Pinup Girl Clothing is at it again- making rockabilly and pinup dolls drool and break the bank for the amazing prints and cuts they put out this season. I have a hard time talking myself out of buying something from Pinup Girl- the very fact that it it made in the states, is a big seller for me; its good quality, the designs are so unique, and well, I am lucky enough to get a discount on it at the moment, so I feel like I need to stockpile ( how awful is that?!).
I have to say I have yet to regret any Pinup Girl purchase to date, no matter how much it cost ( even with a discount, some items are still pricey). My wee apartment closet can’t take much more, but still I try to stuff more in her…come on little closet, we have got to work together, so we can both have beautiful things.
The Mermaid Mexican circle skirt is my latest Pinup Girl purchase… I couldn’t help myself- it is gorgeous! Stephanie Buscema teamed up with Pinup Girl Clothing to produce this unique, exclusive design, which is just out of this world! This skirt was so much fun to wear and I got a ton of complements on it. I wore it to work, because I couldn’t wait to wear it. In fact, I felt so gosh darn pretty, I told my boyfriend we had to go out after work, so all my effort wouldn’t go to waste.
I paired it with a fabulous bustier top from Fables by Barrie. I usually hate strapless shirts and dresses, but the construction of this top is fantastic- it fit amazing and i felt comfortable and secure in it. Worth every single penny! All the girls at the shop scooped one up, so if you fancy one, i’d get in there right away, so as not to miss out!
I am also wearing a lovely vintage necklace, which matches nicely with the blue on the skirt, and black heels. My hair was so cooperative that morning as well, so victory rolls were in order to complete the look.
My waist is 29″ and I got a medium in the skirt. It doesn’t close with a zipper, rather it has buttons in front, which are then hidden with the ‘wrap’ part of the skirt. The construction is rather interesting, and on the pinup girl website, they say they designed it after traditional Mexican circle skirts. Their website also suggests to size down if you are in between sizes, simply because the size is semi adjustable due to the button closure.
My Fables top is a medium, which fit great. My bust is 36″, however another girl with a 38″ bust from the shop, could also wear a medium.
Both pieces are from Rowena. The skirt will be on the RetroGlam.com site, but the top can only be found in store ( but you can order over the phone if you can’t get into the shop)
Sorry for the poor quality photos, I was just so excited, I wanted to share right away
