I often highlight finds from big name stores, but I don’t want to neglect some fabulous brands that are only available at boutique stores (which hold a special place in my heart because I have worked in several!). Based out of North Carolina, Marie Oliver dresses are making a name for themselves with their “effortless elegance” look.

I actually spied this silk charmeuse maxi dress in my sister’s closet on our recent family vacation.  (Yes, I am still snooping in my big sister’s closet just like I was doing when I was 14 year old!). But I loved this dress (or “caftan”) so much that I had to share about it!

I never thought I would wear a dress like this before, but it’s flowy fabric felt so good. Comfortable, yet refined – not something you usually see together!

The back is cut beautifully, too.

Definitely a statement dress – perfect if you want to stand out at the next event or party you attend!

Of course, I paired it with a Neely Phelan original.

These beautiful dresses can be found on their website or in boutiques across the country. Mine came from Tulips boutique in Little Rock, AR, which ships around the country. Their owner, Emily Brown, has impeccable taste. (Follow them on Instagram – I have had several friends buy clothes they have featured!).

Don’t forget Father’s Day is just around the corner! Read this post for some great gift ideas!
