I love piercing but only my ears as it looks beautiful and you can also sport a lot of earrings.

So I honestly don't dress this way but I absolutely LOVE it :smileyhappy:!!

I'm a bigger girl and I love the way that dresses with those types of shapes look on me!

I guess I mainly don't dress like this because I feel like a lot of it is online (?) and I have this thing where I really can't buy clothes unless I try it on first. 

Anyways I love seeing all the pictures on here so thanks :smileyhappy:!

To my pinup/vintage vixens. I'm trying to remember a makeup line that is pretty geared towards that look and does more high-end type cosmetics and does all vintage color reds and some press powders. I'm really trying to remember it....ugh.

I live by Modcloth. I wear dresses almost every day, and there's a 90% chance that the dress you'll see me wearing will be from Modcloth. I wear 50's style dresses and shoes, from Modcloth, occasionally Unique Vintage, and various pieces from other stores that match my look. I don't know anyone else who lives by 50's style, and certainly not any of my peers (I'm in college--I mostly see sweatpants, leggings, hoodies, and Uggs. Also socks with sandals, shudder). 

 

I've been wearing 50's style for about two years now? Probably?

 

Emily & Fin, I think, are my favorite dress designers. There's almost nothing they've come out with that I've hated.

 

I will, very rarely, deviate from my look. I do own a few pairs of jeans, and some t-shirts, plus some shoes that aren't heels (GASP). I only usually wear jeans on days where I'm too exhausted to shower or I'm just feeling highly lazy. I have a pair of knee high lace up boots that aren't 50's that I adore, and I sometimes wear those. I have a pair of Docs, too. And a sequin beanie that I rock. 

 

But 98% of the time it's 1950's style. :smileyvery-happy:

Do you find that its a lot of maintenance? Do you also do the elaborate hair and makeup? I'm just curious.

 

I used to be really into the whole nine-yards and the older I got, the lazier I became. Now, I'm mostly Black Milk leggings, black graphic-tee or hoodie and Dr.Martens. I have too many coats, but I wear mostly leather or high cowled trenches.

 

I do own a nice selection of high end normal clothing. But, most of them are still in the dry cleaning bags.

My hair is very uncooperative with styling, so I don't do the curls. My hair can't hold a curl for more than five minutes. I do have bows and headbands that I put in my hair, and I braid it and sometimes ponytail it.

 

Makeup wise--it's usually only 15 minutes. Full coverage foundation, rosy cheeks, pink or red lips, neutral eyeshadows (only sometimes--I do golds, silvers, purples, and pinks as well). I fill in my eyebrows, as well. I don't have the hang of fake eyelashes, but I have really long ones anyway, so I just put mascara on. My eyeliner is usually pencil because I'm more comfortable with pencil, but that's usually black, silver, copper, or gold. When I'm feeling really bold, I do use my liquid eyeliner, but that's generally not everyday.

 

I'm generally more adventurous with my makeup than the mid-century would allow, but 90% of my wardrobe is mid-century. :smileyhappy:

The general disbelief when people find out I don't even own a single pair of jeans (I do own a pair of black canvas work pants but I wear them for, you know, heavy duty work-stuff) was funny, then annoying, and is now mostly amusing.

Re: Gothic girls, Pin-up, Punk and J-Fashion Enthusiasts. Calling all Alternative Fashion ladies!

Chic Star clothing has some interesting stuff - and they carry plus sizes (which can be hard to come by in alt-fashion.) 
Pyramid Collection leans hippie grandma but they sometimes have things (and also carry a smaller selection of plus size items)
Domino Dollhouse is exclusively plus-sized. I don't know how I'd characterize their look but it's in the general alt-fashion range. 
Rago Shapewear sells vintage and modern shapewear in a variety of sizes
Hips and Curves is exclusively plus-sized but carries a few things of use (fashion "corsets" - you know what I mean, not serious custom or shaping ones, sometimes a dress or a skirt or accessories)

Oh! And how could I forget Sock Dreams for everything from chunky cable-knit leg warmers to cuban heeled stockings? If it goes on your feet, they have it.

I'd like to suggest Stop Staring for pinup style, Dita Von Teese's Von Follies line for vintage style lingerie. If I can think of more I'll share.

 

Independent designer Sharon Ehman's brand Toxic Vision for a metal style.

You know what I find that works pretty good when people say that I listen to Devil music. "Hail Satan!" ...then I start chanting in Latin. I know it doesn't help, but I sure get a kick out of it.

How long you've been into alternative fashion: I got into pinup fashion about 2 years ago. I have an hourglass figure and found it difficult to fit into many of today's trends. I love vintage silhouettes - they make me feel feminine :smileyhappy:
Some pet-peeves/misconceptions about your style: Well, I mostly wear jeans and tshirts because I work in a lab. If I had a choice, I'd wear dresses every single day. I guess since I rarely get to, people don't know what my style actually is.

Favorite Designers: Dior, Versace, Marchesa, Alexander McQueen, and many more; I could never afford these, so I get most of my dresses from Pin Up Girl Clothing.

Favorite Makeup Brands: Dior, Urban Decay, YSL
Favorite Perfumes/Scents: Marc Jacobs - Daisy
Ink/Piercings: Just my ears pierced. I'd never get a tattoo, but I have no problem with them. I have a huge girl-crush on Micheline Pitt, in the pic above, and she's got tons.
Zodiac: Virgo
