When I had the opportunity to go and see Dita Von Teese launch her new vintage inspired fashion label, I knew I wanted to wear something pretty but not too over the top. Of course an occasion like that feels as though it calls for the christening of a new outfit as well, so it was the perfect opportunity to take my new ‘Honey’ dress out for a spin.
The ‘Honey’ dress by Trashy Diva, is available through my wonderful sponsor who carries all manner of beautiful vintage reproduction dresses, Miskonduckt Klothing. I have a real fondness for their pieces, not only for their retro sensibilities but also for their quality fabrics and construction. This dress is a gorgeous scarlet polished cottoning a heavy weight, with some stretch and a side zip. It allows for a very figure hugging fit without the danger of splitting a seam in a moment of haste. The skirt is super full and perfect for a spin round the dance floor, but my favourite hidden feature? Pockets! There is something so wonderful about these 1950’s style dresses with pockets on both sides of the full skirts; it just makes you want to start posing around like a movie star on her day off. And thanks to my lovely friend Helen McLean Photography, that’s exactly what I did.
