Lauren Blair in Mary Blair: Jenny Skirt in Train Border Print

For those of you who have been purchasing from the Magic of Mary Blair Collection from Pinup Girl Clothing, how have you narrowed down your choices?  For me, my first gander at the collection was overwhelming because it was all so beautiful.  In a way, I'm glad that we had a month to stalk the collection before purchasing because it got me to narrow down my wish list...to some extent.  I still want somewhere around half of the prints, haha.  My number two wants were the Commuters Print Jenny Skirt  and the Mother and Child Jenny Skirt (ordered last night!) for mostly the same reasons: they are unlike anything in my closet.  I'm a bit of a novelty print queen so I really did want the train skirt, but I was trying to hold out because I own soooooooo many novelty print skirts.  Then I added it to my cart and started to mess around with quantities (a trick I do if I'm afraid something will sell out) and realized that there was only one left in my size, so I made an impulse purchase!  I have no regrets here!  It's a wonderful skirt and there's tons of colors to play around with while styling it in the future, which as you may know by now is my favorite thing to look for in a piece of clothing.
Other pieces that I'm hoping to score??  I REALLY want the lavender Lips and Roses print Jenny skirt because the color combo is super up my alley.  I've also fallen in love with the Planes Print Heidi dress.  And like a lot of you, I'm eagerly awaiting the (delayed until May) release of the Umbrellas print!  Everything else is so lovely, but baring from some lucky and random sale the above are the only other pieces I'm going to try to acquire.  What about you guys?  What's been your buying strategy since they're been staggering the releases and some pieces have been selling out while others have not been selling out?  I've been doing one piece at a time based on finances and availability.  Thank goodness they lowered their free shipping minimum this year!!

  1. You are right, novelty prints are the best! I have that problem too, impulse buying for fear it will be gone in my size in the next minute lol. This yellow skirt looks adorable on you and I love how you paired it with these lovely red heels. Nice poses in these photos too!

  10. The train print is my favourite of all the MB prints. :) Probably because it's such a sunny yellow! You look adorable, as usual!
