Announcing … The Pinup Platoon

MumptyStyle The Pinup Platoon

Now as most of my readers will know, the highly-coveted title of Miss Pinup NZ is up for grabs again in April.

Miss Victory Violet has done a fantastic job during her reign, and of course she retains the title of Miss Pinup NZ 2014. However, there is a new bevy of beauties awaiting to compete for the 2015 title, and one lucky and talented lady will be crowned on the 11th of April at The Very Vintage Day Out (Alexandra Park Raceway, Greenlane, Auckland.)

Mumpty has been fortunate enough to have secured interviews with all ten fabulous finalists, so I am declaring March the month of The Pinup Platoon … wahooo!

Check back each day because the interviews will reveal things you never knew about the finalists and there’ll even be some teasers about what to expect from them on the big day!  There will also be other little treats interspersed between the interviews because of course March has 31 days, and there are only ten finalists!  Later in the month there will be an interview with Miss Pinup NZ 2014, Miss Victory Violet herself.

And it’s not just all about the Pinups … there’s something in it for you readers too!
You’ll notice the gorgeous Pinup Platoon image of Miss Victory Violet up there says that The Pinup Platoon is in association with Erstwilder.  How exciting is that?!

MumptyStyle Erswilder logoErstwilder is a Melbourne-based company making big waves in the pinup and rockabilly scene lately.  Their stunning brooches, earrings and necklaces are quirky and fabulous and can be found accessorising many a stylish pinup these days.  All pieces are limited edition;  lovingly made out of layered resin and designed by a team of Australian illustrators and designers.  Just so you know … this one is my current favourite, but tomorrow could well be different!
