Trashy Diva: Atlanta Grand Opening

Wednesday, May 3, 2017

Since we first discovered Trashy Diva years and years ago, we've always loved the fact that Trashy Diva's designer, Candice Gwinn, is a Georgia girl herself! Since Amanda's never made her way to NoLa and I only get to go when I'm visiting my family, we are beyond excited that Trashy Diva now has boutiques (clothing and lingerie) in Atlanta!

We are SO excited to announce that we will be attending the Grand Opening event as Brand Ambassadors! We will be attending both the shopping and the awesome after party and would love to see all of your familiar faces there.....and try on ALL OF THE THINGS! If you need even more of an incentive to attend, you'll have the chance to win over $1,000 in merch giveaways!

The grand opening celebration is on Saturday, May 13th starting at 5 pm and we hope we see you there for private shopping, comedy, free drinks, and more! Location: 675 North Highland Avenue NE in the Poncey-Highland neighborhood!

Giveaway // Bonlook

Monday, March 20, 2017

We know that we've been on a longer blogging break than originally intended, but we are excited for what all 2017 still has in store! There are a few very exciting things happening this week, one being the launch of our collection with Erstwilder and the second being this AMAZING giveaway with Bonlook.

We are asked every day where we get our glasses from, and almost every single pair are from Bonlook. Since we have both worn glasses for as long as we can remember, we are SO happy that not only are glasses finally stylish, but they are also so much more affordable and obtainable. Most glasses from Bonlook are available for less than $100 including frames and lenses! But be careful, we can attest that they are an addictive thing to collect. Amanda's go-to frames are the Keiko's and I've been really into my Cult frames lately.  ;)

Bonlook has partnered with us to give 3 winners the chance to win a free pair of glasses of their choice! Act quick, because the giveaway is only until March 24.

Katie:  Lovebirds Ruby Mini Dress - Trashy Diva | Babymax Wedges c/o Restricted Shoes
Tootsie Cardigan in Ice c/o Doll Me Up | Bluebird of Happiness Brooch c/o Erstwilder

First, I wanted to update y'all on life as of late! Amanda is studying non-stop for the Bar exam so we opted to take February off from blogging, because there would be no humanly possible way for her to get everything done. If we were a tv show this would be our mid-season hiatus. ;) So while we are on this break, everyone be sure to wish Amanda good luck on the bar! Once things go back to normal, we will be back full-time blogging for y'all! We are also hoping to squeeze in a girl's trip, which would mean allll of the vacation inspired posts, yassss!

Now on to the review! Lovebirds is a super special Trashy Diva collection, because it is the first 'heritage print' to return! Last year, Trashy Diva announced that they would be re-releasing a special print every year, and Trashy Diva fans voted in a "March Madness" style brackets on what that print would be. Amanda and I will both admit that Lovebirds would not have been our heritage print of choice. We are both on team Liquor Print for life! However, the moment we found out that the collection would be on stretch rayon, we were so game, because stretch rayon is such a comfortable fabric!

This collection is absolutely stunning in person and I wonder why I ever doubted it's awesome-ness. The vintage-inspired print can really be worn during all seasons since the pastel colors are such a contrasting pop. It's really super versatile. I went with the Ruby Mini from this collection, because I'm a sucker for mini dresses!

Which Trashy Diva heritage print would you like to see return?

A Little Leopard, A Little Floral

Amanda: Hepburn Swing Dress in Leopard Print c/o Unique Vintage | Green Hat - vintage (similar
Lucille Ball Pin c/o SavannahAlexandraArt  |  Persia Heels c/o Miss L Fire

It's currently 2:30 am and I wish I had really interesting things to say about my personal life but,  I'm sleepy AF after studying for 12 hours and I'm thinking about Taco Bell and sleep. haha.  (y'all, I promise my complaining will stop in approximately 20 days or I'll have a crop of fresh complaints ;)).  As far as fashion is concerned, I'm really stoked to be rolling out another review of our favorite FAVORITE dress style, Hepburn Dress.  The dress is by The Pretty Dress Company but when we can, we pick these up from Unique Vintage since they're the exclusive US retailer (as y'all probably know).  I've been getting a lot of questions lately about fit when I wear TPDC items, so I want to clarify: I DO have to have these altered.  The UK8 (which is the smallest size) is a bit loose on me so I usually have them taken in however, I don't have to have them hemmed.  If you've tried the Priscilla Dress (same brand) these definitely run smaller than that and I'd say if your waist is 25-26 inches, a UK8 would fit just fine without needing alterations.

We were really excited to see the release of the Hepburn Wiggle Dress this month! Sometimes a wiggle dress is exactly what you need to boost your confidence, and this one does exactly that!  Since the material is thick and sturdy, it not only maintains its shape, but it also holds everything in.  Hallelujah! The only word of advice I have, is be prepared to have someone help you with the zipper.  I struggled like a crazy person getting this one zipped up, because of the longer sleeves.  Once it was on, it was so worth it!

