Again About History of Pinup

Ancient man clearly had some level of reverence for the female structure, according to Paleolithic models of blessed by the gods ladies.

These Venuses served a need or the benefit of everyone some way or another, regardless of the fact that they don't take after our strict meaning of pin-up.

Early American impacts in magazine and print outline incorporate Howard…

Corsets are probably one of the most popular while at the same time most harshly criticized pieces of women’s garments.

Victorian era saw great rise in popularity of corsets as well as their demise. How so? For the Victorian ladies it was common to waist up and get the perfect hourglass shape that was, at the time, cherished and, well, expected. However, the type of corsets worn then was uncomfortable and was known to cause…

How People Imagined The Future

The favorite task of all dreamers - imagine will look our future. There were always many dreamers, and now we can turn back and see the dreams of people from past centuries. One such project - a series of drawings from Jean-Marc Côté, made in 1899, 1900, 1901 and 1910, entitled "France in the year 2000", where artists have tried to predict the future one hundred years ahead.

Paintings include some interesting innovations, which, according to the authors, would occur over the next… Continue

Hi dolls! Jessica here, with another installment of PUG Across Indiana; 2015 edition. Can you believe how fast this year has gone?!

WOW! Life! Life has been absolutely beautiful. I’ve made some lifestyle changes within the past several months, and that has caused me to fit into some of the PUG I had that was lonely and neglected in my closet because it was too tight! HAHA! I now have a new haul of PUG that will need to be sold because some things are too big. Great for me,…

Selling Deadly Dames Hot Rod Honey Dress in Venus Fly Trap print size Large

Hello, Ladies! 

I have a Deadly Dames Hot Rod Honey Dress size Large in the Venus Fly Print that I would like to sell for 80.00 (shipping included) or trade for a size XL. The dress is in perfect condition but doesn't have the tags attached. I planned wearing it one day but when I tried it on,  I didn't like the way the dress fit me, and the belt I wore for, like, 2 hour. I have the tags saved and put away with the dress, I know that some ladies like to collect them, so they we be…

Hello Pin up World!!

I am new to this community and I'm super excited about it! I'm happy theres so many others that share the same interest as me. Where I come from, there aren't many pin up girls especially my age (20). So its hard for me to talk to others about my passion. 

Looking forward to making some new friends :)

It's been a while....

I realise that it's been waaaaay too long since I've logged on here.
So much has happened, I've travelled a little bit, bought a whole load of new clothes and missed PUG tremendously!
So I endeavour to get some new photos on, update my page and re connect with PUG!
That's my promise ☺️

Work clothes

So seen as though I'm at work ALL day everyday and I usually just have something smart on I decided a while back that I needed to get myself PUG'd up for work.
But here's my difficulty, what do you wear to an office job? It's has to be smart, not too revealing and I work for the NHS so I can't have anything which may raise eyebrows, so no patterns as such.
Anyone any ideas?
