There are times I think it would be wonderful to be as pretty and dressed up as one of the Vargas or Elvgren gals every single day, but (budget constraints aside) it’s not really all that practical – at least not for me.
However, a lot of people are drawn to the pin up style for the clothes, hairstyles, and/or accessories, but to me pin up is much more than pretty dresses, curly hair, and cute nick-nacks (although they do help 😉).
But pin up isn’t just a way to dress in summer, or when you’re feeling in need of a pick-me-up; it starts long before you get some clothes on; it starts inside each and every one of us, and radiates outwards.
All the pin-up gals I know feel good about themselves; I’m not saying
that we think we’re all supermodels because we don’t, but we are comfortable in our skin and are happy to show that to the world through our outfits.
Pin up is an attitude, not one that is self-righteous, or holier-than-thou; but an attitude of confidence, self-love, and beauty that comes from within.
We’re proud to be who we are, to follow the beat of a different drummer – or no other drummer but ourselves
As I said on Twitter earlier: “I’ll be me, and you’ll be you; we needn’t say any more on the matter because what’s the point?”
