"there maybe be prowlers inside, may i see you to the door of your bedroom?"

' i don't think so.."

Is vintage Pin-up style affordable?

I hear girls say all the time..

"i would love to dress like a Pin-up girl, but i can't afford it!"

Pin-up girls are not millionaires or are rich or anything, sure we might buy a pear of louboutins to treat our self's once in a while, but most of it is knowing what to pear your clothes with  what flatters your body shape, taking time to put together your outfits it's  like the quote said...

"it's not what you have it's what you do with it"

You could have the designer dresses and handbags, but what good is all that if you don't know what to do with it? 
they are lots of shops you can shop at online besides "Pinup girls clothing "
even though i love there clothing if you can't afford to shop there here are some affordable online Pin-up style stores you can shop at..

they have clothing from all eras 
from the 1920's to 1980's
most of there clothing stays out of the three digit price range.
have look for you self!

the pretty dress has stunning dresses most them are not over 200$ dollars 
Go and check em' out!

They make 1940's 1950's style clothing they also make clothing for plus size women,
 so go 
and get your Pin-up on!

Some Pin-up girl's even buy vintage clothing (not vintage style) but true vintage clothing, from sellers online for a cheap price or go to thrift stores to buy their cloths and  clean them here is a post from Missvictoryviolet cleaning a true vintage dress she had bought.

So lets recap.

You can achieve the Pin-up look if you..

  1. know how to style what you have.
  2. know where to look.
  3. take care of the clothing you have.
Have fun shopping!

Body shape Gide for Pin-ups!

Now if you're looking to dress like a Pin-up girl you've got to dress in  clothing that flatters your body shape.

1. tall rectangle or square shape
if you have
narrow frame, small bust,
choose jackets and tops, with detail at the collar
and neck line like this Pin-up below...

Person unknown
for dresses : chose princess cut or high wasted styles.

2. hourglass
if you have
big breast, small waist, and a round full bottom.

choose shaped styles that accentuate the waist work 
well with an hour glass figure and high-wasted styles.

3. top heavy triangle
if you have 
full bust, flat bottom,
wide shoulders, and a undefined waist.

Wear things that suit a top heavy silhouette like halterneck dresses
 V neck shirts, pants slim hips and bottoms.

  4. Oval

if you have...

 narrow shoulders, small bust thick waist slim legs,
and you are tall.
then wear 
straight asymmetric styles,chose things with a cowl neck line,
wear skirts with a faced waist band.
