How do you like my sensationalist tabloid heading? Did it get your attention? Well, there's no scandal here. The PinUp girl in question is Pin UpGirl clothing (or PUG as we gals affectionately call them) and they have finally released a maternity line!
When I first became pregnant I had visions of myself being cute in some vintage maternity outfits. Cute little smock like tops with my red lipstick and curled hair. I spent hours combing Etsy and what i found is that
1: vintage maternity is very hard to come by
2: when you DO find it, it's prohibitively expensive.
So, I gave up that dream and spent my 9 months being cute in some $8 jersey maxi dresses from Ross.
If only this PUG line had been around then.
Now, first off, I have to say I am not a fan of the term Preggers. Ugh. I would have named the line something like "Bun" after Bun in the Oven. I always liked that term. It sounds cute to me. But you know what, when I am talented enough to create my own clothing line I can name it whatever I want. So, Preggers it is.
The dresses aren't available quite yet, but if you're expecting or plan to be then get over to the site and wait-list yourself for this beauties. I haven't seen them in person yet but I'm guessing by the cuts that they will still be super flattering when you move from bump to baby!
I hope this is a sign of good things to come. Maybe more vintage-inspired lines will start designing for moms-to-be.
