Has there ever been a Trashy Diva Dress at Minx that we haven’t just adored?! I think not. And this vintage inspired kimono spinner is our new favorite.
Those sleeves! That waistline! The twirling circle skirt!
Move over, all other LBD’s… there’s a new girl in town.
1940’s Kimono Dress Details:
The vintage inspired dress details a low-cut front and back neckline with gathering at the shoulders, upper bust, and upper back. The underbust is sewn in sections to give it a sleek and flattering fit. The triple band waist sections are lined for an extra flattering touch. The skirt is below the knee and combines bias cut and straight cut panels for a flattering A-line shape.
Fabric: Rayon Crepe De Chine
Lining: Waist lined in Rayon
This look is available for purchase at our downtown Asheville dress shop.
Trashy Diva never fails to impress us with their modern take on vintage style. Their Trixie Dress in black is just what we’d expect from a line with classic 40’s inspiration. From their well-chosen fabric to their unique pattern-making – Trashy Diva knows how to flatter a woman’s body. And who couldn’t use a really special little black dress like that?

We can always depend on French Connection for well-fitting, figure-flattering dresses in prints that are consistently on-trend but stand the test of time. With this dress they’ve got the formula down for a piece that you can shamelessly wear to work on a Friday and then be excited to rock to a party later that night. Hooray for French Connection… what would we do without you?!
