Outfits of the Month: Random Vintage, Trashy Diva, Deadly Dames

I’ve meant to share these for a while, but everything seems to get in the way.

Trashy Diva 40s Dress in Olivine Floral

Trashy Diva 40s Dress in Olivine Floral.

First, Trashy Diva’s 40s Dress in Olivine Floral, Doll Dress in Slap ‘n’ Tickle, and Honey Dress in Fuchsia stretch satin. I’ve had the 40s dress for nearly a year, but the others are new.

Love the fit of the Doll Dress, though the Honey is a wee bit big in the armscyes and waist. My current measurements are 44-32.5-48″, and I’m wearing size 16 in both (and size 18 in the 40s dress; the Olivine Floral version ran small).

Next, vintage 1950s! I recently purchased a deep aqua and lavender floral cotton dress (label: Carol Brent) from La Rosa Vintage on Haight in San Francisco. I paired it here with a “Luxelon” acrylic lilac cardigan from Relic Vintage (label: Designer Originals), also on Haight.

On the same day, I bought a lovely blue lurex and black taffeta cocktail dress (label: Rite-Fit Dresses) from La Rosa Vintage. I’m showing it here worn with a belt by Igigi. Not sure about the sizing on these pieces, but the waists measured 32.”

Last, my new Deadly Dames Troublemaker Dress in white and black. Big in the waist, but otherwise a fine fit. I’m also including two recent shots of my Deadly Dames Pirate Dress. Yes, I took them in the ladies’ restroom at Trader Vic’s. I was having a lovely day (that got even lovelier that evening at Forbidden Island in Alameda), and I felt wonderful.
