For the month of June friends and I decided to make June the month of #JennyJayneJune- meaning each day in June we’d wear either a Jenny Dress, Jenny Skirt or Jayne dress from Pinup Girl Clothing! over the last year and a half I have been collecting Jenny skirts (after realizing can *fit* into the 2x in most) and Jenny dresses because they came available in plus sizes! While I haven’t purchased any Jayne dresses (I don’t really ‘do’ wiggles) I am so excited to be apart of fun fashion/fatshion challenge! a few of my pieces are now considered ‘unicorn status’ because of them no longer being in production and rarely available on ebay or swap pages-I’ll try not feature those as I know how much it sucks to love something not available anymore.
First up is one of my favorite pairings! I only recently in the last few months purchased the ‘original harlequin’ print from PUG- and paired it with literally my favorite top of 2014/2015- Sabrina top also from PUG. I LOVE the pinks together and split that up with a solid black wide belt also from PUG. The Sabrina tops go well with EVERY SINGLE SKIRT EVER. In both of these I am taking a 2XL where as with the belt I size up to a 3X.
Next in my #JennyJayneJune challenge was a first time pairing and wearing! I paire my 3XL Jenny Dress in Solid Black, with my Her Universe X-Wing Cardigan in navy and pieced with this a navy wide belt from PUG in 3XL. I had been the temperature inside a taun-taun (Luke-Warm heeyo) with Her Universe- I find their shipping outside of the USA to be really costly and I really dislike how nothing ever restocks despite the item selling out that said when more pieces were being offered in plus size, and being a star wars fan I wanted this cardigan (I also wanted the Hoth dress, however, the 3x fits hilariously small and will be turned into a lovely skirt). The cardigan is VERY well made. The buttons don’t feel cheap, the fabric doesn’t feel cheap, the embroidery is also nice with no threads poking out anywhere- for $50 (well $70 when you factor in shipping to Canada and no, I won’t be thinking of the CAD conversion or the duty because then it suddenly becomes a freaking $110 cardigan and that is just stupid) I’m happy with it! and I like how it fits my really short waist. The Dress can be found here: Black Jenny Dress and the cardigan can be found here: X Wing Cardigan
Pinup Girl Clothing has partnered up with a wonderful artist named Stephanie Buscema- the first collaboration was done in 2014 with a Jenny Dress and Jenny Skirt in a Snow-White print, as well as the Lydia and Mexican skirt in an adorable Mermaid print. This was my 2nd Jenny dress purchase and I absolutely love the colors (so many options for cardigans, belts, shoes, brooches!). I did pair this with a cropped red cardigan from Forever21- which is super long gone, but I have an alternate for you 🙂 my brooch is also a purchase from a great Etsy seller I discovered last year as well- Poison of Choice Brooches and more! you might have seen Yuliana’s work over for sale on the PUG website as well as for sale in a few of the Tatyana stores in Las Vegas. I have quite a few Poison of Choice pieces and I absolutely love them all! the poison apple brooch is PERFECT for the SnowWhite Jenny dress and skirt! you can find the Snow White Jenny here and the alternate cropped cardigan I mentioned here.
the final two pieces I wore for #JennyJayneJune are SO much fun- the Oranges Jenny skirt literally just came out in sizes 3-4X- I sized up to a 3X in this and while it’s an inch or so too big, there is just no chance the 2X would have fit comfortable (I have friends who have it and it measures 37 inches). The Oranges Jenny skirt IS shorter compared to other Jenny skirts but is similar to the Trains, Commuter, Alice in Wonderland aka shorter lengths. I paired my green Sabrina top and black wide belt also from PUG to complete my look- I will say the green Sabrina seems shorter to the others, I felt it kept riding up? in anycase it’s perfect for being tucked into a skirt, for example, not sure how it would work for me and pants-so it will remain a top for skirts. You can find the skirt here and the top here. Last piece! the Commuters Jenny Dress- also sized into a 3X with this (I might sound like a broken record- but in all Jenny dresses I size into a 3X). I LOVE the Mary Blair collection, I wish it would continue and have even more pieces! I actually really like the olive color and the print reminds me of my grandma (shout-out to hip grannies!) the Commuters Jenny dress can be found here
