Nicole Katherine’s original dresses and separates all embody her stylistic evolution toward more classic vintage silhouettes yet each piece retains her distinct and sassy mark, from the stunning and sophisticated gray suit dress ‘Elizabeth’ and the retro flamenco-style, circle-skirted ‘Bella Muerta’ dress with matching bolero, to the nautical ‘Armada Belle’ blouse with matching side-button pants, the ‘Lauren’ pencil skirt in gray (with or without contrast pocket flaps) and the classic 1940’s ‘Lindy Blouse’ (available in fabrics from solid rust to plaid).

Fashion-conscious from a young age, while growing up in Montana Nicole was appalled by the apparel available in stores. Dismayed that the rockabilly and punk styles she loved were nowhere to be found, she enlisted her grandmother to teach her to sew and by age 13 was regularly adapting dress patterns and tweaking thrift store finds to fabricate her own custom wardrobe.

A former psychology writer, Nicole Katherine became truly enthusiastic about original clothes design after creating her costumes for Irish Dance competitions.

Pin up clothes are not meant to simply drape over a woman’s figure, hiding her for the sake of looking professional or comfortable. They’re bold, fierce and use bright colors, eye-catching patterns, and flattering corsets and pencil skirts. Pin up clothes require attitude, confidence and seductive makeup in order to rock the look with all the proper attire.

If you’re dying to try out some sexy pin up clothes, start with a flattering pin up dress from Bettie Page Clothing, Pinup Girl Clothing, Modemerr, or Stop Staring! Clothing. For sky high pumps and accessories, visit Baby Girl Boutique. No pin up clothes are complete without the right undergarments, either.

Since the military played such a large role in the vintage, retro, rockabilly and pin up era, there are many boutiques that specialize in military inspired pin up clothes, outfits and dresses. Pony Maedchen sells a wide variety of military dresses, perfect for the girl with a man in the Navy or Army, or just the girl who loves the clean lines and retro feel of classic military uniforms.

Pin up clothes are not designed to turn each woman into an exact duplicate of the next. With such a wide variety of patterns, prints, colors and styles, why would anyone want to duplicate another?

Whether you’re plus sized, extra curvy, have a voluptuous chest or don’t have any curves at all, pin up clothes can work with your body to give you a retro look that accentuates you and shows off what you have that’s worth rocking. Throw on some cat eyeliner, red lipstick and sky high stilettos and you’ve got all the ingredients to a perfect pin up outfit in no time.
