Butterflies and Begonias

Trashy Diva Butterflies and Begonias Carmen Midi Dress Penny Dress

I can't remember the last time I posted a mommy and me blog and I've missed them so much!  Now that we're in the days of Instagram (aka instant gratification) I usually post these kind of pictures over there.  But Bianca, now six, indulged me in some Mother's Day pictures in our matching Trashy Diva sets.  Trashy Diva released their newest print, Butterflies and Begonias, last week and I have to admit: I am obsessed.  I haven't loved a print this much in quite some time and they've included a little girls dress version so I went nuts!  You can read all about the Butterflies and Begonias collection below!

Butterflies and Begonias is a beautiful floral print that features royal blue, grey, mint, and teal colors with yellow butterflies on a very warm red (close to orange) background.  This collection is printed on a flat rayon, which means it has no stretch.  I chose the 1930's inspired Carmen midi dress, which is a newer style that features half sleeves with open slits on the side and elastic cuffs, a crossover bust, banded waistband, and a midi length gathered skirt with hidden side pockets.  The back of the dress plunges down pretty low so I was unable to wear my normal bra, but I think I could have hidden it if I tried.  In Trashy Diva dresses I'm always between a 2 and a 4 and because of the non-stretch flat rayon, I went with a 4.  The 4 is the perfect fit!  It's nice and fitted but not tight enough to make me feel uncomfortable.  I also purchased the Hollywood dress in this print, but I'll save that review for another day.

Bianca is wearing the Penny dress, which she initially had in the fan-favorite Steel Magnolias print when she was a baby.  I'm super happy to see this style return because I love the ruffles and the tie-back waist.  She's six and usually wears a 6 or 7 in girl's clothing.  She's wearing the 7/8 in this dress and while it fits, it's definitely quite short on her.  I'm wondering if I should get the 9/10 for length?  Either way, she loves it and I'm so happy she still lets me twin with her!

Butterflies and Begonias is available in several styles (including separates!) in sizes 0-24.  Make sure to shop while you can, this print is very popular and you'll be supporting a woman-owned small business too!
