Get set for summer in our brand new Wildflowers collection! Drawing inspiration from the swinging sixties this vivid floral, with its bright splashes of primary colors, calls to mind the Pop Art creations of Andy Warhol. Crafted from easy, breezy cotton voile, Wildflowers is a comfy, lightweight collection that can be styled casually or dressed up for more formal summer events. 

Subtly sweet, Jillian’s look is equal parts fun and formal. In our fan-favorite Streetcar Dress, Jillian achieves a more modest look in the bust, with a removable neck tie for a little bit of added flair. Paired with the Carved Daisy Earrings from Classic Hardware and a pair of funky Jeffrey Campbell Rachael Mules, Jillian’s outfit is perfect for backyard barbecues and warm-weather weddings!

How would you describe your body type (Hourglass, Apple, Pear, Inverted Triangle, or Straight?)

An apple-ish hourglass.

What do you love about what you wore?

I loved the length of the streetcar on my height it can easily be dressed up or down for many occasions. The fabric is so light, breathable and perfect for summer.   

In the Gathered Mini Skirt and Trixie Top in Green Voile, Ashley’s look is so bright and fun that it’s impossible not to smile! The Gathered Mini offers so many styling possibilities, allowing you to mix and match colors and cuts for a dressed up or dressed down look. Ashley stepped up her style with a pair of Jojo Heels from Chelsea Crew and some colorful carved bracelets for a little retro flair. Add a pop of Besame lipstick and you’re ready to go!

Bust 38″, waist 32″.

There’s something about the Hopscotch Dress that’s so effortlessly elegant you’ll be looking for any excuse to wear it! Yvette is an absolute vision in this style, proving that this party dress is a versatile addition to any wardrobe. With a full coverage bust and cap sleeves, the Hopscotch is a modest alternative to our lower cut styles. A cut out in the back gives it a unique, playful touch (bonus: the cut out is high enough that yes, you can wear this style with a bra!) Yvette’s style pulls out pops of red and white with the Re-Mix Balboa 2 Heels and a chunky Swirl Bangle. For a work appropriate look, try pairing the Hopscotch with a colorful cardigan so you can transition easily from office belle to party gal!

An 18-20, or an XL.

A 20 in the Hopscotch, XL in the Trixie Dress.

How would you describe your body type (Hourglass, Apple, Pear, Inverted Triangle, or Straight?)

Hourglassy pear!

What do you love about what you wore?

I love the print! It’s so bright and fun. The fit on this was also really nice and cotton voile is so lightweight and perfect in the summer. And I’m a sucker for anything that has the little rhinestone buttons!

What are your measurements?

48-38-54.

Mom Elizabeth and daughter Mallory were just too perfect in their matching Wildflowers dresses! Elizabeth wears the Ruby Mini Dress, an easy to wear summer staple that will fast become your favorite frock. With its slender straps, sweetheart neckline, and fitted waist, the Ruby is sundress perfection. Styled with our new favorite bag, the Half Moon Bamboo Clutch, and the Laura Wedges from Toni Pons, Elizabeth’s look is cute, casual, and a whole lot of fun.

 

What size do you normally wear in Trashy Diva? 

I’m usually a 6 or an 8.

What size did you wear in this collection?

I wore an 8, but there’s still wiggle room (I like to be comfy!)

How tall are you?

I’m almost 5’7″.

How would you describe your body type (Hourglass, Apple, Pear, Inverted Triangle, or Straight?)

Hourglass, I think?

What do you love about what you wore?

I loved how fitted the waist was and the length. The whole caboodle is a flirty little number you could wear during the day or a summer night out. The colors really pop on this one, plus the fabric for Wildflowers is super light and airy.

What are your measurements?

I’m not entirely sure! I’m a 34DD, if that helps. I think my waist is 27″.

 

Mallory could not get enough of the Rockabilly Baby Emma Dress! Sized according to age, with an easy-to-fit cut that’s perfect for your little one (no buttons, no zips, no fiddly fastenings – just slip it over the head and adjust the tie straps), this dress offers plenty of room to grow. In the wise words of Mallory, “It’s awesome, I’m gonna keep it!”

If you’re feeling fancy, give our Goldie Dress a go! Aubry is the absolute embodiment of the sixties in this sweet ensemble, which features a high, ruched neckline, fitted waist, and strappy back for a little extra sass. Aubry kept it simple with accessories, pairing this unique piece with a pair of solid red heels (similar) and sheer hair scarf tied without bow. The Goldie is so eye-catching that this simple outfit makes a statement all on its own!

 

What size do you normally wear in Trashy Diva? 

I’m usually an XS, or a 2-4. 

What size did you wear in this collection?

I took the 4 in the Goldie. I was able to zip the 2 alone as well, but the waistband looked a little tight across my lower back.

How tall are you?

I’m 5’4″.

How would you describe your body type (Hourglass, Apple, Pear, Inverted Triangle, or Straight?)

I’m pretty hourglass shaped. There’s more than a 10″ measurement difference between my bust, waist, and hips.

What do you love about what you wore?

I love that the collection is voile because the fabric is light, breathable, and easy to care for. I especially love the Goldie because the backless style is fantastic for New Orleans’ hot summers.  The front is generously blousey enough that I don’t feel exposed without a bra on.

What are your measurements?

I’m 36.5″/26″ right now. 

There’s no question: you simply can’t go wrong with a Trixie Dress! Ashley proves that this look is a quintessential Trashy Diva classic, with its longer length skirt (for divas who like to play it modest), vintage-inspired draped front, and structured under bodice to provide support with or without a bra. Ashley dressed up the Trixie with one of our brand new Hudson Boleros and Miss L Fire Betty Heels. Accenting the floral theme with a super cute daisy brooch (similar), we love how Ashley took this classic sundress and made it a little more refined and formal – without sacrificing the fun!

 

What size do you normally wear in Trashy Diva? 

Approximately a 20-22 (24 in skirts and bottoms), or an XXL.

What size did you wear in this collection?

In the Trixie, I took an XXL, and in the Streetcar, I took a size 22.

How tall are you?

I’m 5’7″.

How would you describe your body type (Hourglass, Apple, Pear, Inverted Triangle, or Straight?)

Belly-friendly Pear. My bust is usually a 1-2 sizes smaller than my bottom.

What do you love about what you wore?

The cotton voile is so lightweight and the print is so playful! The Trixie is a great option for those taller divas, too, because of both the adjustable straps and the longer skirt length.

 What are your measurements (bust and waist)?

Approximately 45-46″ in the bust, and 39-40″ in the waist.
