Pinup Couture Lizbeth Day of the Dead Wiggle Dress

1 Nov

This dress.  This dress, this dress.  It needs no words.  It is one of the most delicious designs that has come out of the Pinup Couture line at pinupgirlclothing.com.  It is also discontinued and hard to find.  When you do, snatch it up because they only come around once in a while.

So what makes this dress so special?  Partly it is the beautiful construction that you expect to find with all of the Pinup Girl Clothing house brands (Deadly Dames, Dixiefried, Pinup Couture, Laura Byrnes, etc.). It is also due to the rich shock of the lime green embroidery against the black bengaline.  The bengaline dress is so stretchy and yummy, it hugs your curves beautifully, and more importantly it is so comfortable and you can wiggle in it while still maintaining your ability to breathe.  But aside from the comfort and the color and the oh-so limited availability  there is something else that makes this one of the most coveted dresses in the Pinup scene.

It captures the magic, mystery and culture of Dia de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead. It makes you feel like you’re celebrating in a quaint little Mexican town being ensconced in the culture of this very meaningful day. Not for the faint of heart, it features sugar skull embroidery across the top and across the bottom hem.  It has that edgy feel while still looking completely classy and grown up.  I find that it gets more and more difficult to rock skulls on my clothes as I get older, but in this dress, you can still rock the skulls without being mistaken for a teenager.  It is gorgeous, it is collectable, it is a statement.  It is quintessentially Pinup Couture.

I have one for sale here.  I was lucky enough to end up with two of these in my mad hunt for the Lizbeth, and that is just greedy.

****UPDATE: This dress sold on 11/4/12****
