This is my second question about Party Girl (if you've seen my previous thread):

"You might fall face-first onto the sidewalk after that buzz-induced dizzy spell, but if you're a Party Girl, you pick yourself up, brush yourself off, and walk back into the club gracefully."

What is "spell" here? A period of time?

Thank you in advance

    Yes a spell is a period of time, typically something short and temporary.
    Hope it helps :)

    I would suggest that "spell", in the context offered, is something more than a period of time, but rather an event, such as loss of memory, consciousness, or suchlike.
