  • Miss June Unique Vintage Pin Up Girl

    Name:  Autumn Breeze

    From:  Winchester, VA

    Bio:  I have always loved classic, feminine styles, but I really got into vintage when I started planning my wedding and stumbled onto I started wearing retro-repro styles to work, and soon I found I was much more comfortable in vintage-inspired and classic pieces than anything modern.  Lately, I’ve been seeking out more authentic vintage pieces to add to my wardrobe, and I’m getting into sewing vintage patterns.

    My first piece of vintage clothing was a very 70’s top of my mom’s that I wore to death in middle school.  When I was in high school, my grandmother gave me a gorgeous, 50’s, full-skirted, green dress that was hers.  I thought it was pretty then, but I didn’t appreciate it nearly as much as I do now.  In fact, it is the dress I wore for my rehearsal dinner.

    My first foray into pinup modeling was a wedding present for my husband.  The shoot was with Atomic Cheesecake Studios, and I was lucky enough to be included in their special edition of Retro Lovely Magazine, which spurred me to make a profile on one of those modeling websites.  From there, I scheduled a shoot with a local photographer, Captured Raw Photography, and I’m just hoping to do as much pinup modeling as I can.  I love any excuse to play dress up, from swing dancing with my husband, to just going to the movies.

    Ambitions:  I’m currently working towards opening an Etsy store stocked with my own, original pinup art.  I’m also dabbling in graphic design for small ads or websites.  And of course, I’d love to continue pinup modeling!  You can keep up with me on my Facebook page:

    Favorite Vintage Accessory:  I can’t get enough of vintage hats, though I have to admit, I don’t find much occasion to wear them.  I do have a collection of vintage brooches, which are easy to add to almost any outfit and are such a fun touch!

    Favorite Pinup Icon:  Elizabeth Taylor is probably my favorite pinup icon, but it’s so difficult to choose just one!  Liz was just impossibly gorgeous.  If I had to choose a favorite pinup icon of today, it would be Dita Von Teese.  I’ve never seen anyone who is as glamorous at every moment as Dita Von Teese.
