Pin up is fun and while it can be sensual, it is also whimsical. I forget that sometimes and do not focus on my smile. I notice that I have this problem in photos in general. I forget to smile. I am so focused on how I look that I forget to have fun too.
When creating a pin up look for you, think of ways to accentuate your curves. While I love flouncy swing dresses, this particular look allowed me to show off my body in a different light. Also, work with your comfort zone and level of expertise.
