Voodoo Vixen brings us another beauty- the Ava dress. I enjoy the fabric of this dress, which reminds me of the late 60’s, but with a more 50’s cut. This dress is a lovely holiday dress if you are looking for something a bit more modest. Available in sizes: small, medium, large, and extra large. The Ava runs a touch small, as Meagan sized up to a large. For $95 the Voodoo Vixen Ava is a great little frock for the holidays.

The Viviene also from Voodoo Vixen is sassy dress for those fun holiday parties, where you know you can let loose. Not only is this dress leopard print, but it is velour and very stretchy ( a.k.a comfortable). The Viviene comes in sizes: small, medium, large, and extra large.

The Viviene is available in store or for phone order

_DSC3473e_DSC3474eHell Bunny has made an absolutely divine wiggle dress that screams Mad Men! I left like Joan in the Bernadette and once I saw these photos I was sold on it. This dress has a ton of elements that make it holiday worthy- the color, the lovely waterfall on the hip, the sexy fit, and the sweet keyhole neckline. The dress is available in sizes: extra small, small, medium, large, and extra large. I wore a medium in the Bernadette. This dress is only $66 and at the price you could get one in every color ( also available in plum, black, and red)

Hell Bunny also present us with the Benita, a very simple, elegant black dress. Its three quarter length sleeves, high neckline, and below the knee hemline makes this dress highly versatile! While I was very covered in this frock, I still felt very sexy. The Benita is available in sizes: extra small, small, medium, large, and extra large. This dress runs a bit big, as I fit into a small perfectly.

Steady Clothing: Pretty in Polka Dots – The Heather Dress

It was love at first sight- the Heather dress by Steady Clothing caught my eye on the rack and I just loved the way it looked and fit when on. The Heather is a lovely bouncy swing dress- the base fabric has stretch in it, which has an overlay of polka dot chiffon. It is perfect without a crinoline, but ever so perfect with one. The fabric hangs beautifully on its own, but to give it the look of a 50’s prom dress, a crinoline is required.

I wore my Heather to work paired with vintage hair and a killer cat eye. I have been thinking lately how so many people dress down and how sad I think it is that people feel they need an occasion to get all dolled up. I love getting dressed up nice to go to work…or to go out to dinner or the park or wherever. A dress is as fancy as you make it and every day life is as fancy as you make it. I loved the Heather so much I couldn’t wait to wear it and I did just that- wear it the very next day after I bought it.

_DSC2316-EditSteady Clothing is made in the U.S.A which means it is good quality so worth the price. You can get this beauty at Rowena in Edmonton or online at RetroGlam.com

I sized up in this dress to a large. I could have squeezed into a medium but I felt the large looked and felt good. My measurements are 36-29-40. The Heather has adjustable straps as well to help ensure a perfect fit at the shoulders and bust. The ruching along the bust/torso is very feminine, made complete with a white bow.

_DSC2314-EditI imagine this dress being worn to parties, weddings, even a prom. This sweet swing dress is not one to pass by. While I have many dresses that cannot be worn just anywhere, this beauty will definitely get many wears to many different places.
