List your measurements if you'd like to help others with sizing
I wear a size Small in PUG house brands (Pinup Couture, Deadly Dames, Laura Byrnes & Dixiefried), and my measurements are 35" bust, 27" waist, 37" hips.

UPDATE: As of August 2013, post-baby, my new measurements are 35" bust, 28" waist, and 39" hips. I'm now essentially a S up top and a M everywhere else, so I wear either a Small or a Medium depending upon the garment.

 You know, sometimes I'm dumb. I ascribe this mostly to the fact that as the Supreme Overlord of PUG, after 15 years I have gotten to the point that I don't really "work" in the same sense that I used to. I've gone from being the only person in the business, responsible for doing everything, thinking about everything, and anticipating everything, to being the Supervisor of the business, supported by many amazing people who do things, think about things, and…

I’m not a jealous person, usually. I feel like it’s at the top of the list of useless/harmful emotions. But sometimes I get jealous. Today I did. When I do, I feel the most important thing to do is ask myself *why*-

So today, I was on the intertubes and I ran across a blog run by a woman who paints, cooks, sews, etc. She documents her life. And as I was scrolling through her images, I felt it - this weird sinking feeling in my gut. Then I heard it - my inner voice, and it was…


Masuimi & Laura's Day of WIN

Back in the PUG day, starting around 2006,  Masuimi & I would do photo shoots for Pinup Girl. Masuimi has been modeling for the website since 2004, but until 2006 my homie Octavio (NSFW) did most of the shoots for the site, including this famous photo of Masuimi in the original Greta Dress:…

Hi supreme overphotographer :) I wish everything continues working perfect and mean people and their envy and their jealously don't get into anything in your life, nor pro less personal. I love to see people so centered sharing their thoughts, please, keep it that way :) This sick world needs a change... empty-bitchy minds can't get away. Congratulations for the store!!! I'll visit it some day :)

Hi Laura :-) Since you are a photographer, I'm hoping you might be able to recommend someone to me about doing a shoot at Viva? I've had a look at a lot of the photographers like Miss Missy, Vestige and Retro dolls and their stuff looks great but seems very focuser on lingerie shoots. I want somehing that I can show my whole friends and family lol. Basically the reason I am asking you is because I like the style of shooting that Pinup Girl Clothing is shot- so if you have Elanyone you could recommend to me I would be so grateful!

Hey Laura, I am a HUGE Marilyn Monroe fan so I was super excited to find out that you had one more Niagara dress in my size! I tried my best to do it some justice when I finally put it to use at Harvelle's last night haha. Additionally, I wanted to say how much I admire all you ladies at PUG for being an advocate for all women and the way in which you have used your influence to speak out against body shaming and bullying. I really do believe that once you learn to appreciate many different forms of the female body, you can begin to really appreciate yourself, which has been one of my biggest struggles as an adolescent and young woman and you have certainly  done an amazing job of embracing all women. I was at your grand opening and regret that I was not able to tell you this in person, however I'm sure you already had so much going on. You inspire me so much and I hope to one day be among the ranks of strong women such as yourselves.
