Remember when I was head over heels over the newly released Trashy Diva Mahjong print last week? Well here it is, in all its kitschy glory! While I gravitate more towards Trashy Diva's 40's inspired styles (the Ashley dress is my favorite), this 50's inspired Annette dress has rapidly taken my heart. As a novelty print enthusiast, this new collection has my name written all over it. I'm sure you can see why I rushed to put this one in my closet!

I'm glad I didn't hesitate to snag this dress because my size sold out in one day! I'm a pretty true size 4 in Trashy Diva, but at the suggestion of the size chart I went with a 2. It was the perfect fit! Because it's made from a lightweight and summer friendly cotton voile, there isn't much stretch. I'd recommend checking the chart before you purchase just in case. The straps are adjustable, which means it can accommodate my long torso. The skirt is lined and extremely full, complete with deep side pockets. While I chose to wear an underskirt for some extra volume for these pictures, it does quite well without one. Overall, this may be one of my favorite Trashy Diva purchases of all time! Which kind of says a lot, because I have quite a collection...
I can't remember if I mentioned this before, but this past February marked my fifth year with my blog. I consider that quite a milestone! There have been times of frustration, disappointment, and thoughts of giving it all up, but the good outweighs the bad ten fold. I love the documented journey this blog has allowed me to reflect upon and, most importantly, the friendships that have come from it. I also just hit 20,000 followers on Instagram last week, which prompted me to host a VERY BIG giveaway as a thank you to everyone for supporting me. You're definitely going to want to get in on this and I'm super excited to announce everything on Friday. Keep those eyes peeled!!!
