Need something funky and flowing for all those barbecues, picnics and outdoor concerts this summer? Here are some of my favorite shops to stock up on summer dresses.
A little retro hippie, a little beach bum, this outlet has all the basics and funky prints that you didn't know were missing from your wardrobe.
Funky frocks and fun gifts (vampire teeth bottle openers anyone?) at this popular Silver Lake boutique.
Moderately priced Abbot Kinney boutique embraces the Venice vibe with funky home goods, gifts and clothes from Free People and other flowy levels.

Maxi dresses, tie dye tips, swimwear and more beachcomber finds.
Vintage and new maxi dresses, skirts and tops, plus tons of purses and accessories.

Bright dresses, funky sweaters and more for those who want the Urban Outfitters look without the sticker price.
