A new year marks a fresh start…and I’m very excited to introduce you all to some incredible brands never before featured here at Pin Up Persuasion. The leisure of internet shopping has granted us the luxury of going beyond any border to shop retailers around the globe. More and more unique independent retailers are springing up from down under; Australia is making huge waves in the vintage/pinup fashion market in recent years. If you have not already heard of Erstwilder, you will soon be seeing their adorable and quirky resin jewelry every where as they are a perfect statement piece to compliment any outfit.
It was a pure delight to pair my new charming friends from Erstwilder with looks pulled from my closet. First up is the gal that captured my heart with her polka dots, Alice the Elephant! The lovely Alice paired splendidly with the Fables by Barrie Scarlett Bustier and Pinup Girl Clothing Jenny Harlequin skirt for a fun and flirty ensemble. The best thing about these precious little characters, is that they go with just about anything…including jazzing up basic sweaters in the cold winter months.
Then there is playful little Celicia Seal, a true ray of sunshine. I couldn’t help but choose the brightest yellows and oranges in my closet to capture her essence at heart. Celicia looks splendid with the Gold Bombshell Tank from Le Bomb Shop and Pinup Girl Clothing Jenny Oranges skirt which I finished off with my B.A.I.T Dennise wedges in yellow. I felt like I should take a trip to the circus or carnival so she would fit right in.
Erstwilder not only designs enchanting brooches, they also offer their creations in earrings and necklaces as well. Last by certainly not least, Dot the Dozing Deer necklace. The cherry red with blue accents makes Dot versatile to wear with more than just one colour scheme. The extendable chain makes it perfectly adaptable to adjust based on the height of the neckline you may be wearing. The gracefulness of this darling fawn seemed to go wonderfully with the sweetheart bodice on the Pinup Girl Clothing Voodoo Vixen top and Audrey Skirt in red floral border print.
There is something truly special with each of the Esrtwilder characters that will capture your heart. I find these little creatures can’t help but bring a smile to my face and brighten whatever outfit they adorn. Brooches are making a huge comeback from the era we all treasure so fondly; these too will become pieces to collect and cherish for years to come. Lucky for all of you, Erstwilder is one of our dear sponsors for our 3rd Anniversary Bash…giving you the amazing chance to win 3 brooches of your choice! Make sure to enter before it’s too late!
