I've been a huge fan of Pinup Girl Clothing for a long time but I've only bought a couple of things from them over the years because I can never decide what to get. I bought the Heidi dress in cherry print while I was at Viva this year but I'd really like a few seperates to incorperate into my everyday wardrobe. Any recommendations?
Doris Skirt and top are extremely versatile, so are there pencil skirts. In fact if you can get your hands on them the Deadly Dames Perfect Pencil is just about the most wearable thing ever. You should also consider a Vamp top because although I do not yet have the pleasure of owning one I don't know a single person who doesn't rave about them :)
I often feel like I am the only person in the world who doesn't adore the Vamp (and Doris, sigh) top!! I like them, and own a few but I am a weird size and the S is huge, but the XS is tight on my ribs and makes my boobs look weird. I had to get a small and get it seriously tailored, raising the total cost of the top to $80!!
actually I have the same thing, the S is WAY to big on my waist and the XS squashes my boobs like there's no tomorrow, but I worked out that if I wear a minimizer bra with it then it isn't too bad, so it's a nice cut. Some colors are different then other colors. I have a tan one that fits WAY better than my white one :) (both XS)
I agree with Brandy, the DD perfect pencil skirts are indeed perfect. I just got the orange one, the gold color is on sale right now. In fact a lot of separates are on sale right now, so its a good time to swoop some up. I love my Vamp tops too.
oh, right you are :) Dixiefried are the awesome ones
Aw the Heidi in Cherry Print was my first dress from PUG many moons ago - I'm so happy they still make it, I should get a backup one in case this one falls apart.
I will have to echo everyone above about the Dixiefried pencil skirt, it's amazing and I've had it for many years and wear it at least once a week and it is still almost like new. I would also get a basic circle skirt like Jenny, or Doris, a Vamp top, and maybe a structured Laura Byrnes top (like the Lauren, Sean, Doris, etc.).
Thanks! I think I'm going to go with the Doris top and skirt and maybe a vamp top. Thank you all for your advice! I can't wait to start buying more PUG
