I have to wear a work tshirt to a donor cultivation party today, and pinups, it is hurting my confidence that I can't wear something pretty. Does anyone else have a style they wear with tshirts that works for them? I've got a couple ideas but nothing really works super well. Open to ideas outside of pinup aesthetic.Thanks everyone and happy Friday!See More

Saddened to report that I literally can't even zip halfway the new Ginger in an XL, which is my ordinary Pinup Girl Clothing size and the size of my other Ginger.  Disappointed, because my best friend got me this and I was going to wear it for their civil ceremony on the 16th; I'm sure I will find something else to wear instead but still.See More

Anyone interested in a Pinup Girl meetup for Dapper Day at Disneyland?

So, this is a day on which people wear their Sunday best to Disneyland (Feb 23 2014)! We'd fit right in. Check out the pics, lots of people are actually wearing vintage dresses.http://dapperday.com/feb-23-2014-disneylandSee More

A weekend spent entirely in pinup . . .

So, I went to a retreat center in the woods this weekend. The event is probably too specific to explain here (it's sort of a reenactment/roleplaying activity, but more of a fantasy-ish one than a historical one so there's a wide range of possibilities for what people can do), but basically there are a lot of people who attend who are very devoted to wearing costumes they've worked extensively on.  For various reasons I have been a little bit ill so I wasn't able to participate in the…See More

Do you participate in any subcultures or activities that value the pinup aesthetic? Where do you go to get your pinup on?

So, I went to a burlesque show last night where I was initially enchanted to see members of the audience wearing pinup style dresses and hair flowers . . . but my enthusiasm faded when every single one of those girls got up on the stage for the curtain call and it turned out they were wearing it because they were in the show.  I guess I was hoping to find other people who wear pinup who aren't wearing it because they're in a show but just for everyday reasons.It got me thinking and I wanted to…See More

I just saw a lady walk by (I'm near Pike Place Market) wearing the Bettie Page Side Effect in leopard, with matching leopard purse with red flower & red hair flower & tres cute black flats trimmed in red ... pushing a walker.  I hope when I'm that old I'm still a pinup too!

I was lucky enough to visit the new Bettie Page store here on Capitol Hill and get the Veronica on sale for only about $60 all told. It looks amazing on me and I got a hair flower at a shop down the street…

If I did live near you, I would be interested in meet ups. Too bad I live so far away in Toronto. I'll be happy to meet you at Viva though! Woo hoo!
