Hey everyone! I wanted to take a minute to let you all know that I've just created the Great Lakes Pin-Up Group here on PInup Girl Style (with the help of my hubby for the logo artwork).

This is going to be a group for everyone PUG, pinup, retro, rockabilly and vintage style fan who lives on or near the Great Lakes or anyone nearby that wants to be involved too. So if your from Detroit, Cleveland, Buffalo, Toronto, Chicago, Sault Ste Marie, Thunder Bay, Milwaukee, Green Bay, Rochester, or even further away from the lakes like Ottawa, Montreal or even Boston and New York, ANYWHERE in between or ANYWHERE else in the world for that matter, I'd love to have you be a part of the group :)

My biggest goal for this group (aside from getting to know eachother here) is to organize some amazing get togethers once the weather gets warm again.

Shopping trips, walking tours, nights at the movies, nights at plays and musicals (I'd love to see Les Miz with some PUG ladies if I can), trips to the beach, nights at roller derbys, get togethers at car shows, days at fairs and amusement parks and any other kind of get togethers that you can think of are all on the table for this year. It might not happen this year, but I'd even love to even try to organize a trip to Times Square in New York for New Years Eve.

Aside from trips though I'm sure that there are plenty of tips on vintage stores you can shop at, advice for cold weather pinup outfits and other things that we can share here. I've had so much fun meeting you and chatting with you all here on Pinup Style, and I can't wait for the chance to meet some of you in this area in person.

So join up and I hope to see you all soon :)

So glad you love it Leanna! Your meet-ups were one of the big inspirations to try put this together.

If I'm ever in your area I'd LOVE to go to one of your meet-ups.

Well it looks like not including myself we have five VERY beautiful members! Yayyyy!

Now to start actually planning one or two get togethers. There've already been some awesome ideas on the forum post so I'll keep you all posted on the plans as they develop :)

Comment by Brandi Shuey on February 20, 2013 at 5:38pm

You CAN include yourself in that :)

Hey guys! I'm about to start the planning for our first official meet & greet and I wanted to know how you all felt about the idea of making the together a shopping trip in Toronto?

I realize that we're very spread out geographically here so if Toronto's too far away for everyone we can try to find something that's more central.

Either way I just wanted to know if this was an idea that you could all see happening, and if it was if you could even see trying to persuade friends of yours to come along too?

Let me know what you think guys either here or on the forum thread here :)

I'd love to do some Toronto thrifting!!! I do have Toronto friends so I'm sure I could convince a few of them to meet up with us. When are you thinking? April-May ish?

Comment by Tahitia Belle Fille on February 27, 2013 at 1:09pm

Nice!! I'm getting so excited! I'm think mid May when it should be warm enough to wear our oh so pretty dresses. :) 

Of course if the weather permits we could even do it sooner, say late April.

Right now I'm researching vintage stores and shops on Google and Yelp, after that I'll go with a friend of mine to scout out the stores in person and talk to the staff to see if they'd be interested in having us come by as a group, as well as get a rough idea of the route that we'll be taking.

I'll keep you all posted. :)
