Every now and again I pick up a dress on eBay, or a swap/sell FaceBook group that has been long discontinued by the manufacturer. Sometimes it’s an older style that I’ve never got around to purchasing, other times it’s a style that I didn’t necessarily want until after seeing it styled in real life. This dress certainly falls into the former category.
One question that always comes up in pinup and vintage fourms is “How to I keep my Pinup Style in winter?” While there is not definitive answer I’ve put together a guide based on my own winter routine. Staring of course with the undergarments and topping it off with accessories.
I love shapewear, there is nothing better the putting on a sleek piece of lingerie underneath my everyday clothes. It’s like a little secret that flaunts my curves and boots my self esteem. Sure, shapewear had some negative stigmas, but I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to believe them. Shapewear isn’t just for middle age women who want to hide the extra weight after their pregnancy and it most certainly doesn’t exist in boring basic colors. Here are some of my favorite pieces that are currently available.
Take a look at this beautiful evening gown. I’m absolutely in love.
