50’s Pinup Girl Fashion In Canberra

By Soundbloke 1 October 2009 22

I discovered and joined this forum after recently taking up residence in Canberra. I thought I’d dedicate my first post to attempting to conclude a thus far fruitless search on behalf of my wife!

My new position here in the capital sees me attending a number of official functions with my good wife. Despite still being in her Thirties, my wife always wears mid-century styled clothing with a particular bent for the Pin-Up style of the 1950’s and she looks stunning may I add! Back in Sydney, there were a couple of shops that specialised in both formal and more casual attire in the Pin-up, rockabilly and generally very sexy 50’s styles.

Since arriving in Canberra she’s searched desperately for a shop that purveys such clothing! We’ve found a couple of collectable type shops that sell vintage clothing but none that specialise in high end items, plus she’s looking for new, top quality 50’s and 60’s style reproduction garments in particular and not only formal wear – she wears this style every day for work etc; a la Mad Men style.

Is there anything in or around Canberra? Please help me, the trips back to Sydney are costing a fortune.

All help is appreciated.

Soundbloke , Could you ,PLEASE, tell me where are those shops your wife used to buy in Sydney?
I would really appreciate it. I don’t really want to buy on-line , cause you never know what are you going to get. Thx a lot.
Ps im glad your wife found a place where to buy her clothes in Canberra
