Off the Rack ~ How to Buy Trashy Diva on a Budget

Last week, I briefly mentioned buying Trashy Diva dresses on a budget. This week, I’m doing a whole post on how to find and buy second-hand and less costly items from this very boob-friendly brand.

First up, the original retail prices. Most TD dresses in rayon or cotton hover around $165, with separates coming in around slightly above half that. Stretch rayon items cost a little more (presumably the fabric is more expensive at wholesale), running about $185 for a dress and again slightly more than half that for separates. Naturally, prices vary depending on how much fabric a garment requires.

Trashy Diva shoppers who want the security of buying from a reputable retailer with the option for returns can stick to Trashy Diva and other conventional online retailers. On the TD site, start out with the sale section, which gets updated every couple months. Keep in mind that discounts of 50% or more are final sale.

TD also has the occasional coupon for 50% off all sale items, or a percent off a specific non-sale print. Sign up for their email newsletter and/or become a fan on Facebook to be notified whenever there is a coupon.

Full Bust Finds: Combining a Skirt & Top to Look Like a Dress

Here’s a challenge we’re all familiar with: what do you do when you love to wear dresses for work but can’t find one to fit your waist and large bust at the same time? A common suggestion is to wear a skirt and top in the same pattern, but that can be hard to find, so I was excited to find these fabric combinations at JCP the other day. Knit fabric and princess seams are a win for busty figures.

Bad News, Good News for Big Busts in the U.S.

Let’s get the bad news over with first.
Although DD Atelier has seen very good sales in the United States since opening its warehouse here, as a small online retailer, it makes better financial sense not to divide its inventory across two continents. Sadly, DD Atelier has decided to close its United States warehouse. Fortunately, returns will be still accepted in the United States–they know how important this is for their customers!
Now the good news: everything in their New Jersey warehouse is priced to go!  The clearance sale continues until April 1 when they will ship all unsold stock back to Russia. Sale items ship from New Jersey, so US customers can start wearing their new clothes right away. As usual, returns can be made to their New Jersey address unless an item has been marked Final Sale.
