Hourglass-fit-blogElizabeth is sweet on the separates!  She rocked the new Alexa Tie Top with the High-Waisted  Shorts  for a vintage look that is sure to knock ‘em dead! She styled her look with the classic It Girls in Dark Brown, which flew out of the stores but we do have a similar Chestnut color in stock that is gorgeous!  She is also wearing a beautiful howlite bracelet from Jan Michaels.

 

What size do you normally wear in Trashy Diva? 

I’m normally a 0 or a 2, depending on the material and cut.

What size did you wear in this collection?

A 2 in both the top and shorts.

Natural tans and chocolate browns are the perfect accessories to switch from Winter to Spring without feeling out of season.  Those warm toasty color play off of the rich colors in Dogwood to complete your transitionary look! A Wide Brim Sunhat, Enamel Dogwood Earrings, and Coffee Cardigan are on the top of our styling wish list!

Lauren went for a classic look with the Alexa Dress! She paired the dogwood print with a rich coffee brown to highlight the gorgeous brown twigs in the print.  The Cut Out Kids from All Black are a charming shoe for a brunch date, with its low heel and intricate cut-outs, you’ll want to wear them every day!

 

What size do you normally wear in Trashy Diva?

2 or XS in most dresses, except firm-waistband non-stretch styles – with those, I take a 4. Separates I take a 2/XS in tops and 4 (stretch fabric) or 6 in skirts.

What size did you wear in this collection?

2/XS in the Lena Sarong, L’Amour, Trixie Romper, Alexa Tie Top, and Lena Blouse. 4 in the Alexa and Day Dresses. 6 in the 40’s Skirt and High-Waist Shorts.

How tall are you?

5’7″

What do you love about what you wore? 

I am in love with the turquoise background. I don’t think anyone can say they won’t look great in this color! I also love the petal sleeves of the Alexa Dress. They allow for more range of motion, in my opinion, than the sleeves on the very similar Ashley Dress. Lastly, I love the A-line silhouette, it’s a timeless shape!

Kia killed it in the Romper!  This fun and flirty style is perfect for a day out in the city!  No need to worry about wind gusts because the perfectly flared shorts give the appearance of skirt but are just so easy to wear!  She put a little Spring in her styling with coral and citron!  She slipped on the adorable Gina Sandal by Re-Mix, Zenzii Coral Square Cuff and a Sheer Hair Scarf  to tie her look together!

 

What size do you normally wear in Trashy Diva?

XS – S in most of the styles with elastic siding (Trixie tops and dresses/rompers), and anywhere from a 4-6 in dresses depending on the material and the cut. I take a 6 in the skirts for comfort, since they’re so fitted at the natural waist.

What size did you wear in this collection?

I took an XS in the Romper. It’s a little tight in the bust (I’m a 34DD), but the S was too big in both the bust and waist. I took a 4 in the Lena Sarong and a 4 in the Alexa Tie Top. I sized up to a 6 in the High-Waist Shorts for easy of movement.

How tall are you?

5’6″

What do you love about what you wore? 

It took me a long time to embrace the romper on a conceptual level, but I’m so glad I did. I ride my bike to/from work a lot, so it’s great to have a style that’s cool/light enough to ride in while not running the risk of flashing my underthings to passers by. I love all the Trixie styles (tops, dresses, rompers) because the structured bust makes them easy to wear without a bra – even for bustier ladies!

Ivory and pearlescent accessories are the perfect complement to the Dogwood collection- bring on the compliments! The parasols in both white and cream are delicate and practical to keep those rays at bay! Pop on pearly sunglasses and this stretch floral bracelet (both available at our stores and online soon!) to tie the look together!

Brittney was a dream in the Lena Sarong! Wedding guest ready she paired the gorgeous Joan Heel from Re-Mix with a delicate Zenzii Flower Collar (available in-stores now, but will be online soon!)

A 6.

What size did you wear in this collection?

I took a 4 in the sarong – hello, stretch panels!

How tall are you?

What do you love about what you wore? 

The sarong really works for my shape. I am very long waisted so having the adjustable straps really allows for the waist and length to fall where I’d like them to be. I really love this sexy silhouette in such a sweet print.

Joanie and Mary Claire are darling in our “Mommy and Me” styling of the new Dogwood Collection!  She matches Momma Joanie, in the Day Dress which features black rhinestone buttons on the bust and the return of the straight cut skirt.

The design of the Day Dress is perfect to wear for a variety events.  As a mother of three children four and under, I often do not have time to change for specific events throughout the day.  The Day Dress is easy to wear on a day-to-day basis from work to the grocery store to a school meeting to a dinner date!

Marie Claire is wearing the redesigned Posey Dress with a classic black mary jane and black bow! This cutie was ready for a fun day of stickers and ice cream in her new dress! The 5/6 was Marie Claire’s perfect fit, so much so that she wore it right out of the store! A true diva!
