Sartorial Saturday–Mary Blair Meets Sailor Moon

The first time my daughters saw the new Pinup Girl Clothing Natalie swing dress in the Mary Blair planes border print, they said it looked like Sailor Moon. And if you’re not focusing on the print, they’re right! So I decided to run with that theme and style it in the most Sailor Moon way I could.

I went with red, white, and silver accessories, which included a red belt, a Splendette stack, a red wicker purse, and moon earrings (of course). I think the hair flower is an especially ingenious touch…it’s like I ran into Tuxedo Mask!

There’s nothing I don’t love about this dress!

I’d like to think that Mary Blair herself would approve of this styling…it’s a great tribute to an amazing female artist and a great show about women!

Sartorial Saturday–All Aboard!

This is the first of a very special series of “Sartorial Saturday” “Thanks PUG” posts, ones that feature the five new Pinup Girl Clothing Mary Blair dresses that they kindly sent me this month!

I’m starting off with the Mary Blair pink train print Natalie swing dress. And in honor of this very special occasion, I chose to take pictures at historic Union Station in St. Louis.

This is a new style of dress for me, and I love it. The top is very similar to the peasant tops I wear with so many of my skirts, with the addition of a fun tie. And the skirt is full enough to accommodate a petticoat, which is a must for me!

I also love the color combination on this dress. My one regret about buying the pink trains Aurora dress, (instead of getting a skirt), is that I was never able to pair it with my blue peasant top. But now I have that same look, and it’s just as amazing as I knew it would be!

The accessories practically chose themselves. Of course I had to go with my Deer Arrow train brooch, plus a Meteor Jewelry necklace, a Splendette stack, silver hoop earrings, and a blue handbag:

I love how bright and happy the whole outfit is!

My “Thanks PUG” series may not run on consecutive Saturdays (I have something else planned for next weekend’s Royal Wedding), but stay tuned to see how I style my other new dresses!
