Bunny's Book Club: Va-Va-Voom

On Friday's date night I lucked out and found a copy of Va-Va-Voom! by Chris Chang with a forward by Mamie Van Doren. It is a book filled with pages and pages of pictorials of starlets from the 1920's to the 1970's as pinups. I first saw this book a few months ago and said to myself, "Oh I will get it later." Those words are dreadful ones because when you mean to get something later that item could be sold out or as in this case very expensive. Barnes and Noble had a smaller copy of the book that I now have for only seven dollars!!! On amazon they are now over thirty dollars! When I say I lucked out, I mean it! There were only three copies left in the store and this copy with eleven dollars so I just had to get it now.

If you are enamored with the past Pinups and Old Hollywood Starlets, are an aspiring modern pinup/vintage model, or just looking for some inspiration this is the book for you! I purchased this because of all the reasons I just mentioned and I am so glad I did!! I found a few photos that are the exact ones that are included in the book for you to see. If you are able to get a copy-get it! It is every vintage girls MUST-HAVE!

I hope you find these photos just as inspirational and beautiful as I do. Celebrating the beauty of women is a magnificent thing!



  1. I'm really curious to know what the foreword by Mamie van Doren had to say.

    1. Email me and I can email you what she wrote-its not too long and it wouldnt be a problem. Its retrolovinmama@yahoo.com :) xox

  2. Bunny it looks like a great book - I'm going to find myself a copy. Thanks for the heads up :)

  3. Even though I don't usually wear such revealing looks, they are thoroughly inspiring (and enjoyable to see) for sure. No matter if one's in a bikini or a snow suit, you can always garner inspiration from wonderful images like this, such as how the women posed or did their hair (or more likely, had it done). I've always though Yvonne was such a stunning knockout, so I think she's my favourite of these marvelous pinup pictures.

    Wishing you a gorgeous Wednesday, sweet Bunny!

  4. Yvonne's is my favorite too! My hubby is a big fan of hers! Thank you Jessica! xox
