Hello, all. I am looking at buying a kinky ruffles skirt in 2X since I am concerned that my hips would be too large for an XL (and I found a crazy good deal), but the waistband is at least 3" too…Continue

Hello, ladies. I have a red Haunted Housewife dress in XL in lovely condition, only worn twice. I adore this dress, it's just too big on me all over (I think it runs a bit big). I'm looking to trade it for a L in any colorway. Either the same condition is fine, or I'd be willing to pay a bit in addition to the trade for NWT or NWOT. Thanks!See More
So, this is kind of embarassing... I just traded my XL for a L because it was so roomy in the waist, but I way overestimated the bust of the L. There is just no way I can wear it comfortably or decently, even if the waist is perfect. The dress I have has only been tried on. It is the fetish print, and I am looking to trade for the same print in an XL. Really sad about this, hopefully I can work something out :'( See More
I do not usually go for light colors, but this print is just my favorite thing. However, I cannot abide pink, and everywhere I've looked only pink is available. I'm not sure if Collectif will bring back the turquoise... I asked them and they've not gotten back to me. Does anyone have one they'd like to part with, or know where I could get my hands on one? Thank you!See More
Hello, ladies. I have been looking for at least a couple roses and possibly some other good quality hair flowers for a while now, but they are always SO large that I think they would sort of swallow my head and my fine, thin hair. Does anyone know where I could get something smaller- not miniature, necessarily, just not so large it could cover my face? Thanks!See More
I bought this adorable top on eBay. It was described as NWOT. I tried it on once, but while it looked really dynamite, it was uncomfortably tight on my bust. The empire waist is VERY flattering. The fabric has some stretch. $30. See More
Hello, ladies. I am posting for a friend who is going to be in her sister's wedding soon, and is in need of a red dress. She said that it is a specific shade of red, but I'm not sure exactly what it is. However, she is looking for something retro or vintage styled, so I told her I'd keep an eye out. She has a small bust/torso, but wide hips, so I'd say she's a medium for wiggle dresses and a small for swing dresses. She's also a college student, so something less than $100 would be ideal.

Casting out another line here... I've posted a couple times before but not gotten much response. I'm currently trying to build a completely new wardrobe, but I'm a broke college student so I can't afford to buy some of my most coveted items new.Here are some items I'm very interested in owning: DD Haunted Housewife Dress, black or vintage red roseDD Kinky Ruffles Skirt, black, red, or vintage red roseLorelei Dress, plum Erin Dress, plumHeidi Dress, black cherries or black pin dot DD Film Noir…See More
I have watched/read several tutorials (including Micheline's) and tried several times to draw my eyebrows in, but they always end up looking awful. My brows are naturally somewhat thick, but not especially dark, and they are more rounded than arched. They have a pretty obvious line in which I pluck them, because outside of that line they just look messy. My eyebrows are also very wideset, making my eyes look further apart, but when I draw them in further they just look stupid. Finally, I have…See More

Hello ladies! I am trying to transition from a lowly goth kid who wears sh*t kicker boots or ugly skate shoes all the time to a pinup lady in heels.This is quite a big change for me, obviously. The heels are one of the things that scare me most about this new style I am so set on. I can't wear flats because of my very short, fat (and muscular) legs (and they're gross looking) and I am not a fan of wedges. I adore heels, but being a college student I do a fair amount of walking and I also have a…See More
Hello, ladies! I am trying to shed my old look and put together an entirely new pinup wardrobe! I need all of the following:-Skirts, particularly pencil, wiggle, and swing skirts. I am particularly lusting after the Kinky Ruffles skirt in black or rose print and the Bettie Page jumper skirt in black swing or pencil. -Tops, boleros, cardigans, etc. -Dresses! I'm dying…See More
I have one item to sell or trade- a 2X Bettie Page Alika pencil dress in white. I have worn this dress twice (it was bought for graduation since white was required, otherwise I would not buy a white dress). I would be happy to swap it for the same dress in a darker color or something similar in XL or 2X in a dark color, or sell it for a reasonable price. …See More
I am a premed biology student with a penchant for vintage fashion. I am currently trying to shed my 90s goth kid look and adopt a sexy, stylish pinup style with a little bite. Any tips on living the pinup lifestyle are welcome! I hope to rebuild my wardrobe and meet some lovely ladies here :)

There does not appear to be any stretch in the fabric of the Evelyn. The bust runs larger on this style, but to be honest, I would be hesitant at your bust size. I'm a 34C and the top was too big on me. It would probably fit you, but I would be worried that it would be snug.