Amanda: Alexa Dress in Doogwood Print c/o Trashy Diva  |  Bracelets - Splendette
  Vintage 1940's Dogwood Hat - Playback Vintage  |  Olive Green Wedges - Re-Mix Shoes

Katie: Dogwood High-Waist Shorts + Lena Blouse c/o Trashy Diva | Flower Brooch - Vintage
Black Tights - Similar | D'orsay Flats - Similar | Magenta Tootsie Cardigan c/o Doll Me Up

When we first saw the Dogwood Collection from Trashy Diva...we will admit that maybe we cried a little bit.  That may seem a bit excessive, but being raised in Georgia/Tennessee means that playing around literally IN the dogwood trees was a summer pastime for us as kids.  We, of course, fall head over heels for any print that invokes that level of nostalgia... and in this case, so much so that we actually bought additional pieces from this collection.  The bright colors, floral print and flat rayon fabric are going to make this the absolute most wonderful collection for Summer...but of course we couldn't wait until then.

I (Katie) originally planned to wear this outfit with white sandals and a big ol' Summer hat, but when I woke up this morning it was 30 my stubborn self opted to still wear shorts, but to 'winterize' them a bit.  I brought my large coat with me, but wanted to snag some pictures with and without the cardigan to fully show off how wonderful the Lena Blouse is. This collection was flat (not stretch) rayon so I opted for a 4 in it, at 35" bust I probably could've sized down to a 2, but I love being comfortable.  In the High-Waist Shorts, I followed the sizing that I took for the Chambray Shorts and sized up to a 6.  There is minimal stretch, so I definitely made the right choice

I (Amanda) took a size 2 in the Alexa Dress which is smaller than my normal size 4, but I think I might have lost some weight from bar exam stress.  The top runs a bit blouse-y so definitely take that into account when you're selecting your size if you're not well endowed (like me haha).  So that I didn't have bra showing issues due to the plunge neckline I'm wearing my Gossard Plunge Bra with the dress.  I think my favorite part about the dress is the little cross-cross petal sleeves.

A little life update!  We've decided to slow down on blogging until I take the bar exam on February 21st + 22nd.  Today, Katie is in L.A. for a business conference and I'm taking my first practice "practice bar exam" through the company I'm using to prep.  It's 6 hours long and I'm so nervous, as it's supposed to be a semi-accurate reflection of my progress thus far and telling of my future bar exam score for the non-essay portion.  I'd like to give a personal thank you to all the sweet readers and Instagram followers who've left me words of encouragement on my hard days - they were so appreciated and so needed. <3

I'd also like to thank black coffee for fueling my 8-12 hour a day study sessions that have already happened and the weeks of future ones. ;)  Also, I've started hoarding coffee cups (moreso than I already did) and find myself Amazon Prime'ing them every so often when I need a new one in the mix. Because, why not?! Wish me luck!

Lots of Leopard

Tuesday, January 24, 2017

Katie: Wild Leopard Troublemaker Dress - Vixen by Micheline Pitt | Heartbreaker Flats - Amazon
Gold Glitter Hoops c/o Bow and Crossbones | Lipstick:  Besame Red - Besame Cosmetics

Amanda: Bad Girl Top in Black  +  Vixen Skirt in Leopard Print  +  Bless Your Heart Pin
all by Vixen by Micheline PittMandalaye Ballet Flats - Amazon

Since the first time we tried pieces from Vixen by Micheline Pitt, we've been obsessed!  Like a lot of gals in the vintage reproduction scene, we never knew structured pieces could be so comfortable.  I personally am in love with the Troublemaker Dress for a few reasons.  First, the zipper is the best f*cking zipper ever.  There is absolutely no struggle in getting it zipped up and I'm not worried that it'll rip out of the dress.  That alone has me sold.  It also has plenty of stretch for my big 'ol hips, but I can also move freely with ease.  The fact that the dress has true long sleeves is just another factor that has me in love.  Finding long-sleeve, not 3/4 length sleeve is SO much harder than you might think.  I am in dire need of the black version so I can wear it to work events and feel cute + fully covered!

Another thing we love about these pieces is that they are SO. INSANELY COMFORTABLE and easy to wear.  Our favorite thing is spending as little time as we possibly can getting ready while still looking put-together and these are totally the perfect pieces for that. I love that the Bad Girl Top acts as an actual crop top, even for petite women.  This is actually the first crop top I've ever owned that actually fit like it should.  As for the  Vixen Skirt, I love the giant pockets (Katie and I have iPhone 7s Plus' and even those fit).  I have mine hemmed from the 27" stock size to 25" (for reference). I hope both pieces come in more colors this spring! Maybe red?! Hot pink? Light pink? I'd be SO STOKED!
