I'm working on an interactive documentary (film and online) which will be the first ever look at modern pin up culture, and I'm seeking some backing on my Kickstarter page. The project is super fun and on Kickstarter we have some great premiums, including below retail prices on shoots with Donigan Artworks (including guaranteed publication in Delicious Dolls magazine) and Mitzi & Co. Photography.
We also have…Continue

YAY! FINALLY got an evening out with Lana! After two months of waiting to pick my packages up from my USAddress, I finally got to take her for a twirl. This was one of those last second impulse "throw it in the Cart" from the PUG Online Yard Sale.
I LOVE how Lana makes me feel and the fit is so perfect. When I bought her I thought "oh the perfect summer dress to go anywhere." But honestly I had difficulty dressing her down, she looks so glamourous…Continue

It seems of late that my interest in 'dressing up ' has come to fade . Exploring the feminine image of myself , the posing ,modeling , preening 'acting' , I mean I spent allot of artistic time and energy with cameras and mirrors , working to ensure I got it, it was all fun, elating and exciting , mall walking, a stroll in town and parks . It was daring [darling :-) ] and bold , yet I always kept a calm and it was a dream , a charm even when it was a bit dangerous . And amazing myself…Continue

It does not matter what the moralists have to say or what pretty much everyone wanted to play down in the past – sexuality is a huge part of our lives, always has been and always will be. And one of the most pleasurable aspects of human sexuality, for women and men alike, has always been the seduction game which enabled women to break free of their social shackles and show their strength.
There can be no doubt that pin-up art and pin-up girls played a huge role in molding of what is…Continue
First and foremost it feels soooo good to finally be composing my entries on a keyboard again!! Yes I broke down sooner than expected and purchased a PC (rather than a Laptop or Notebook) and currently I using my Crosley TV as my Monitor (via a VGA cable). I'm really liking the concept of using my Retro inspired TV as a Monitor and may just keep it this way for the time being.…Continue
I know, I know every PUGster raves about the Monica dress. But I thought I'd share the mystery of this dress and it's impact in my life to add to the inspiration.
Four years ago I had a bad fall, injured my hip, gained weight through long recovery, and became depressed to the point of not even wanting to get out of my pyjama's. I was lost in a funky fog and didn't recognize myself in the mirror anymore. Any sense of identity was blurred away with the growing 70+ pound layers of…Continue

I started a little group on facebook after a few of my friends asked me to share with them how I lost all my weight. My depression got the best of me and I got pretty voluptuous some may say the more the better, but I felt miserable in my own body. So I finally decided to do something about it and I got up off my butt and moved my body. I started to make better food choices and made water my best friend, worked out at least 20 minutes every day and started…Continue

Hello everyone, my apologies if I bounce all over the place... this is my first attempt at a blog....

Hi guys, it's me Tahita and no I haven't had one of these blogs in a little bit now, many apologies for that :)
Allow me to make up for that with my review of one of my favourite additions to my pinup wardrobe this winter, the On the Dot Cardigan in Navy!
Now like a great many of you I live in a climate where you have to deal with a heck of a lot of snow and a heck of a lot of cold. The fact that it recently snowed for twenty-four hours straight did a wonderful…

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.
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…Continue

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…Continue
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.

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…Continue
