Have any of you ladies wanted to see a new you when you look in the mirror? Do you see the pin-up / vintage / retro / pug look as a chance to transform yourself? Or is it just me? I see potential when I look in the mirror, and I think clothes like those made by PUG help to bring out that potential. Even when I feel in a rut.
Classic movies make me feel good.
Pin-ups make me feel good.
Retro / repro / pug etc. clothing makes me feel good.
As does the idea of how much better I'll feel once I get the hang of hair & make up (lol).
I feel happy.
But PUG clothing helps me feel finished.
Like what I wear matches who I am & how I feel like.
Like never before.
Like a breath of fresh air.
Like the first peeks out of a cocoon.
Like the first slivers of light you see when you feel you're finally coming out of your shell.
(Does anyone understand this or see where I'm coming from or am I just rambling here? lol.)
Definetly know what you mean. I feel like a different person when I put my PUG clothes on! I put on my dress, do my hair and make up especially on days when its gloomy outside, it just makes me feel better. I especially love the look on my husbands face when he walks in the door from work, he says "I never know what your going to look like when I come home" he loves it! I just got the pink atomic print Doris skirt and wore it with the white Doris top for Easter and my husband could not stop complimenting me!
I feel the same way!
I feel the same way. I work in Nursing (Second shift at that) so I'm in scrubs constantly on my work days, and usually when I get home I'm so beat down all I want to do is sleep. But when I get a day off, and I'm going out to do some shopping or out for a date or even to do something fun with my family, I'm like this other person, who doesn't look like she spends her evenings doing heavy lifting or any other amount of unsavory tasks that are necessary it actually makes me feel like a woman again, instead of this worn out sack of bones. Not to mention the amount of compliments I get wherever I go for looking so unusual.
I know exactly where you're coming from SaBreena, and I couldn't have said any of that better myself.
I never get tired of reading about women falling in love with the pinup look and life and I'm so happy that you're a part of our community :)
