Get ready to stand out in a crowd!! The Pop-Art-Princess skirt from Pigtails and Piratesembodies 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!!
Yasmina Greco – Upcycled Classics Polaroid Camera
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.
Yasmina Greco – Pinup El Gato Gomez Painting
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!!
Sharing my Christmas Day pinup rockabilly outfit (polkadot skirt and Pinup Girl Clothing green Doris top) my sidekick Luna has had enough holiday cheer and needs her nap. Also I am sharing my Christmas Eve outfit and I am wearing the light-up Unique Vintage Christmas Tree skirt and Steady Clothing ruby red Sophia top, paired with my favorite Miss L. Fire shows) Below is a collage of all my holiday outfits for December featuring Heart of Haute, Pigtails and Pirates, Pinup Girl Clothing and Hell Bunny Christmas jumpers)
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 .
