The Ella Dress!

Exactly 17 weeks ago, my favourite clothing company Pinup Girl Clothing posted this preview to a new style coming out… …with the following caption saying that it had been named after ME! Of course I completely lost it when I read this at work. Much jumping up and […]

The Rago 6207!

In my eternal quest to find the perfect piece of shapewear, I have looked at the Rago 6207 Long Leg Shaper many times. The thought of shapewear in the style of shorts frightened me… I always worried that the bottom band would cut into my thighs, creating a […]

The Victory Violet Suit by Devel Branded

One of the exciting prizes from winning Miss Pinup New Zealand was a custom made garment from Devel Branded. I requested a 1940s style suit- something I’m not able to buy vintage as whenever the jacket fits my measurements, the skirt is always too small in the hips. […]

The Audrey Dress by Bannou

Collectif Pearl Coat

A few months ago, Collectif Clothing in the UK release the glorious Pearl Coat . With it’s luxurious faux fur and long swing shape, I fell in love instantly! It sold out so quickly (as do lots of Collectif items, so get in quick!) that I missed out […]

Treasure Hunt!

Do you ever find yourself lost in the depths of the Internet, hunting down something that feels like a mythical creature that doesn’t exist? That’s exactly  how I’ve been feeling the last few hours! I have been searching and searching for a fan lace corset and they are […]

New Year, New Adventures!

The start of 2014 means the beginning of a new chapter for me- blogging! I am a active poster on social networking sites Instagram and Facebook but for a while now have felt like I wanted to share more, go into more depth and delve into different areas. […]
