Why I love DD:  l love the way I feel when I’m wearing lingerie under my clothes. DD is able to give me that feeling but also be comfy at the same time!  My favorite piece is the Pin Up shaping panty with garters!  DD has perfected the garter panty!  Sexy and sturdy all at the same time!  (Renee’s pictured in the Dirty Dolls Pinup Garter Panty & Boudoir Corselette Bra)

Name:  Anna Patin

From:  Originally from San Francisco, now residing in Brooklyn

Interests: I love pin ups so much that I literally play retro dress up everyday with clients at my photography studio, Lucy La Riot.  Renee and I also host Brooklyn Pin Up School at the studio where we teach vintage techniques for hair, makeup, etc.  When I’m not at the studio I’m either getting in touch with my crafty side and making props/wardrobe for shoots, scouring flea markets, going to concerts with my girlfriend, or shopping for the studio’s massive wardrobe (and occasionally, mine!!)

Favorite Movies:  Elvira Mistress of the Dark, Mean Girls, and For a Good Time Call…

Favorite Books:  #GIRLBOSS, Don’t Sleep with Your Drummer, and I Am Not Myself These Days

Why I love DD: After Courtney and Erica fitted me in one of their bras, I’ve hardly taken it off!  Their lingerie is both so comfortable and also has all the little details and pops of color to make you feel sexy.  It’s so wonderful and rare to find vintage inspired lingerie that has such great fit!
