I am a clothes hoarder.
More specifically, I hoard dresses. And shoes. For years.
It may be a problem, but I choose to look at it positively.
"Of course you do," Husband just said. How dare he?? HA!
Because of this "habit", when I shop for dresses, I look for ones with a classic style, that are well-made, and will last through the changing tides of fashion trends.
Trashy Diva dresses fit those requirements perfectly! Beautiful frocks that could be straight out of the 1940s/50s; but also have a graceful charm that appeals to those without a vintage esthetic.
|I am DYING over this new Trashy Diva design.|
The Hopscotch Dress.
Could it be more adorable??
I own five Trashy Diva dresses, purchased over the past few years. But if I could, my whole wardrobe would be filled with them! The fit of each dress is extremely flattering, and there has not been one, that I did not adore instantly.
The creative force behind Trashy Diva, is owner Candice Gwinn; and she knows exactly how to design a dress that is fetching, feminine, AND practical! (Yay for pockets!)
Each time I wear one of her designs, I receive enough compliments to make a gal blush! And who doesn't want to feel pretty when they get dressed up??
So... I HAD to bring a couple of my dresses to Italy. Right??? Right.
One dress, in fact, kept conjuring itself up in my imagination as being the ideal dress for certain cities. I could see myself strolling the streets of Rome in it, shopping for sandals in Positano, and wandering through museums in Florence.
|Hopscotch in Rome!|
|Handmade sandals in Positano|
|The Duomo in Florence|
One dress, four cities in Italy, and it looked fabulous each time!!! It is the definitive wardrobe staple.
|At the Colosseum; I felt like I was on the set of a 1950's film.|
|Ancient fountain at the Forum. I love how the colors|
of the dress pop!
|Gelato Festival in Florence. Yum!|
|Face-timing my Sister at the Duomo.|
|Positano at night. Such a GORGEOUS print!!!|
And the full skirt conceals those necessary pockets!
|Cocktails at Chez Black in Positano.|
My favorite spot for drinks, food, and the MOST
wonderful service! I loved everyone there!
|Last night of my trip. Rome.|
So I cheated; it is really only three cities. Ha!
But Rome twice should count as two!
|What else would I wear when trying|
caviar for the first time?! Hehe!
|The Fountain of Trevi at night is a beautiful sight!|
The Walk in the Park dress... simply lovely.
