Pinup Styling #1: Pink & Red Ruffles with Ella

Posted on January 03 2017

I fell in love with these images I was tagged in last month on Instagram, so much so I just had to create a blog post around them to show you how beautiful they are! Baby pink and red is also my all time favourite lingerie colour combination, and with Valentines Day on the way, what could be more perfect?



The lovely Ella Lugosi wears my Handmade by My Retro Closet Jayne Open Babydoll in baby pink, paired with red lingerie and fluffy slippers mules. I need this look for myself!


The Jayne Open Babydoll - Multiple Colours Available - £55


My Jayne Open Babydoll is based on one of my favourite 1950s/60s styles, which you can see HERE in a previous blog post. It's a pinup perfect style and great for photo shoots like this as it provides a vibrant colour pop and some pretty texture with those mini mesh ruffles!


The Jayne Ruffle Lingerie Set - Multiple Colours Available - £75

fOOfOO Slippers -£130


Part of my newest handmade collection Jayne, you can buy a totally adorable matching lingerie set. It even comes in red, so you can copy Ella's look for yourself! Finish this with a pair of fOOfOO Slippers, the ultimate fluffy slipper mules, and you've got yourself a retro lingerie look that'll break hearts!



Fear not pinups! If baby pink and red aren't your thing, or if you're shopping for a gift, you can't go wrong with classic black! Luckily for you, all my Handmade by My Retro Closet pieces are available in all black and I just love these bespoke fOOfOO Slippers with a black velvet mule and a baby pink sheepskin upper. SO dreamy!

I hope you enjoyed this lingerie styling post, it's always so lovely to see people taking their My Retro Closet goodies on shoots with them. It means so much to me and I always do a little happy dance when I get tagged in new photos, especially those as beautiful as Ella's.
