When it comes to shopping, heading to the mall can be a huge hassle. It always seems like no matter how often I go, it’s always the same old thing! That’s why I’ve started doing my boutique-ing online. I’m going to be highlighting some of my favorite online boutiques that sell dresses, tops, and accessories at affordable prices. As you know, I’m all about a bargain, and I recently discovered that EVERY SINGLE ITEM at my absolute fave store is 50% off right now! As a blogger with an affinity for affordable fashion, I knew right now was the perfect time to pass along this info to you so that you can snap up any of these looks at a steal. I’ll also be doing a regular style feature where I focus on specific online stores I love to shop at. These stores are all be tried and tested, so you know the sites are legit and you’re not going to be spending hard-earned money and time waiting for an order that never arrives- or even worse yet, having your credit card information stolen (which happened to me at a different store, but that’s another story for another time!)
Anyways, today I’ll be focusing my attention on Lily Boutique. This is an awesome site for dresses at affordable prices. Everything on Lily Boutique looks like it is straight out of a fairy tale. They have a lot of flowy, girly dresses made of lace and chiffon. There also have a lot of beaded and embellished styles I’m loving- some of them look like they are straight out of The Great Gatsby.
So many of their dresses are great for upcoming weddings and events. I’ve purchased several dresses from them and they fit perfectly, and I received tons of compliments when I wore them. Their sizes are juniors sizes so they are a little smaller than misses sizes, but you can use their size chart to determine what size to order. I’ve had good luck at this website and just recently bought 4 gorgeous dresses for different events plus a cute blazer to wear to work.
Today I’m going to post some of my favorite pieces from Lily Boutique and also tell you about the things I look for when shopping online. Here is what I’m loving at Lily Boutique:
Lily Boutique has some of the cutest dresses I’ve seen in a long time. When I checked the site, there were over 800 dresses to choose from in all different styles and colors. If your specific size is out of stock, you can turn the ‘Notify on Restock’ link on to receive an e-mail notification if they get the size in you are looking for.
This red dress is simple yet unique. I like the high neckline with the keyhole cutout at the top. I can see myself wearing it to a holiday party. A-line dresses are super flattering and tend to look great on every woman.
You can’t go wrong with this purple lace dress with an asymmetric hemline. The bright magenta color is to die for! The asymmetric hemline gives this classic sheath dress a bit of an edge. I can see this worn with beige pumps to a cocktail party or just a dinner out with friends.
Stripes are a great flattering summertime wardrobe staple and this striped dress is hard to beat. I normally see striped dresses in basic colors like black and white, etc. but I love the combination of grey and white together as it is softer than darkcontrasting colors- but it is still neutral. The dress also has a flattering cut and neckline.
Amazing Prices and Free Shipping Over $75:
Usually when something seems too good to be true, it is. But not in this case! Prices at Lily Boutique are normally in the $30-$60 range, but with everything being half off right now, they are an even bigger steal! It almost seems too good to be true, but trust me, I’ve ordered from them and they are legit! The quality is perfect on all the dresses I’ve received from them. Now is the time to grab your favorite looks at the sale prices because I have no idea how long it will last.
In addition to the sale prices, there is FREE shipping on orders over $75 within the United States. I only needed to buy 2 or 3 dresses each time I ordered from them to qualify for the free shipping. That sure as heck beats spending gas money to drive to and from the mall only to be disappointed with nothing to show for it except tired feet and time wasted.
They also ship internationally with free shipping over $150 on International orders, so you can shop Lily Boutique from wherever your heart desires.
Just check out all these summer dresses in shades of blue here! The site makes it easy to sort by color and style so you can easily check out exactly what you’re looking for. From lace to printed fabrics to stripes- I’m in love with all of these looks!
It’s perfectly reasonable to be a little nervous when shopping at a new store online for the first time. We are always a little worried about what we are going to get- or if we are going to get anything at all! There are no shortage of stores that are less than trustworthy as well as thieves waiting to steal your credit card information. Lily Boutique has a secure website with SSL security and encryption so you don’t need to worry about credit card safety when you order from them. I’ve ordered from them in the past with no trouble and they shipped out my order within 24 hours. I received a tracking number in an e-mail from them that I was able to use to go online to track the status of my delivery. I actually received my order within 2 days, with just the standard shipping option. You can upgrade to Express shipping for an additional fee if you need something sooner.
The thing you always want to look for on any website when you are checking out online is that the lock icon shows up in your browser window during checkout. That is how you know the site is secure and your credit card information cannot be hacked. Lily Boutique currently accepts all major credit cards and Paypal. If you should have any trouble placing an order or have questions, their customer service is available from 10am-5pm CST Monday through Friday.You can also follow Lily Boutique on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest to get daily updates.
I hope you enjoyed my first post in this series on online boutiques I love. Online shopping is the easiest way to shop where there are thousands of options right at your fingertips. I plan to write more about other favorite shops of mine and hope you’ll check them out too. Be sure to check out this online boutique and let me know what you think in the comments! Give me suggestions if you have any other stores you would like me to check out- I am always open to suggestions!
