Hello! I hope that everyone's having a great Holiday season so far. I was wondering if you al could give me a hand with a little project of mine.

A little while ago I came across picture online with no caption or description, let alone a name of who designed this outfit and where you can get it. All I know for sure about the picture is that the model is probally standing underneath the wing of an airplane in a hanger AND the purse she's holding is a Hermes Constance bag that costs about as much as a good used car. The outfit itself is one of the best examples of "Retro/Vintage Chic" that I've ever seen, and that's I 

So even if I could find where the dress came from I doubt that I'd be able to afford it. That's where YOU guys come in.

What I'd like to know is what items from PUG's closet could I use to recreate this reasonably well?

For the top I thought that maybe the Laura top in black, the Vamp top in black or maybe the Vintage Bustier top in black.

The skirt is a bit more of a challenge. I know that PUG used to make the Perfect Pencil Skirt (at least I think it was the PPS) in white with black pin dots and I do have one but it needs to be taken in by quite a bit. You can see it in a picture of the Laura top in black. If anyone can think of another skirt of PUG's that would work or even look cuter please by all means let me know.

For the shoes I was thinking that the Lolita Pump in Black Faux Suede could be a good match. I could't really find a match for the purse but that's okay since the purse in the picture isn't one that I'm really a fan of anyway. I think PUG's Bow handbag in Matte Black Vinyl with Shiny Black Vinyl Trim would make a great substitute.

So if anyone reading this has any other suggestions on what PUG's equivalent of this dress could be please let me know. Otherwise have a great rest of the day and a fantastic rest of the Holiday season!

Take care and hugs,

Tahitia :)

I can't help with the skirt, but my vote is the vamp top to put with the rest of the outfit :)

Yes I think I'm definitely leaning towards the Vamp too.

Now if I could find a light spring coat or business style jacket/1940's blazer like the one that the models wearing as well that would be great too :)

As soon as I get the pencil skirt taken in I'll let you all know how this one worked out :)

Vamp, white pindot pencil, and that really nice blazer (metropolitan?) they have, I think it would look nicer (outfit) with a cute wicker bag 

You could always look at Vivian of Halloway for the skirt,  I don't think they have anything in cream or ivory right now but they do sway out colors fairly often. 

That could absolutely work :)

I really love this classic feminine jet setter look. It also has a crisp, clean, business appeal to it. Because PUG does not currently have any white pencil skirts I would flip the colors. Black pencil skirt and white top. 

I like:

Black pencil skirt


White top

Fitted black blazer ( not PUG )

Good luck Tahitia, hope this helps you and gives additional inspiration to other pinups.



Thank you so much for the ideas Margaux! Hopefully I'll have something close to resembling this outfit to share with you all before too long. Take care and hugs :)
