Happy Friday, Fabulous Followers!!!
Many of you probably know the Marvelous Melissa from "Write it in Lipstick," well, I happen to be a fan of her wonderful dress filled style and belted fashions!
Recently, she wrote me asking if I could find her a long, flowy maxi dress with a large, floppy hat and big sized leather bag Look 4 Less for summer and I was excited to start my hunt!
It sounded like a lovely look and something I thought many might be interested in, including myself. So, below is what I came up with for her, and I actually purchased this very dress online. I have gotten compliments on my Forever 21 maxi dresses in the past and think they hold up pretty well!

I came across some other fun leather bag options as well, which I thought I would post so that Melissa, and even you, would have options as far as the style purse she likes best for the look she hopes to create!
The one I posted with the look seemed a bit more lightweight for summer, but I have to say I love alternate Bag #1 as well and think it would look fantastic too, but might be a bit more perfect for fall.

Alternate Bag #2
I think the above look can be dressed up or down, would look great belted as well with a matching brown leather belt to tie in the bag and neutral hat.
You can always pair it with a little sweater or lightweight jacket in case it gets cool...so it is very versatile!
Happy shopping, Melissa, and I would love to see what you end up purchasing! :) I'll be back this weekend with something fun and on Monday with a Look of the Day!
