Tatyana has me seeing spots.

Back in the summer I purchased a few dresses off of the Tatyana website. This was when they were switching from Bettie Page to Tatyana and had just listed a ton of super cute dresses in their clearance section. I had my eye on this little yellow number for a while but was scared to take the plunge – I usually stick to safer colours that I am familiar and comfortable with. Gosh, I can’t even recall the last time I had worn yellow! But at the price, I could not pass up this yellow wiggle dress

.taty1I was flipping through my closet trying to decide what to wear to work, when I thought, golly, I have only worn this dress once since I purchased it! I slipped it on and thought once more, why don’t I wear this dress more often?! It is super slinky, which usually makes me weary that it is going to show all my bits, but instead it hugs me just right. This yellow number is very stretchy ( it doesn’t even require a slit) and accentuates my hour glass figure.

taty2While I wore this dress to work, I think it would be equally fantastic for a night out. If there is one thing I love, its a low cut neckline and this dress does not disappoint. A pair of black heels, back-seam stockings, and vintage bangles complete my look; for an evening out, a black vinyl clutch would do the trick!

Tatyana still has a big clearance section on their website, which I believe is the brand clearing out the old Bettie Page items. Nonetheless, you can get a fantastic deal on a dress or two. I think I may have paid $20 for this dress and it was worth every dime. I purchased another one at the same time, but still have to get it tailored ( if you don’t see your size.consider buying one up to get it taken it- the price is right). I got this wiggle dress in a medium and it is the perfect fit. I find Tatyana usually fits true to size. I measure at 37-30-41.

Below are the pretty bangle I paired with my dress- both gifts; one a glass olive bangle, and the other a yellow butterscotch carved Bakelite bangle.

Laura Byrnes Delia- Your new little black dress

The moment I saw the Delia dress from Laura Byrnes black label, I knew this dress would be divine on and it absolutely did not disappoint.

In my experience lace sleeves can be hard to wear, especially if you have any meat or muscle on your arms. I relieved a sign of joy, when I noticed the lace sleeves on the Delia dress were stretchy! This was even more important when I had to size down from a medium to a small- usually in this case the sleeves simply would not fit and I was slightly resistant that despite the stretch it still would not fit…but to my excitement, the small fit and it fit beautifully.

The Delia is simply stunning. It has all the elements to make it your new favorite little black dress. The rouching on the sides make this bengaline wiggle dress highly flattering, hiding or camouflaging any trouble spots. The Delia also has the coveted sweet heart neckline, which gives this saucy number a touch of sweetness. This dress also has the slightest hint of a princess sleeve, further adding to its elegance.

The fun continues onto the backside, with a keyhole on the upper back and a beautiful kick pleat which is something Pinup Girl is coming known for – no need for a simple slit when you can really punch up a wiggle with gorgeous pleats. The kick pleat is a beautiful selling point when I shown gals these dresses – we have, for some silly reason, come to expect a simple, boring slit, but why should we accept the bland, when we can have so much more thanks to Pinup Girl Clothing.

The Delia comes in two other colour ways aside from black; it also comes in a cherry red with black lace, and a deep purple with black lace. All three equally as elegant.

As mentioned, I sized down in the Delia to a small. My measurements are: 37-30-41 ( they have changed a touch in the last few months). A small fit me perfect, so be sure to check the size chart before ordering. I have seen a few other gals try the Delia on and they had to size down as well.

At $145 the Delia is worth every nickle! This is sure to be my new go to, party dress.

Retroglam.com has all three colours to order online and Rowena has them in store. Don’t let this number slip by, as it truly is a timeless piece. I felt beautiful, stunning even, in it and that is a sure sign that one should own such a dress!

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.

_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.

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.

Feeling Vampy in Steady Clothing

I love a good peplum and finding one that I can pull off is easier said than done. The first peplum I bought was a skirt from Steady Clothing. The second and most recent peplum I bought, is also from Steady Clothing. I think its safe to say, Steady knows what they are doing.

The Emma dress from Steady Clothing is divine. I feel absolutely fabulous in it- like a total vamp, if you will. It fits me great and is a completely different cut from anything in my closet.

_DSC2331-Edit

The Emma hits me just above the knee, and features a 3/4 peplum, stopping at the hip on each side. The sweet heart neckline and playful cut-out only amp up the sass of this dress. The Emma has a fair bit of stretch, so it hugs nicely to the body.

_DSC2335-EditI purchased this dress in a medium and it fits great. I measure in at 36-29-40 and the Emma hugs me in all the right ways.

I am crossing my fingers Steady makes this dress in a ton more colours, because this is a new favorite- I feel so good in it. It is currently available in black and coral ( coral is sadly not my colour) and I highly recommend getting this before it’s gone. I believe this dress has a lot of versatility to it- I wore it to work with kitten heels and nude fishnets; it can be wore on a date, to a wedding, to a party, to a bridal shower….well, the options really are endless. And at $94 this dress is a steal if you ask me!

_DSC2332-Edit

In these photos I paired the Emma with T.U.K creeper wedges and a RAGO cincher to get an amplified hourglass shape.

Head down to Rowena and check out the Emma and all the other amazing dresses from Steady Clothing.
