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…Continue
Time is so very precious. Why does it fly by so quickly? Why do the great times in life go by even quicker? Oh well, stuff happens. And a few weeks ago I had a glorious holiday in New Orleans. This is the stuff that dreams are made of. A very long time ago my spouse and I decided that going on vacations are a very top priority for us in our lives. We have so many interests. And we have so many things that we love. A few months ago we decided that we had to go to New Orleans. Quite a few of…Continue
I started writing this blog about a week before Christmas. But I was just too busy to finish it. It is now Christmas night and the main part of my Christmas activities are over. Since one of the best things about Christmas is connecting with friends and family, I think that today is the day to post this.
Usually my blog posts are prompted because I have had some interesting adventures while wearing my PUG clothing. But not this time. This post is prompted by a comment that Tahitia…Continue
Hello everybody! I hope that your November is progressing well. The holidays are coming upon us so very fast. Will I be ready on time? Will I get some chances to show off some of my new PUG clothing during the holidays? Will we get snow here in Los Angeles for Christmas? I do know the answers to some of those questions. And there is one other thing that I know. I will take the chance to go out for afternoon whenever I get the chance!
I used to call my Flickr page "Aoife Takes Tea".…Continue
Once again, I have decided that I might as well do some more self promotion and do another blog post. I have nothing to promote really. But I just like to share with my peers. And my important peers are PUGsters. So here goes.
There is no rhyme or reason to when I shop. I do always like to look for a bargain. So when PUG's website has a special sale I usually try to take advantage of it and buy myself a piece of two. Sometimes, I am buying for a special occasion. Sometimes I am buying…Continue
Well, yesterday I had my birthday. And the honest truth is that I turned sixty years old. I am not fooling. I guess that a combination of good genes and lots of hard work have kept me looking pretty good. I have not had any "work" done. But I do "work out" on an almost daily basis. My skin care regimen is pretty basic. I try to follow the mantra "moisturize, moisturize, moisturize". I have been primarily a vegetarian for more than 40 years. I have a profession that I love. I always try to…Continue
Sometimes life gives you little opportunities that you just have to take advantage of. I guess that most of you already know that when Sarah Silverman was at the Emmy Awards a couple of weeks ago she wore a Vamp Dress in black. Sarah can be hilariously funny. She is very attractive. And she is quite intelligent. Those are all qualities that I try to demonstrate in my daily life. So that just got me to thinking. And I came up with an idea. I would wear some of my vamp pieces and similar items…Continue
Yes, I just decided to join the dark side and pretend I am a spammer. It is still just little old me. But I thought that I would have a bit of fun. For the next little while I am using as my profile pic a photo of me wearing one of my salwar kameez's, the traditional South Asian pantsuit.
Do you want sportswear? Do you want to watch football games? Well, you have come to the wrong place! Do you want me to block up the discussion board with stupid inanities? Well, you won't get that…Continue
Sorry about the long title for this post. But I wanted to give you a taste of what this will be about. So, first things first. I knew that I was going to have three days and nights completely to myself this past weekend. I dress vintage or repro vintage as much as humanly possible. I love my Pin Up Girl Clothing so much. It is so flattering. It makes me feel so wonderful when I wear it. So I decided that I would wear nothing but PUG during my adventures.
I made my weekend a…Continue
Night five was to be the big blowout! It did not exactly work out that way. But it turned out very well indeed. So I had attempted to organize a Meet Up on Saturday July 13th. We were to meet at the Boutique. Then there would be shopping and hanging out for an hour or two. Next it was to be off to a restaurant for dinner. And then finally there would be attendance at a burlesque performance. That was the plan.
Chacha Billy and I were carpooling from the Eastside of LA. We left at…Continue
So the third and fourth nights of my Fun Filled Week were about the ballet. Yep, you heard it right, the ballet. I don't want to sound too snobbish or anything like that. But I love to dance and I love to see dance performances. The American Ballet Theatre was in Los Angeles for a few performances. They had two different programs, a selection of three short ballets and then a performance of Le Corsaire. It almost goes without saying, but the dancing was incredible. And the dancers were…Continue
Life rarely presents me with five nights/days in a row of getting to look my best and doing fun, out and about activities. But about a week ago I had that opportunity. And I took full advantage of it. If you don't mind I will take full advantage here to do a bit of show and tell.
It all started on a Tuesday. I had nothing specific planned. But I knew that I wanted to do something. In fact, I got dressed and got in my car before I knew where I was heading. It was a fairly warm…Continue
Well dolls, I think that it is time for me to do another blog post. I have had some fun activities recently which I thought I might share. And I particularly am eager to share some of these activities because they feature my friend Double O Jenn who has just returned to the PUG Style sisterhood.
As I have written about before, joining PUG Style has provided me with a new wonderful group of friends, women who are beautiful, intelligent and very interesting. One of those friends that I…Continue
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…Continue
Well there are some things that I have been wanting to post and I think that posting it to my blog is the best way to get the job done. I guess that first I will start with a little background. And for those of you who don't know me, I will tell you the big thing first, I am transgendered. Yep, that means I was born as a male and I live as a male most of the time. But I have a very strong feminine aspect to my makeup (and I am not talking cosmetics here). I have not had any of "the surgery"…Continue
I guess that I am going to give you the long detailed version of this event and how it happened. The original genesis of this was when Christina Sangre posted to the Ladies of Los Angeles group about scheduling a Meet Up. Due to her busy life, she was not able to put anything together as she had hoped. But I am sure that she will make something happen in the future and I want to thank her for bringing us all together. So I decided that it might be fun to do a small Meet Up. Well, a…Continue
OI have had a busy and fun start to my new year and so I thought that I might do a little post to update you about some of my activities. And I have a few pics to share.
Let me start off with my trip to London. I have been fortunate to make regular visits to London, usually during the month of January for a round of intense theatre activities, lots of museum visiting and in general loads of fun stuff. I won't go into all of my activities but I will mention some things that have to do…Continue
I am not really a blogger. I don't mind telling people about my adventures. And I absolutely LOVE to talk, especially one to one. But I just have a few things to say and this may be as good a place as any to say it. So here goes...
First of all, I love the discussions here on PUG Style. This is such a friendly, supportive environment in which all of us PUGsters get to share. I love reading all of the posts. I love the ideas, the suggestions, the photos, the interplay. And one of my…Continue
