The Wonderful World of Mary Blair Meets Pinup Couture

A couple weeks ago, Pinup Girl Clothing announced their collaboration with the estate of Mary Blair for a limited edition collection of skirts and dresses featuring Blair’s whimsical art! To say I’m a huge Mary Blair fan would be an understatement — I’ve mentioned my love for her art on numerous posts in the past (here, here, and here) —  so of course I hyperventilated when I came across the announcement on Pinup Girl Clothing’s Instagram account.

All the pieces in the collection are so lovely, but these beauts are my favorites:

Aurora dress in Train Border print ♥

Heidi dress Planes print ♥

Nancy dress in Butterflies print ♥

Ella dress in Lips & Roses print in pink ♥

A date for when the collection will be available to purchase hasn’t been announced yet, but if you want to be alerted, you can join the waitlist on their website! There is also some really great potential to create a few Disneybound outfits with these dresses — the train print could totally be Casey Jr. from Dumbo and the butterfly dress fits perfectly with the butterfly motif that pops up in the live action version of Cinderella. 🙂

Which ones are your favorites from the Mary Blair collection?



The Funday Post: Parks & Rec edition

I’m still mourning the loss of my most favorite TV show, Parks & Recreation, which just joined Li’l Sebastian in that stable in sky last Tuesday with its series finale. 😦 In honor of it, this Funday Post will consist of all things Parks & Rec!

Entertainment Weekly reports the ongoings of the last day of shooting.

The cast toasts one another on Late Night With Seth Meyers.
