What’s a better way to understand the pin-up community than from the pin-ups themselves!? I have been able to contact a few of my favorite girls for an online interview. I will be conducting write-ups on the women and men who are interested in all things mid-century. I’ll also be doing a few local bloggers!
This project is all about getting to know the faces behind the fashion, and those who love the vintage lifestyle. I’ll be tackling down issues such as body confidence, social judgement, and the importance of fashion. I’ll be posting twice a month so watch out for the upcoming features! If you are interested, or have any suggestions please feel free to contact me! I’m open to anyone who would like to join, pin-up or not.
Let’s do this!
I began a new job this week, and it wasn’t like my former job where the dress code was casual. I had to now shift into a corporate-chic look. But, I still want to be pin-up!!! (whines.)
So, here are my alternatives to keeping it corporate, yet pin-up all at the same time.
I have several tattoos which are all mostly visible. I work as a sales representative for a high-end company, so when meeting with certain clients tattoos can be a no-no. Ways I cover up my tattoos are easy. Opting for long sleeve polos and dresses, and going to leggings and dark jeans help cover both my arm and leg tattoos. Keeping it pin-up can be hard, since corporate attire basically screams uniform in a pant-suit. So I like keeping the prints like polka-dots or the sailor top. And structures like the black pencil skirt and pumps. I also love how having basic pieces lets me mix and match. And I never forget my red lipstick!
