I was In the beginning stages of developing quite an interest in the brand when this dress came out as part of the Siren Song collection by Spell & The Gypsy Collective in 2017.

I set out to obtain this dress specifically, after having and then selling the mini skirt in the same print. By the time that I was lusting over the Winona slip dress it had sold out everywhere, but luckily I managed to find this one to buy second hand without too much trouble. I wasn't however able to find the dress in my desired size at the time, so this one has had a slight alteration..

Dress: Winona slip - Spell & The Gypsy Collective - (From the Siren Song collection 17')

A tie back has been added to pull in the extra fabric at the waist as the dress is really 1-2 sizes too big for me. I find that the addition of a simple is a great solution in accommodating for a broader size range without having to tamper with with the original design of the dress, this dress would now nicely fit a size 8-12.

Adding a tie at the waist is the easiest solution to downsizing a dress, and the cheapest if you get a seamstress to do it, but anyone with a sewing machine could do it themselves.

A simple slip style floral printed dress is such a versatile piece to have, understatedly flattering and appropriate for almost any occasion (weather providing!) I wear the Winona slip dress both casually - with sandals or jandals to the beach, supermarket, school.. And dressed up with boots and a jacket for a night out, event, or special occasion.

The floral printed slip is a vintage inspired classic style that's super comfortable to wear and so easy to style!
