I love the casual and pretty dresses from Calypso St. Barth and their summery Mimosa fragrance, so was pleased to see the brand partnered with Target for a limited time this season. I didn't purchase any clothing, but did see a very cute maxi-dress, some pretty island shirts, as well as sleepwear and children's wear. (See Jonesy Loves' feature for more merchandise photos and visit Don't Call Me Jessie who shared photos of her pretty glass votive holders). Here are my little purchases below:
|Cylinder Case $9.99 and Train Case $19.99. Perfect for an island getaway! :)|
|I like the bamboo zipper pulls|
|Votive candle-holder -- is it just me, or does this look a little like a cheese grater? ;)|
|I enjoy the glow of candlelight during movie-nights at home.|
The flameless, tea-light LED candles are great!
Below is the classic Pazzi dress purchased from Calypso St. Barth a few years ago (this is not available at Target, although their Merona brand has produced copies in the past). It's a super-comfortable, shift dress made of silk dupioni. At one time it was available in a wide range of the most beautiful colors. It is still being produced but I noticed it is only offered in a few colors now. It can be belted for a more defined silhouette or worn as is, in the traditional shift dress manner (visit the blog les anti-modernes to see how it looks on).
If you have some free time I recommend visiting the Calypso website for some virtual window-shopping. They are pricey but have great clothing, accessories, and even items for the home, all with an island living aesthetic. Even in times when I can't afford to splurge I still like to look and take away ideas and inspiration, and dream of jetting off for a long stay in an ocean-side villa at a French island resort ... *sigh* ...but it's back to work for me tomorrow! :)
Enjoy your Sunday everyone!
