TRASHY DIVA!

I am not much of a shopper abroad; you won't see me come home with half a new wardrobe from my travels. I always stock up on things I need before the trip and then get all modest when away and only feel I can by something if it is really extra spectacular. Or, then I just buy something that's alright because I feel I have to. You see, it is just the internet that brings out the shopping devil in me.

However, New Orleans being one of the main stops at our journey I was very much planning and looking forward to (I was actually ridiculously excited the closer that day came...) do some shopping at one of my absolute favourite stores, you know: Trashy Diva!

First I visited the French Quarter store and they were kind enough to let me take photos there.


So many dresses I didn't quite know where to start!


Although I have quite many dresses from before I now got a chance to try out more of the models and patterns. (Good for future shopping references, hehe. And for the questions I get about styles and fit...) I actually ended up buying some totally different pieces than planned! Although I in the end was rather calm and modest and bought only two (once again, it is only -well, almost- the evil world wide web that makes me splurge).

Pretty!
If you happen to be in town it is also worth visiting the uptown store, they have some pieces from older collections too and the area is nice to stroll around in, although I didn't take any photos in there.


Eddi bought me this one; it was so good on!


Trashy Diva also has a brand new developed website and store where you can shop by print or style. And you will want to visit that site now, as, on to the best part now - I've been looking forward to this Oh Yeah:

Trashy Diva is offering the readers of this blog 20% off a purchase until July 28!

To get the discount use the code: FFB20PER

...happy shopping!

Trashy Diva is just amazing, I LOVE it. Well, shop isn't cheap for me, so I can't afford to buy anything. Maby later, I'll try to lay away some money! Thank you for showing me that heaven ;)

Frollein von Sofa : the pattern is great! Especially the sweetie dres - you'd look great in it :)

Ramonies : well, it's now or never, 20% off can still get you pretty far :)

Q's Daydream said...

I'm so jealous!!! I'm crazy about the blue bird halter dress! You didn't happen to try it on, did you?... I wonder how it would fit...

Betty Lou said...

iiihh ska beställa en sweetie dress i samma mönster som din. ska bara försöka få rätt stl. liite jobbigt att dom skickar med UPS. hur lång tid tar det för leverans ungefär?

Q's daydream : I have a trixie dress from before so I didn't try this on. Perhaps they've developed the style, but at least the trixie I have is quite easy to wear; I could've taken a size smaller. It's not my favorite model though, but it loks nice around the bust. The print is gret and looks so fresh on; I tried the sweeties dress in the same print.

Betty Lou : Jag har strl 8 i de flesta TD klännningar, passar bra även om jag gått upp i vikt en smula; min midja är drygt 73cm tror jag. Sweetie satt just bra i den storleken på mig. VIssa klänningar känns rätt så trånga krign revbenen men sweetie modellen är ju lite puffigare så det var inga problem. Har tagit lite på en vecka, men tidigare skickade de med post. Brukar ofta komma direkt hem utan tull...

In the top pic, I have the dress on the right. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Trashy. The colours, the prints... *swoons*

Caitlin Anne said...

I wanted to last dress so bad when i first saw it on the site and that picture makes it even better.I might just have to take this offer.

Dial V for Vintage said...

Oh my, I would LOVE to go shopping there! I've been drooling over the dresses in their online store since forever but I don't have the money and I don't really know how they fit... Someday, I will own one (or two, or three...) of their dresses, I hope :).

Betty Lou said...

tack då kanske jag vågar beställa nu direkt till pajala, hinner nog komma innan jag åker ner igen. 4 el 6 för mig, kan inte bestämma mig. vore jobbigt om den blir för liten. speciellt nu när jag är hemma och bara äter bullar hela dagarna haha

the freelancer's fashionblog said...

Caitlin Anne : it looks even better on! If you have a very large bust or ribcage consider taking one size bigger; you can squeeze it in with the belt in the waist. But for me with large ribs it gets a bit flat o the bust. Not that it really matters.

Dial V for Vintage : The fit is good, alas, TD is one of my favs :) THe size chart on the site is accurate. It was me who suggested the discount to TD and not them, because I know so many say they can't afford their dresses - I thought all of you'd have a better chance to buy now. I don't get any provision of the sales, but I still suggest you take the chance now :)

Betty Lou : hmmm, jag tror det är en sån modell att lite för stor inte stör, man kan ju snärja åt bältet. Storlekstabellen på deras sida har fungerat rätt så bra för mig; den är att lita på!

DAMMIT I just bought my first TD dress online last week – so I missed out on the discount. Oh well, I am sure some other lucky bloggers will get to enjoy it :)

Kate said...

Thank you for the discount! I treated self to Sweetie Dress in Turquise Bird Print.

Uhhhh... that store looks amazing!

Heidi said...

Hubby and I are going to Nola for our 5 year anniversary (we eloped there) so I will be sure to check this store out! I don't remember seeing it, is it new?

Lucia said...

I would order a dress, or a blouse or a coat, but I don't know about the sizes, I ususally wear a 40, but but, TD seems to be really small?! I am tall 172 and curvy with boobs and ass, but not fat, not big, well not ssmall either, but not like BIG, a bit voluptuous maybe, so maybe I would need the biggest size.
I am dying to get the courtney blouse in leopard print..and a dress..

the freelancer's fashionblog said...

Heidi: no, i think it has been around for many years already.

Lucia : I'm a 36/38, sometimes but not too often 40. I have size 8 in most TD dresses, and some in size 6, depending on the model. The size chart is rather accurate and very helpful, so look at that!

The day dresses, americana and anette are form my experience a bit tight in the rib/bust area but then the sandy, alison, 40's and other similar dresses have lots of room for the bust. The hip is free in most dresses.

I have my regular size in the courtney jacket/dress and it is alright, although bit tight around the ribs if I wear a sweater underneath.

Tack för din info angående storlekarna! Jag måste väl testa, man kan ju skicka tillbaka om de är fel storlek.
Tur att man har ett måttband med inch måttet :D
