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.

I really want to do more videos, so I did a quick one last night when I got home of all the wicked stuff I bought at Rowena! They have an outlet in their basement and every now and then, they do 50% off the last price! You can find amazing brands like Heart Breaker, HellBunny, Pinup Girl, Voodoo Vixen, Iron Fist, TUK, and the list goes on. The sale is on again today and tomorrow, so if you’re around, I suggest stopping by. And if not, check out RetroGlam.com to see what awesome stuff is on sale online.

Well, here’s my mini haul. Please excuse the blurriness- not the best camera.

Danger De Lux Review: Voodoo Vixen by Pinup Girl Clothing

The first of many reviews to come, the Voodoo Vixen dress from Pinup Girl Clothing. I have to admit I was a bit weary of this dress when I first saw it- I wasn’t sold on the fabric and however once I saw it on, that all changed.

When I put it on, my mind was blown. This dress fits like a dream and it insanely flattering. I’ve seen it on about 5 or 6 different body types and it looks good on everyone!

_DSC0177I’ve begun my search for my grad dress and at first thought I would for sure get the Folly Flair ( also from Pinup Girl Clothing) but it didn’t fit quite right. Thank goodness for the Voodoo Vixen dress, because I think this shall be the one!

_DSC0179I have on a medium and it fits just right! I figured its about time I share my measurements with you, so you can use it as comparison.

Bust: 37″ Waist: 29″ Hips 40″

The fabric is a black cotton sateen, which just a touch of stretch, but I wouldn’t really count on it, when deciding what size to order. I almost always wear a medium in Pinup Girl, and like I mentioned this fit like a glove.

This dress hits me in all the right places, but like I said its not just me! A girlfriend of mine, whom also fit into the medium, has a bit bigger hips and bust, but it fit her great as well. It really is a dress for ever one and every size!

_DSC0182When I purchase this beauty, you can bet I’ll be getting in from Rowena,  my favorite dress shop! Their website, Retroglam.com, also has this baby listed, but I must advise to get it quick, because I don’t see it lasting in the shop or online for long!

The detail on the Voodoo Vixen is fantastic- its simple, but stunning. The neckline sits perfectly and the waterfall along the hip is placed just right. I believe this dress most definitely will be my grad dress- what do you think?
