Planet Pinup

30 May

Since venturing down the more vintage route with my wardrobe I have become very fond of the finishing touches that help complete outfits and pull them together. And something I have become especially enamoured with is hair flowers.
This did not go unnoticed by my friend Jean, the brains and beauty behind Planet Pinup.

“Here on Planet Pinup, our favorite pastime is turning damaged vintage frocks into new fashion accessories for modern pinup girls. We also enjoy buying and wearing modern pinup dresses, practicing the perfect cat-eye, and watching groovy old movies for fashion inspiration. We also simply love kittens and beer, but never for the same meal.”

Lovely Jean offered to make me some unique hair flowers and I said my thanks with a Ryan Gosling colouring in book! She asked what kind of flowers I would like, and I mentioned that my favourite colour was turquoise, ans I left the rest up to her creative genius.

It wasn’t long before an exciting looking box arrived at my door, and in it were three gorgeous hair flowers.

The colours were absolutely spot on, and I loved the vintage jewellery pieces she added to some of the flowers. That centre on the teal was from a vintage fascinator her friend’s Mum – it fell apart but she kept the pieces. The centre piece from the blue and magenta was from a pair of antique costume earrings




The sizes were perfect, and the clips were perfectly concealed no matter which side of my head I wore the flowers.




My gorgeous new hair flowers could easily be added to a range of looks and outfits, as they do have a vintage feel to them, but they would also be perfect with a glam wedding outfit or a nice simple day dress.

They also have a brooch fastening, meaning I could add them to a bag or jacket:IMG_6489

They made a welcome addition to my ‘garden’ of accessories, and I feel sure you will see them making appearances in my forthcoming blog and outfit posts.


Planet Pinup is not only the home of beautiful unique hair flowers. Jean also makes snoods, hair scarves and hair bands. Check out here Etsy store here and keep up with her latest happenings on here Facebook page here.

Thank you for my pretty hair flowers Jean, I can’t wait to pair them with my array of dresses!

    I love these! This is a great reminder that I should be utilizing my fascinators, flowers, and vintage hats in my review shoots. Why do I have a collection if not to wear them? So thanks! You look beautiful.
