Fashion Friday: The Dress You Guys Asked About

I’m home sick today, but did not want to leave y’all hanging on a Friday! Last week I had the honor of being one of this year’s recipients of New England Home Magazine’s 5 Under 40 Awards for Interior Design.  I shared some pics on Instagram, and lots of you asked about my outfit.  I chose this grey dress by Badgley Mischka that felt elegant but not TOO formal.  I also loved the high neckline and the fact that it had sleeves (not a big fan of my arms). It’s a great silhouette, and I got lots of compliments.

Here’s a roundup of what I wore (yup, including a Spanx bodysuit!)

This dress comes in black, blue and white and is perfect for anything from a cocktail party to a work event to a wedding.  And speaking of weddings, it also comes in a long option that I think would be an amazing casual wedding dress!



  1. Thank you so much for sharing. You looked elegant and chic at the 5 Under 40 celebration, and many of us ladies wondered about the dress.

  2. You looked stunning. Unique but classy as always.

    Do you use Rent the Runway? I don’t know if they sponsor bloggers, but that would be a match made in heaven (for them), since your fashion eye is so spot on.

  3. Congratulations to you! Onward and upward!! Sorry you’re sick today… it’s not from trying to do too much is it?!?

  4. I wore this for my wedding! I wish I could send a photo via comment. I will try to email it to you in case you’re interested to see it IRL!!!!!

  5. You look stunning (and probably a lot better than you’re feeling today). Sorry you’re sick. If Henry were a little older, he could bring you glasses (plastic of course) of oj to help you heal.

  6. I LOVED this dress on you. SOOOO CLASSY! If my bottom half were a little more svelte, I would get one.
    And this is off the subject, sorta, but I wanted to let you know, that my husband gave me the MFlynn Gates compass necklace for Christmas, in remembrance of my late son. He is in Boston on business now, and picked up the Les Pointe charm with an initial to wear on the necklace, for my birthday. <3
    He ALSO dropped off my engagement ring, with them to be remade for my 35th anniversary. The ladies at MFlynn have sent me GORGEOUS options, that I am considering…
    I would never have found them if it weren't for you. ;)
