Happy June 1st! Can you believe it's already June?! I feel like spring really flew by... I hope summer goes a little slower! I hadn't planned on using these photos for an outfit post; I actually just took them to enter a contest that Pinup Girl Clothing was holding, called the #PairedUpInPUG contest. Entrants had to pair up with another PUG lover and stitch together photos of each person wearing the same Pinup Girl pieces. I paired up with the gorgeous Shermy (whom you might remember from this blogger interview post), since I knew we both had these Neverland Jenny dresses – and I had a mint cardigan and parasol I could add to match how she styled it. I don't really enter contests often, and I certainly didn't expect anything since there were so many great entries... but we won!! We each got to choose a free dress from PUG's current offerings, which was super exciting! I'd been hoping the Mary Blair umbrella print dress would be in stock, but the release has been pushed back, so I ended up choosing the Mary Blair planes print Heidi instead. It wasn't initially on my wish list, but after seeing how amazing some of my friends looked in it, I had to go for it. It was such a nice surprise, and I can't wait to wear the dress!
This Neverland Jenny will always be one of my favorite PUG pieces. I think it's the best-fitting out of the Jenny dresses I own, and how can you go wrong with a pink novelty print dress that's based on Peter Pan? I know the price of PUG's clothing can dissuade some people, but the quality is SO superior, and it's made ethically and in the United States. Fast fashion can be really tempting (believe me, I'm guilty of supporting it, too!), but I'd much rather have a wardrobe of high quality, timeless pieces that will last forever over a bunch of cheap, poorly-made pieces that'll be out of style in 6 months. Plus, I love wearing things that make me feel special, and companies like PUG always deliver on that!
