Bright, happy, elegant, effortless, and colorful are all words I think of when I where this dress the Pinup Couture Jenny Dress in Orange Border Print and I am so happy I snapped it up when it was restocked at Pinup Girl Clothing. The print is amazing, one of the best novelty prints I have ever seen. Reminds me of 1950s Florida and I love that the oranges range in colors of yellow to bright orange and go from small to bigger on the hanging branches.
In these pictures that my wonderful hubby who does amazing things with vintage cameras over at Upcycled Classics snapped of me, I have my Pinup Couture Wicker Baguette Purse in lime green and added a simple yellow cardigan. I felt glamorous and chic, like I was on the Riviera. We snapped some pics on the front porch with fluffy puppy Luna then headed to a lovely outdoor antique and collectible show. I was comfortable and relaxed and received so many compliments.
The Jenny dress is one of my wardrobe staples and I don’t have nearly enough!! When you are a full-busted gal like myself it is very hard to find dresses that fit, have style, and have such great novelty prints and that is why the Jenny is a staple for me. I always feel put together and effortless. The dress is styled after the 1960s sundresses. The first thing you notice when you step into the dress is that the bodice is lined, boned, and fused. The lovely orange colored straps are adjustable so you can show as much or as little of your curves as you are comfortable with. Because of the adjustable straps and boning, the dress has incredible structure and will flatter a range of bust sizes, even those of us blessed with full-bust lines can comfortably wear this gorgeous dress and feel very put together and chic. The skirt on the Pinup Couture Jenny Dress in Orange Border Print is much like the Jenny skirts, a very full circle skirt and the material is a luxurious sateen that holds pleats and shape incredibly and this version even has pockets!! Zips nicely up the back and nips in your waist. Also, this one comes with a matching orange belt and that adds just the right amount of flair. Be prepared for lots of compliments!!
I am wearing the Jenny Dress in Orange Border Print in a 2XL (all my Jenny dresses are 2XL) and this size accommodates my full bust, yes, it is very roomy in the waist as I take XL in Jenny skirts but I love having the option of adding a belt to take in some of the excess fabric if I prefer, depending on how much waist definition I want that day.
Hope you all are with loved ones and friends today enjoying yummy foods, lots and lots of laughter and sharing all that you are thankful for. Today is the second Thanksgiving in our house and the sun is shining outside, our puppy dog Luna woke up happy and excited and soon our bird will be in the oven and the delicious smell of Thanksgiving will be wafting through our house… hmmmm, maybe Luna knows this? Ha!
The past few months have been out-of-this-world amazing for us. We are both healthy and wakeup each morning with a zest for life. Ok, the 4 shot espresso hubby brings me in bed helps 🙂 I am thankful for my hubby!! I am thankful that my husband and I are more in love than ever, we celebrated 15years of marriage in September and I am grateful for sharing my life with him, all the love and laughter we share each and everyday!! We worked very hard to have been able to settle in gorgeous California wine country and our house couldn’t be anymore perfect, our orange tree out front already has oranges!! My husband continues to expand his vintage camera business and it is so rewarding when his customers write him and share how much joy and fun they have using his amazing UpcycledClassics cameras and how many people give his cameras as gifts all over the world. His vision was to bring back the joy of shooting with Polaroid cameras and with his incredible color combos, these cameras really are dynamite!! I am so thankful for the opportunities I have had this year. If you are a follower of my blog you might recall I made a change to my wardrobe and styling where I started dressing in vintage/vintage inspired clothing and incorporating a Pinup Girl style. I have never felt as beautiful and feminine as I do these days. Talk about a confidence boost!! I have also been featured in magazines and websites modeling….. yes, modeling! Never in a million years would I have thought I’d be a model 🙂 I have lots of exciting projects coming out in 2016 so stay tuned for details. But, I am grateful and thankful for the opportunities that are coming my way and my dream is to be a successful motivational public speaker so this platform is helping with exposure and getting to share my message. Spiritually, I am in the best place. I had some situations and experiences this year and I am a new person spiritually. I am so thankful!! I am also thankful that my twin sister, nieces and family all have a close relationship, not a single day goes by where we don’t talk or text. I am thankful to all my blog and social media friends, your support is incredible!! We are very blessed and fortunate for all the love, material possessions, and having such amazing people in our lives.
I did a recent photoshoot that was Christmas themed, I will start sharing pics on my blog here in December, just a couple days away, and social media Instagram and Twitter a Christmas pic a week so stay tuned.
A couple pics I snapped yesterday of the vineyards, leaves are glorious and full of Fall colors!! In a few days however the leaves will have dropped and the vines will be sticks…..until late May when they start to bloom again.
