HOW TO STYLE FAIRYTALE DRESSES EVERYDAY
Our motto is "Fairytales for everyday day life!".
That is why we are committed to creating sustainable, handmade items that have a magical and fantasy vibe but can still be worn everyday!
How many of you often watch a fantasy or historical movie and, by looking at the gowns women wore, you think:"I would really love to go around wearing that on a daily basis".
Well I did too! I wanted to be able to move around my house as if it was a castle, in my long shiny dresses, with large sleeves, my hair braided and possibly a pet wolf, pet dragon or a horse. I wanted to walk into the forest and feel like a character out of my favorite novels, elegant, ethereal, mystical, fairy-like.
However, my life wasn't just day walks in the forests, photoshoots, cosplays and renaissance fairs. It was school, work, days out with friends, dinners with family, runs to the grocery store, normal walks around town with my boyfriend. And I used to wear jeans and a t-shirt, feeling completely like a fish out of water. I felt like an elvish princess trapped in modern day boring clothes, feeling unable to express my self, my vision of the world, my true essence.
So I started looking for longer gowns, some floral some plain. I paired them with large sweathers and belts, with jackets and cardigans, kimonos and boots. I realized I was almost getting the fairytale look that I wanted, but not quite fully.
So I decided to create my own brand, my own lifestyle brand that would allow people like me to have magical clothing but for everyday life, so they could merge the fantasy vision in their minds with the world outside.
In this little blog post I will introduce you with a couple outfits that will transform our magical gowns into daily wear!
How to wear them everyday
Our Lumi dress, inspired by Moon Moths and the magic of a very famous franchise of books and movies (I think you can guess) comes in two colors, bordeaux red and dark blue.
Digitally printed on a 100% Silk Chiffon fabric with golden stripes this dress is very elegant and yet also easy to wear on a daily basis!
The Lumi can be styled as following in our own personal guide:
- With a warm cardigan and black boots for a warm daily wear
- With an elegant jacket, maybe velvet for extra flare, a belt and heeled suade boots
- With a big neutral sweather and lace boots
The Yule dress, on the other hand, is a silk velvet long dress with an open medieval looking sleeve and an embroidered Moon moth on the top.
We wanted to create something very festive and magical for winter, warm and yet ethereal.
The dress, as the shooting shows, is a very fairytale and magical gown but it can none the less be style for everyday wear!
This is how we styles this magical piece:
- An elegant jacket to be worn at the work place with boots and a little heel maybe
- Just a long coat for a walk in the winter weather around town
- With a long cardigan and a belt for a more relaxed winter look

The Etoile Kimono
This Kimono made of silk velvet can be honestly styles with anything, it is extremely easy to wear both for a casual day and a formal/elegant evening.
However we still wanted to suggest some options.
We personally styles it with leggings and a shirt and with the Marylou dress, but it can be styles also with:
- Tight jeans of almost any colors and a plan top with normal boots
- High-waisted pants and a crop top and Dr Martins
- With a pair of long flowy pants, a crop top and sandals
- With a little black dress and heels
This dress was one of our best sellers due to the beauty of the prints (the rabbit in orange, the wolf in green and the fox in red), and thanks to also the comfortable style of this winter piece.
It is made of 100% sustainable fabrics, Tencel and organic cotton, and thick enough to be perfect for the fall season.
We think this dress can be styles in so many ways for everyday use but we gave you our pick:
- With a pink blazer and a belt for a work wear style, with heels or high heeled boots
- With a warm sweather or cardigan, and a belt, for a more day to day look and paired with low boots
- Since this dress comes in different colors it can be fun to play with accessorizes as well
Also known as the skirt version of the Willow dress the fern is really easy to pair with both tops and sweathers for the winter.
Here is a possible solution to style this very magical skirt!
The Luna is a super magical dress with loa
ds of lace and a high neck. It's not extremely long and it has two hems on the skirt.
The front part of this dress is transparent and lacy, the back has a little opening and the sleeves are long with a lace little border.
We consider this a summer spring dress but it can be honestly styles for every seasons with the right kind of layers.
We styled it as follows:
- With heels and a black blazer (and a long coat) for a night out at the theater or at a dinner with your boo
- With a lovely hat and a long cardigan (+ belt), suade high boots and a big purse for a daily fashionable activity such as lunch or brunch out
This dress doesn't require much effort.
It is a fox embroidered long linen apron that can go above big sweathers in winter and little shirts in summer, like the Rowan shirt we created for this piece.
Here we just styled it with the Rowan, a coat and brown short boots and to us it looked perfect for a casual activity.
The Astra on the other ned is one of those dresses we think can be worn only at a wedding.
We proved you wrong.
The Astra is perfect also for fun and elegant nights out, such as a night at a concert or a festival.
It is also great for a party with friends in the summer if dressed down with a cowboy hat and a jeans jacket!
this dress, named after my dads wife, is beautiful and made in cord.
It is logically a winter dress so we decided to style it with winter clothes.
We styled it with two different sweathers, one in and one out.
One will give more of a Viking look and it can be won on a casual basis while the darker look is sober and perfect for work, if you work in a n office.
This 100% Tencel dress is made for summer but can be styled with both a very casual jeans jacket for spring or a sweather of neutral colors for winter as you can see from our images below!
