Deadly Dames Malibu Tiki Dress - The Return of the Polynesian Princess

  One of the most beloved things I collect are Hawaiian dresses, be it Surf and Sand, Miss Hawaii or Alfred Shaheen they are my obsession.The construction and cut were nothing like you would find from most designers in the 40's and 50's, so I knew for Deadly Dames I had to meld all my favorite designs into one to create the ultimate dress. I added a bolero to all styles, took away the halter straps and added the ever popular adjustable straps from the Deadly Dames Vamp Dress. I also got rid…

Rago Shapewear - The Original Innovator in Mid Century Under Garments

It's no secret that I am a huge fan of shapewear.  If you just glance at my blog 'Fuller Figure Fuller Bust' you will see evidence of my corset addiction.  If you read on a bit further you will come across a number if shapewear and cincher reviews, as I tried to find my perfect stomach tamer.  I must admit I thought I had found The One.  It pulled me in, smoothed me out, yes it was a little tricky to pee…

How the Veronica Wiggled its way into our Hearts

The Veronica has been one of my favs since first catching a glimpse of it on the sample rack and it is finally in stock in all colorways!  I like the contrasting blue and red the best!  Which ones your favorite?  The Veronica is an hourglass girl's dream in curve-loving bengaline with a nipped-in waistband and an adorable heart-shaped frame at the bust. Lots of stretch everywhere but the waist, this sexy wiggle will accommodate a range of bust and hip sizes. Finished off with a charming…

Sitting Pretty in Netti

Sitting pretty in Netti

 After my introduction to Heidi by my husband and a long string of PUG Heidi dress purchases.  My eye started to wander towards the fun and cheeky prints of the PUG Netti dress. 

 As I purchase all my dresses through the mail I swore I would never buy a dress other than the Heidi because I am not a fussy person.  I have worked retail and would not want to bother a store and their staff trying to return and exchange dresses in order to find one that…

Hello Ladies & Gems...

I recently took a trip after work down the mall to Forever 21 to find some retro/vintage-inspired looks. I was pleasantly surprised, and slightly horrified, all at the same time. I found some interesting items, made it alive out of…

How to become a Pinup Model – The Truth Behind the Red Lipstick

  I really don’t have an easy way to say any of this, and I feel that it is necessary to write this seeing that I like so many other pinup models have received a slew of emails asking this very question:

 How do I become a Pinup Model.


 Well I will answer this and more, as I break away all of the lights and magic and reveal the truth within.

  So like I said, there is no real easy way to say any of this, because I feel like I am about to tell a…

In Love With A Jeanie!

I fell in love with the Jeanie Lurex tops the moment I first saw them. Unfortunatley they were sold out for what felt like a lifetime until finally being restocked for one last time a few months ago. As soon as I got the email notification that they were back in stock, I snapped up the cream, pink and baby blue. The peice of my heart reserved for the Jeanie's finally at peace.…

My Excellent PUG Boutique Adventure with Laura, Masuimi, and Doris!

Hello. My name is Rima, and I am a scientist by trade. I also happen to be a PUG addict, as I own approximately seventy or so individual pieces, not including accessories. I live in a university town in northern California, which happens to be 356 miles away from the Pinup Girl Boutique in Burbank. That is the equivalent of about a tank and a half of gas and five and a half hours' worth of driving south on the hot, dusty, and incredibly dull Interstate 5. 

Needless to say, it isn't…

Sing, dance, act, perform?

I sing in a band. Its sort of a soul/blues/rock/punk type thing. I like to sing with a lot of power, and work it as much as possible on stage. Thing is, though, playing bars in the San Francisco bay area can be....well....sweaty! 

My question today for all you performers out there, or even just ladies who live in hot climate is: How the hell do you keep your hair from going flat, and make up from running down your face???

I can often do ok with the make up, as long as its good…

My NEW friend Heidi...

My NEW friend Heidi..


There was a long stretch of time since I had the privilege of owning a dress. 


A few years back I did have a decent collection of casual skirts that were the colour infusion in my closet full of black tops, cardigans and sweaters. The only accessory I would be found wearing were my brilliantly coloured hair flowers and that was me.


My mental space had not yet crossed the threshold, from being in a cute way to being more of…

When Backsides Attack!

Sometimes, my bottom is so ......voluptuous, I'll bend over and have a seam tear straight up the back. Its rather annoying, but also kind of hot. 

Anyone else suffer from dangerous curves? Its pretty awesome, huh?
