Review - Military Secretary Dress in Tan and Green by Pinup Couture

I wanted to share with you all my review on the Military Secretary Dress in Tan and Green by Pinup Couture. This is my first piece of PUG clothing and I must say 5 star rating all the way *****!

I originally bought this dress to wear for a Halloween outfit however due to sickness I never made it to a Halloween party in the end. I finally decided to wear this dress to a burlesque show last weekend. I though I'd put together a slight 40's kind of style. The dress, natural coloured fishnet tights, tan court shoes, a tweed style jacket, scarf, suede gloves, frilly leopard print umbrella and of course red lippy!

So half way though the burlesque show during the interval the stage kitty came up to me and gave me a blue card and said not to be alarmed but I would need this for the second half of the show! Of course I was worried as they comedy act had already dragged my other half on stage during the night so I was convinced I was going to get the same treatment. In actual fact they asked everyone to the stage with a blue card as these people are in the final for the best dressed competition! I was stunned...I didn;t even know there was a best dressed competition running!! So I made my way to the stage. The audience were asked to give the biggest cheer for the person they thought should win and when they called my name the place roared! I was so shocked! I won! I've never won anything like that! I've recently lost 12lbs and it was a massive boost to think what I'm doing is working and was so pleased I had gone for this outfit! PUG clothing really does make heads turn and give you a massive confidence boost!         

I has made a few minor changes to it before wearing it out! I had the buttons sewn on a bit tighter and I has the middle sewn up a bit as my chest was way too on show! Thats the one thing I will say....its a very chest out dress and even with the front sewn up as much as possible its still pretty out there! Brilliant outfit though and I cant wait to own more PUG clothing!

I would love to hear what you think and if you too love wearing this dress! See my pics below! They are not the best as they were taken at the end of the night with flat hair etc! Didn't even think to take good photos at the beginning!!! Lesson learnt! But gives you the idea!! :) xx

Bullet or Cone Bras for beginners?
