With rooftop parties kicking in, I needed a cute summer dress to wear. My first stop was Dear Fieldbinder on Smith Street, where I zipped on Corey Lynn Calter’s butterfly-print silk frock. I liked the muted olive green and the boned, corset-style top—which did wonders for my less-than-buxom décolleté. Sadly, the ruffle at the waist and the colorful motif were too girlie for a night out. 198 Smith St., near Baltic St., Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn; 718-852-3620.
