We all know Christmas is less than a month away but there is still time to find your perfect Christmas looks for the parties, shopping, and social events on your calendars!! This year there are so many great Pinup outfits from dresses to separates and even casual attire available. Many of my readers are newbies when it comes to Pinup and many are long time devotees but, I have heard from so many of you that you are not finding the perfect outfits for the holiday season so I have put together this guide I am calling Novelty Christmas Pinup Wear in the hopes it helps out all my Pinup friends and even those who have a Pinup in their life and are looking for perfect gifts!!
Christmas Day is tomorrow!! This has been such a busy, fast moving month and I am so glad I was able to do my annual (ok my 2nd year) 12 Days of Christmas Pinup Fashions for you all. Hands down themed shoots are my favorite and this year brought so many collaborations from so many different brands, it was so much fun getting to work with them all. Featured in my 12 Days of Christmas are outfits by: Pigtails and Pirates, Pinup Girl Clothing, Lindy Bop, Lady V of London, Lady Voluptuous. Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and that you weren’t too naughty and get the presents you’ve been hoping for!!
Get ready to stand out in a crowd!! The Pop-Art-Princess skirt from Pigtails and Pirates embodies the 1950s pop art movement with imagery from advertisements, comic books, and the kitschy elements of cultural life. When I first saw this skirt all I could think was Andy Warhol and Roy Liechtenstein’s influence are all here in this one fabulous skirt…. Must have it!!
As many of you know I am no stranger to color…. The brighter and bolder the better. Wearing bright and colorful outfits gives me so much energy and I feel so vibrant and full of life!! I was so excited to receive this fabulous skirt and could not wait to do a photoshoot in it. I knew I wanted to have a vintage Polaroid camera (thank you my hubby Gary) as my prop and thought Andy Warhol would have liked that too and then we had this amazing vintage bright yellow Sculptura Donut Phone by Western Electric Company that would be too much fun to use as a prop.
In these pictures taken by my very talented hubby Gary, I am wearing the skirt in an Australian 16 and find it fits my waist nicely and lies perfectly against my curvy hips. I paired it with my simple yet sexy white Doris top from Pinup Girl Clothing and a teal green belt. The skirt does accommodate a light petticoat.
The pattern pops so much and the colors are brilliant. Our set included my hubby’s handy work on the wall clock and our specially painted Godzilla painting from El Gato Gomez. It was great fun shooting the skirt with our cool props. I hope you reach out to Laura; owner of Pigtails and Pirates and not only see what beautiful dresses and outfits she makes but you can also ask her about custom orders too (she makes my dresses to fit me with the top half larger in size to the waist/skirt). Laura is so creative with her color combos and fabrics. Right now on the Pigtails and Pirates website is a delicious looking Sushi print dress, Beauty and the Beast stunner and so much more, I can’t wait to hear which your favorites are!!
Merry Christmas to you all!! Hoping you are spending the day with family and loved ones having lots of smiles, laughs and making merry memories….. and enjoying yummy foods and treats too!!

I can’t believe how quickly December is flying by!! When I first set out to do a ’12 Days of Pinup Christmas’ theme, truth be told, I wasn’t quite sure what I would be sharing for 12 days with you all but, turns out my hubby Gary and I did a pretty good job at planning out the photo shoots and I can’t believe how many pretty holiday outfits I’ve received to share with you all in my posts. We were able to find a fabulous 1950s Philco Predicta TV that works and is now part of our living room!! Also, our tabletop vintage aluminum Christmas tree is never too far this time of year as we love vintage Christmas and these elements add so much mid-century modern charm. Here are the latest pics from my 12 days theme featuring lovely outfits from Pigtails and Pirates, Heart of Haute, Hell Bunny and The Oblong Box Shop . You can see more and keep up with me on Instagram and Facebook
