I was just in Las Vegas for a well needed vacation with some of my girlfriends and I made sure to pack all my favorite dresses. We got there Thursday morning and went to see PIN UP that evening. I figured it would be the perfect place and time to get all dolled up, pin-up style.
When I first bought my black Erin wiggle dress by Pinup Couture, I wore it all the time- it was my “go to” dress. As my dress collection continues to grow, I don’t have time for all of my dresses anymore. I decided last minute to bring my erin dress and I am pleased that I did.
( I know I look ridiculous haha but the dress looks good)
The Erin dress should be staple in every gals wardrobe. This dress is perfect for just about any occasion, depending on how you accessorize and do your hair and makeup. Its made of that pinup girl bengaline we all love, so it is fitted but comfortable because of the stretch. Mine is a medium, so I would say it fits true to size. I got my Erin dress at Rowena– they have a ton of other colors in stock right now too. And if you’re not in Edmonton, you can check out RetroGlam,com where you can snag one as well.
As you can see this dress is very low cut, which I actually quite enjoy; although I think I need to pin it down a bit, because my bra kept peeking out! I paired it with my comfy Dolce Vita wedges, red sparkle lux de ville mini gambler, and a skull and anchor necklace. I also added a thin black belt, ya know, just cause.
I was extra meticulous with my makeup and even added some glittery eyeliner- its Vegas, after all. And of course, I did some big victory rolls, as I so often do.
One of my girlfriends snapped this cheesy photo of me while we stopped to watch the Bellagio fountain, on the way to the Stratosphere where Pin Up was.
A little on PIN UP then, as that’s why I got all dressed up. It was okay…. it wasn’t what I was expecting. Our seats were fantastic- at the very front, next to the stage. The band and singer were amazing and the dancers were great. The costumes were good and the set was so-so. But the real disappointment was actually with Claire Sinclair. While she is cute as a button and made a good host, that was pretty much it. She had a small role in the whole production and didn’t even dance, she just shimmied and shook and played the part of simple pin-up girl. Otherwise, it was worth the $54 I spent- which is cheap for a Vegas show. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend going to see it while you are there, unless you have nothing better to so or are super into the rockabilly thing ( which is why I wanted to see it).
