When we first heard the announcement that Pinup Girl Clothing was releasing an Elvira line, our hopes were for a new black dress (or two) to add to our fall wardrobe. And now that the line has *officially* launched, it is SO MUCH better than we could have imagined. The Elvira line isn’t something that we will pack away after October either.

Pinup Girl Clothing’s designer, Laura Byrnes, tells HelloGiggles,

With solid blacks, reds, and purples, the Elvira line of dresses are perfect investment pieces for a darker wardrobe. As the Mistress of the Dark herself, Cassandra Peterson, tells us, “Black is the new black!” She also told HelloGiggles that Laura included her on picking all of the sketches, making for a truly collaborative line.

The Elvira Line from Pinup Girl Clothing is the perfect choice for the year round scream queen.

So would the reigning Queen of Halloween wear the line? Of course! She told us,

Sheer panels and form-fitting bodices evoke Elvira-level vampiness throughout the line. We love that every dress in the collection is wearable without feeling like an Elvira costume.

Pinup Girl Clothing’s motto is “couture for every body,” and the dresses run from XS to 4X. We love that the fashion brand is not only size-inclusive but the clothes are extremely well made. Basically, Laura’s expertise in design, fabric, and the female form translate into structured pieces that flatter every body.

Whether you are looking for a daring formal gown or want to vamp up your work wardrobe, the Elvira line has you covered.

Cassandra also recently released a line of jewelry from Sweet Romance that she wore alongside her Elvira Dress. Her favorite piece in the collection is the Elvira ring trio, which is only $26. We already have our wallets out.
