no pin-up kit  

Teh intarwebs do not want me to own pin-up clothes. Paypal won’t let items paid for through it be shipped to Ireland and Pinupgirlclothing horks when I try to log in. Yes, I have credit cards I could use, or American addresses I could use, but part of the idea of the fun here was to be able to wear, say, this to P-Con, and having something shipped somewhere in America and then to me is certain to not get it to me by then. :p (Of course, if I got it, I would have to figure out how to do something with my hair, too, and that’s not a strong point for me…)

In other news, Chess is playing in Dublin at the end of March. I want very much to go see it. I suspect it’s actually probably not very good, but it’s got big hair music and I would so love to play Florence myself….

(x-posted from the essential kit)

You would leave us all rather covetous if you were to show up to P-con in that dress, for it is very pretty - especially in blue. ^-^

FYI Asked a friend, apparently there is a retro shop in Georges Arcade...but they are rather costly.

Yeah, I"ve been in there a few times. Their costs stopped looking so obscene just now when I found out how much international shipping was from pinupgirlclothing...o.O

That bites, I know my friend over there has problems even with a credit card, they claim that since Ireland doenst have postal codes, it doesnt exist.

I am sad you cannot have your dress.

I am also sad that you keep showing me these sites. *drool* XD

My wallet is sad, anyway.

OMG they have shoes I covet there. Damn you.....

(the clothing not so much - that period was not built for body types like mine. But oh! the classic 4" heel pump..... *covets*)

No, you're a much more 20s bodystyle, if you're going for 20th century fashions...but I'd love to see you in some of those shoes!

Thank goodness for Christina Hendricks coming to fame so that there are clothes that will fit and look good for the hourglass.

I don't understand why women aren't more demanding of attractive, fitting clothes. Except we don't as a rule know better. Also, while Hendricks' figure is almost as hard to come by as the svelte wraith-like look, it's *much* easier to *fake*, so again, I don't get why that kind of style isn't so much more in demand!

Because we are brainwashed into believing that if something doesn't suit our body type, or look good on us, then it's a our bodies that are wrong and not the fashion or that the designers are creating stuff that will only ever look good on a tiny, tiny proportion of the general public. They can't be wrong, therefore our bodies need changing and not the designs/creations.

Well, no. Some of us totally reject fashion and spend our time wearing jeans and t-shirts/sweaters that tend to look good on one no matter what shape. But too many do follow fashion instead of style. Must be seen to be like everyone else.

Some of us are very VERY fortunate and inherited not only grandmother's body type but her clothing as well.

*clears throat* Did I, uh, hit a button there? :)

I'm in the US and have a credit card. Would it help if I had it shipped to you and you paid me back via PayPal?
kitmizkit on February 22nd, 2011 09:57 am (UTC)
Nah, but thanks for the offer. :)

How could Chess ever be bad? I love that musical so much.

Lovely dress, that. Also, the internet is very good about saving my money too, since Norway isn't part of the EU and thus many places won't ship here. Ahwell, don't actually need Yet More Stuff...
