Five Retro-Style Bikinis to Wear in 2015

Fashion time capsule takes us this summer to the golden era of bikini, to the past time when women had fewer props to emphasize their attributes and conceal their shortcomings. They had been doing it masterfully nevertheless. To capture the vintage vibe present in the current designs, you’d have to know what to look in general to be spot-on.

Expert Tips

Here are some guidelines to follow when you’re out to pick the perfect old-times bikini:

Happy 2015 my Dah-lings!!

For me this year has begun with a few significant changes, but overall it still feels the same. Big New  Ho-rah #1, I finally moved!!!! after months of pondering on it! So now I  definitely have the additional space i need(ed) to make a mini-studio in my apartment.

The move itself wasn't hectic, but (as a girl) coming up with that perfect theme/color scheme that still matches my Vintage lifestyle has been a new and interesting…

PUG Across Indiana, 2014

I know it’s been a while. Trust me, if I hadn’t decided to declare a two week vacation for myself, I would probably be working on something for work right now. I really needed a break! This past week, my first week of my two week vacation, I have been staring blankly at my walls, which is something I’ve been waiting to do for so long; Oooh! I read a book! I have been making some clothes. I even went to the movies; which is something I never, seriously never, do! I have pretty much caught up…

My PUG Reviews for December 2014 ;)

Hey everyone! :) Happy New Year! It's been a long time since I've done a Pinup Girl Style blog, so I thought I'd share some reviews of the PUG items I've acquired over the past month. I wouldn't normally have THIS many things to review all at once, especially from one month. BUT, December turned out to be pretty good to me... for many reasons.

That Time Tahitia Met Santa with Her Friend Lana

Hi guys, it's me Tahitia and I apologize for not having posted a review here on Pinup Girl Style in quite some time now, sorry! Believe me when I say that I'm still a PUG Superfan through and through, and so I'd like to make up for my absence here by sharing with you a very special review. The Lana Dress which I wore that time I met Santa. You can read the same review on my blog in it's entirety, but I wanted to share it here as well since this was the home of my very first regular blog AND…

How do I get myself out there?

Trying to find time to go to any event is difficult, but if it benefits me in the long-run I'd rather do this now than later. 

I love being a mother, I love working at this current job because I love the money that helps me to make sure my daughter has things. 

But of course I want to pursue my real dream of modelling. It has been so strenuous trying to find the time and places or even take the steps to help at least take the first step in the right direction. 

So my question…

The Fall and Winter Wardrobe Guide for Pinup, Retro and Vintage Mavens

I've seen a lot of posts on here about doing pinup in the winter, so I've decided to put together a comprehensive guide. I'll be staring, of course, with the undergarments and topping it off with accessories.  I've posted this here first but it will go live on my personal blog Friday.  Enjoy and let me know what you think or what else you'd add into this crazy list.

Need a Pin-up Girl Name

   Hi, I've been searching for a name for over a year. I found this site today, and decided to give it a try.

   I want my name to be sweet, but I'd rather it be something that other famous pin-up girls don't have. So no Marilyn or Bettie.

   I found this one pin-up girl named Bettie Banshee and I LOVE that name! I'm definitely not using it since it's someone else's though.

   I want something cool and kind of dark, but not like totally gory and gothic, if you know what…

Bomb Girls - the TV show

Hi girls !

I recently discovered the TV show "Bomb Girls". I am sure some of you know that because it as been on the TV since 2013 BUT I didn't found any post on it so here I go !

We follow them during their housewife life or love stories, everyday life, during their fights for more rights and we see a piece of what was life during the WWII.

I found the actors great, the story follows the…

Custom Made Vintage Inspired Lingerie from Ohhh Lulu

Ohhh Lulu is a brand that has been on my radar for quite some time.  Unfortunately for me, I was under the impression that Sarah’s wonderful underthings wouldn’t work for my full bust.  That was until I saw some pictures on her site that clearly featured a larger chested woman.  Curious I contacted Sara and asked if she could make a set in my size.  Sarah agreed under the condition that she could not offer her regular fit guarantee since she has never made…
