The Original Bad Girl Review By Patsy

The Original Bad Girl Review For The Bad Girl In All Of Us!

A new clothing company I had been closely following on Instagram, launched their website on 17th November 2014, and I had to get my hands on some of their items before they sold out!

TOBG is based in Sydney, Australia and the local fashion designers have created the Bad Girl essential range taking inspiration from the 40's/ 50's/60's fashion, art, film and music. Think Bardot, Brosmer, Dors, Monroe and Mansfield!

They have created original designs, not reproductions, in a handful of colours and sizes to ensure Bad Girl exclusivity for your wardrobe.

As soon as the website was live I purchased the JD Top ( shown below ) and The Mystery Girl T Shirt.


With free worldwide shipping at the time of purchase, my items arrived in no time and the packaging shows the attention to detail and pride the company have in every order. There was even complementary vintage earrings included, another reason to fall in love with TOBG!

The JD Top is perfect with Freddies, or anything high waisted, I took the advice from the website and ordered a size down for a true Bad Girl / Sweater Girl fit. The neckline sets this apart from any ordinary 'stripey top' and refrences 40's and 50's style tops perfectly.

My measurements are 34 - 25 - 36 , and I would recommend anyone over a D cup to go for the size Small in the high neck tops to achieve the best sweater girl look.

I can't wait to see what new designs TOBG come out with this year, make sure you follow them on Instagram and Facebook for behind the scenes sneak peeks, and head over to their website and grab yourself some of the few items left from the first collection, you won't regret it!

Patsy was one of our very first customers to order from our online webstore!, thank you so much your support and for the review, we just love to see you in TOBG!

Our 'Starlet Scandal' Jumpsuit by Johanna Ost

Lurex Jumpsuit 

Some photos of my amazing lurex jumpsuit from The Original Bad Girl.
It’s totally vintage Frederick’s of Hollywood catalogue worthy, so I made a tulle overdress for it inspired by some Frederick’s illustrations. I felt like I should be going to a cocktail party at the Addams family house.
We simply love Johanna's style, glamourous, elegant, unique and quirky are just a few words to describe this beautiful lady, she is just simply being herself which is a rare beauty in this modern world. 
We were first drawn to her amazing illustrations, comics and handmade brooches and fell in love with her on the way, find the links to her website and etsy store below for examples of her work. 
This Jumpsuit was heavily inspired by 1950s Golden Glamour girls, it is almost completely seamless made from a sparkly Silver/ Black Lurex, it hugs every inch of your curves in all of the right places, this jumpsuit is now sold out.
