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.

Trashy Diva Green Kimono Obi

7 Apr

Trashy Diva  is known for having gorgeous and unique prints.  They are also known for producing very limited runs of these beautiful prints.  One of my recent favorites is the Green Kimono print.  This print comes in several styles that you can check out here. I chose the Obi style mostly because the black panels give such a great contrast and make this a very unique dress.  Often times with vintage inspired clothing, you sort of end up with the same thing over and over again.  With Trashy Diva you are always getting something unique of impeccable quality.

The Green Kimono Obi is made from a luxurious Rayon Crepe de Chine fabric.  It’s a light weight fabric that has a little bit of weight giving it a nice draping effect.  This dress could easily be worn in colder weather with boots or during the Spring and Summer with nice sandals or heels. I chose to wear it with my Michael Kors studded wedges for a modern twist.  The cut is super flattering and falls slightly off the shoulder (helpful hint: pin the keyhole at the shoulder to your bra strap to keep it from falling off. Unless of course, you want it to fall off. That’s ok too.)

Love it?  Go get it now.  Trashy Diva sells out FAST.

 

Heartbreaker is Killing Me!

27 Oct

So, I admit I am pretty loyal to Pinupgirl Clothing when it comes to buying new dresses.  And I still love them so very much, but this season Heartbreaker may be winning over my heart.  Their Fall and Winter lines are beautiful.  They feature such lush fabrics with peacocks, florals and metallic prints.  I only have one Heartbreaker dress in my vast collection of dresses (the diner dress) but have a feeling that over the next few months, I will have several.  Take a look at some of my favorites from the this-could-be-vintage collection here and start making your list! And this is just a small sampling of my favorites.  These glorious fabrics are also featured on skirts as well as various dress cuts.  YUM…
