Every so often, you find yourself staring at an item that you have to have.
Unquestionably, irrevocably, undeniably.
For me, that item was the Jenny Skirt in Queen Of Hearts border print.
You see, waaaaaaay back in the wintertime, Pinup Girl Clothing posted this little sneak peek on their Instagram:
I spied that wee upturned Queen Of Hearts nose and half of a mischievous Cheshire Cat grin, and I knew that once this baby dropped…I’d be throwing my money at PUG.
Winter trudged along, dragging it’s snowy boot prints across my impatiently waiting heart. Spring came, and with Spring came hope. Finally, near the beginning of April:
Not 30 seconds later, the Order Confirmation email was sitting in my inbox, and I was a happy girl! Seven days and one enraged phone call to Fedex later, my very first Jenny skirt was finally in my waiting hands. And let me tell you, ladies…
New to the land of Jenny’s, I had done my homework prior to ordering. And while some reviews stated that certain color ways ran small (I’m lookin’ at you, cherry print and Italian landscape print!), I stuck to my usual size L when ordering. Thankfully, I found that this particular color way ran true to the size chart. It zipped flawlessly onto my 30″ waist, even leaving a bit of breathing room (or “big dinner” room)!
With my sizing concerns calmed, I was able to admire the bright colors and fantastic artwork that had gone into making this skirt a reality. Stephanie Buscema’s rendition of Alice, the Red Queen, the White Rabbit and the Cheshire Cat lend themselves to a fantastic variety of pairings! Featuring lush greens, sunny yellow, bright reds, and even pink, the outfit and accessory possibilities are expansive!
In my most recent shoot with Sarah King Photography, I chose to pair my skirt with the red Peasant Top by Pinup Couture, and a pair of red Ida pumps by Bait Footwear. The result was bright and whimsical pinup attire, perfect for any tea-party. (Mad Hatter’s, or otherwise!)
This was also my first foray into the world of the Pinup Couture peasant tops, and I was so pleased! Of all my pinup tops, these are by far my best-fitting (size Medium, measurements 40″-30″!), and most versatile. I find they can be dressed up or down, worn on the shoulder or off, and did I mention–incredibly comfortable!
In all, another fabulous offering from the powers that be at Pinup Girl Clothing! Unfotunately, this beauty has sold out in most sizes. I am not sure if there is a planned restock, but I will update this post as soon as I find out! Don’t worry, though. There are plenty of other fantastic and whimsical items for your perusal as part of PUG’s Fairytale Fantast Collection. Go ahead, dive into these very grown-up interpretations of your favorite childhood storybooks!
