I have a real love for vintage holiday pin-up photography. It’s a wonderful mix of sexy and cheesy. I love that models are always shot on super goofy sets with poorly made props. I love the clothes. duh. I love seeing how Christmas has changed, or not. I love that at one time, sexy meant smiling. That’s perhaps my favorite component of vintage pinups. Everyone always looks so happy! That’s how the holidays should be portrayed! The goal is merriment, even if theres a little chaos stuck in between. If you’re like me and can’t get enough vintage pinspiration, head to my Pinterest page to see these and a whole lot more!
Lemme just say, I love every single one of these outfits. If I could go back in time and raid these fine ladies pretty patterned closets, I totally would. I’d take their shoes too. I’m not even sorry. They just don’t make 'em like that anymore. I mean look at these women! Everyone’s so tailored and matchy. The collars, bows, knee-highs, tights and berets! This is exactly what I think of when I think back-to-school style. Or maybe what I dream of... because the reality of the situation is much closer to messy buns, sweatpants and flip-flops. Le sigh. If today's dose of vintage just wasn’t enough, be sure to head to my Pinterest for more pinspiration!
Aren’t these vintage Christmas cards lovely? I think I’d get along just fine with these ladies in their red dresses with stripes, bows, polka dots, and wonderfully full skirts. Perhaps I was meant to be in a Christmas card, as this describes 90% of my wardrobe. Maybe next year...Check out my Pinterest for sources and more holiday pinsperation.
Today I’m sharing a pretty comical collection of vintage Thanksgiving pinups… because beautiful bonnet clad women posing seductively next to turkeys is what Thanksgiving is all about. Amiright? This was one collection I thought might be a little tricky to find, unlike Valentines Day or Halloween. But apparently in pinup, all holidays are fair game (get it?) even turkey day. This may or may not have totally inspired me to dress up for our potluck. Why yes, I do have a homemade Native American costume. Glad you asked.
This is Halloween, this is Halloween! One of my favorite holidays is almost here. To get you all excited I’m sharing some of my favorite vintage vamps from Pinterest today. Aren’t these ladies stunning? I love the subtly sexy costumes and wonderfully DIY sets. Isn’t it fun to see how holidays change over time? From the looks of it, witches were once as popular as today’s sexy bunny. There are so many Halloween and fall themed posts I want to do this month, I hope I can squeeze them all in! Perhaps with a wave of this magic wand...
