A little message here to let you all know how thankful little Luna and I are for all of you who visit my blog and keep up with me on social media throughout the year. I read all your comments and good wishes and enjoy them very much and I appreciate the friendships I have made with many of you. For those that celebrate Thanksgiving, I wish you a safe and love filled day with family and friends.
It’s the first time I am featuring the brand Trashy Diva on my blog. I have seen their lovely 1940s style dresses many times on social media and thought their designs were gorgeous. I was excited when the opportunity came to review the Victory Floral Blanche dress.
I had long admired the Victory Floral design with its true 1940s style and pattern of navy blue with brilliant florals in stunning golden yellows, lavender, and burgundy red and green colors. I chose the Blanche style, which is a wrap dress, and if you have been reading my blog you know how much I love wrap style dresses. This dress also has great attention to detail in its design with a vintage-style ruffle neckline and tiered A-line shape. The fabric too is exceptional quality being a knit cotton. The dress is incredibly light and comfortable. Also, the colors in the pattern provide so many styling options.
For this blog post I matched my shoes and accessories to the deep red color in the pattern. For my first look I styled the outfit with my red Robbie shoes by Bait Footwear and a red vintage style necklace by Splendette. For my second look I added my red Heart of Haute sweet sweater (a wardrobe staple) and a vintage 40s red wicker purse. I can’t wait to wear this dress with yellow and green cardigans and accessories as the styling options are endless.
The wrap style of this dress is perfect for a curvy figure and you decide how much cleavage you want to show…. I kept this look a little more conservative with only a hint peeking through but still; the style shows a feminine shape beautifully. I will be wearing the Trashy Diva Blanche dress year round; in the winter add a coat and some high boots and you are dressed perfectly!! I am looking forward to featuring Trashy Diva many more times on my blog!!

You will love this one!! I am so excited to make my vintage inspired Christmas t-shirt available to you all from Crazy4Me Style. My tee has custom one-of-a-kind artwork of a kitschy cute Rockabilly scene with a lovely Pinup Girl dressed in beautiful vintage style outfit decorating her Christmas tree and her fluffy puppy dog is helping too!!
When it comes to styling our tee the possibilities are endless. You can dress this tee up or down, pair it with a swing skirt or novelty print, even vintage denim would look fabulous. For a more 1950s sweater girl look you can add a bullet bra and tuck the t-shirt into a wiggle skirt and look incredible!! Our t-shirts are ribbed and super soft cotton with stretch so your curves will thank you and you Dolls will keep comfy while looking stylish all season long.

In this post I am sharing pictures wearing my Laura Byrnes California Long Jun Skirt in Green House Harlequin print or Slytherin style from the Harry Potter house. I wore a bright green top and I think it matches perfectly. The skirt is crafted of the highest quality cotton sateen and features a curved high-waisted fit, box pleating in the skirt, and an elasticized waistband at the back. Finished off with a back zip. The skirt is nice and full and I added a petticoat for additional fluff. The color is incredible, a rich emerald green and is really spectacular in person.
House Harlequin Colors
- Gryffindor (red and gold)
- Slytherin (green and silver)
- Hufflepuff (yellow and black)
- Ravenclaw (blueand bronze)
Next up will be a post featuring the Ravenclaw House Harlequin Jenny dress and Doris top…. And more! All pics by my sweet hubby Gary
It was a lot of fun collaborating with Lindy Bop for this post. This is also the first time I am featuring Lindy Bop on my blog. Lindy Bop are a vintage style brand that have the most unique and creative prints. If you love novelty prints and boarder prints then Lindy Bop is the brand for you!!
I am wearing a wonderful wrap dress in these photos called ‘Dawn’ Navy Cherry Polka Dot Swing Dress . As a women with ample curves , wrap dresses are my go-to style. This pretty print is a dark navy blue covered with ripe red cherries. I couldn’t resist this one. I love the way it hugs my curves, emphasizes my waist and flatters my shape. The dress is made from a medium very stretchy jersey fabric making it perfect for Autum and chilly weather and doesn’t wrinkle much at all. Oh, and did I mention the price….. under $50!!
I styled two looks for this Lindy Bop Dawn dress. The first is with my cherry red sweet sweater, navy blue Mary Jane heels and red necklace. I love how easy it is to style. You can also easily add a green cardigan and green petticoat and have yet another look. Or, keep it simple with just a red belt and necklace and it is perfect for work too. The dress makes getting ready very easy and it can go from work to dinner to shopping so easily. I am looking forward to styling this dress with a pair of tights, high boots, and a lovely coat since it is so incredibly versatile and comfortable!!
Ladies, if you are a novelty print lover like I am and want to dress your curves
in figure-flattering clothing then do yourself a favor and visit Lindy Bop for clothing that is very reasonably priced, has lots of variety in styles and prints and is available in sizes 8 – 26. I will be sharing another Lindy Bop post soon so stay tuned.
