Every Girl Can be a Cosmo Girl!

Well here they are, the latest release that has everyone talking... errr... reading, umm... well, I think it's pretty special! It all started when I heard my good friend and PIN UPS DJ Jhuzen Ketsugo of SL Fashion Addict mention how much she would love to have the yellow dress she saw music star Rhianna wearing on the conver of Cosmopolitan Magazine. After seeing the dress myself I just had to make it for her - and all of you!

In addition to the amazing yellow I did a series of bright colors and a few more muted shades, some with Tarnished Gold and some with Tarnished Silver embroidery, the dress is called Cosmo. In 8 colors;

I also made a Gown version of the dress, in soft pastels... which I think is great for spring, bridesmaids and formal occasions - I tried an all new skirt in these, and I love the amazing flowy result. In 4 soft shades;

Not wanting to leave the LBD (Little Black Dress) lovers out of the fun I created a Deluxe Editon where you get both the gold and the silver, and 2 different skirts (long gown & short dress);

Be sure and stop by my main store on RETROLOGY to get your new 1L dress, an adorable flirty version of the Lisa Dress!
Enjoy - More to come soon... promise!

Pinny is back InStyle!!!

Yes, It has been a million years since I last updated my blog. And things at the shop have been moving along rather slowly, a new release every couple of months or so... while I try and juggle real life commitments. But this past week a very exciting opportunity fell into my lap, one that I could not refuse.

I was approached by Kylie Gears, President of Instyle Fashion Agency and asked if I would be willing to be the featured designer for one of the Instyle Modelling School Graduation Shows. Well naturally I jumped at the chance, to see my clothes on the runway... what a thrill! The entire thing was a huge undertaking, organizing all the clothes and even making a new series of dresses (more on those in an upcoming post).

Here is the Invitation prepared for the show by Anessa Stine!

And here are the photos from the show - sorry for the low rez shots - lag and all made it tough!

The "Sally" Bikini

"Sally is a vivacious vixen, she wouldn't dare step out poolside unless her hair, nails, bikini, & shoes are as hot as Havana!"

My first creation, the Sally was inspired by an adorable Pin Up painting. Hand Painted with shaded creases, this off the hip Bikini comes in 4 colour options! I've included the pant and undies layers for the bottom so the girls with the Tats can partake, and the top is shirt layer. I sell this in a "Fat-Pack" version only since I think every girl needs options when poolside! Colours included are White Dot, Red Hot, Lady Bug, & Dalmatian. Enjoy! The 4 Pack sells for on $175L, and is Transfer so you can share them with your best girlfriends!

Here my friend DJ Ket-Su models her fave, the Lady Bug Bikini for me:

PIN UP Dolls Joins The Blog Brigade!

Pinny joins the 21st Century... who knew! Hey Everyone! It's about time I got my act together and started blogging for you. This is the place to find out all about the latest releases at PIN UP Dolls, and get the heads up on changes coming for the shop in general. You can let me know what you like about them, and let me know what you would like to see more of! I will be "back blogging" for a bit so I can chat a bit about all the outfits I have in my shop currently.

Why PIN UP Dolls?
I created PIN UP Dolls to celebrate the fabulously fun, sweet, & sexy Pin Up Girls of a Bygone Era! Their images inspire me, they had that "girl next door" sweetness tied into a confident "sex appeal" that has withstood the test of time. All my fashions are inspired by the fabulous Pin Up Photos I have collected over the years, My "B Line" inspired by the idea that every woman can feel like a "Pin Up" when they wear my clothes!

What's The SLurl?
