Ever had that outfit you’ve looked at online, oogled and then told yourself it wouldn’t look that amazing on you so why bother? I think we’ve all had that moment. I’ve had more of those moments in 2016 than I care to admit but I’ve begun to find myself in a place where I love my curves instead of loath them. This outfit was one of those outfits I’d thought so much about. I recently ordered a dress from Pinup Girl Clothing through Natasha Marie Clothing and on a whim put the Malia top in Oxblood and the Pointe Midi skirt in black in my order too. This turned out to be a godsend because while the dress ended up not suiting my shape, these are just perfect!

I am so incredibly grateful to Australian businesses like Natasha Marie who allow you to order in PUG and layby it. Its certainly made owning PUG possible again for me, as the drop of the Australian Dollar now makes it an incredibly expensive splurge when I do treat myself. I was so excited when these arrived in the post once paid off, as always I cannot fault Natasha’s amazing customer service.
I must admit, when I pulled the Midi Pointe skirt eagerly out of the bag, my first thought is it would be way too small. It looked tiny but thankfully it proved to be one of those instances when looks areÂ deceiving. Its incredibly stretchy and hugs my curves perfectly, both with and without shape wear underneath.
To complete this look I accessorized this outfit with my true vintage beret I scored on etsy for $14 (it actually is almost the exact same shade of red as the top!!), earrings from Revere Folie and black betty Sandals from Royal Vintage Shoes. My sunglasses are Jay Jays from a few seasons ago and are my 1940’s go to. I love how feminine and sassy this outfit makes me feel! This look is one I’d highly recommend to any 1940’s loving lady!
I paid $110AUD for my Malia top and $125AUD for my pointe skirt via Natasha Marie Clothing, which considering the exchange rate and the fact I didn’t have to cover postage into Australia balances out incredibly well. If you are a US gal, the malia top is $80USD and the pointe skirt is $90USD with their US shipping rates.
I hope you’ve all enjoyed this review. On a side note I’m honestly SO proud of my far my photography skills have come. I shot these myself with my camera remote on self timer and they came out killer!
