    One of our favourite women’s clothing brands of the moment – Spell & the Gypsy Collective

    Amassing almost 1 million followers on Instagram, Spell & the Gypsy Collective has grown from a local Byron Bay brand to an international cult favourite on social media, known for its festival and resort bohemian-inspired clothing. The two sisters Isabella and Elizabeth Briedis started off selling jewellery at the local markets about a decade ago, and since then the brand has evolved into a complete lifestyle brand for the boho-inspired style, with spinoffs into bridal wear and children’s clothes, and is stocked at the top US e-commerce site likes Free People, Shopbop and Revolve. We take a deeper look into why we’re so obsessed with this brand lately:

    SUMMER LOVIN’ -FRUITS SAFARI

    I am so in love with everything from this ebay store. Love the bright colours for summer, usually it’s not my thing but these quirky vintage prints are so special, you’ll never find them in Zara. Really like that they are flowery & bright & full of quirky designs like fruits, safari prints, etc. So different from the somewhat hideous color blocking trend I’ve seen everywhere right now ( i don’t know why these have turned out so fugly? maybe they overdid the prada copies!!), but still so on point in terms of colors (love the rose coral & teal!, mixed with mauve, dusty pinks & faded blues) & just something so fun…
