Black Friday was a week ago. Like many PUG (Pin Up Girl clothing) fanatic I was eagerly waiting for this sale ! 

I was a little disappointed that some articles of my wishlist (which is far too long) weren't eligible for the coupon (*cough*vamp top) but many of them were so I snatched as many as I could ! 
I'm extremely happy with everything I got but unfortunately the long desired Mon Cheri mauve dress was too small for me. If someone's interested in buying it please contact me :).
Everything I got is in size Small with the exception of Deadly Dames Victorian rose pencil skirt & Deadly Dames red capris which are Medium.
Without further ado... behold my massive black Friday PUG haul :D! 
 
The print designed by the talented Micheline Pitt is absolutely gorgeous ! The little cartoony pin up girls are extra cute & I adore the lace at the bottom of the skirt. I love the white front & the modest neckline which makes it a dress suitable for any summery event. The fabric has a nice weight to it, feels a little stiff but I assume it's because it's new & hasn't been worn/washed yet :). My boyfriend (who takes the pics) loves it :D !

The Evelyn has found its way to my heart as soon as I saw it... I love the "DeeDee" feel with the deeper cleavage design. I find the pleated bodice with the squarish neckline super flattering. The white/yellow & black color scheme looks fantastic. It's not plain yellow & black there are shades of gold & grey in it too. I feel so very Betty Draper in it :). 
Here's a little "fun" pose with the matching bolero & some cheap cateye sunglasses I got from Asos.
***
This dress makes me feel so classy. The color is the most striking shade of royal blue I've ever seen ! It's an outstanding color & the sheen of the satiny fabric makes it even more beautiful. The fabric has a nice & heavy, luxurious feel. It's on the warm side which makes it a great dress for cooler months formal events. The shawl collar is very elegant. I wished the sleeves had a slightly tighter fit on me but it's just a tiny detail. This dress is definitely high class & not for everyday :)
***
I'm a little worried the picture doesn't do justice to the mint luscious at all. I'm more than delighted about it ! I LOVE everything about it ! It's the comfiest dress I've ever own & that matters a lot to me because finding clothes that have comfort AND cuteness for everyday life is sometimes kind of a challenge. Out of the 4 dresses I got, this is probably the one I'll be wearing the most because it feels like wearing a night gown & boy do I like staying in my PJs sometimes :p ! The fabric is a heavy extra SOFT cotton jersey that's perfectly opaque & delightful on the skin. The mint color is super cute & much brighter than on my pic. The mermaid embroidery is very well made & pretty. I want to get the navy one now :p !

Doris skirt in atomic turquoise & Deadly Dames dolly top in white
The atomic turquoise doris (like the black one I already own) is nothing more that the perfect full skirt. You see I'm a little of a swing skirt fiend & wearing this one makes me feel like I just stepped out of the 1950's & I'm waiting for my DeLorean ride back :p ! This skirt is insanely bright & the designs are super vintage novelty print looking ! It has bright coral, yellow & purple in it which makes this skirt eligible to go with any of previously named colored top. 
The Deadly Dames Dolly top in white is a cute & versatile top for casual days. I love the frilly bits on the front along with the contrasting black buttons & slightly puff sleeves. The fabric is a medium/heavy weight cotton jersey that is super soft. It's better to wear a flesh or white bra under this (which I don't have yet). Will go with pretty much any skirt I own :).
***
I'm so happy I "forced" myself to get this Victorian rose pencil skirt ! I always feel a little intimidated by pencil skirts because I'm scared of loosing my ease of movement, walking silly & feel like I'm wearing a girdle. Because this has no stretch I'm glad I size up & M is definitely the right size for my hips & full derriere :). The color & design is so much more vibrant than on the website's pic... it's beautiful, romantic & dainty.I love that it's fully lined with a soft fabric & the quality feel of cotton sateen. 
First time I tried the Doris top on in a Montreal retro clothing shop, I was super disappointed it didn't work as I hoped. The fit was great from the front BUT I had a massive amount of "excess" fabric wrinkling at the back just under the collar. Because it was tight enough everywhere else I assumed it was badly designed. Because I loved the shirt on everybody but me I decided to give it another go with the black Friday sale so that I didn't spent too much on it if it didn't work. Got the pink because every girl needs a pink top & it would match the Victorian rose skirt I was eyeing. When I tried it on I had the same problem as the first time at the beginning. I felt sad... but after few minutes of "moving" in it it started to fit good... & then GREAT ! I am SO happy I gave it another shot ! It's the sexiest shirt I've ever own boy look at that cleavage ! :p Planning on getting more !
here's a close up of the Doris top in pink 
***
This is the last outfit I'm going to show you & I couldn't be happier about these items. I'm by no mean a pant girl. When I'm not wearing a dress or a skirt, I'm most likely to be found in leggings or sweatpants if at home LOL. Believe it or not, I'm in love with the deadly dames red capris ! Not only these are comfier than I thought (thanks that I got a M & these have a good amount of stretch)but they look HOT ! by hot I mean Cry Baby's Tracy Lord's Wanda HOT :p !I love the back zipper makes my derriere look A-to the-MAZING ! Love the high waist & the loops. The fabric is great quality bengaline that's not scratchy. I'm planning on getting the black one !
The psychobilly halter top looks like it was meant to be worn with the capris & that's a good thing because I bought them for that purpose :). LOOVE the little collar (which cannot be seen well because of my hair)& the skull brooch ! It gives a nice cleavage & looks totally badass ! I'll be getting the white psychobilly halter dress as soon as I can :p !
Having a little fun with posing :)
Close up view of the top & its brooch :)

Hope you enjoyed ! ^_^
Think I'm a PUG addict for life now :p !

As I said last night...you look divine in EVERYTHING! My fav is the pink doris and rose print skirt. Wondering why I never bought the pink doris myself now :)

Comment by Brandi Shuey on December 1, 2012 at 5:01am

You make everything look amazing! The Ginger in pinup print is really cute. I love the pairing of the pink Doris top with the victorian rose skirt. AND the Deadly Dames psychobilly halter & red capris... that outfit is bomb! ;) I had to scroll right back up and look at that one again. lol That's what I'd imagine Sandy from Grease wearing after her make over :D

I got the Amanda dress in black and blue, the Doris skirt in atomic pink print and the Netti dress in squirrel print. I also bought the olive green diner dress but I ordered that from the heartbreaker website as the pinup girl clothing site was out of my size. I'll take pictures when it all comes in! Early Christmas for me! :D

Comment by Viola Von Kitten on December 1, 2012 at 6:47pm

Sweet !!! I love the pink atomic too ! it's a really cute color ! Can't wait to see the Amanda ^_^
