So recently, I introduced my oldest step-sister to PUG's clothing for her Christmas present, and she's completely in love! She ordered the Je T'Adore dress in Olive, and when she put it on her husband's jaw dropped to the floor.
She told me that she never felt more attractive in her 49 years of living, than she did right at that moment...and that got me thinking about all the compliments and comments I've received from family, friends and strangers since I started wearing PUG clothing...and how it's impacted my life - which of course leads to the topic of discussion- what's the best compliment, comment or story you have pertaining to your PUG wardrobe?

Went to a work dinner in my cherry Heidi. Coworker sees me, says "Hi, Ellie!" looks down, "DAT WAISTLINE GIRL!"
I cracked up!
I was at a bar in Biloxi, MS and this older gentleman pulled me aside and complimented on how beautiful I looked that night.
Made my night!
I was at a camping supply store wearing my green and lavender malibu tiki dress and the cashier goes to me:
Cashier: Poison Ivy?
Cashier: You're a cosplayer yeah:
Me: Yeah cosplay myself
Cashier: Oh well you look cool anyway
Ok, I just had one last weekend. I finally debuted my Doris skirt in Wonderland at a record fair. I was digging through a bin when the vendor got up and came over to me and said "You are the best dressed woman here. I love your skirt, did you make it yourself?" I was totally flattered and pleased with my purchase, it wasn't until after my boyfriend pointed out, "you know he couldn't see your outfit, the bins were blocking you, the only way he saw was to peek under the table" HAH!!!
That's an awesome story Sara! I love getting to go vintage hunting in PUG too, there are always so many priceless reactions :).
I got my Queen of Hearts skirt in the mail yesterday and just had to wear it out, so I threw it on before running some errands. While at the grocery store, a little old lady came up to me and told me that my skirt was absolutely stunning an that she had never seen anything like it before. I really love when I get compliments from different generations in my outfits--PUG is just classic!
I was wearing my Voodoo Vixen top in dark green and Deadly Dames capris in black for a night out at a bar and I had a guy say, "I like that '50s look and that thing you did with your hair!" It was so adorable! (My hair was a simple barrel roll and curls)
Another compliment I loved was when I was wearing my Jenny skirt in the spiderweb print and my black Doris top. A girl rolled down her window and yelled, "I LOVE YOUR OUTFIT!!"
I usually alter everything I buy, but not when if comes to PUG. It feels good to have clothes that fits me as if they were made for me - I've never felt so confident and comfortable!
I don't know if I commented on this thread before but I have an addition to make,
I used to work in VS in central London. I wore my 'Jessica' dress to work most days, usually with a full set of What Katie Did lingerie underneath.
I overheard my customer talking to the cashier the one day
''so who helped you today?''
''Oh.... the girl who looks like Dita Von Tease''
