Best Dress Store for People in Their 40’s

Editors' Pick

Julia Farr

When big-name 40-somethings such as CNN’s Dana Bash want to make a big impression, they head to Julia Farr, a tiny, 5-year-old boutique in half of a cottage on the D.C. side of Chevy Chase. Owner Farr, a slender glamazon (and recovering lawyer), knows her high-profile professional customers and caters to them with tasteful cocktail dresses, including a full-skirted Audrey Hepburn-esque number in dusty pink by Halston ($595) and a Sachin & Babi Noir strapless stunner in an orange-and-white floral print ($950). You’ll also find a range of event-ready accessories, such as beaded clutches and unique wraps.
