Feeling the sea breeze in none other than my beautiful Sleeping Gypsy mini! I seriously can't get enough of this beauty! The lovely linen garment was made partly by hand, taking several days to complete the embroidery with traditional craftsmanship techniques. The Sleeping Gypsy collections are inspired by Ukrainian national clothes called "Vyshyvanka", made with bright colors and patterns for the bohemian woman!
I chose to put "The Metal Romantic" spin on the styling of the traditional dress by throwing on a pair of T.U.K Footwear Baby Blue Creepers and Tuleste for Ban.do Pom Pom Earrings, to "punk it up" a bit. Since my personal aesthetic is an equal marriage of bohemian styles mixed with punk accents, I felt this was the best representation of ME and MY style for spring!
There's nothing quite like owning a garment with an incredible story to tell! This beautiful dress speaks for itself, with an inspiring underlying history behind each and every thread! The incredible hard work that is goes into making each and every Sleeping Gypsy garment is an inspiration in itself! I'm personally looking forward to cherishing this beauty for years to come!
