I was given a bouquet of flowers today. Not by somebody I know or for a special occasion, but by a stranger out of nowhere. I was out doing my holiday shopping when I was approached by a lovely lady with a small bouquet of pretty pink and purple flowers. She exclaimed that she was just so delighted to see a woman who “dressed like a lady” and it completely made my day. While I don’t ever want to look down on a gal who feels like a million bucks in jeans and a t-shirt, I do advocate glamour every day and it was so nice to receive recognition for simply putting on a dress.
That being said – treat every lady like a lady no matter what she’s wearing. Open the door, present a wildflower, cook dinner… The little things are what we remember.

The number one question I get asked in reference to my “look” is “Do you have any tips or tricks that I can try in order to achieve that classic pin up look?” Or the second favorite is, “I bet your clothing & makeup cost you a fortune!” Well, dolls I am here to debunk both questions!
1. Honestly, anyone can achieve that ‘classic beauty’ look! From a red bandanna in your hair, to the classic traditional red lipstick and the black “cats eye” eyeliner–with enough practice anyone can have the look down! I slowly started to collect items I knew would help me create that stellar image– black liquid eyeliner (I like waterproof so it does not “melt” if I want to rock the look for long periods of time), a brow pencil to create that shaped, full look, and red lipstick. I think my biggest challenge was the lipstick! You will drive yourself MAD trying to pick out the PERFECT shade/quality of red lipstick! But in my opinion? EVERYONE has their own particular favorites! Some girls prefer the NYX red lip butter (frankly I hate having that “gummy” feeling on my lips– so I pass on that!) others like the beautiful bold reds produced by MAC, others are able to squeak by with whatever shades of red they are able to pick up from their local pharmacies. The key is getting one that feels most comfortable on *you*! Of course getting the lip liner to match is also a major plus to ;)! Anything that will help define those lips and bring that **POW** you are searching for– trial & error, dolls! Trial & Error! 🙂
2. Tips & Tricks? I am bit of a nerd, so most of my tips & tricks have been collected from various websites & youtube videos on “how to”– Simply googling “pin up girl tips” will get you a plethora of topics, ideas, webpages and of course things you can buy. Here are a few of *MY* “go-to” tips:
It’s all in the face! Pin-Ups are all about facial expression & personality. Find your personal “pin-up personality”. Are you smoldering and sexy? Cute and playful? Figure it out and spend some real time in front of the mirror finding out what expressions are best for you. Do what comes comfortably and most natural and your pictures will show that. We can always tell who has practiced faces before the shoot, and even a little practice means better pictures.
Curl your hair. Pin curls and victory rolls were a popular look for most pin-up girls. Curls were often achieved by a “permanent” which made hair easier to mold into a curl, but you can achieve this look without chemicals.
Don’t forget your nails. Deep reds, reddish browns, and pinks are good colors to go with, but you can also try black, which was surprisingly popular. Go for medium-length nails with tapered sides and pointed (but not sharp) tips.
Shop vintage and secondhand stores. Look for genuine vintage items from this era, including pencil skirts, A-line skirts, Cuban heeled stockings, round toed pumps, wiggle dresses, swing dresses, petticoats, 3/4 sleeve cardigans, cropped cardigans with full sleeves, and high waist capri pants, to name a few
Buy a bullet bra. This is the pointy-cupped brassiere that will give you the Marilyn Monroe sweater look which was all the rage during the pin-up era.
And MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL! 🙂 –> Dress for Your Personality, Not Because You Think It’s “Right”
Greetings and Salutations, Cats and Dolls! Suzie Snowflake here breaking the seal on the first introductory post for Poisonous Pin Ups! So what is there to say about Suzie? Well, I am a 27 year old “Old Soul” from Youngstown, Ohio! Youngstown was coined in 1963 as “Murdertown, U.S.A” by the Post due to our love for the Mafia and “Youngstown Tune Ups”, the deeply rooted corruption in local office and the miles of steel mills that dotted the Mahoning River (now home of the three eyed fish!) The crime and corruption that riddled Youngstown, Ohio has always been the norm to me. I always knew what I was not like the other kids in my class, or even my friends… I always wanted to wear pouty red lips, I wasn’t much for partying and was usually caught on a Friday night at home watching GREASE, eating popcorn and singing along on whether I was a “Sandy” or a “Frenchy”! Experiencing the “awkward” years of feeble attempts to find who I was in the world–the wasted bar scenes, the current, edgy fashions…none of them seemed to “fit” to me or make me feel comfortable. Finally, at 27 years on this earth I finally found that I am an old soul and always destined for that old type of life, you will catch me during the day as my job as a veterinary assistant with a teal bow in my curly up do and red lipstick (despite the risk of getting bit or scratched!), even my home life when you step into my black and white (with hints of seafoam green) kitchen and STARBURST dinette sets that I yearn to live a life that I myself have never personally experienced. That is one of the many reasons I love pin up! The women of pin up were classy, they were not severely pornographic (although in its hey day it was considered extremely sinful!) and the woman were beautiful! They had curves, they had a glow to them that radiated and each photo had a story plot which has me craving to learn more about that particular woman, which I feel makes a very strong and compelling photo! One that has no text but is able to say a plethora of stories and mysteries.
Please look forward to my future posts, videos & quirky little details about myself, my family & my future! Have a question you would like answered? Please feel free to contact me! 🙂
