Trashy Diva Lingerie: Vintage Inspiration

  |   By Elisabeth Dale

The best part of my trip to New Orleans for Mardi Gras wasn't the music, parties, and crazy costumes, but stumbling upon the wonderful Trashy Diva Lingerie store.

I'd heard about Trashy Diva, and knew their reputation for quality vintage and retro-inspired clothing. The Lingerie Addict suggested I pay Trashy Diva a visit when I was in New Orleans. But I didn't look up the address and forgot to include it in my busy itinerary. It was only by luck, when wandering around the French Quarter today, that I spotted the sign for Trashy Diva Lingerie. And I had to see what was inside.

The shop is stocked with some of my very favorite lingerie brands; from Mimi Holliday, Freya, What Katie Did, and Rago Shapewear, to Dotties Delights, Lou, and Playful Promises. They have an extensive selection of exquisite bras, corsets, slips, gowns, and fabulous accessories. They even carry swimwear.

I loved the displays and the helpful staff. It was easy and fun to find everything I needed. I was on a lingerie mission, since the temperature dropped in New Orleans and I wasn't prepared. The saleswomen helped me find the perfect stocking solution. Plus I snagged a great pair of purple satin opera-length gloves to finish off my outfit.

Trashy Diva has multiple store locations where you can find lingerie, clothing, shoes, and accessories. But you don't have to travel to New Orleans (or wait for Mardi Gras) to check them out. You can visit their on-line store to get your vintage inspiration fix.
