House of Skye
House Of Skye
Package from @wanderwithmesa on IG
Lovely packaging and amazing customer service. Owner went above and beyond to send me sizing details, product information and photos of the styles on, up close , etc.
Shipping was very fast for international shipping and all items arrived wrapped beautifully and in perfect condition.
I have been a long time lover of Spell Design, or Spell and the Gypsy collective from Australia so I have been keeping an eye out on some other brands like Auguste the Label and Arnhem, when this amazing brand House of Skye caught my attention.
I fell in love with their Flamenco skirt and then once I visited their website only to see they also have fun, vintage vibe graphic tops I was hooked. The skirts were sold out on the House of Skye website but after commenting on one of her photos on IG she directed me to @WanderwithMesa and they had this color in my size in stock, Thank you Natasha from HOS for that helpful hint because Wander with Mesa was amazing to work with going totally above all expectations. Then also had the graphic tank in white with Stardust Soul and then other styles/colors that I have recently purchased.
I made my first purchase from the House of Skye website, grabbing the Wild as West graphic tank in rustic, along with pre ordering the Jipsee Days Flamenco skirt in Sunset Sky. This collection has feathers, cattle skulls, and cactus very Arizona desert inspired with awesome graphic tanks to go with, and of course matching blouses. You can get the Desert Rose red or Sunset Sky orange in the fabric for the skirt and blouses. The graphic tanks currently are sold out but come in rustic brown and dark washed grey, there are more coming soon in new colors possibly. They go so amazing together with the color and fabric design, matching the graphic tank designs, total match made in the desert. Has a very earthy desert tone and style to it, she nailed it perfectly calling the collection Lost in Arizona. These patterns and colors are totally my style because I love everything southwestern with cattle skulls, cactus, feathers and more. Can't wait for my new pieces to arrive, should be here when I return from Spring break.
The Flamenco skirt above is a S/M and runs true to size I normally wear a S sometimes M in Spell skirts and this one fits perfectly. The colors are super vibrant and great for spring/summer. Fabric is light weight, soft and the pattern is really beautiful.
My Stardust Soul white graphic tank is M/L and fits me good, I may have been able to wear a S/M but being larger busted didn't want to take any chances in case it didn't fit. Also these items were sold out very fast and hard to come by so I wanted to make sure I secured one skirt and top. The tank is soft cotton and the pattern is very nice. They go perfectly together and also are versatile for styling or mixing and matching with other skirts, denim, and then lots of top options for styling with the skirt.
I only tried these on quickly as I have had a lot of stuff going on personally in my life and did not have time to style outfit or even iron. I am already waiting for another flamenco skirt and one of the wrap style skirts from this same collection, one with purple and the other blue looking tones. I have a grey Gypsy tank and white with blue print tank on hold waiting for my payment. I can't wait to have more colors and styles to wear for spring and summer. I think this skirt being light weight then shorter in the front with long maxi length back is perfect for walks on the beach as well as summer adventures. Color makes me happy and this entire collection is filled with vibrant beautiful colors.
Be sure to check out House of Skye on their website link below, and see their latest collection Lost in Arizona. I am working on the outage flamenco skirt and red Dallas skirt with a couple tanks that will look perfect with the skirts.
Hope you enjoy my review on this new brand I came across, they have been around for a little while but I only first discovered them in the fall, winter of 2016.
Have a lovely weekend and Happy Spring to all. Hope everyone has safe and fun spring break vacations, Peace love and light always xoxo
