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)
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)
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)
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)
♥ Pick number six – satin T-strap CutiePie in pink satin – $58 ($170 left)
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)
This 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)
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)
And that leaves just $6.40!!!
What would you purchase at PUG if you had $800?
