How high do I get and how low do I go ?

   That is to say how high brow do I get and how low brow do I go . Being born and an early childhood in NYC yet growing up in Pa country I think I got a varied exposure of ' brows ' . I find it interesting that I am drawn to this 'pin up ' culture ' which seems to me as being a cross roads of sorts between high and low but not really a middle ground , a mix of tasteful fashions of the 40's 50's and punk new wave attitudes [ such as tattoos ] . I guess my lowbrow-ness is due to rock n roll…

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…

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…

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…
