will!
