For The Love of the Enchantress Dress
Ive been wearing these dresses ever since I swore off all my black clothing. I looked around my world one day and realized that there were so many oppressed women in the world that have to wear black. I realized that many women choose to wear black because they think its slenderizing. I realized that black clothing reduces us. I realized my black wardrobe was a way of conforming to my insecurities and interfered with expressing my feminine energy. I decided I wanted to be more, not less!
These dresses are very well made. All seams are surged and finished. They are generously fashioned with acres of fabric and details of lace. The satin plackets of eyelets and lacings are a romantic trademark. The bodice comes to a point in the front and in the back of most designs. Each design is given a special title. The Enchantress and the Legend are the longest in the waist. The lace bodices are lined with knit for comfort and breathability. They are made of cotton, rayon and nylon lace, and are expertly, integrally and richly tie-dyed in lush colors. Sometimes they come in solids.
Note: Prices may vary in shipments.
May we all embrace our Aphrodite energies!
Individual Dress Descriptions
The Jezebel - $229
This style has a very full circle skirt, and is sleeveless. It has a lace fitted bodice to the waist, and low back with a satin placket of eyelet lacings from tailbone to mid back (it measures about 8 1/2 inches with 6 pairs of eyelets a nice detail).
The Enchantress $249
This style also has a very full circle skirt again. Cut low in the front and back, it has a longer fitted lace bodice than the Jezebel which comes to a point in front and back a few inches above the pubic bone. It laces up both sides, as well (9 rows of eyelets in front, 8 in back the placket of eyelets measures about 14 inches from breast bone down the front). It has fitted sleeves to the elbow that fall into a long oval lace drape measuring 15 inches at the longest point. This style is very beautiful .
The Legend $239
This dress also has a full circle skirt, is sleeveless and features a lace fitted bodice with a piece of fabric matching the skirt gathered and inset at the bust. It laces high up the back, however it can be worn backward for those who are not too busty. I wear mine backward all the time. I get to choose, so it feels like I have two dresses in one.
The Worship $249
This style has yet another full circle skirt and features fitted lace sleeves to the elbow which then open into a fabulous four corner cut off the elbow drape that measures 11-12 inches long trimmed usually in black lace*. The bodice is made of rich black stretch velvet . The velvet cuts out under the bust for an insert of the skirt fabric and complementary lace. Black ribbon is woven back and forth across the bust for another romantic touch (Ive seen people wear them arranged differently). This is a very slenderizing dress with a very bewitching glamour to it. Most likely because of the black details.
The Pirate Dress $249
This dress is similar to the Worship dress in how it utilizes black velvet at the bodice and scoops under the bust. The sleeves and bust are made of the same soft rayon as the full circle skirt. The sleeves are gathered off the shoulder and then gathered at the cuff. You may also push it up to the elbow. Very tavern wench-like!
The Victoria Dress $298
This one laces up the bodice front and back with ribbon ties. Long lace sleeve that are looser at the wrist. Double layered skirt of complete lace trimmed in more lace. It features a long waist line. The skirt edges are flutted instead of circle cut, so I consider it mid- length. Very feminine and very Victorian.
The Victoria Skirt $149
This is a two piece version of the same idea as the Victoria Dress except it may be more versatile. You can wear the skirt at the waist, or on the hips if you like a bare midriff. Cute! You can wear each with other pieces of your wardrobe.
The Camelot Dress $395
This is a super deluxe and heavenly version similar to an Enchantress dress. It laces up the front in an hour glass corsetted formation (the Enchantress is more straight laced than this one). It has a second layer of skirting, lace side drapes, as well as a chiffon triangle drape off the shoulders in the back. The sleeve has a lace puff to the middle of your upper arm and then drops to a double sleeve. The inside lace sleeve comes to a point over your hand while the outside sleeve is a heavier bell that drops to a long point toward the ground ala Camelot style! The neck line is open and the sleeves can either be worn up with your bra strap or you can wear a corset beneath and let the sleeves fall romantically off the shoulder. (I have one in Bottle Green and its my favorite.) Its great for Renaissance Fairs, May Day Celebrations, Solstice Feasts and enchanting evenings. Men go wild and women feel beautiful!
The Camelot Wedding Dress $425
The Camelot Gauntlet $149
White Lady Briar Wedding Dress $385
Rich white lace bodice, with a small off the shoulder puff sleeve trimmed in more lace. Low Victorian front ( perfect for a corset underneath). Laces up the front with a very flattering hourglass opening, cut to a low point in front and back lengthens the waist. The skirt is two layers of soft white chiffon on top of linen. Two swags of long lace cloth frame the hips. Sweet and romantic.
Fluted Dress $219
The shorter fluted dress sometimes comes in amazing solid colors as well as tie dyed colors. It is full, but isnt circle cut. Rather its pieced together into a star cut of 12 points with insets of lace as a detail. It comes to about mid-calf. Its sleeveless and laces up the front with 5 eyelets. I like to wear this one with a longer silk circle skirt beneath in a complementary color because I like longer skirts but this is a popular dress just the way it is.
Fairy Jacket $139
Sometimes I see childrens dresses. I gave one to a friends 8-year-old daughter who loves it so intently. Its one of her most favorite and special possessions. I think it was $80.
