Trashy Diva: Fangirling for Red Fans

14 Jul

So before I jump into my uber love for Trashy Diva, you may be asking yourself “who is this?  Is this a REAL blogpost?” The answers are, it’s me! And Yes! I know I have been seriously slacking on the blog front (helloooo my last post was in 2015!) but y’all keep clicking and coming by and I appreciate you so much.  Seriously. Ok enough about me, let’s move on to TRASHY MUTHA FUCKIN’ DIVA.

If you follow me on Instagram you know I am borderline obsessed with Trashy Diva clothing.  And if you don’t follow me, do it (@ditadoll). I am not just obsessed because everything they make is magic (it is) or because I love that every new collection is limited (it is). I adore them because they are so well designed and so well made.  They actually fit a variety of silhouettes and always in a flattering way.  Don’t believe me? Hop on over to Facebook and check out our I’m a Trashy Diva page to see pretty babes being babely.

Their latest print release, based off of a vintage pattern discovered by the lovely and talented Candice Gwinn, feels like it was made for me.  Favorite color red? Check. Asian themed print? Check. Pockets? Check. FANS? Check. You can check out the full release of Red Fans here.

I decided to go with the Anne cut. I have long been a fan of her big sister, Annette, which has a more gathered, full skirt and a slightly shorter length, so I had to meet her little sophisticated sister, Anne.  I ordered my regular size 10 in Trashy Diva and it was perfect.  I currently measure 40″ bust 30″ waist.  It is made of a lightweight stretch cotton for comfort. And as I squealed about before, it has pockets.  I wore this all day without a purse, and let’s be honest, without a bra.  I feel like the Anne gives really good support due to the adjustable straps.

I paired it with the beautiful wooden fan Trashy Diva sent out with my purchase (thank you!), the stunning Rosita Bonita Chinese Lantern necklace which is reversible, and my very favorite shoes, my Lucky Lou Shoes Rockin’ Tikis (comfortable and gorgeous!)

As of yesterday, because I love this print so much, I also preordered the Virginia Shirtwaist Dress. This one is set to release on 7/30 and you can bet that when I get it, I’ll be plastering it’s gloriousness all over Instagram.

Pinup Couture in Wonderland Starring the Alice Ella

11 May

Many things make me happy in the world.  One of those things is the gloriousness of Pinup Girl Clothing and their lusciously unique designs.  Another thing is Disney’s Alice in Wonderland.  Alice in Wonderland has long been my favorite Disney film.  I remember watching the VHS over and over and over again as a child. I would get so lost in the fantasy world that laid out before me and Alice herself.

Fast forward to a few (ahem) years later and not much has changed.  I still love Alice and the otherworldly world it created.  When I heard that PUG was releasing some new designs into their Fairytale Fantasy collection I was excited.  When I heard that one of those new designs would feature an Alice print?  I lost my shit.  Like, lost it. For real.  I’ll never know for sure but in my own mind I am convinced I was the very first person to order it.  I stalked the site everyday like a psycho and hit buy as soon as I could.

The artwork by the very talented Stephanie Buscema is even more amazing in person.  This dress features Alice falling down the rabbit hole (I mean look at how cute her little face is!), the white rabbit and his trusty pocket watch, a dormouse, little teacups and saucers, the cheshire cat, Mr. Caterpillar and other adorable potions surrounded by a cyclone of flowers and swirlies. The print comes in the Ella Dress which I chose and also in the Doris skirt.

I squealed out loud when I opened up the package.  I ordered the medium and it is a bit snug on me (39-29) but I also ordered a large and that was too loose for my taste so I stuck with the smaller size and am glad I did because as I wore it, it did seem to give a little.

The construction of this dress is beautiful and very flattering.  The top is gathered at the bust and had adjustable straps.  The waist is constructed in a way that sucks you in and then the skirt is just yards of magic. AND there are pockets.  I love pockets, and they are completely hidden.  This dress sold out in most sizes at lightning speed.  There are still some smalls on the site though!  And the good news is they will be restocking soon and you can sign up to be notified when they restock.  It will be worth the wait.

Go off and be wonderful!

Deadly Hot: The Hot Rod Honey Swing Dress by Deadly Dames

16 Mar

This is my new favorite thing.  Years ago Pinup Girl Clothing released a collection of tattoo print dresses with original Flash tattoo designs by the amazing Micheline Pitt.  Once these adorable dresses were gone, they were gone and coveted for years by us die hard fans on Ebay and all over the web.

Turns out the PUG fairies heard our collective pleas and granted us one very wonderful wish: This stunning print is back and better than ever in the form of their new style, The Hotrod Honey Swing.

This is the best dress in so many ways.  Aside from the gorgeous print (white stars, pirate babes, mermaids, swallows, lipstick and daggers on a black background), this is THE most comfortable dress you will ever wear.

It’s a super lightweight cotton/lycra blend perfect for Spring.  It has a ton of stretch making it a perfect date dress.  Or a “I’m going to eat my bodyweight in pizza and still look adorable” dress.

It has 3/4 length sleeves and is the perfect length.  I am 5’6″ and it hits me slightly below the knee. It has slight gathering at the waist line for a bit of extra poof.  The belt that comes with it is a faux leather that is vegan friendly and fabulous.
