The Fashion Magpie Misa Summer Dress

Summer Dresses Under $100.

I have about a dozen pretty summer dresses chilling in my digital shopping cart right now.  Some are higher-end, like the floral beauties I waxed poetic about here, but I thought I’d share a couple of summer dress steals — all under $100!

This OTS mini looks an awful lot like a MISA dress shown above (also love this season’s colorway) I was swooning over a few months ago — but at a fraction of the price!

A playful striped midi (looks like an MDS Stripes dress!)

An elegant polka dot midi (I would wear this all the time — so easy and flattering!)

This flirty floral

A striped shirtdress never lets me down (currently wearing one myself)

This striped, smocked-waisted dress is totally my speed

And — OK, this is $5 over-budget — this sweet polka dot number

This floral maxi

Not a dress, but I love this breezy jumpsuit!  It reminds me of a LoveShackFancy style I was eyeing earlier this week…

Shop Le Post.

P.S.  With all of these new dresses in the mix, you might want to snag a set of these — they are supposed to be amazing!  They’re super slim and the clear acrylic means that they are virtually invisible to the eye, removing some of the heft and clutter we all hate in our closets.  If Mr. Magpie wouldn’t think I was an insane person, I would chuck all of our hangers and replace with these, but — alas.  I’ll start with one pack and gradually weave them in?

P.P.S.  Do yourself a favor and invest in one of these.  I steam everything before wearing it.  I actually use this less expensive travel style (only $20!), but have heard the Rowenta one is *next level* and I’m inclined to trust that review because I invested in a Rowenta iron and my life has changed.  OK, that’s a little dramatic — but the results are super obvious.  And our nanny, who kindly handles all of mini’s ironing, raves about it, too.

P.P.P.S.  There are so many Hermes Oran sandal lookalikes out right now — these look to be the best quality IMO!  I splurged on Le Real Deal and wear them with EVERYTHING.  Jeans, sundresses, shorts, etc.  It all works.  If you also want to splurge, but not to the tune of $700, check out these fun Loeffler Randalls.  I’m in love with them.  Select colors are on sale!

  1. Yessss I just bought a Rowenta steamer and I actually look for excuses to use it. Nothing makes me feel as polished as a freshly steamed blouse or dress!

  2. I second your sentiment about steaming!! Ever since you wrote in one of your recent posts that you steam everything before you wear it, and it feels like you are wearing new clothes everyday, I have been doing the same, and it has literally changed my wardrobe. From simple white tees to dressy cocktail dresses, I leave my steamer out on my counter now (I actually have the same one you do, and I adore it!), and use it on a daily basis. Everything feels so fresh. Thanks for sharing so many beautiful dresses for summer!!

    1. You are so right, Nicole! “It feels like you are wearing new clothes everyday.” The best feeling! So glad you agree 🙂
