Modern Day Pin Up Style with Rachel from Chicago Chic



Hello everyone! Rachel from Chicago Chic here, honored to be back for the Style Society with another guest post! I have to say the #iamunique campaign has really encouraged me to think a lot about what it means to embrace “uniqueness.” You might remember when I shared my thoughts on being a modern day pinup, and the self assurance this requires in today’s society.

OOTD: Strongman Swing Dress


Theres something magical about the circus with the amazing acts, exotic animals, and delicious sweet scents of cotton candy and caramel corn. The instant we saw the Blue and Black Stongman Swing Dress we were head over heels in love. We adore statement prints and this little showstopper of a frock is adorned with a festive vintage-inspired circus print that we just couldn’t pass up.

blue+vintage+circus+print+1950s+swing+dressTo keep the focus on the darling print, we styled the dress with understated tonal accessories like the Black Lady Lux Work Bag, the Pin Up Ankle Strap Gorgeous Heels, and the Light Blue and Tortoise Love Story Sunglasses. Finish the ensemble by adding a touch of volume to the dress with the Black Tea Length Petticoat Crinoline.

For more delightful frocks with pretty prints, shimmy on over to our pin up dress section and grab yourself something fabulous.
