Fashion Inspiration: Pinup Edition

Screen Shot 2015-07-29 at 4.53.31 PM

  Pin up girls are widely appealing to popular culture and iconic in the world of fashion, glamour and beauty. There have been many iconic pin up girls in the past that are still celebrated today such as, Marilyn Monroe, Dita Von Teese and Betty Grable. There have been many controversies in regards to pin up girls and how it is corrupting societal morality and degrading towards woman hood. However, some believe it is considered to be a positive post-Victorian rejection of bodily shame and a healthy respect for female beauty. Pinup fashion has been questioned in regards to being an actual feminist. I see how it can be difficult to rationalize loving a fashion style that came from a time where women were oppressed more so than they are today. But that’s not all true.

There are some reasons why the pin up fashion in the 50’s is actually empowering for women. It embraces all the different body types. There is not specific requirement or a standard you have to meet to be a pin up girl, enforcing a positive message that size doesn’t matter! You get to embrace your inner quirk! Pin up fashion allows women to express there own style in many ways, whether its colour, different hairstyles, tattoos or clothes pairing. There are no rules! Do what you please, In the fashion industry there are trends and styles that are considered fashion suicide or unattractive. Whoever gave them the right to decide? Like that’s not degrading to women telling them how they carry themselves or what they wear is uncouth. You know who can be and wear whatever the hell they want? The pin up fashion community, that’s who! Granted the pin up version of the 21st century has the media turning them illicit, but isn’t everything in the media illicit today? It was never portrayed that way in the early years and that’s not why we embrace it today! Another reason to embrace pin up fashion is because they encourage strength! They aren’t shy and awkward, they are ballsy, strong and can stand their own ground. Who wouldn’t want to be a supporter of that?

So can you enjoy pin up girls/fashion and be a feminist? Yes, yes you can

AnnaLynne McCord

She has been one of my fashion inspirations since 90210. I loved her style on the show as Naomi Clarke, but I like her own style much rather than Naomi Clarke.

Rachel Bilson

I use to watch her back when she was on The O.C and now I love her even more on The Hart of Dixie. Her style on the show is always fashionable and in good taste, just like her very own style when she’s out and about running errands.

Audrina Patridge

I grew up watching The Hills and I fell in love with Audrina’s style. I find that she is one of my top fashion inspiration next to her on screen good friend LC. I love her street style when she’s wearing skinny jeans/denim and loose tanks and T-shirts. If I had to choose one celebrities style, It would be her.

Lauren Conrad

The Hills being my favourite show growing up, I loved watching LC’s different styles on the show. While I enjoy Audrina’s street style, I really love Lauren Conrad’s style when it comes to more flirty and floaty feminine dresses. When I want to dress with less edge, It would definitely be her style!

Hope you guys enjoyed this Celebrity fashion inspiration look book. I love the style’s of each one of these stunning ladies and find most my ideas and outfits inspired by them!

Enjoy. xx

Screen Shot 2015-02-19 at 3.38.32 PM

More like three shades of grey, two silver tones and one red. Yeah… It’s ranked the #1 movie right now, of course it would have it’s own limited edition nail polish line. The movie has gotten a lot of buzz in the media and everyone is going 50 kinds of crazy about it. But I have to say, the colours in the O.P.I nail polish line of 50 shades of grey are pretty amazing. All six colours are my style and are in trend right now.

O.P.I is my all time favourite nail polish brand, the quality of it is amazing, I find it is easier to put on the other brands and has great consistency. I would recommend O.P.I hands down as the best. Down below is a better look at all six colours in the line.
