Spell and the Gypsy collective, Lotus collection
Spell & the Gypsy Collective
I have been anxiously awaiting the release of the above dress from Spell and the Gypsy, I saw it back months ago when the Spell sisters posted a photo on their social media from a wedding they attended and saw this dress. Blue is my favorite color and I have been looking for a new dress for summer with short sleeves or sleeveless and with that bohemian style I love. Their new Lotus collection dropped last week and then they are dropping the second half of the collection in the next week or so. I was so delighted when they added the Lotus Sleeveless dress in Monaco to their website last Thursday early Friday.
This dress is amazing, the fabric is light weight, with the most beautiful print and colors. Excuse my bare feet whenever I wear Spell I want to add flowers to my hair and dance around barefoot. I also just trued on the dress to see how it fit. I am amazed with the fit, I was worried it would be very loose since I had to size up being larger busted and had planned I would probably need a belt, but this dress fits amazing. It has a box stitch with crochet detail bust, button closure and then lovely frill trim to the sleeveless top. The top of the neck line has a tie you can use or I left it untied for the photos here. The frill trim is also around the box detail and neckline. It then flows down to a lovely dropped waist and flairs out with layers of lovely fabric, and trim detail along the bottom. I have a pair of blush platform sandals with wood heel and base coming to wear with it. Of course I plan to wear shoes lol, when I wear it out.
Here you can see a closer look at the detail of the print and colors. Also you can see the crochet trim around the box front, some of the lovely frill details and the lovely blue trim that goes around the bottom of this sleeveless maxi dress. I am so in love with this print and color I want to get the blouse and mini skirt also, but for now went with this dress and then will get more items from top 2 for sure.
I tried the lovely older version of Spell's intimates. I am a XL and normally wear a 34/36 DDD. These fit so amazing and are super comfy, I got these to wear under the dress since it has the buttons in front and also the crochet detail so you wouldn't see through but white would work fine also. I was hoping to try the new lace intimates but worried they won't fit me being larger busted, waiting to see what other ladies have to say. I went with the sienna color way also, I have plans to order this color way in upcoming items being dropped in the next week or two. Of course you all know me I will be getting the graphic tee or singlet also. They have an amazing Stay wild moon child tee, tank and raglan coming for this collection, the graphic will go amazing with the entire collection but I personally love them with the Sienna colors.
Hope everyone has had a great first week of summer and happy shopping. Be sure to head over to the Spell site to sign up for email updates and promotions, also to shop the latest and all collections available.
