Many of you will recall the rebuke Andy Sachs(Anne Hathaway) earns in the film The Devil Wears Prada from her boss Miranda Priestly(Meryl Streep) about the route taken by cerulean from when Oscar de la Renta presented his first collection in that color until much later, when it appeared as the reason’s color in department stores all over the world, representing millions of dollars to the fashion industry. It’s a vain discourse, but a truly admirable one because of the great amount of…

PUG and Respect from Others

Since I have started dressing in the PUG/Vintage style again I have noticed something: People treat me with more respect.  Now, I do not mean to indicate that people were disrespecting me before.  It's more that now people do little things that they didn't do before, like holding open the doors, bowing (weird at first, but I'm get used to it), and using honorifics (ma'am, Ms., etc).

Becoming a dress girl

If you were to ask anyone who has known me for longer than 2 minutes they would tell you that I am not really a dress girl. I live in jeans, which isn't too unusual considering that this is the 21st century. As a California girl I have the luxury of wearing sandals, shorts and tank tops almost all year long. We really do have some fabulous weather. Now I have loved the pinup girl style since I was a teenager. However I always…

Cicada Time

As some of you may know by now, I have put together a few meet up events here in the LA area over the last year and a half or so. It is just part of my nature to try to be an organizer. And in fact it is part of my professional training. But I digress. But I must admit that it is partly due to one very selfish reason that I put these things together. And that is that I want to meet and connect as friends with other pinup women. None of the things I've put together have had…

However I have recently found myself in a style slump. Although I tend to wear a lot of retro inspired outfits I am finding that the aesthetics is becoming too generic....

So for this winter I have been warping my usual looks with a 90s and…

Let Me Tell Ya 'Bout My Best Friend.... Jenny! (A Post About How I'm Obsessed With the Jenny Skirt)

So, I've been getting a lot of questions about my petticoats lately on my personal blog, Junebugs and Georgia Peaches, and my instagram regarding how I'm able to get the skirts of the pieces I wear so "full."  I even had a couple of girls accuse me of holding out of them, I would never! haha.  After working on my outfit round-up blog post for the…
