Let's Get Heatstroke! A Palm Springs Adventure

 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…

Would The Real PUG Addicts Please Stand Up?

"We're gonna have a problem here..."

Oh dear. It seems I have gone and purchased multiples of a few items recently. I think I may have a problem!

It started with the black Jessica, I adore my lipstick red version so much. I wore it for a coffee "date" and the poor gentleman couldn't get that look off his face. 

Last month I took a chance and ordered the red harlequin print Jenny dress. Due to my odd-ish size (39-31-39) it's hard for me to not…

Since they are kind of an old item (they've been there since I…

Running from Scary People in our Favorite PUG Items

So, this is another adventure from our personal blog, Junebugs and Georgia Peaches but if you ever wondered what it'd be like to run from stranger danger in a full skirt or full skirt-ed dress... here's a story!

A couple of weekends ago, I drove to Augusta, GA from Nashville, TN to visit my best friend and, amount other things, announce a pinup contest!  We were especially excited because it seemed like a lot…

Jealousy

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:…

PinUp Girl Changed Everything

Good Evening Darlings;

It's Canada Day weekend, and I thought that while I watched the too-early fireworks from my balcony window would be the perfect time to try to string together all my thoughts over the PUG Changed My Life contest and results...

I'm going to start by addressing what I am sure most people are wondering; of course I was disappointed when I didn't win the trip. So were all the other hundreds of entrants. My joy that Allie, someone who had felt like she was…

Pinup Contest Thoughts..

I love Pinup culture, and pinup style.  On the daily you can find me me with thick black winged eyeliner, red lips, and extremely teased hair.  I dress in a collection of vintage dresses, and PUG dresses of course,  most of the time.  So when an event comes up that allows me to go all out, and show off my pinup style 100% and have it be appreciated, I jump at it.   Some events that have been popping up are "pinup contests."    I have only participated in 2, as I am not sure how I feel about…

Pressure and Time, Makes a Diamond

Wasn't sure if I would ever talk about the first part of this blog publicly, but I knew I wanted to write about the happy ending, and that could only make sense if I told the beginning first. AND, it'll help give a closer look at who I am, what I've been through, and hopefully get the message out that the situation I was in, is more common than some like to think. It could happen to anyone, no…

A disappointing result from an otherwise usually complimenting society

I'm not sure if I was wearing PUG at the time, but if not it would have been a similar style.

I was at a party and a guy groped my boob, I slapped his hand away and he said "you love it, don't complain"

When some friend's were discussing it, some guy said (referring to me) "Yeah, it's because of the way she dresses."

It is so sad one day thinking Australia is an amazing model country for so many others and then realising we haven't come as far as we think (especially…
