The great American pastime of window-shopping is best done during the summer months, when time is spent indoors and there are no obligations to buy holiday gifts. Although you might want to reach for your wallet at every turn, sometimes a lack of funds and/or necessity prevents those impulse purchases. But it can't hurt to look, right? Not everyone can afford a ruby and emerald cocktail ring shaped like a strawberry -- but it's totally reasonable to prepare for if and when that day comes.

Here are 10 of our favorite spots to window shop.

Luxury bath items and laundry detergent at The Willows.
The Willows Home and Garden
French-inspired home furnishings, clothing, and knickknacks fill this Valley boutique, which feels as much like a showroom as a store. Shabby chic is the predominate aesthetic at the Willows. This extends to every piece of merchandise including furniture, bedding, accessories, apparel, and jewelry. The Willows even has an antique birdcage available for $975. Get lost in the racks of hand-dyed linen blouses, lay on a perfectly made bed that costs more than your student loans, and maybe even snack on a homemade Oreo (made in the store) while you're at it. Hand-dyed throw pillows cost anywhere from $175 to $240. The Willows has a collection of hand-picked items to be looked at and potentially bought.

Antique French sign for $1,350 at Trouvé.
Trouvé & Bibiche
Trouvé offers home furnishings and store-within-a-store Bibiche takes care of apparel. Although the clothing is fairly reasonable price-wise, everything else is très cher (that's loosely translated French for keep dreaming). The antique home decor is undeniably beautiful, as is everything else in the newly relocated downtown Scottsdale store. The store is white-washed from floor to ceiling and filled with delicate jewelry and a random assortment of things for the home. Trouvé is heavenly, but the price tags will bring you back down to Earth. A ceramic coffee mug that costs over $114 is probably best for looking and not buying. A majority of the buying for the store is done in France, so the exchange rate isn't so forgiving.
