The experience of shopping at clothing boutiques is something most of us have come to love. Personally, I would dream of having one day a week where I could just hunt for good boutiques. Frequently, we covet the boutique shopping experience because it enables you to find new and sometimes new to you designers and all too often distinctive styles or pieces that you wouldn’t find somewhere else. Despite all of these benefits, finding these seemingly elusive boutiques and finding a boutique that fits your style or even finding one with your busy schedule is often difficult as they are typically not in the mall or typical shopping spots. Frequently, clothing boutique shopping trips are full of hassles finding their locations and then once you find the shop then you discover that they closed early that day or opened later. Thankfully, those hassles have become things of the past as clothing boutiques are moving online and the online clothing boutique is quickly becoming the first stop shopping location.
The ability to find so many great clothing boutiques online has really changed the way that shopping for clothing has previously been done. The new clothing boutique online is advantageous because it really does eliminate many of the hassles of boutique shopping. For example, with the clothing boutique online, you now can shop in your time frame (frankly even in your pajamas) and spend as long as you want on the site. You can also more easily find upcoming or indie designers and pieces that still give you that exclusivity that not everyone will have the same top. Another benefit to online shopping that you can find at some clothing boutiques online are things like free shipping and often even free returns. These customer friendly policies minimize the risks of ordering online with sizes and fit. Good clothing boutiques online will also have a lot of images of the pieces styled on models such as Lookbooks which are also a helpful advantage as it gives you more ways to visualize and see a piece before you buy it.
Shopping at clothing boutiques online also helps you to pinpoint which designers you are looking for and search online to find shops or boutiques that carry them. You can search by individual pieces or styles and spend more time comparison shopping which you would never have done in the traditional clothing boutique. New websites like boutiques.com or like.com have taken boutique comparison shopping to a whole new level. Don’t forget you can also search for coupons or even promotions online as well. Such advantages really do make you a more educated shopper and help enable you to find the best deal which in the current economy really can help make the typically more expensive boutique pieces more affordable and attainable. As an online clothing boutique, at Vintage Fringe, our goal is to have your love your clothes as much as we do and to always have your friends asking “Where did you get that?” Clothing boutiques online are a great trend that is here to stay and we are confident that you’ll find shopping online with us a great experience.
It’s the perfect time of year to be shopping for Long sleeve dresses. We love finding stylish dresses and especially love finding distinctive styles to wear for special occasions or just for fun. Pairing dresses with boots, leggings, scarves or even just great jewelry make finding good dresses even more worthwhile. A variety of designers notoriously have great dresses and a variety of long sleeve dresses. Dresses by Velvet by Graham and Spencer have become some of our favorites. They are typically made of their baby jersey or gauzy jersey cotton so they are comfortable, machine washable and wearable which can’t be said for a lot of dresses. Here are a few of our favorite dresses by Velvet this season:
Velvet by Graham and Spencer Freda Gathered Waist Dress – This dress is a classic style, but we love the look of the gathered waist and the deep v neck giving it an elegant feminine look. This dress style reminds us of a vintage Greta Garbo dress. Since the Freda dress is made of a super soft jersey cotton this dress is versatile and works in warm and cool weather a great feature when you are trying to get the most out of every purchase these days. One of my favorite things about this dress is that it is available in black, navy and white. We love the look of the white dress in the spring and warmer weather as it is not a dress color you find every day.
Velvet by Graham and Spencer Doreen Cutout Dress – A truly fashionable classic long sleeve dress with a bit of an edge. The Doreen dress features long sleeves with cutouts on each arm just at the base of the shoulders. Lengthwise it hits our models at about mid-thigh so it pairs perfectly with boots, and leggings or tights. It is currently available at Vintage Fringe in Gazelle, a great purple color so it goes wonderfully with blacks and greys. We love the cutout look giving this dress an added twist and the fitted look. We are so hooked on boots and leggings this year that this dress is a must have this season.
Velvet by Graham and Spencer Zahara Knot Dress – A timeless dress the Zahara Knot dress features an A line skirt and a knot at the base of the v neckline. With long sleeves as well, this dress is another versatile piece for cold and warm weather. We love the simple, but elegant look of this dress and again the colors. It is available at Vintage Fringe in Rain (a light blue), Black, Chisel (Grey), and Lilypad (Green). The neckline on this dress is very flirty and distinctive and takes a classic style up a notch.
As you can see, long sleeve dresses can come in many styles and designs and naturally you have to find the right style for you, but we think you’ll find that these long sleeve dresses by Velvet are great additions to your wardrobe and many of them can be classic pieces that will not be out of style next season.
