Black Friday Snags

In addition to my Catch of the Day purchases, I also ordered some tops and accessories from Doll Me Up on Black Friday. Normally, Doll Me Up’s prices are perfect for my budget anyway but on Black Friday, everything was 60%. I could not pass it up.

I ordered this beautiful pink top that, truly, goes with everything in my closet. The fit is perfect and I love the fabric. I purchased the mermaid brooch as well and love the glittery black against the pink.

My only issue was the sheerness, I tend to wear camisoles under my tops anyway but it still bothered me to have my skin show through.

I also purchased a white peasant top (my first!). I was concerned about the fit because they only had a 2X available at this price (I paid $4.99 for this) but it fit just right.

I paired it with my Sky Blue Jenny skirt from Pinup Girl Clothing and immediately felt like a Disney princess.

My husband was gone when I tried this on so I took full advantage of walking around and enjoying the feel of this outfit with no one to judge me!

The cat pin really gives me a laugh because you can see the star for his bottom. I absolutely love pins and this is a great addition to my collection.

By far, these were my favorite purchases and I now have a complete top collection to go with my skirts and trousers. It has only been a few months and already my wardrobe is completely changed!

In terms of vintage style, I try to not be too busty. But when you get into the vintage world, you get mixed up in the pinup/rockabilly style as well. So it never hurts to try something a little different. That’s why I purchased this light blue cross top from Doll Me Up.

At the time of purchase, my bust measurement was way off. I was going by my previous bra sizing and not actually measuring myself, so I purchased a size 2X when an XL or 1X would have been a better size.

The top slips on, no zipper, so the silhouette is very nice. The spandex blend used gives the top a lot of stretch which is why this size was too big on me. I’m able to sew so I might do some alterations of my own in order to keep this top.

Though the top is rather busty, I was able to wear a strapless bra to keep myself up and confidently covered. If I had gotten my correct size, the built-in bra may have been enough to keep the girls in check but alas, I wouldn’t know.

For my first purchase from the site, I had an extremely pleasant experience. I would have exchanged the top but in my personal opinion, its better to not spend money to send something back when you can adjust it yourself. The shop is absolutely wonderful and has amazing deals on a lot of vintage/pinup/rockabilly styles.
