When I first saw that Pinup Girl Clothing was going to make a pink version of the Mary Blair trains Jenny skirt that I love, I was really excited. And then I was a little disappointed, because practical person that I am, I realized that I probably couldn’t justify spending money on a skirt that was so similar to one I already owned.
Enter the Aurora dress (complete with pockets!):
I’ve thought about buying this style of dress in a different pattern in the past, but I never felt compelled enough by any specific pattern to go through with it. This pattern (and gorgeous color!), however, was beyond compelling, and it even came out sooner than I was expecting!
Even though I hadn’t worn an Aurora dress in the past, I was familiar with the size chart, so I was a little surprised to see that it had been updated for this print, and I would have to size up. And honestly, I think I would have been fine in my usual, size but I didn’t feel like exchanging it, so I’ll either deal with the spots where’s it’s big (although the belt takes care of most of that), or have it tailored. Even with the size being off, though, I really love this dress. The color is amazing, the print is (of course) fabulous, and I love the neckline. I am a little undecided about the black belt…I think swapping it out with a white belt might make it look a bit better for spring and summer. The black does go well with my favorite heels, though!
As is always the case with Pinup Girl, this is a great addition to my wardrobe!
