Unlike much of today’s fashion, vintage wardrobe maintained a delightful balance between sex appeal and class. I fell in love with retro fashion many years ago upon realizing that the perfect dress resembles a magic potion. The right outfit can instill confidence in the lucky lady who wears it as well as mesmerize those who lay their eyes upon her. The appeal of retro style for me has always been the flirtatious, feminine nature. Fashion has gone through some treacherous phases, but mid-century chic still holds true as the era of celebrating classic curves and seductive silhouettes.
Our new “Tease” dress was designed to put the wiggle in your walk and ensure that you will be the belle of the ball. This sassy little number is a triple threat complete with a sweetheart neckline, bold contrast belt, and stretch twill pencil skirt. You can’t go wrong with the winning combination of vibrant colors, polka-dots, and spooky prints! Our “Vegas Vixen Flower” hair clip is a delightful accessory and looks smashing when paired with the “Movie Monsters” colorway.
While on the subject of being a tease, be sure to check out our awesome interview with burlesque bad girl, Little Miss Risk. We had a blast discussing her role in the horror hit “American Mary”, antique erotica, and why she should be on a hidden camera show.
In closing, just remember what someone wise once said, “If you’ve got it, flaunt it”!
Our new “Shameless” dress is here and she is a beauty! Inspired by the one and only Mae West, this dress will set the stage for an evening full of excitement!
Mae West knew how to cause a scene. She was loud, explicit, humorous, and erotic. Hailing from Brooklyn, Mae began performing at the age of five and never looked back. Inspired by belly dancing and Vaudeville, she spent her entire life perfecting her character, willing to travel anywhere at anytime when an opportunity arose.
Mae was not only an actress, but also an accomplished screenwriter and playwright. Her plays dealt with hot button issues; “The Drag” ended up being banned on Broadway for dealing with homosexuality. No stranger to criticism from censors, she was arrested along with the entire cast and crew of her production “Sex” after the theater was raided by city officials. In a time when women were fighting to have their inalienable rights recognized, she pushed the envelope every chance she got, paving the way for the many female entertainers who followed her lead.
The “Shameless” dress is my homage to the late, great Mae West. Designed to show off your best assets, this dress is fiercely unapologetic. In true West fashion you will dominate the room in this little number, leaving a trail of broken hearts behind you!
Pair the “Shameless” dress with the “Lafayette” necklace and draw a little extra attention to the super sexy neckline. We will have the “Antoinette” hat available in the next couple of weeks; message us if you would like to preorder and we’ll ship it for free as soon as it arrives!
