Charmed

Made590 Saski Dress in Charmed

I know it's summertime but let's be real: I'm already preparing for the spooky season!  Made590 is one of my favorite brands based in Australia and their new Charmed range is everything a spooky witch could want.  Illustrated by Kirbee Lawler and available in a bunch of fun styles, this range truly has something for everyone!

Sunglasses- Unique Vintage

While I wanted to order a few things, I had to limit myself to one piece so I chose the Saski dress.  The Saski is a new style for me (I almost always order a Valentina skirt when it's available) so I was a little nervous about fit.  Thankfully Chris, the woman behind the brand, is always happy to answer my questions.  She assured me that the XS would be the size for me and she was right!  

The Saski is made from linen fabric and has the most gorgeous print of vintage charms.  There are several buttons down the bodice so there is no gaping on the bust whatsoever.  This dress features short sleeves, a pleated skirt, and deep hidden side pockets.  It was just a little short waisted for me but I added a belt to even out the proportions.  Overall, I really love this dress and I'm really looking forward to wearing this during spooky season!

You can find the Saski dress and the rest of the Charmed collection in sizes XS-5XL on the Made590 website.  Support a wonderful small business and look great while doing it!

Boni Roselee

Miss Candyfloss Boni-Roselee Jumpsuit

I love a good jumpsuit and this Boni-Roselee from Miss Candyfloss is my new favorite!  Unlike their other jumpsuits that I have in my closet, this one is made in a light, breathable linen which is perfect for the summer heat.  This wonderful fabric combined with their high quality design and amazing print has me completely head over heels in love!  You can read more about this jumpsuit below:

The Boni-Roselee features these gorgeous half sleeves that have a petal effect so you have full range of motion.  I love having arm coverage but I don't like sacrificing lifting up my arms in the name of fashion!  Like most of their jumpsuits, this one features a pleated bust, front zip closure, wide leg pants, and a matching removable grommet belt.  I'm usually an XS in Miss Candyfloss jumpsuits but I decided to size up to a S due to the non-stretch linen fabric content.  While the belt doesn't really fit the way I usually like, I'm happy to have extra room in the bust and waist (plus it's even easier to get in and out of it).

While this exact jumpsuit is now only available in a few sizes, you can find similar styles in different prints HERE.  As always, their clothing is made in sizes XS-5X and ships from Europe but their international shipping is SUPER fast!  I'm telling you, I usually get their packages faster than something coming from within the US.  Their customer service is top notch and I'm always happy with my orders.  Basically, I'm just very happy to support this woman-owned small business!

Ingenue

Vixen by Micheline Pitt Ingenue Dress in Black Vintage Floral Print

The warm weather is here and the Ingenue dress from Vixen by Micheline Pitt is the ultimate summer staple!  I've been looking for a dress that has that classic vintage look but doesn't feel stiff or uncomfortable and the Ingenue ticks off all those boxes.  This stretchy, wrinkle-free material is perfect for everyday life or frolicking in the woods like wannabe princess.

The Ingenue dress is made from a synthetic gaberdine spandex twill, which means it has lots of stretch and it doesn't wrinkle... at all!  I took this dress out of the package and it looked exactly like this.  No steaming or ironing necessary!  It features adjustable spaghetti straps, gathered bust, full (but not super full) skirt with massive pockets, a back zippered closure, and a black removable grommet belt.  I'm wearing a size small, which is my usual Vixen size.  I could have maybe taken an XS due to the stretch, but I really do prefer a more comfortable fit and I'm really happy with the small.

The Ingenue is available in a white floral color as well and this dress (among everything else Vixen offers) is made in sizes XS-4X.  This particular black floral dress is currently available for preorder and will be shipping in July.  Make sure to get yours while you can, the first run sold out lightning fast and sizes are already selling out on these preorders!

Power Print

Love Ur Look Power Print Shirt Dress

The hot weather is here to stay and there's nothing better than wearing an easy but fun cotton dress!  Love Ur Look, a sustainable and ethical small business, makes some of the most beautiful yet wearable dresses on the market.  Ronke (the woman behind the brand) designs most of her fabric as well.  I love the mix of this power print with their classic shirt dress style, it feels like a match made in heaven!

Brooch- Tangerine Menagerie
Lipstick- Maybelline Super Stay Ink Crayon in Lead the Way

The Power Print Shirt Dress is fully lined and made from a soft 100% cotton and features a statement collar, functioning buttons down the bodice, short sleeves with cuffs, a longer length a-line skirt with exposed front pockets, a matching fabric sash belt, and a side zipped closure.  This is a definite "throw on and go" dress.  You can pair it with any color accessories or wear it alone and you instantly look fabulous!  Since I've been stuck at home for the past few months, this dress has been such a great piece in my closet.  Dressing like myself has been a huge part of keeping me sane during difficult times and the Power Print has been in regular rotation.  I went with my usual size small in this dress and I found the fit to be great!  The fabric sash allows you to cinch your waist and gives that perfect vintage vibe.

This dress was just restocked and is available in sizes S-6XL.  You can also find this print in several styles if this silhouette isn't your jam.  And if it is, you can also find this shirt dress in several cute prints as well!  Make sure to check out all of Love Ur Look's offerings, they have a great product and you'd be supporting a wonderful small, woman owned, ethical, sustainable business (whew... those are lots of great things)!

Hollywood

Trashy Diva Butterflies and Begonias Hollywod Circle Dress

Happy Friday!  Even though this week was short because of the holiday, it felt so long.  The weather is hot, the days are long, and (for the most part) we're stuck inside.  My family and I make sure we get some outside time every weekend and I was pleasantly surprised to find one of my favorite parks has now reopened!  I made sure to wear one of my favorite Trashy Diva pieces, the Butterflies and Begonias Hollywood circle dress, to compliment the gorgeous outdoor surroundings.  My BFF Sammi from The Soubrette Brunette also styled the same dress for our posts today!  We may be on opposite coasts, but our style is always on the same wavelength :).

Trashy Diva has been making many versions of the Hollywood dress for years now but the Hollywood circle is my absolute favorite.  What sets it apart?  The longer length full circle skirt!  I'm 5'6" and can't wear minis so the length is perfect for me.  As someone with very wide hips, I appreciate the full skirt too.  Every Hollywood dress has the ruffle sleeves that can be worn on or off the shoulder.  As you can see, Sammi wore hers off the shoulder and I wore them up.  While I usually wear them off the shoulder, I wanted to showcase how different the dress looks when you keep them on.  It's like having two dresses in one!

The fabric of the Butterflies and Begonias collection is flat rayon, which means it has no stretch.  The bodice of this dress has shirred panels on the bodice which allows some stretch, but the waist will remain firm.  I went ahead and got my larger of my usual Trashy Diva sizes (4) and I found this dress to be the perfect fit.  I've heard from others that the dress seems to run small so I would recommend taking your larger size or sizing up for a comfortable fit.  You can find this dress in sizes 0-24 online right now!  If you're not a fan of the dress but love the print, there are many different pieces (including shorts and separates) to choose from.  Oh, and they offer AfterPay too so you can shop now and pay it off later!

Have you shopped with Trashy Diva lately?  What are your favorite pieces? Let me know in the comments below!
