Hello Swimwear and Lingerie Fans!

I’m feeling a little bit fancy today, so I thought we would break from the usual incarnation of a Pin Up as defined by the not-so reliable folks at Wikipedia:

“A pin-up girl, also known as a pin-up model, is a model whose mass-produced pictures see wide appeal as popular culture. Pin-ups are intended for informal display, e.g. meant to be “pinned-up” on a wall. Pin-up girls may be glamour models, fashion models, or actresses.

The term pin-up may also refer to drawings, paintings, and other illustrations done in emulation of these photos (see the list of pinup artists). The term was first attested to in English in 1941;[1] however, the practice is documented back at least to the 1890s.”

This is a drawing and thus qualifies, however, it is of a belly dancing lady and I’m not sure that was ever a regular subject of the original Pin Up type.

Either way, she’s gorgeous and I would certainly pin up this picture alongside all of the others!

Cheers,

Maggie
