It was an honor to host the owner and creator of Red Dolly Swimwear at our first show of 2015.  Red Dolly Swimwear is the local designer of our finale’s polkadot swimwear and silver and pink shimmer swimwear – all perfectly pinup and made in the USA.  Red Dolly posted our show’s first review ever on her blog and she said such wonderful things, I wanted to repost it here.  You can read her other blog posts and shop for your own pinup swimwear at


 I had the pleasure of being asked to make swimsuits for the first Pinup Pole show last year. Couldn’t make it to the first show, but was able to go to the January 24th show at the Federal bar in noho (North Hollywood)! For those of you who know me, you know I am pretty conservative, so I was a little unsure of how I’d like the show, and if I would be comfortable with my husband watching  But I wanted to support the girls and see them rock their Red Dolly Suits in person, So Me and the Hubs made a Date night out of it. <3

Miss Tonya Kay is such a great entertainer. She just has that spark. The show started with Four of the girls coming out in their retro dresses and dancing. Then Tonya had a flirty little number with this vintage camera.

Not all of the numbers include pole dancing. I thought this remake of the “I love Lucy” skit was Hilarious.

 This beauty Pageant number included two of the girls wearing their custom Red Dolly Sparkly dresses with silver bikinis under. The girls are so strong. its crazy to see what they can do on those poles!

The show is very interactive. Tonya and the girls talk to the audience between some of the set changes, and keep things lively. I even got to be a little part of the show. That’s me (far left), with two of the other girls who were voted best dressed Pinups. so fun!

The all pink bedroom scene with Tara Phillips was my favorite. She was dancing and waiting by the phone as “Wishing, Hoping, and praying” by Dusty Springfield played.

The Finale number included all the girls dancing their Red Dolly High waist bikinis. And yes, they all got on the 16 ft pole at once.. pretty amazing.  So no I did not regret taking my Husband to the show.. We had a great time. The show was fun, flirty and not sleezy in the least bit! Check out the Pinup pole show website for show dates!
