The popularity of retro clothing has brought blurred or stretched definitions to retro-inspired fashion, but Doll Deluxe is the real deal. If you are drawn to garments associated with the 40s, 50s and 60s, you will love these well-made and beautiful articles of clothing offered by this small label.
The wiggle dress is the star of the Doll Deluxe collection. Each wiggle dress features the classic cut with a narrower width at the hem rather than the hips, allowing you to sexily “wiggle” when you walk. The label also has a selection of swing dresses, and they are just as impressive. In combination with flattering necklines, such as a halter or sweetheart shape, Doll Deluxe ensures your curves are hugged in only the most favorable way.

Doll Deluxe also offers a sweet collection of separates. From pencil skirts, sailor pants and swing skirts to peasant blouses, basic boatneck tops and pussy bow blouses, the possibilities to mix and match are endless. Whether you just started a pinup-inspired wardrobe or you are on the constant prowl for new retro-style additions, the clothing under this brand is versatile and easy to pair for both casual or dressier situations.

The color palette and retro-inspired prints of Doll Deluxe clothing are simple and are easily associated with vintage fashion. Gingham, polka dots and sailor stripes make a frequent appearance, but you will also find flirty designs, like cherry and hula prints.

The placement of detailing, like embroidered tattoo-style swallows, corset-like piping and peekaboo tulle, is deliberate and quite successful. These details not only enhance the garment but complement a woman’s body and personality, too.

Doll Deluxe is a great example of simple yet glamorous pinup-style clothing. Every rockabella, fiery vixen and burlesque girl should give the label a look, because most of the brand’s pieces translate well from day to night. If you live in Australia, the brand gives you the option to put items on lay by, but the website also has some great sales offered to their worldwide consumers.
Graciela Martell is the owner of the American label, more popular known as Miss Torture. Not only is her jewelry line stemmed from her own creativity, but also her love for the dark side and all things rockabilly, retro and pin up. She began the foundation of the company through a project while studying at the Fashion Institute for Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, California. For a term paper, she wrote about her ideas for a collection and the influences for it through horror and the gothic scene. Through this research emerged the name “Torture Couture.”
Her inspiration for Torture Couture also comes from music, old Hollywood glamour, vintagefashion, and even bizarre dreams of her own. The subject of horror and death is shown through the gems used in various pieces, with a girly design and fresh breath of glitz and glamour surrounding it. In the shop you’ll find an elegant string of pearls topped by a skeleton head in a feminine wig. You’ll also find a “Miss Zombie” piece that consists of a chain and pink girly bow. The Frankenstein ring channels the monster from the original book, surrounded by a delicate silver base and dainty, twinkly blue stones.
Not only are the styles of the chains, pearls, bracelets, rings, hats and hair pieces perfectly designed to channel the imagery that comes with the name Torture Couture, but the names for the pieces perfectly suit each one. Dark Skulls Rose bracelet, Deadly Dice bracelet, the Looks That Kill necklace, and Make You Bleed ring are just a few examples of what you’ll find in the shop.
Morbid yet elegant glamour is the key to style at Torture Couture. Simple strings of pearls, dainty gems and giant skulls make up many of the pieces. All pieces are handmade to order, long lasting, and available at very affordable prices. Over the next few years, Torture Couture has plans to expand into an entire fashion line as well, so keep your eyes peeled for gothic, rockabilly and elegant fashion for women of all ages, styles and sizes.
Voluptuous, sensual and decidedly feminine, modern pinup fashion is a fresh and sexy take on the classic pinup girl look immortalized by models from Betty Grable to Bettie Page and by pinup artists like Gil Elvgren and Alberto Vargas.

Retro, sweet and innocent pinup swimsuits take on a rockabilly edge when paired with lots of ink, a sense of camp and candy-colored hair. But pinup fashion today can be as classic and classy as modern burlesque performer Dita Von Teese’s style and as filled with glamour as Hollywood in the 1930s.
Let’s face it, fashion today fits very few real ladies and who has time to work out 4 hours a day eating only broth for muscles like Madonna’s? More importantly: who really wants to look like an emaciated bodybuilder when they can work with what they were born with and be sexier without all the fuss and hunger pangs. Modern pin up fashion stores like Pin Up Couture, Dismantled Fashions and Bernie Dexter Clothing are here to the rescue providing perfect pinup styles for ladies big and small.
Pulling off pinup fashion takes guts. Covering looks from smoking-hot calendar vixen to downright demure girl-next-door, pinup fashion works with a woman both inside and out. Personality comes first when choosing a pin up outfit. Are you a glamour-puss? Don a satin bombshell with matching high, high heels like Whirling Turban’s Chinese Bombshell Dress. Are you naughty yet nautical? Then squeeze into the ‘Hello Buoys’ wiggle dress from designer Moxie Minx. Feeling daytime-cute and authentically retro? Slip on a Vivien of Holloway Day Dress with a square neck and circle skirt made from vintage patterned cotton.
Once the style has been selected, the classic design and tailored fit of modern pinup clothing hugs, squeezes, pushes, lifts and lets wiggle free the most sexual parts of the female body exposed for all the world to see and admire. Pinup fashion creates a slim waste and an hourglass shape while lending a nostalgic flavor to its teasing sex appeal. Who would think that so little skin shown could imply so much? But rather than hitting you over the head with body exposure, a true pinup look takes its heat from innuendo and lets the imagination do the rest.
