Just saw these videos and had to share.
First off; kudos to Buzzfeed Australia for doing these awesome videos! I like how they’re showing people that, regardless of gender or body size/shape, anyone can rock a pin up look. In my opinion pin up is all about feeling sexy and confident, whether that means a tight dress and bright lipstick or a black leather jacket and a pair of cool sunglasses.
I really love pin up style. Pin up, rockabilly, and vintage styles are some of my favorites to incorporate into my everyday wardrobe. And I’d totally wear that red outfit in the women’s video, pure gorgeousness!
I’d love to do a pin up photo shoot. If I ever do I’ll probably have to make my own outfit, no shops around here would have all the appropriate stuff in my size. Hot Topic actually does stock some accessories that would be awesome for pin up, but usually in Hot Topic I spend all my money on Doctor Who stuff so…. What little pin up-type stuff that I have is stuff I usually make myself.
But I think making my own outfit completely from scratch would just make it more fun and I could go as crazy as I wanted to… or not. Simple can be pretty too! 🙂
