Debating...

Thanks for all the shopping ideas ladies! It has kept me busy most of the afternoon.

As you all know I prefer vintage over repro. But after my last two major purchases not fitting me (!!!) I was thinking about buying something repro. I already have a pair of trousers from Heyday and my jumper from NudeeDudee, but I am always drooling over Trashy Diva. But I am a bit nervous I guess. So I thought I would ask you guys.



This lovely dress would be $72 with shipping. I think its gorgeous! Doesn't it look vintage?? $72 is a bit expensive for me to spend on a new item (weird, I know) but it definately does look worth the money. So what do you ladies think? Should I get it or should I just wait and buy vintage? Do any of you have any Trashy Diva dresses? What is your opinion of them? If I buy it I can't return it so if you can help me with the sizing as well that would be great!

Can't wait to hear what everyone says!!

  1. I haven't bought anything from Trashy Diva and I don't know of anyone who has! :( Its REALLY beautiful, looks vintage and the colors are stunning. I'm with you on the price, $72 is a bit expensive! I could buy a LOT Of clothes for $72! But, if you're head over heels in love, go for it! Sleep on it tonight and see how you feel in the morning!

  2. I have one dress from trashy diva and love it. But I bought mine when it was on sale for $34! They do have good sales but you're not guaranteed when the sale will be or if your size will be available.
    My opinion is...go for it!

  6. I'd go for it! It's gorgeous. I only wish it could only cost 72$ to get it sent to Australia. ;]

  7. Its such a bummer when you buy things that don't fit right as in my experience, I never wear them. I know you can never tell with vintage until you get it, but still dissapointing!
    My advice would be to sell some older/ill fitting pieces you own on Ebay and with the money you make - buy this lovely dress :D

  8. I have three Trashy Diva dresses, and just ordered two more (I wait for their sales, then I pounce). I really really like all of them; the quality seems quite high and all their styles are really flattering. (The three I have are a halter, sleeveless, and little puffed sleeves, so all are fairly different.) I think their sizing is true to normal modern sizes--I wear a 12 at places like the Gap and Target, and I think Trashy Diva's 12 might be ever so slightly closer-fitting, but not to the point that I need to switch sizes. I'd never be able to afford them at full price, but on sale I think they're worth buying. (In other words, doooo iiiiiiiit!!!)

  9. Thanks so much guys!!! I knew I'd get some great responses from you. I'm still debating it. Sometimes I can be horribly stingy with my money. lol! I look at my pile of clothes to be mended and think that with the $72 I can get them all fixed at the tailors. That would give me practically a whole new wardrobe!! So I guess right now I shall wait and see. The dress is adorable and I know I'd wear it. I'm just not sure if its a 'must have' right now, with all the great pieces I have waiting to be fixed. I will keep you all updated though!
