Katherine by Karina Dresses

There's a great new Fall dress from Karina Dresses!  This style is the Katherine and the print is Black And White Crossdots.  This is another fabulous dress from Karina!  By now you know what a fan I am, but they keep getting coming out with more styles and prints.  This is my first Katherine and I really like it.  It features a high round neck line and 3/4 sleeves, so it will be perfect for cooler Fall weather. The polka dots are timeless and so much fun to wear and accessorize with!  The dress has a tie belt and the full skirt falls at the knee.  It's perfect for many body shapes and is super flattering as all Karina Dresses are!  I adore the wrinkle free material that is perfect for traveling.  This style can be worn with boots or heels for a date or even to the office.  The Katherine is available in several great Fall prints too!

Karina Dresses are crafted in the Hudson Valley, NY.  They are available online or in store. They are also stocked at some indipendent retailers. Treat yourself to one or a few, you will be so happy!

Ellen Gingham Sun Dress

There's something so classic about gingham. It's always in style and anyone can pull it off and look great!  Navy blue and white are also classic together which makes this Joanie Clothing dress simply perfect. The Ellen Gingham Sun Dress is the dress you have been waiting for!  You'll love the fit and the comfort you get from it too. It's comfortable enough to have fun in and you can dress it up as well. The wooden buttons and the material across the chest are just the right amount of added detail to make this dress stand out. It also has pockets! I know how much everyone loves dresses with pockets, so I'm always happy to be able to feature them. This dress is modest enough for work and would look great with a white sweater added.  I do think that you need size up when ordering this if you are larger in the bust.  It tends to run a little snug there. The length is great, it hits just below the knee.  Joanie Clothing caters to all sizes and has this available in 8-22. You can count on your purchase being a very well made item. I am always pleased with Joanie clothes!  

On my recent shoot we had the pleasure of going to the most adorable glapmer owned and designed by Jessie Patton of Southern Sophistication Designs. It was a great chance to wear gingham and bring out the country side of the print! It was a great mix of country glamour.  

I accessorized with a vintage necklace that I got from For Guys and Gals and it worked great with this dress.  They are a local business that buys, sells and trades all sorts of vintage memorabilia and hot rod items. Check them out!

Jackie Dress in Black and Gray

This brand new Jackie Dress from Karina Dresses is so amazing! I am loving the black and gray houndstooth print they came out with for the Fall. This dress is definitely going to be a staple in my wardrobe! It's so classic and you can dress it up or even go more casual. This is my first Jackie style from Karina Dresses and it fits like a dream. I absolutely love the cut of the square neckline. It has a fitted waistband and full skirt. The length is below the knee, which I love. Karina Dresses are all so timeless, you can never have enough of them!  As always you will enjoy the wrinkle free material with this one too.  I will be wearing this Jackie Dress all the time. I plan to accessorize with different cardigans and tights when the weather gets cooler. 

Karina Dresses are always very high quality. You can count on your purchase to be great! Not only will you look gorgeous, your dress will be comfortable. They are all made in the Hudson Valley, NY.  Karina Dresses are good for all body shapes and they encourage women to embrace their beauty and self love. It truly is a wonderful company and I'm confident you will fall in love with the clothing!

Vida Cutwork Sun Dress - Joanie Clothing

I love a great sun dress and  this one from Joanie Clothing is just about perfect! The Vida Pattern Cutwork Sun Dress is so versatile. You can really enjoy the comfort and the beauty while wearing it. For this look I dressed a little more casual, but I still felt fixed up with this beautiful piece.  I really like the straight cut on the bust of this one, so I can feel very modest running errands or whatever I need to do. I have worn this concerts and dinner dates. The cutout detail is so feminine and delicate and I love the large white button details. Did I mention it has pockets?  They are huge too! The wide straps are nice as well and they cover your bra straps which is a plus. You can get this style in navy or mustard yellow, which is equally as gorgeous! It's available is size 8-22. This is a definite need for your Summer wardrobe! 

Joanie Clothing is consistent in putting out high quality, quirky, fun clothing for every season. Their vintage inspired items range from very casual to formal.  It's always so nice to find a label that celebrates all body types too! I can promise you feel pretty when you wear Joanie Clothing!

Cookies and Milk Tag Team- Sarsparilly

This Tag Team Skirt by Sarsparilly is one of the sweetest skirts I have seen!  Not only is the cookies and milk print the most, but it also an extremely comfortable skirt to wear. The fullness is insane!  I didn't even need to wear a petticoat to achieve the fullness shown, but certainly you could.  It has hidden pockets on the sides as well.  I love the shades of color in the cookies and milk duo print and the pretty blue background just makes this really pop!  I get instant joy wearing it and a slight craving for cookies! It's the perfect skirt for a baker or anyone who likes to wear fun prints.  

The material does not stretch, so measure accordingly and go by the sizing chart. 

There are so many fun dresses and skirts that she makes, I'm sure you will find something you have to have!  

I am so impressed with Sarsparilly's vintage reproduction clothing.  The quality of this skirt is outstanding! Each item is handcrafted in Australia with love. You can really tell how much work and pride go into designer Maria's work. She began drawing designs at the young age of 11 and never gave the dream up. Sarsparilly was created in 2009 and relaunched in 2016 and aren't we glad!  

You'll be twirling and kicking your heels up in this as well!

Trashy Diva Atlanta is here!

There's a new shop in town and you have got to check it out. Trashy Diva Atlanta is here! If you are looking for high quality vintage reproduction clothing, look no further. We are so fortunate to have this shop here now. The Poncey-Highland location is perfect too! You will find all of the newest Trashy Diva collections there and even a lingerie boutique. Make it a girls day out and have a great time when you go!  

I am featuring the Blanche Dress from the Victory Floral Collection this month.  This dress is absolutely stunning!  It is a true wrap style dress that has a self-tie belt. The fit is very flattering and the material has a slight stretch to it. It is suggested to size down when ordering online. The knit fabric is also oh so comfy and soft! I love how the v- neck has large ruffles that go all the way around. The skirt has ruffles as well and they are tiered for a really beautiful cascade effect. The feminine dress is a great option for a date or even a nice lunch outing. I wore it to a wedding and felt like it was the perfect choice for the night. The colors are stunning too! The navy blue background is a nice contrast for the lavender, yellow and green floral design. You can also find this pattern on several other dress options from Trashy Diva. The accessory options are pretty open when wearing this dress too!  I opted to pair mustard yellow shoes and bag with it and I wore a burgundy head wrap. No matter which style you choose at Trashy Diva, I'm confident that you love it and look gorgeous! 

In 1996 Trashy Diva started by selling vintage clothing. They added a few designs and gradually grew into the awesome company that we know today. There are stores in New Orleans and Atlanta with plans of more in the future! You can also find their clothing at many stockists around the world and online.
