I have a weakness for many things fashion: animal prints, cute shoes, and retro/rockabilly/pinup style dresses. There are some pretty big stores online that a lot of gals like me have a found, but if you’re also like me in the budget department, you find their prices leave purchasing anything from their site in the “splurge” category (meaning, it’s only happening once a blue moon).
I’m a girl who spends her entire life in a dress as soon as it’s warm enough outside. I’m also a musician and performer, and my style onstage has always been really “retro,” so I am always on the lookout for a great selection at affordable costs. When it comes to the pinup-style dresses, that’s pretty hard to find – unless you shop at my new favorite online store: Daddy-O’s. They sent me this dress to review:
This adorable pink dress has classic vintage style. It features functional loop pockets trimmed with black piping, a black and white polka dot print collar and a cute bow strap in the back. It has a fitted bodice, a pleated a-line skirt and a back zip. Made of 97% Cotton and 3% Spandex and machine washable.
At $59.95, it’s nearly 50% off compared to all of the other sites I’ve seen that carry this. (Almost all of their dresses are near half off every other store online!) And if you worry that lower costs mean lower quality: don’t. This dress is extremely well made and high-quality and it’s absolutely one of the most flattering cuts I’ve seen (which is saying a lot considering I have a post-operative body)! My friends have all tried to steal the dress from me as well.
They have a HUGE SELECTION of dresses from companies like Stop Staring, Bernie Dexter, Lucky 13 and more. They also offer a great selection of separates, mens, accessories, shoes and other pieces to complete your look. Not only that, but their team (I worked with Christy) is top-knotch: super friendly, really fast and efficient with the ordering process and email response, and generally just all-around cool people.
So if you’re looking to add to your retro-collection, Daddy-O’s is the place to go. I’ll be sending this blog to the company and asking if they’ll honor a new “DIVAT” coupon code to give my readers and extra-awesome reason to buy. Will keep you posted!
