Dreaming of Venice

How many of you took advantage of all the incredible Black Friday and Cyber Mondays deals? With our favorite retailers like Pinup Girl Clothing offering 30% off sitewide, it was definitely an early Christmas for the pinups fashionistas. For the first time in years, I did not set my alarm for 3 am to partake simply because I nabbed my “must haves” prior to the mega sale for fear they would sell out…and they ALL DID! It seems many of you share my love of scenic print skirts as the Jenny Skirt in Italian Landscape flew off the shelves. But don’t fret if you missed out, this is one of their best selling prints from the Spanish Capsule Collection and is sure to be back again soon.

Available in sizes XS-4X ~ MSRP $98USD

IMG_6422 IMG_6437When the Jenny Skirt in Italian Landscape was first released, the sizing was definitely running quite small but subsequent runs were corrected to be true to the size chart. If you read the online reviews on the PUG website, be aware that some of them purchased from the first batch run and might confuse someone to believe they should go up to the next size. I ordered mine from the most recent restock this past fall therefore I can confirm that the measurements are true to the size chart and the size small fits my waist (26-27″) perfectly. The waistband is meant to sit at the natural (high) waist and designed to fit snugly like the true 1950’s silhouettes. The Italian Landscape depicts the most exquisite vintage Venetian cityscape with romantic gondolas. The Jenny Skirt features a gathered full skirt with wide waistband and back zipper closure. At 5′-4″ tall, the skirt sits a few inches below the knees and measures 28″ in length.

IMG_6433 IMG_6442Believe me when I say, photos do not truly capture the striking beauty of the print and rich colours that you experience in person. As a collector of genuine vintage scenic print skirts, I am thrilled to find affordable alternatives which will hold up in the busy lifestyles we all live today without sacrificing the captivating artistry from the past. The infamous PUG Jenny Skirt is known for it’s versatility to mix and match with your existing wardrobe separates. I personally love the richness of the deep red and blue, making it ideal to wear year round. With the super full gathered skirt, there is definitely enough oomph (volume) to forgo a petticoat but looks equally great with one as well.

IMG_6419The Jenny Skirt in Italian Landscape can be dressed up or down simply by what style top and accessories you choose to create your ensemble. PUG has a few different top styles (Sabrina, Lauren, Gia) in the perfect shade of blue to accent the print but don’t let that limit you…white, black, and stripes all pair delightfully together too! With the cold temps now upon us, I opted to pair the Jenny Skirt with the turquoise Gia top, wide black vinyl belt and black pumps.

IMG_6432 IMG_6436Classic scenic prints skirts have transcended decade after decade as their artistry is truly timeless. To see Pinup Girl Clothing restoring some of those lost masterpieces for us to enjoy and admire once again is such a delight. The Jenny Skirt has become a household name and staple in our pinup wardrobes…and we can NEVER own too many!
