If I had $800 to spend at Pinup Girl Clothing …

I have decided to do a little series of posts on what I’d buy if I had $800 to spend in certain places, ‘cos I’m shallow like that! Sadly, I don’t actually have $800 to randomly spend on unnecessary things, but I’m not going to let the facts get in the way of a good story!

So .. I’m kicking off with Pinup Girl Clothing because why not?  I love that site.  For the uninitiated, Pinup Girl Clothing, or PUG as it’s often known, is an Amercian-based website dedicated to reproduction retro and vintage clothing.  The quality’s great and the styles are to-die-for.  The pricing’s not too bad either and their international shipping service is second-to-none.  Check them out …

So without further adieu … here are my picks:

Pick number one – the Molly dress in yellow polkadot- $132 ($668 left)

MumptyStyle Molly yellow

I’d wear this with a red belt and red patent heels … kind of like these ones …

♥ Pick number two – Cutiepie Mary Jane in red patent – $56 ($612 left)

MumptyStyle red patent Mary JanesThese are practical and cute – the heels are high enough to make your legs look good, yet the front strap makes them comfortable and easy to wear.

♥ Pick number three – Jenny gathered full skirt in black sateen – $98 ($514 left)

These skirts are an excellent basic for any pinup wardrobe.  You can team them with little fitted tops like they have above, or a peasant top – anything really.  And they look great with a boofy petticoat underneath too!

♥ Pick number four – Jenny dress in Snow White print – $142 ($372 left)

MumptyStyle Jenny Snow White

I love these prints … they’re such fun, and a dress is always easy to wear and looks so well “put together.”  If it was a bit on the cold side, I’d wear it with this lemon cropped cardigan (same as the one in pick number seven), which I already have so I don’t have to include it in my $800!

♥ Pick number five – Aurora dress in Dancing Horses print – $144  ($228 left)

MumptyStyle PUG Aurora Dancing HorsesAs you can probably tell, I’m a sucker for dresses and the border on this dress is just gorgeous.  I’d wear it with these shoes (pick number six) and this cropped cardigan (pick number seven.)

♥ Pick number six – satin T-strap CutiePie in pink satin – $58 ($170 left)

MumptyStyle PUG T-strap CutiePieThese are just too cute … probably not entirely practical, but who cares – they’re pretty!

♥ Pick number seven – cropped cardigan in pale magenta – $18 ($152 left)MumtpyStyle PUG Crop cardigan

As I said, I already have this cardy – in fact I have it in black, red, mint and lemon.  They’re the perfect length for a shorty like me and look great with PUG dresses.

♥ Pick number eight – round neck cardigan in black and white polkadot – $27 ($125 left)
MumptyStyle PUG Black Polkadot cardyThis is gorgeous … I might even wear it with my “pick number one” – the yellow Molly dress.  I love polka dots, so this was always gonna work for me!

♥ Pick number nine – Little Skulls cardigan in red – $50 ($75 left)

MumptyStyle PUG red skull cardy

This is beautiful – I’d wear it with some black capris or a pencil skirt and some black patent heels.

♥ Pick number ten – Heidi dess in red vintage Spanish Fan print – on sale for $68.60 ($6.40 left)

MumptyStyle PUG Spanish FanI love this dress … the little sleeve is really flattering and having a sleeve means you can wear it to work without a cardy.  Perfect!

And that leaves just $6.40!!!

What would you purchase at PUG if you had $800?

Enjoy …
