Hi Ladies! I run Lovely Pinup, a fashion blog which reviews pinup clothing and beauty items (link here if anyone is interested). Thought I'd share my latest review on the fabulous Deadly Dames Cigarette Pants:
Pants are a difficult one for me. My waist is a fair bit smaller than my hips, leading to awkward fits and gaps in the back of my jeans. It drives me crazy! I very rarely order pants online for this…
Her own, to be exact!
I've been engaged for just over a year now, and my fiance and I have finally settled on a date!
We have family and friends in to separate states, Florida and Connecticut, so we decided to hold two ceremonies in both states to include everyone!
How does this relate to the PUG life?
Well, I've decided on one dress already!
I've had my eye on the Ava for quite a while, and now I've got a really good reason to…
Nothing like a classic or retro themed movie when you're in that old school mood ;) Thought I'd share a few lesser known films that have become some of my all time favorites.

I wanted to say Happy birthday Mr . Henry Fonda . Born May 16 1905. The reason Why posted this is because well he is one many amazing Gentlemen actors I have ever seen act . We really don't see that anymore now in the 21st century in male actors . Here is one of my favorite movies along with Ms. Lucy. Your's Mine's and Ours ! And Of course a film that made me cry was Big street with her also and you will see a very young Endora from Bewitched in this film .
Hey everyone! It's Tahitia here and I just wanted to say hello and and let you all in on some things that have been going on in my life.
For starters, I've never been this busy before in my life and I'm having just so much fun in the process. It's taken a while but so many things that before I used to say "I'll get around to it" or "Maybe some day" are actually happening now, and so much of it started with Pinup Girl Clothing and this community.
I couldn't have done so…
THEN I went through all my pencil skirts and only a couple of Vamp Tops as I have so many it's not funny. I love them and have them in 6 different colours.
So after starting a bit of a health blitz, I decided to see what items felt a little looser, and which ones fit me better. I was absolutely stoked to find that the Button Front Linen Dress in Kelly Green FITS!!! Just in time for... errrrr... Winter. Well, at the rate I'm going it's going to look great for summer :P I love adding a belt to the dresses as I have a peculiarly little waist, and bigger boobies :) I am NOT complaining though…Continue

I read a report today that the death toll has topped 800 in the Bangladesh factory collapse. 800! The number is staggering and horrifying. These workers have some of the lowest wages in the world and the garment industry is largely unregulated in countries like Bangladesh. This kind of stuff really puts into perspective how important it is to support brands like PUG that are committed to being made in the USA, in conditions that ensure a living wage to the talented workers that make the…Continue
I originally found a dress from Natalie that I was going to buy via eBay and she contacted me here asking if I had sent her the message. She was then nice enough to send me photos of everything she had (all of which was fabulous) and then ship it out to me marked as a gift (I'm in the Netherlands and customs here is crazy).
It arrived 20 days later with just 20 euro in customs on it and everything is quite simply fabulous. Everything also had tags on it which I wasn't actually…Continue
Anyone who knows me knows I have a little problem (okay, a huge problem) with collecting gelatin molds. I have no idea where my fascination started, but I imagine that it has something to do with my childhood, and that we had vintage copper gelatin molds on the wall in our kitchen.
Many people frown upon gelatin – they associate it with ‘hospital food’ or with being ill. I can assure you that this recipe will remind you of neither of those.…
Episode 2 of our new Pinup TV web series has been released! Here we are at Viva Las Vegas 16 acting like goofballs as promised <3
Greetings beautiful PUGsters!
I'll preface my review by saying that I work in a project management position in an academic medical setting in NYC, so when purchasing PUG, I always have to consider if I'll be able to wear that item to work. Sadly, I spend more time at the office than anywhere else and commute almost 3 hours each day, so I generally try to purchase *somewhat* practical items, and stay within the bounds of decency for professional purposes. Luckily, we don't have an…Continue
HELP!!!! My fiancé and I are doing a Couples Hollywood Noir shoot as our engagement photos. I'm trying to find a dress appropriate to the theme and time period. That being said, I'm a curvier gal so I'm looking for something to flatter a 34in waist and 47in hips! Suggestions PLEASE???!!!!
I know a lot of ladies on here are trying to revamp their wardrobe into something pinup so I decided to make a post with a list of just basic stuff that will make you happy for years to come. It is important to look around and find a brand and cut that suits you (especially when buying a basic that you intend to keep around).
There's nothing quite like having a couple of basic items you can fall back on or mix and match with everything, and to me black is the most classic color.…Continue
I've been Blonde or some variation of it for about 10 years now. Feeling like I needed a change but not quite ready to go to the dark side I decided to start playing with temporary color and I LOVE it!
The best part is that they almost completely wash out and never last longer than 3 weeks. My favorite brand so far is Tish & Snooky's Manic Panic because they are vegan and cruelty free and it's pretty gentle on the hair.…Continue
More lacy Wanting Vixen! The popular Fetish Mask in black lace temptress has been sold out for a while now, but it's back… with a small re-design :) AND while I'm at it, I've decides to add the Vixen Corset in this fabric as well ;) Check'em out!…Continue

Fail. Across the board. I've worn active wear 70% of the time these past 2 weeks and haven't put much effort into hair or makeup.
BUT! I have excuses. (Excuses are a pet peeve of mine, so I apologize for giving them.) 1) I took on a big project that helps my husband, but takes up my free time and, frankly, my excess motivation, and 2) I am currently 2 months pregnant (yay!) so morning queasiness and depleted energy levels are zapping any "oomph" left in me to put effort into my…Continue
