Pinup: a girl or woman whose glamorous qualities make her a suitable subject for a pinup
When I envision the women of the 30s through the 60s, the image that typically comes to mind is that of extreme glamour. I think of Marilyn Monroe, the ultimate sex symbol, to the average housewife in her worn-in day dress. The fashion was bright, well-fitted, and utterly feminine. Even a trip to the supermarket called for you to look your very best. I have always had a fascination with the way women of the time had hair waved perfectly, the intricacies of the lingerie worn nearly every day, and the subtle, yet sultry sway of a woman in a wiggle dress. All women, no matter their status, exuding a special kind of effortless elegance.
I often think to myself how I wish this kind of glamorous, everyday wear would come back in style. I love the way vintage makes me feel - curve-hugging dresses, dainty gloves, intricate undergarments, corsets... I know I certainly am not the only one either. There is a great, big, beautiful world of vintage lover's just like me and even more so, many people who have never been exposed to it and don't know where to find it. That brings me to my vision...
The Proper Pinup is the one stop shop for all things vintage. Not just anything vintage, however - we will have a focus on the 1930s though the 60s. Vintage dresses, cosmetics, & accessories added consistently. Modern-day reproductions from some of my favorite brands that I already have in my wardrobe. I can't wait to share unique and authentic vintage items with this community that I currently have in my personal collection and those I find in the future.
I am so thrilled to see my years long dream of being a vintage boutique owner come to fruition and share my love for these fashions with you. As a thank you for reading this far and being one of the first visitors to my site, please enjoy 15% off your first order using the code WELCOME15.
