Pin Up Girl Clothing Store's 1st Year Anniversary Party!


LAST NIGHT'S PARTY WAS AN ABSOLUTE BLAST!

I can't say enough how excited and thrilled I was to finally meet so many beautiful ladies that I have the joy of following on Instagram as well as their blogs and other bloggers' posts.

The party was a smashing hit, great food, great champagne, fabulously dressed women, down to earth and sweet people so eager to mix and mingle that it just made me so proud to be a part of a community of vintage lovers that exhibit class as well as humbleness that you just don't see much in most people these days!

Okay, enough of my ramblings, I have a ton of pictures to show so I will just get started. This will be a long post since between Instagram and my digital camera, I probably took more pictures than Annie Liebovitz has in her entire career!!!

Since this was my first time physically at the store, I had to take some typical first timer pics of the decor since it is a vintage girl's dream of a yesteryear department store window displays and home decor!

 Store Entrance

LOVED THIS! - "Through these doors pass the most beautiful girls in the world."

Window display, can I have one of everything please?!

Store interior, that's Veronica and her super sweet Mom in the foreground.

Ummmm, Ima need that lamp....

Me all giddy with the lovely model and one of the PUG dolls Doris MayDay. I'm telling you this girl NEVER takes a bad picture!! Love her!

Doris and another lovely PUG doll Alisha both working fabulous dresses with their fabulous red hair!

And this is when the madness for the night began.....

The lovely vixen in the middle is another PUG doll, the talented Micheline Pitt who stole the evening with that exquisite gown she rocked all night!

At this point, the store was starting to get a crowd coming in but you still had some room to move around and shop, but not for long lol....

I attended the party with my lovely friend and Mary Kay rep Ashley (on the right) and Katherine was the first super sweet doll we chatted up that night.

I loved how everyone was dressed to impress and rocking their looks! Now this is how women should be dressing!

Since I came straight from work I didn't have time to change into an evening gown. I was so surprised at the numerous compliments I received on my hair when I thought everyone else's looked better than mine lol! This was my solution to fighting rain and humidity earlier that day.

At this point, the boutique started getting packed as the festivities were getting into full swing!


 
I couldn't resist taking a pic of this amazing shadow box!

Vanity area to get your hair and make up done in house!

Another stunning PUG doll working the fitting area, bless her heart it was CRAZY too and she kept her cool! Loved her entire outfit, such a sweetie!

 I had the absolute pleasure of meeting the lovely Jenny Eloise Rieu  who is a singer/actress all the way from Paris! Isn't she gorgeous? Her outfit was tha straight BIZNESS too! Dress was from PUG.
The girl had mad shoes that she decorated with little fruit pieces!
As if the shoes weren't amazing enough, the girl had to wow me even more with a fruit assortment that she created for the top of her head scarf! WHAT!


Once we met, we hung out most of the night trying to keep from passing out in the store since it was getting so packed that we literally started to sweat from the heat!

I was so elated to see the classy and gorgeous pin up model Ms. Angelique Noire in attendance! In my opinion, THIS is what a model is SUPPOSED to look like dammit! Not this mess you see on the billboards today but let me not digress. She was such a doll to speak to and super humble, love her!

Angelique is so tall I had to stand on my tip toes so I wouldn't look so short! To my far right is Smexcksy who me and Ashley also tagged along with for most of the night, love her! She was a ton of laughs and we would get into some dangerous fun later that night...

Me on my tip toes again, and starting to sweat from the masses in attendance!

Stage area, look how crowded it got and the night was really just getting started!

My girl Doris was werkin' that register and playing MC earlier too and still looking fabulous! Again, the girl just can't take a bad picture!

One of the reasons I prefer shopping in boutiques than regular stores, the attention to detail takes you back to the style of the mid century stores and how classy they were designed.

The super cute make up artist and PUG doll Stephanie aka Cinemansugar rocking a fab dress and vintage jewlery that I was just drooling over!

Micheline leading the champagne toast to celebrate PUG store's 1 year anniversary!

It was packed for the toast!

This lovely caught my attention the minute she walked through the door! Check out her corset from Castle Corsetry!!! She was werkin' her outfit, dress was from PUG also.


The AMAZING Tony Medina, hair stylist to the PUG dolls. This is the man behind all of the amazing hair styles you see the girls sporting on the website and promo pics! He never ceases to blow me away with what he can do with some hair.


Veronica and Tony


Told you I took a mess load of pictures....


Everyone was so well dressed. Isn't she cute! I love her hair.

Congrats to these two lovebirds who just got engaged!

Loved talking to her! Super sweet, isn't she adorable? She reminded me so much of Yvonne De Carlo! And guess what....?

She had Yvonne (aka Lily Munster) and the rest of the Munster family tattooed on her arm!!! LOVED IT!!!!!!!

Glad to see somebody representing the 60's dammit and was she rockin' that dress or what?! Loved her look and she was super sweet to talk with too!

I had such a blast meeting new people and getting a chance to visit the store. Can't wait for another event like this to see all the girls again! 

Once the party was over me, Ashley, Smexcksy, Veronica, and her mom went to grab a bite at Viva Cantina. I was thinking about posting those pics but let's just say the entertainment and crowd for that evening were on the, shall I say, strange side. I'll spare you the gory details but lets just say the entertainment was strange enough to where Smexcksy's face in this picture explains it all:



'Til next time!


XOXO
