Office Pinup

Summer is over and it's time to go back to work!
Usually this would make us a little blue, but not this time, because we have some wonderful new dresses in which make us look forward to getting up each morning!

Plus, it's time to put away our summer dresses and nautical and bright floral prints, and replace them with tartans and darker florals, and all those delicious autumn and winter inspired patterns and colours. And to chase away your autumn blues, or maybe get you even more excited about the upcoming seasons, we've put together a few sets featuring pieces we just can't seem to get enough of!



We did say that we are looking forward to darker florals, didn't we? This dress is an absolute dream, and while it hugs the curves, it's still perfectly appropriate for  your every day. That, however, doesn't mean  you won't be turning heads!



And how about this gorgeous burgundy beauty? It features a velvet flocked print with a forest fairy tale scene. We added one of our favourite purses, and chose the lipstick to match. We're a bit old school that way, and like to match things, especially when it comes to blacks and reds.



We love the new tartans coming in this fall, and this dress is just perfect for those crisp fall days! We especially like the combination of red, white and green on it, which lets us pair it with all kinds of details. Of course, we still want a bit of fire in our days, so we added red details for that extra pop!



Is there such a thing as appropriate glam in the workplace? We are certain there is! A wonderful velvet-flocked skirt, a classical black cardigan... It just oozes style! And of course, adding a pair of unexpectedly eclectic heels turns that class into sass!

Are you a summer child, or do you prefer the colder part of the year?

Weekend Getaway

Summer vacations may be over, but that doesn't mean that you are bound to stay where you are until winter! Early autumn is the perfect time for a weekend getaway, preferably somewhere to the countryside where you can enjoy the pleasantly warm days, crisp, fresh nights and all the bounty nature has to offer.

And this month, we are here to help you plan your weekend escape in style! We are suggesting four outfits - for everything you might need, from country walks to romantic dinners, that are sure to make you feel and look your best.

There is nothing quite like arriving in style. We admit to have caught the pink flamingo virus going on in the fashion world this summer, and decided to go over the top with it. Sometimes you just have to indulge your girly side and go with all pink everything!




An essential part of every weekend getaway is the relaxing stroll through the countryside. We mixed and matched patterns here for a more relaxed, playful look, but kept the colours down to the classics – black, white and red.




A romantic dinner is a highlight of every weekend getaway, and we went with an Audrey Hepburn style dress and shoes you can dance in all night long.





And sometimes you just need to take a leisurely stroll through a small town and admire the shops, take in the air and find the perfect cup of tea and a dessert. Perhaps a lemon tart? This skirt really does put us in the mood for some lemon-based treats!

A Dress For Every Occasion

We all know the mythical LBD - The absolutely must have little black dress which is oh so incredibly versatile and can be dressed up or down or worn to just about any occasion.

Well, with a little tweaking, this goes for a lot of dresses, and we decided to try our hand at the whole idea. We chose a shirtwaist dress we are absolutely in love with - The Meadow Dress, and created four sets for four occasions.


The first is our casual way to wear a dress, because far too many dresses linger in the closet waiting for a right occasion. We're not afraid to pair our dress with a pair of baseball shoes and a bandana for a quick and easy style.



Of course, an occasion like a party requires a little more effort, so we added some heels, a lovely parasol to keep you safe from sunburn, and a pretty little purse that matches the overall colours.




Vamping this dress up for a night on the town was as easy as adding a higher heel and bolder jewellery (and black nail polish, because we're feeling extra vampy tonight), and a heartbreaker bag





Of course, this dress is just as suitable for your workday, especially when paired with a cute cardigan, an adorable hair clip and a purse, all decked out in cherries for extra sweetness in your day!

How To Wear Blue in Summer


Any shade of blue works for summer. Think clear blue skies to deep rolling oceans, and Rockabilly Pinup has you covered from light pastels to navy, with designs including cheerful kittens and cherries to pristine whites contrasting on different hues of blue. And for that classic look we've even thrown in a little satin.

Amelia Kitten Print Pastel Blue 50's Dress features a sweetheart neckline and a complimentary wide belt. Just grab your cardigan and heels and you're ready to go!

If you're looking for office chic then the April Cherries print dress is perfect. A classic below-knee navy blue dress with capped sleeves to keep you cool throughout the 9 to 5 grind.

We absolutely love this nautically inspired Ambleside dress. Featuring a contrast striped sailor collar and hemline with gathering in the underbust and darts to shape the waistline. Team with bright red lipstick and heels for the ultimate summer ensemble.

Ahoy there! A key print for the season featuring anchors, ships wheels and stars adorn this beautiful Hepburn dress which we have just unpacked!

The incredibly elegant blue black satin of the Selema Dress makes it a firm wardrobe favourite for any evening occasion. Draping elegantly over your hips and thighs, with a high waistband and gathered boat neckline, this dress will shine wherever you go.
