#16 Pin Up Girls Give Away!

To celebrate 40 followers, I will be giving away a brand new "Joanie Dress" from Pin Up Couture (via Pin Up Girl Clothing). See below for what it looks like!

It's a really cool vintage reproduction. I thought I got it in a size 2XL, but I think it's more like an XL, fitting sizes 12-14 (and maybe a 16 if you like it tight!). I originally bought it for work, but it's a little too form fitting for that purpose. However, I'd like to pass it on to someone who'll appreciate it! Here's the website's description:

"Pinup Couture's 2010 Collection takes its inspiration from classic shapes worn by screen icons of the 50s, but always with a modern, sexy woman in mind.

The Joanie Dress is our answer to two big requests from PUG fans: vintage-inspired styles that are workplace appropriate, and sleeves! The rayon blend fabric drapes beautifully, creating a 1960s silhouette with threequarter sleeves, a removable matching belt, and a wide rolled collar. Back zipper and walking slit."

  8. OMG!! This is the most amazing give away EVER!! I am in total love with this dress! I really wish I could fit it but I am a SOLID 20W!! I may can sqeeeeeeeze into some 18W but no way could I fit a 12-14. So disappointed (insert sad face with lip stuck out)! Kiah

  9. I have wanted to buy this dress for a long time, so I will definitely enter this contest!
    My email is, and the reason why I love 50's style is that I have an hourglass figure and vintage clothes accentuate it!

  10. I'm not sure if you've already done the give-a-away or not, but, I'd love that killer dress. My favorite era is 70's, but I love a nice form fitting dress and that's just my size!
