If you were to ask anyone who has known me for longer than 2 minutes they would tell you that I am not really a dress girl. I live in jeans, which isn't too unusual considering that this is the 21st century. As a California girl I have the luxury of wearing sandals, shorts and tank tops almost all year long. We really do have some fabulous weather. Now I have loved the pinup girl style since I was a teenager. However I always…Continue

As some of you may know by now, I have put together a few meet up events here in the LA area over the last year and a half or so. It is just part of my nature to try to be an organizer. And in fact it is part of my professional training. But I digress. But I must admit that it is partly due to one very selfish reason that I put these things together. And that is that I want to meet and connect as friends with other pinup women. None of the things I've put together have had…Continue
As you all know from my genesis blog I am extremely interested in pin-up/retro looks and lifestyles (http://frillsbowstanikoverve.blogspot.com.au/). However I have recently found myself in a style slump. Although I tend to wear a lot of retro inspired outfits I am finding that the aesthetics is becoming too generic....
So for this winter I have been warping my usual looks with a 90s and…

So, I've been getting a lot of questions about my petticoats lately on my personal blog, Junebugs and Georgia Peaches, and my instagram regarding how I'm able to get the skirts of the pieces I wear so "full." I even had a couple of girls accuse me of holding out of them, I would never! haha. After working on my outfit round-up blog post for the…Continue
Hello guys, it’s me Tahitia again and I’m here to talk to you about why you’re ready to rock a high waisted bikini this summer even if you don’t know it yet.
In fact here’s something that you might not know, despite what comes to mind when you hear the name “bikini”, a true bikini doesn’t have to be limited to the “bikini panty” or “string bikini bottoms” as beauty & fashion magazines & television would have you believe. In fact just googling the likes…Continue
Now, I'm not entirely sure if anyone really NEEDS a review of this lovely because, I don't think I've met very many PUG girls without one, but just in case you don't yet have this dress, here's a review of the Erin, the quintessential bad girl dress.
You'll notice that this is…Continue
Finding the perfect dress for prom can be a daunting task. Lord knows the choices I made some 15 years ago still haunt me to this day. If I could do it all over again I would take a cue from www.pinupgirlclothing.com and it's great options for the modern pinup. From shoes to makeup and accessories and styles ranging from glamorous gowns to fun dresses to dance the night away in, the site serves as a one stop shop for…Continue
Is there a time and a place in 2014 and beyond to wear a bullet bra?
The age old question, do I want torpedo shaped breasts or don't I? ;)
In the link…Continue
As any vintage collector can tell you, mid-century fashion often times takes inspirations from different cultures. We have Mexican circle skirts, Hawaiian/Polynesian print clothing, western wear and various novelty prints that depict scenes from all over the world.…Continue
The other day I got the "why do you dress like that?" question.
Normally, most of us are used to getting that question - being head-to-toe vintage is not a mainstream fashion choice and it piques attention when someone outside of the scene encounters it. One of the reasons why (I think) it's such a confidence booster to dress this way is because it is different and it is sexy and wearing this clothing is almost an armor - it's one of those things we know more about…Continue
Dapper Day Spring 2014 in Orlando just so happened to fall on my 25th birthday! It was the perfect way to spend the day for me. I wore my PUG Birdie dress which I chose and purchased specifically for the occasion! I am completely obsessed with this dress.
It was really, truly my favorite birthday thus far. I can't deny that I do love attention and I certainly got a lot of it yesterday. I can't even count how many times I was stopped by people asking to take my picture. My favorite…Continue
Feeling Blue..Tiffany Blue
Hands down, my Spring's must have is the Micheline dress in Tiffany Blue.
No matter your size, this dress is…Continue
Back in November I purchased a Bridgette dress from PUG and I sent it to my mom for shipping convenience reasons.
I finally received it this week after several months of it accompanying her to and from work while she forgot to drive the post office. Which is fine because she did actually send it... and good things come to those who wait.
Now, to the review.
I purchased a size up following the advice from a lady who owns one in teal, she usually wears a size…Continue
Hey everyone, it’s been a little while since I've regularly posted here but I want to make a real effort at getting both my Great Lake Pinup blog started again as a regular feature as well as being a regular contributing member of the Pinup Girl Style community :)
After all I'd never want you guys to think that I'd stop loving PUG because I promise you that will NEVER happen :)
Anyways you can find my full review of Pinup Girl Clothing's I Am C3P0 Tunic …
With St. Patrick's Day right around the corner, I've put together another style board/wishlist with some of my favorite beauty and fashion looks inspired by the holiday.
If you are mad for plaid like me, you will lose your mind over these beautiful taffeta designs from the Laura Byrnes California collection. Mix and match these pieces or wear on their own for tasteful tartan year round. I recently wore the…Continue
This is another post from my Personal Blog, Junebugs and Georgia Peaches but I don't know how many of my readers there are as in love with PUG as I am, and I know you ladies are! This is a little story of my wait for the Neverland dress and what happened the first time I just so happened to wear it. I think it's my lucky dress!…Continue
Though I dress in pinup\vintage style 100% these days, I enjoy many activities outside of the fashion world - and I'm sure you do too. I love to cook, dance, write, and exercise. I play bass, collect comic books, and cosplay at various conventions. I'm an IT professional and an aspiring fitness instructor. Don't get me wrong, I love a fluffy petticoat, rich red lipstick, and a pair of new seamed stockings, but I'm happiest on the hiking trail or in the kitchen creating something delicious…Continue
I know this post was VERY late but I figured that someone would enjoy it so I didn't forget about it.
On January 8th, 2014 I received an email that would change my life and I didn't know it when I saw it.
When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I do is check my phone despite not being…Continue
Time is so very precious. Why does it fly by so quickly? Why do the great times in life go by even quicker? Oh well, stuff happens. And a few weeks ago I had a glorious holiday in New Orleans. This is the stuff that dreams are made of. A very long time ago my spouse and I decided that going on vacations are a very top priority for us in our lives. We have so many interests. And we have so many things that we love. A few months ago we decided that we had to go to New Orleans. Quite a few of…Continue
