Dogwood

Trashy Diva L'Amour Dress in Dogwood Print

Words cannot express how happy I am about the new Trashy Diva Dogwood print!  While dogwood blooms aren't something you'll find here in Southern California, I'd like to think this dress provides us with some sophisticated southern charm.  I chose to blog the L'Amour dress today, but I actually purchased two dress styles in this collection (the other being the Alexa).  I've had to talk myself out of wearing these dresses every single morning, I seriously can't get enough!

Bracelet- c/o Touchstone Crystal by Swarovski

The L'Amour is what I'd consider the perfect sundress.  It features an adjustable keyhole bust, lined bodice, adjustable button straps, and a full skirt.  The entire collection is made in a flat rayon, which is lightweight with minimal stretch.  Thankfully, the sides of the bodice have elastic ruching to ensure a tailor-made fit.  I'm usually a size 2 or 4, and I comfortably fit into a 2 in this dress.  If you're unsure about sizing, the size chart is accurate.  I find this style to be a bit long-waisted, but thanks to the adjustable straps, you can make the bodice shorter if need be.  I've been a faithful fan of the L'Amour dress but I'm pretty sure this is my new favorite!

There's going to be lots of rain this entire week so Bianca and I are keeping our adventures to a minimum.  As much as I'd like to do Disney in the rain (aka it will most likely be dead), the long drive tends to be even longer in bad weather.  Do you have any fun indoor activity ideas for a mom and toddler?  I feel like we're going to get a bit stir crazy by the end of the week!

  3. This style is so perfect on you, and all the lush colors in this post make me want spring SO BADLY. How am I going to take photos of this dress in the snow... I need to find a good botanical garden, methinks.

  4. So pretty and the shoes are perfect! I keep hearing how this dress is running long in the torso. The last l'amour I got (cranes) was long in the torso too. Good to know for us shorted waisted gals <3

    1. Yeah, most L'Amours are very long in the torso. I'm actually quite long waisted, so I wanted to mention it. The adjustable straps do help to make it work though!

    1. Thank you! I'd keep an eye out on the Trashy Diva swap and sell, or even check through Retro Glam. They have lots of stockists who carry it. If your heart is set on the L'Amour, don't give up! But the separates are great too <3
