|Dress – Trashy Diva ‘Sweetie’ Dress
Shoes – Novo
Glasses – Wildfox
So that’s three rayon dresses in a row that I’ve blogged this month! Even cotton feels too heavy at the moment – this past week we’ve had days where it’s reached 39 degrees. I can tell you that there is absolutely nothing less glamorous than pincurls going limp from sweat and having to peel my dress off my skin when its absolutely drenched.
There is a reason I don’t leave home without a parasol, it is less of a fashion statement and more of a necessity! Luckily I do own a number of rayon dresses now, all of them by Trashy Diva, and this morning I managed to track down another rayon dress in the Sweetie style on Ebay…despite having placed myself on a ban from buying dresses this year…
Rayon is the quintessential 1940s fabric, it was hugely popular during the war and post war period as its production was not affected by wartime shortages the way fabrics such as wool and silk were. The ‘Sweetie’ dress is a reproduction of the iconic 40s shirtwaist dress and probably my all time favorite Trashy Diva style! I love the way the cut accentuates an hour glass figure, the contrasting buttons and belt buckle.
