Pin-Me-Up Progress Report No. 3

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…

Pin Up Girl Means Friendship

If you have read the previous blog posts I've written, you know that through PUG Style I've have met some wonderful people and had some great experiences. Well, I am back. And I am here to tell you that PUG Style has allowed me to meet some more great people and to have some new great experiences. After the last shopping meet up I had with some of the So Cal gals, I thought I would ask if anyone was interested in going out for afternoon tea, a proper British tea. I got some interest…

Pin Up on a College Budget

I'm a full time college student with a part time job. My tuition is paid mostly by scholarships and one or two loans (yay, debt....). Occasionally, I get a refund check - meaning that the amount of money paid by the scholarships and loans combined was too much! 

So I use that refund money to buy from the PUG clothing site. In the meantime, I have to pinch my pennies and go thrifting (which I've had to do my whole life - my family has never been well off) or go straight to the sales…

PUG through thick and thin....

Hi everyone!

At the weekend I received the most amazing self esteem boost whilst wearing PUG and I realised I hadn't updated everyone after my last blog post which can be read here, so I thought I would take the opportunity!

The last two months have been incredibly turbulent, I don't really know how this post is going to turn out so you may have to bear with me a…

Pin Me Up Progress Report No. 2

I've been a busy gal!

oldschoolparts on Ebay

I don't know if any of you have bought anything from this seller, but my experience was very lack luster. I bought a pencil skirt, and it was tight and the slit is very high. Fine, whatever, but the shipping was very slow. It first came up as delivered, but the buyer didn't pay enough for shipping for it was sent back. It took longer than necessary for the skirt to come. Based on all that I left neutral feedback, not positive, not negative. How about this guy leaves me a message saying I'm…

My Blog - Shared by Dita Von Teese!

Hi, 

I have been away a little lately, started a new (although only temporary) office job, hitting the gym 2-4 nights a week and blogging like a mad woman. Time just goes in an evening, much quicker than when I'm at my desk in the day at work for sure!

Some of you may remember me putting the link up to my blog when I first put it together in January.

You Can Pin Me Up, But You'll Never Pin Me Down: How Pinup Saved My Life

I’m sure that title sounds like an extreme statement. “Pinup saved my life.” But I honestly don’t know where I would be without the pinup community.

 

To understand how pinup saved my life, you have to understand why my life needed saving. It was 2010 and my confidence was at an all-time low. How I felt about myself was completely dependent on what others thought of me. I was a successful student working my way towards a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies while simultaneously…

Tahitia Goes to Viva Las Vegas: Part 1

Hey everyone! I've finally recovered enough from the jet lag and a VERY late arriving flight to sit down and tell you how Viva Las Vegas went. In one word, I would say...



WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!



I literally had the best vacation of my life at Viva, so if you all have a minute or two I'd be happy to tell you all about my very first trip to Las Vegas and my first time going to the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly…

Newbie Alert!

Hi!! This is going to be a bit all over the place, my apologies ahead of time.



I'm Ellie, and I've been falling in love with the PUG style a little at a time for the past three years. Last year, I tumbled all the way and I haven't looked back since! 

First off, I'm 19. I have so much time to stock my PUG wardrobe and make it perfect! I'm really glad I discovered the PUG website when I did. 

The first dress I bought was the DD L'Amour. WOW. I did NOT expect it to…

Viva Las Vegas Recap!

VLV 16 was our first and will not be our last - our rooms are already booked for next year. :-) I can't even begin to describe the phenomenon that is Viva Las Vegas. It is literally like being emerged into another culture. The music, the cars, the hair, the clothes, the everything.  We got home last night at 2 am and I could not sleep - every time I closed by eyes I dreamt of Viva.  It's like a rockabilly hangover!

Pin-Me-Up Progress Report

After about 2 weeks into my Pin-Me-Up personal challenge to revamp my tired stay-at-home-mom, Active Wear Hell wardrobe into a classy Pinup/Vintage homage, I thought it was about time for a progress report.  

It's going...slowly...in the right direction.  I wish I could blink my eyes like Jeannie and have the entire PUG collection in my closet, but alas, I must scrimp and slowly collect when money permits, just like the rest of these lovely PUG gals here.  (But I must say that I am…
