    Budget Pinup!

    Budget Pinup!

    If your just starting out in the pinup world and you are on a budget, then there are many brands out there that can provide you with vintage inspired looks for extremely competitive prices.

    Dresslily is one of those very versatile brands. Being a leading international online fashion clothing and home wares store they offer the very latest products to suit a wide variety of styles and personal tastes.

    So I thought I would put together a few different looks featuring three different vintage inspired dresses from Dresslily with all the photography by my fabulous friend Brookleigh Photography. Be sure to check her out!

     First up is the Cross Back Flower Print Vintage Dress

    Blooming with flowers enliven this vintage-inspired A-line dress cut with a high-rise waist with a crisscrossed back is the perfect floral frock for the cooler months. There a few standout colours featured in the fabric which makes accessorizing a dream. I teamed this dress with a red bolero, orange vintage hat and gloves, teal stockings and a big red flower. This is a shorter cut dress, so if you prefer longer dresses then this one is not for you. You can pick this little number up for $42.70. This one was definitely my favourite of the three featured.

    Style: Vintage
    Occasion: Day
    Material: Cotton,Spandex

    Pattern Type: Floral
    With Belt: No
    Season: Spring,Summer

     

    Next is the Fold Over Off The shoulder Skater Cocktail Dress in navy blue. I do love a good off the shoulder number and I was pleasantly surprised with the fit, fabric and colour for the price of $46.18. Easily matched with a variety of different accessories, I chose baby pink beads and true vintage gloves. This dress could easily be dressed up or down depending on your event or mood. A belt would also look amazing with this dress however I chose to just feature the dress on this occasion.

    Style: Vintage

    Material: Cotton,Spandex
    Silhouette: A-Line
    Dress Type: Skater Dress
    Dresses Length: Knee-Length
    Neckline: Off The Shoulder
    Sleeve Length: Short Sleeves
    Pattern Type: Solid
    With Belt: No
    Season: Fall,Spring

     

    Lastly for the animal novelty print lovers is the Dinosaur Print Dual Strap Dress available in both black and white. I received the white and straight away knew that my leather jacket would suit it perfectly. While I do the love the colours featured in the fabric I'm not a huge fan of dinosaurs but for the price of $50.32 I was happy with the fit and cut, especially the neckline. The skirt is not a full circle so I was only able to fit a small very soft petticoat underneath. If you love dinosaurs and novelty prints then this dress would be perfect for you, or if you had a themed party to go to. For me the jacket gave it a rockabilly edge, but there are many ways you could go in terms of styling.

    Final thoughts, if you are a pinup on a budget or maybe you are just starting out in the world of pinup and are yet to find your style, or if you are a teen with a pinup dream. Then check out Dresslily, there are so many styles to choose from that won't break your bank account. They have a lot of reviews on their items so be sure to give those a read too. They provide full or partial refund if the item is not as described on the website. I will also be trying some of their swimwear when the weather warms up, so keep an eye out for that.

    Erstwilder Fan Favourites!

    Erstwilder Fan Favourites!

    It's that time again!

    The fabulous team at Erstwilder have released a super exciting collection just in time to brighten everyone's spirits.

    The Fan Favourites Collection launched today at 12:30PM  is full of VIP {Very Important Pieces} that have been remade in different colours, or slightly different designs. They have also been the most requested by us, the Erstwilder obsessed lovers of all things Erstwilder!

    I have always been a sucker for Fairy Bread so when Erstwilder gifted me the fairy Bread Brooch plus the matching Large Neck Scarf I nearly fell off my chair with excitement. The fairy Bread Brooch made from high quality layered resin and comes complete with no nibbles taken out and covered in sprinkles, so it's full of deliciousness and ready to be pinned to your best vintage blouse or cardigan. Or match it with the Large Neck Scarf for something a little extra. All neck and head scarves are made from 100% Polyester, with a velvet chiffon feel making them a dream to wear. There is also stud earrings and a necklace available too, so you can be completely matchy-matchy!

    Now every pinup I'm sure has had mermaid fantasies, and mine all came true when I was also gifted the Treasure Within Brooch, which has been redone with bubble gum pink, pastel blue and a pearl surprise, the Saltwater Wisdom Stud Earrings and matching head scarf. I teamed the whole collection with adorable Mermaid Tee from Vinnie Boy Vintage which was the perfect finishing touch.

    So I know isolation has been hard on all of us, but this amazing collection will be sure to brighten your day. Supporting our local online businesses is even more important right now. Every purchase big or small keeps us going and the gorgeous bunch of bodies that run Erstwilder give so much back to the community. I've had my eye set on a few other pieces and can't wait to receive those too.

    I hope you enjoyed my At Home Selfie Series, there will more than likely be many more to come.

    Take care and stay safe!

    Poodle Sisters!

    Poodle Sisters!

    What a year it has been here at Cherry HQ!

    So many exciting things have happened and so many amazing opportunities have have presented themselves. The pinup community is a super supportive hub of dolls from all over the world, all sharing a love of vintage and 50's inspired wares. Being part of this community and providing pinups with gorgeous products and excellent customer service, has been a huge goal of mine since I started my little business 2.5 years ago.

    This year I wanted to give back to my fabulous customers, and to also show them support in their pinup journeys.

    So Cherry Doll was created. Cherry Doll is a monthly celebration of one chosen customer that loves all things Cherry La Blaze. I created a series of questions to answer to allow myself and the pinup community to get to know the selected Cherry doll. I created a Blog Post for my website and featured the chosen doll on all of my social media accounts. I have loved every minute of it and each month I would get super excited to release the new Cherry Doll to the world.

    As the end of the year is fast approaching I wanted to do one last feature, however instead of focusing on one lovely lady, there are a group of women that I wanted to share with you all.

    Also now known as my Poodle Sisters, these beautiful women were my promo models for a custom made 50's Poodle Skirt which is now available in store.

    Generally I model my products myself if I have no photos, but I wanted to do something different and involve other pinups. I did a model call and the response was so overwhelming it was so hard to choose. My aim was to be as diverse as possible and to show the public that this skirt looks adorable on women of all shapes and sizes.

    With the help of photographer extraordinaire Brookleigh Photography and the super kitsch venue Happy Days Donuts we nailed it!

    https://www.facebook.com/realbrookleighphotography/

    My vision had come to life and that wouldn't have been possible without these lovely ladies. Once released this adorable skirt sold out in a few sizes straight away! Restock is on it's way!

    I truly believe it was because of this gorgeous campaign we all created together that excited the public and my customers. They could see how fabulous it was on real women of all shapes and sizes, which is so important.

    So without further ado here are my final Cherry Dolls for 2019!

    Next year I will be shaking things up and Cherry Doll will be changing in a more exciting way, so stay tuned for my announcement over the next couple of months.

    A huge thank you to everyone involved, You all brought your own style and personality to the campaign and I couldn't of asked for a better group of people to work with.
