Inspired Pinup

One of my favourite local stores in Australia has to be inspired instantly! They always stock a variety of brilliant Hell Bunny garments, cardigans and all of those core pieces you need to complete a perfect pinup look.
So for this post I'm focusing on some of the items I've recently snapped up from their webstore featuring prints a plenty and some adorable colours.

I'm a huge fan of all things Hell Bunny but over the years I've never managed to model or review any tops so obviously this had to be rectified.

For my first ever HB top review I've gone for the adorable Aggy Blouse with the retro scotty dog print. Now this piece is the perfect retro top for work or play as it has a relaxed fit, a short cuffed sleeve and the sweetest puppy print I've ever seen.

A mixture of pink, cream and black the Aggy blouse is simple to style and looks amazing with anything from high waisted jeans to a wiggle skirt. I'm wearing this style in a 2XL and the fit is perfect as it's roomy enough for my bust with limited stretch in the fabric.

Even though I'm a true crazy cat lady I have a soft spot for puppers as well and this print is going to be on weekly rotation for work.


Ever since I shot and wore my gingham mini dress I've been hunting for another print to add to my collection a the Sailor Girl mini has been found. Featuring an amazing framed sailor lass portrait giving us another spin on the classic nautical vibe.

A pale blue slightly stretchy cotton with amazing black accents, buttons and print, a smocked back and fully adjustable straps so you can customize the fit that fits you best.


I'm wearing this in a 2XL and it fits just like my gingham version. I can't wait until the wear warms up so I can wear this all summer long!  Now please note that this style is a mini so it will sit just above your knees so it's not a super mini and perfect for warmer weather.

My original plan was to pair this with a solid black MAK sweater but I mixed up my choices and I love the results. I'm wearing the red cropped cardigan in a size 1XL and I'm so smitten with these cardigans. I can easily go down to the size XL as the stretch makes this one a little loose but I just love the softness, length and feel of these amazing cover ups. I foresee a full collection happening!


HELL BUNNY Red/Black Dot 50's Dress - SOLD OUT

This dress has been on my lust list for many years and I was lucky enough to snap one up before they sold out! Hell Bunny's classic 50's halter neck dress with a full swing skirt in a lush white and black polka dot print. Being a huge fan of all things dot related I just adore a classic print when paired with the ruby red buttons and piping make this style absolutely dreamy.

Like the Sailor Girl dress this style has a panel of sheering at the back to insure the best fit at your bust and waist plus the halter style is able to be worn high or low. 

I'm wearing the 2XL and the fit is firm but really flattering and I just adore how the bust line pops when I pair this with red cardigans and wraps. The midi length skirt also offers lots of leg coverage and heaps of fabric to twirl.

Paired with the black version of my MAK cropped cardigan for that perfect sleek pinup look with a little touch of my gothic roots.
