I don’t usually do Black Friday shopping. I’m not a fan of huge crowds or getting trampled in a walmart over electronics. However, I love the Black Friday sales online! I only made purchases from two retailers, Pinup Girl Clothing … Continue reading
I recently made a purchase from Pinup Girl clothing, there was a sale and it had been awhile since I bought anything new so I went for it. I decided on the new Jayne dress, it is one of the new styles they released for spring. I have been lusting after it since it was released a few months ago so I was pretty excited to see it included in the sale.
This style was released in four colors: yellow, pink, black and blue
I like the yellow and the blue the best, I tend to be drawn to blue and I have been really into yellow lately.
The yellow one was the only one on sale so that is the one I purchased 🙂
It is perfect, I definitely felt like I was channeling Jayne Mansfield while wearing the Jayne dress.
There is boning in the bodice to help define the shape of the dress. It is lined with a satin that feels amazing, be it a bit warm in the 90 degree weather. I think it is the perfect wiggle dress, I’m thinking about purchasing it in the other colors as well.
According to the size chart I would have fit into the medium, I am usually either a medium or a large in PUG dresses depending on the neckline. For this dress, the medium is said to fit the following measurements: bust-34-38 inches; waist 28-29; hips 38-39.5. I have a 42 inch bust and a 27 inch waist, so I went with the large (which fits 36-40 inch bust) so that I had some room in the top. I liked that it wasn’t too terribly tight, it is a very sexy dress and I wanted to stay classy 🙂
In the same order I picked up some new sunglasses
don’t they look fabulous with the new dress 😉
I think that this is the ideal casual/daytime wiggle dress, which is something that every pinup needs in their wardrobe. It looks great dressed down with flats or dressed up with heels.
I also got a new pencil skirt, the Dixiefried Perfect pencil skirt in Orange. I don’t have a picture of it on yet but I will post one soon.
I always look forward to my orders from PUG and have yet to be let down 🙂
This afternoon my Christmas order from Pinup Girl Clothing (PUG) arrived. It was like Christmas morning all over again. Shipping was quick, I placed my order on Thursday and it came today (Saturday). I have been a fan of PUG for almost 6 years, but only recently made a purchase. I’m up to six dresses and two skirts (one hasn’t arrived yet, it was purchased off of eBay), and now I am completely addicted! Everything from this order is size medium and pictures were taken without shapewear.
The first dress I HAD to try on was the Deadly Dames Polka Dot Wiggle dress. This was the dress that first endeared me to PUG, I have wanted it since the first time I stumbled upon the PUG website. And now it is finally MINE!!!!!
Here it is front, side and back view. I didn’t change my bra to try on the clothes, but a strapless bra is definitely in order in the future. I love it so much, it was worth the wait. It makes me feel like Wanda from Crybaby, that’s why I was drawn to it in the first place. I can’t wait until the weather warms up so I can wear it out.
Next came the Jessica dress in Baton Rouge Bengaline, this is a newer design it just came out this fall. I had tried the Rust colored one and loved the fit, but this color was my favorite.
This color is amazing! It is so unique, I love purple, and I love how it looks with my hair. After seeing the pictures from the back, I will be wearing shapewear in the future 🙂 I wan’t able to get the zipper all the way up by myself, this why a husband comes in handy, I can never zip myself up. The fabric is great, stretchy and not scratchy. It feels high quality. I know I’ll get a lot of use out of this too.
Here comes the world famous Vamp dress!
I decided on the Tiger print and it is fabulous! The bust was a bit tight, I wasn’t able to wear a bra with it. According to my measurements, I fit into an XL in the bust but my wasit is between a small and a medium. I decided on the medium becuase I figured that I wouldn’t mind the extra cleavage. As you can see, there is some super cleavage going on. That is my only (minor) complaint with the fit, the zipper wouldn’t stay all the way up because I didn’t hook the little clasp at the top. That wont be a problem when I actually wear it out. I was a little worried about the length, in the pictures on the website it only went down to right above Michelline’s knees. I didn’t want to wear it that short, so its a good thing I’m short 🙂 I think it would have been too much being short and having that much cleavage. But with the bottom of the skirt hitting right under my knee, it is perfect. I feel so ferocious grrrrr. There is definitely more Vamp in my future, i have to start collecting the tops now too.
After all these sexy wiggle dresses I decided I needed something a little more casual, I decided on the Luscious dress in mint with “Mira Mermaid”
I am surprised at how much I like this one. It may be my new go-to dress for spring and summer. I have been a bit obsessed with Mint lately, I have been snatching up anything I can find in that color. The Luscious is just that, it is made out of a really thick t-shirt like material that feels so soft. The little mermaid embroidered on the shoulders is so darn cute and adds just enough detail to set it apart. Putting this on is just as easy as pulling on a t-shirt and running out the door, and looks a hell of a lot more put together too.
And last but certainly not least, I ordered the Iron Fist Zombie Stompers! I have been wanting these amazing shoes for years and every time I decided to get them they were always sold out! Now the stars have aligned and I was finally able to get them, and on sale too.
They are so comfortable, the soles are padded, and they’re so cute! I was pleasantly surprised to find an extra pair of tips for the heels, mine always wear down pretty fast. They have so many colors on them, they go with practically everything 😉
I’m so happy with all of the things I purchased and can’t wait until my next opportunity to collect more of their fabulous clothes.
