The second section: Talent
The second section of Miss Pinup NZ was ‘Talent” ! Oh my I was so nervous, but having a rainbow petticoat and my Nans brooch gave me the confidence I needed to get up there on that stage! My talent was a “A what not to do in table etiquette”. This was quite a bit of fun to put together especially with my assistant Big Ted.
My outfit was a mixture of items I already owned and a few new sourced pieces.
My vintage Gingham dress I felt was perfect for a High Tea, paired with my classic Leg Avenue heels and a vintage Hong Kong beaded cardigan.

My rather lady like and perfect gloves were dead stock and from Tock Tick Vintage. I felt like such a lady with theses charming gloves on! My fascinator was also another piece from Tock Tick Vintage ,I felt it helped to complete my outfit perfectly.
As a sentimental gal I felt lucky to wear me Nans brooch it was like having part of my Nan there with me on the day.
The thing that truly completed this outfit was my vintage rainbow petticoat sourced by Tock Tick Vintage. Rainbows have always been symbolic for me, a sign of happiness and great things in my life. Rainbows just make me feel happy and confident!
A lot of love, care and thought went into all of my Miss Pinup New Zealand outfits as I know so did all of the girls!
I passionately feel that I should only wear items that I love, as I feel clothing can alter the way you feel about yourself an how you can represent yourself. I am a lover of true vintage pieces, I love that they have history and can be saved and loved all over again. I have a clear love of pastels, florals & sparkly things which you can see from my choices.
The reason I choose this outfit is the colours! I was saving the dress which I had been given for my birthday back in November and I had been waiting for the right occasion to wear it. I loved the contrast of the emerald green and the pinks. Plus the hat! how fabulous is the hat! Also I was able to wear my Late Nans brooch which fit perfectly for the theme of the outfit. Finally the petticoat was the finishing touch to bring out the greens! This dress is a dream to wear it is super comfortable and perfect in the colder months.
