School is out and summer is finally here and I am more obsessed than ever with vintage-inspired dresses! My favorite place to go for these pretty retro style dresses is DressLily. Each time that I am asked to choose some pieces from DressLily to style on my blog, I almost always add at least one vintage style dress to my wardrobe. Check out some of my favorites for summer!

What I really love about DressLily is the amazing selection of unique pieces, the price point is very reasonable, the quality is decent for the price point, and shipping fees are reasonable. Allow enough time for shipping, however, since the products are shipped from China and can often take up to a few weeks to arrive.

And there you have 16 adorable options of Vintage Style Dresses from DressLily and all are under $30! If you are ordering from DressLily, be sure to follow the size guides as the sizing is much different than U.S. sizing. For size reference, I generally need sizes ranging from 3XL to 6XL.

There is also a Huge Independence Day Sale going on at DressLily, so get your favorite pieces now!
