Sartorial Saturday–Thanks PUG!

Here’s one more look at the new dresses that Pinup Girl Clothing recently added to their Magic of Mary Blair collection and kindly sent to me. Out of the five dresses, there are three different styles in four-ish prints (the two plane prints are so different, I’m not sure how to count them!). Two of the styles (the Natalie Swing and the Audrey), were new additions to my wardrobe, and I love having some new options! If you asked me to pick a favorite, I don’t think I could, but I will say I love the way the Harley dress fits, and I also love having the clown print in my closet, because I didn’t have that one in any form before.

With the exception of the commuters print, I think I now own at least one version of each Mary Blair print that PUG has released. They are definitely some of my favorite items, and I love how cheerful I feel when I’m wearing any one of them! Thanks PUG, for making my closet a happier place!!!

Sartorial Saturday…On a Tuesday–Red, White, and Blue

Since tomorrow is Independence Day in the U.S., I thought I’d share a few ideas for dressing for the Fourth of July. You’ll notice Pinup Girl Clothing’s Mary Blair plane print makes an appearance three different ways…as a Harley dress, a Natalie swing dress, and a Doris skirt. The red, white, and blue of the print is perfect for Independence Day fashion! So are PUG’s red Harley top, blue sky harlequin skirt, and red, white, and blue Amanda dress!

Here are some of my favorite ways to accessorize with red, white, and blue, as well:

What’s your favorite way to wear red, white, and blue?

Sartorial Saturday–Taking Flight

I was very excited to find the Mary Blair planes print Harley dress in the box Pinup Girl Clothing sent me last month. I only own one other Harley dress, and because it was a clearance item, I had to buy a size larger than I normally wear, so it doesn’t fit quite right, which doesn’t stop me from wearing, but does limit how I can wear it. This dress, however, fits like a glove, and I love it!

I thought it would be fun to do another special photo shoot, so we went to beautiful Tower Grove Park in St. Louis, and finished up just before a storm rolled in!

I love how easy it to accessorize this dress…I went with green accents this time, but I could have easily done red or blue as well!

This is a great summer dress, and I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of it. Come fall, I can just throw on my bolero to ward off the chill!

Winter Blues

When the winter blues include a dress from Pinup Girl Clothing and jewelry from Meteor Jewelry Co., I don’t mind them at all!

I’ve been working on finding ways to make my Pinup Girl items work for the colder months. Ironically, my newest dress, which I purchased during their Boxing Day sale, is one of the easiest items I have to winterize! It might be a halter dress, but with a shrug over top, it’s very easy to wear this time of year, and it has some nice, cool, wintry colors, so it works very well. Plus, I finally completed my blue Starlite collection from Meteor Jewelry with the bracelet…I can’t tell you how much I love the style of these pieces, and how well made they are!
