How do you clean your dresses with a black print on white?

I love the Evelyn in Yellow Rose (http://www.pinupgirlclothing.com/evelyn-dress-yellow-vintage-floral.html) but I'm struggling with cleaning it. Unsurprisingly, the white ground tends to get a lot of little stains. The first time I washed this dress, I washed it cold on its own and hung it to dry, but the black transferred onto the white ground a little bit.Any ideas for removing stains and keeping the blacks…See More

SWAP 2 Annas in XL for one swing dress in XL

Hoping to swap 2 worn-a-few-times-but-still-nice Annas for a worn-but-still-nice swing dress or swing skirt.While these dresses have different marked sizes they fit very similarly.White Anna with red cherry print - XL - this dress has a small highlighter mark on the back in the bottom, will send photos upon request.  Because the mark is small and in the back on the bottom, they're nothing that makes the dress unwearable for daytime wear, though it wouldn't be good for a formal occasion.Red Anna…See More

Anyone else have to wear work t-shirts for events? How do you pretty those up?

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

Facebook group!

Hey, PUG style friends -I created a little unofficial group for us to connect on FB so it's easier for us to like each other's pages, make friends with each other on there, etc.  It's closed, so people can see you're a member, but not the posts.https://www.facebook.com/groups/720413817978433/If your name on PUG style is way different than your name on FB, send me a note on PUG style and I'll make sure you get added.See More

Be aware: the new Ginger fits very differently than the old Ginger

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

A weekend spent entirely in pinup . . .

Posted on October 22, 2013 at 5:40pm 7 Comments

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…

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…

Alika Circle in the new red and black polkadot print, 3x

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!
