Hello, sailor!

pinup girl clothing anchor dress

I know everyone is looking forward to fall, but it's still pretty hot around here – which gave me a chance to wear my new-to-me Renee dress from Pinup Girl Clothing and take a little morning trip out to Ontario Beach. I also wore this dress when Ashley and I recently spent some time in Santa Monica, so I'm glad I'm getting some wear out of it even at the end of beach season! Our beach here is actually on a lake, not the ocean, but it's nice to be so close to one... even if I always forget it's there!

Like many girls, I was intimidated by the Renee style for a long time; the midriff cutout is quite bold, and the neckline is pretty bare. I was afraid that this dress would highlight the parts of my body that I'm insecure about and would be generally unflattering. But I had to admit that I was really curious about how it would look on me, and after seeing other girls look so amazing in it, I took the plunge when I saw it was for sale in a Facebook swap group. And the verdict is: I actually feel incredible in this dress. It's not a piece I can wear for a lot of occasions (it's simply too revealing on me), but I'm really happy I took a chance and added it to my wardrobe. Truthfully, I don't often feel sexy... but I do in this dress. I think part of having fun with fashion is being able to highlight what you love about yourself with your clothes – and another aspect of that is feeling so awesome in what you're wearing that it brings out a side of you that you didn't even know you had.
