Dresses are big right now, and the best place to find a totally unique dress is Utopia on Broad Street. The tiny operation is surprisingly fashion forward and updated more frequently than you’d imagine. They usually have three sizes of every design, so you gotta snatch what you want while you can. Most importantly, the staff is extremely helpful in a non-intimidating way. If you look like an Italian sausage in the piece you tried on, they won’t point it out rudely, rather they’ll pull out another two gowns in a different fit and help you find something that suggests svelte, not kielbasa, chic.
