You Had Me At Hello...


Ikat Caftan Dress from Calypso St.Barth. I am in love with this dress in both colors...so feminine and flowy. Perfect now for warm weather destinations and in the future for the not too distant spring and summer days. :)


xoxo,

  1. Cute! That reminds me...did you get your Lem Lem Patio dress yet? How do you like it?

  2. This is too funny as I tried that dress this morning in the blue colorway. It was very flattering and it is on my wishlist. I was surprised to see that they carry Lemlem, in particular a new gorgeous dress that I have also seen at the Jcrew Collection store. I am also curious about your patio dress.

  3. I love it! I've really had an obsession with ikat lately.

  4. I am obsessed with that store too, FFM. If I could, I would have bought everythng and them moved to an island with the bunch of things I bought.:) Both dresses are so you.

  5. Thanks for stopping by ladies! :)

    AppGal and Ema: My Lemlem Lucy Patio dress did arrive last week. It is too big in the body, which I knew it would be, so I plan to have it taken in for a better fit.

    Ema: Did you try the Calypso dress on in a size 0? What is the navy color like IRL? Is it dark true navy or does it have more of a royal blue tone to it? Btw, the new Lemlem at J.Crew is online now.

  6. Magpie Style: This dress will be great here in Florida...hope I can eventually get it. :)

    Slastena: Thanks! :) I love SO many things on the Calypso website, too! Fortunately for me living in Florida most of them are wearable here in the summertime. I think I will definitely be shopping there this coming year.

    Lake Nokomis: Yes, instant love for me, too! :)


    Have a great day everyone!

  7. I love these for the Spring/Summer! I can imagine how chic they would look with sandals and pulled back hair! This could be my go to outfit for the warmer weather! Thanks!

  8. FFM - Wow. I didn't even know about this website and see so many things I would love to have. Do you know about the sizing. Is it similiar to J Crew?

  9. addicted to jcrew/annTaylor: Yes, this would be a perfect go-to dress for spring and summer. I think you would look beautiful in it, too! :)

  10. LaDolceVita: I haven't placed an order with Calypso yet, but am waiting to receive emails when items I'm interested in come back in stock, including this dress. The sizing appears to run similar/slightly larger than J.Crew...here is the size chart off the website. Click Here. I have also emailed them regarding measurements on specific items and heard back within 24 hours, so you could try that or call them if you're unsure about which size to order. HTH! :)

  11. Yes, I tried a 0. It was perfect but I would need to have it hemmed as I am 5'2". The color is lighter than pictured (it is not navy but a very pretty lighter blue).
    I have ordered two resort dresses from the sale section last week and with the 50% off sale promo they came down to $25 each! They should arrive today and will comment back. The good thing is that there is no fs section right now so even if they don't refund sale items you can exchange or get a credit.
    I find that sometimes their clothes (I mean the Calyosi brand) fit small, especially the tunics. I can get away with a S in those.
