Hands down, my favorite place to look for colorful maxi dresses is Nordstrom Rack. I scored some stellar Felicity and Coco maxis there this past winter for my trip to Hawaii, and I recently stopped in over my lunch break and found this fun Maggy London dress. I’m a big fan of Maggy London’s colorful, ladylike dresses, but generally the price tag tends to be a bit high for me–unless, that is, I’m shopping at the Rack. I got this one for just under $40.
I’m currently in the market for a similar bag to this one–just a touch smaller and in lighter leather. After searching through my favorite brand’s offerings–Kate Spade, Rebecca Minkoff, etc.–I was feeling bored, so I decided to try a different approach altogether. I went to Etsy and searched for handbag shops in Chicago, and found several great options. I was particularly enamored with smallqueue. I may be adding this bag to my collection soon. The bag in this post, while I love it, is from a generally cheap overseas retailer, which I’ve vowed to avoid in the future. Do you have any experience handbag shopping on Etsy? If so, was it positive? Do you have any tips?
