If you've ever felt like you were born in the wrong decade and romantic, ruffled dresses are where you feel most at home, you are going to drool over these dreamy dresses from Wynsum Wardrobe! Don't miss the details below on how to enter the giveaway!
My husband and I have watched in envy as most of our married siblings have traveled to beautiful places together. We had children early and close together to it's been hard to plan anything even within a 30-minute drive away from our kids, but now that we're finally finished with grad school and our baby will be over a year old, we are planning a dreamy trip to Italy! It will be our 10-year anniversary and I am dedicating the next few months to planning the best vacation to date. My priorities are probably completely skewed, but at the top of my to-do list is compiling a travel wardrobe that is the essence of curated, stylish, flattering, and pretty!
I was scrolling through Instagram and instantly fell breathtakingly in love this striking lemon dress from Wynsum! I couldn't stop thinking about it! I'm so happy to say that it is the first statement piece in my travel suitcase. At no cost to facilitate this review, I'm thrilled to be able to share my thoughts and ultimately offer a giveaway prize of any Wynsum dress of your choice!
Wynsum comes from the Old English word for beauty, joy, and delightful, and two women have created a line of currently nine different dresses that perfect for so many occasions. They are feminine, dripping with ruffles and details, fully lined, and designed with love in Australia. Wynsum Wardrobe has a goal to make dresses that make women feel confident, capable, and empowered.
The feature that stood out to me most when I first saw this Nell Lemon Wrap Dress was the gorgeous lemon print! This is a limited edition design and an exclusive hand painted print by a UK artist. I'm sure we're all in agreement that the lemon print is what really makes the dress. Lemons are such a popular fruit in fashion right now! This dress was so intentionally chosen for my Italy vacation wardrobe because of how lemons are ubiquitous in Italy. They cover the Amalfi Cost and Sorrento and I'm told can be the size of softballs at fruit stands. I cannot tell you how much I am anticipating eating limoncello and lemon gelato in the dress IN ITALY this Spring!
Honestly, I've never had a dress quite so flowy and ruffled as this, so I was surprised by how much I was drawn to it from the start and how much more I love it after trying it on. The large ruffles along the hem almost reach the floor behind me when I'm in flats, but I'm only 5' 2" and a hair of wedge sandals go great with it. I really appreciate how it is fully lined so there is no need to layer on extra slips or camisoles underneath.
Being a seamstress, I pay close attention to the details, like the way the raw edges of the sleeves are finished with a delicate wrapping stitch, or the way the pom scalloped trim looks hand-sewn on after construction. I love the extra long ties, the assymetrical hem, and the cool, comfortable feel of the luxe poly faille fabric.
This summer statement piece is a perfect dress for weddings, vacations, and date nights! I can't wait to wear it again and again over the years. It makes me feel like Demelza and Elizabeth Bennett and Rose Dawson. Thank you, Wynsym! I'm so honored to showcase your launch collection and share with our readers my favorite of your beautiful dresses.
