Pin-up Parade

Pin up

When I heard about the theme of the W4W Fair I was more than excited. I knew that it wasn't going to be a problem for me to come up with a retro, pin-up inspired look, as I've tried it many times before (my favourite is this one here). The only problem was weather-related, as pin-ups and cold days don't really go hand in hand. So I decided to go completely old school and wear a pair of authentic vintage stockings with suspenders. Well let me tell you... I don't know how women in those times managed to get everything done and look impeccable at the same time. I took me waaay to long to get my hair done and to put on those damn stockings; I even ruined my manicure while doing that, so I had to redo it. Therefore my admiration for these women reached a whole new level. All in all, I know my look is a bit too up-and-up for a pin-up girl, but that's me ( I do have a few pics with poses that are more pin-up, but I decided not to post them :P )

  3. You look absolutely beautiful :) I must admire your attention to detail as everything goes great together. I loose my patience in just doing my hair, but I admire someone who takes the time to portray a flawless image ^^ I would have given up completely after the manicure episode :))

    Get well soon and good luck in fighting the cold, they are something "special" this season :*

    Hugs,

    1. Thank you very much! I tried to nail the look to the last detail, indeed, but it was for a special occasion. The hairdo is always the most difficult part :))

      I know, I try to be careful, but I guess my immune system wasn't up to it :P

      Hugs&thanks!

  9. Aw I think you look gorgeous! These backseam nylons are wonderful with your plaid skirt. The sheer top is really pretty too. I like this modern take on pinup style.

  10. The black and white pic is truly remarkable! It looks really vintage and it seems to have that special mystery around it. Great hairdo even though it took you forever to make it :D

    E foarte interesant un lucru: cum reusiti intotdeauna sa aratati atat de bine si de original?
