Is She a Pin Up?

Question asked and answered. Oh hell yes!

Modern Pinup/rockabilly is a way of life a dedication! Individuals who change their whole image to look like that of previous era (in particularly 1940s – 1950s). That incorporates their hair make up and attire. There are distinctive sorts of pin ups styles, everything from retro cheesy to Hollywood glamour and femme fatale.

Moving Sale!

We’re in the process of moving into a new space and decided to put a bunch of our Pin Up! The Movie swag on sale.

Summertime. And the art is easy.

Hi friends, sorry for my absence – it just felt so good to shut down the computer and work without the influences of the internet a few days! The Saugatuck Art Colony was one of the first posts I did on this blog – I still love the summery, relaxed and creative atmosphere in the […]

Back to School with Grace Hopper

We’re in New England this week, and loving it that Yale renamed one of its colleges after Grace Hopper, the former Navy WAVE who was also a pioneer in STEM careers for women.

Reflections on “Call the Midwife”

I am a millennial: eating that avocado toast, being unable to afford a home, and watching entirely too much Netflix. I often find myself in the section of Netflix of period dramas because I love that they tend to focus on the stories of women. The characters are relatable, the set design has to […]

We’re Looking for a Drink with a Pretty Parasol

Hawaii Statehood

53 years ago this month Hawaii became a state.

6th Annual Floral Parade

And so we celebrated by looking at great travel posters. Among other things….

And Then There’s a Little Bit of Fetish…

BTS from Selena Gomez’s new video.


Speaking of Festishes

Apparently for Millennials it’s NOT boobs. At least according to Porn Hub.
