Christmas Day Dresses at Rockabilly Pin Up

What will you be doing on the 25th of December this year? Perhaps you will be entertaining friends and family with a huge Christmas dinner? Maybe you will be snuggling up with your other half in front of the sofa? You might even be invited to the Christmas day party of the century at a friends house. In any case you will want to impress, and what better way to do it than with a stunning gown from Rockabilly Pin Up? These are dresses to really flatter the figure, no matter what your body shape happens to be- an hourglass figure will always turn heads in any crowded room. If you are looking for inspiration, here are just some ways that you can get your Rockabilly on in time for Christmas day...


Red & Green Rose Floral Rosetta Swing Dress by Lady Vintage 
Gone are the days when florals were frumpy, now they are anything but! This stunning Red & Green Rose Floral Rosetta Swing Dress by Lady Vintage is an ideal example. Pinched in at the waist with a secure waist band, the knee length skirt is perfectly flared and adds to the feel of a much narrower waist. A very clever tailoring trick used by Christian Dior in the 1940's, and one that is used to this very day. With a sense of Parisian chic about it, this Lady Vintage creation is one of the many very wearable dresses available at Rockabilly Pin Up. 


Teal Green Butterfly Rosetta Swing Dress by Lady Vintage  
There's nothing better than adding a petticoat to a dress for added volume, particularly if the dress happens to already have a flare to it. This undergarment in itself is a very vintage element that is back in vogue. The flared out skirt will naturally have a playful bounce making it into a statement dress instantly. A must have if you will be strutting your stuff this Christmas and looking to make an impression on that special someone. With a sweet butterfly print and superb tailoring, the Teal Green Butterfly Rosetta Swing Dress by Lady Vintage is already a vibrant one. But with the addition of a matching petticoat it becomes simply showstopping- ideal for Christmas! 


Black Rosetta Swing Dress by Lady Vintage 
A sleek LBD is always a good idea for any gathering, but what about a Rockabilly version of the Little Black Dress for a get together? Mix Audrey Hepburn's Breakfast at Tiffany's style with a serious dose of the timeless and you will have the Black Rosetta Swing Dress by Lady Vintage. It has a classical silhouette and folds in all the right places, there is also of course the very flattering cinched in waistline too. Wear this dress alone or with a single string of pearls and heels for an outfit that needs no introduction. An amazing outfit that will never go out of fashion. 

With the big day just around the corner, Rockabilly Pin Up have dresses that will certainly make an impression.

It's Party Time at Rockabilly Pin Up!

The season of parties is fast approaching, with Halloween only a fortnight away. Even if you aren't going out trick or treating this year, the chances are that you will have an invite to that chic party or drinks with friends for All Hallows Eve. Then there will be Christmas and New Years, not to mention the infamous seasonal work do. Chic is the way to go for the beginning of party season and beyond. That means picking out an outfit that will be totally figure flattering. You will want to show off your best assets, especially if one happens to have their eye on a special someone. This can be difficult with so many shapes and styles of dresses available, so to help you decide, here are a few of the new additions at Rockabilly Pin Up...


Vanessa Low Cut Wiggle Dress by Lindy Bop
One just cannot go wrong with the LBD. Fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld himself is quoted as saying "One is never over-dressed or underdressed with a Little Black Dress". How true he is! A black dress will not only have a fabulous slimming effect, but it can also give the wearer a silhouette to die for. No girl's wardrobe is truly complete without one. Well Lindy Bop have created this wonderful LBD with a truly flattering twist. Not only is there a sense of all things vintage, but find a lovely contrasting ruffle at the breast. A wonderful addition if you happen to have a smaller chest, but also for the lovely larger ladies too. This detail will only accent the curves that you have! Pinched in at the waist with a thin belt, you will be the envy of all!

Selema Blue Black Satin  Dress by Lindy Bop
Sticking with the theme of the LBD- This is a party dress with more than a hint of the Rockabilly. The silky black satin falls beautifully with every move that you make. There is a flattering gather at the bust that is so reminiscent of Hollywood glamour. It's the pinched in waistband and flared A-line skirt that make the Selema satin dress a dramatic one. Perfect year round, it's everything you will need for that very stylish night out. Wear with a piece of statement jewellery or a hair piece and some heels and you are good to go for evening glamour.

Ophelia Plum Butterfly Rockabilly Dress by Lindy Bop
A cute ditsy print, petticoat and ruffle detail at the bust make the Ophelia Plum Butterfly Rockabilly Dress by Lindy Bop super lush! Butterflies and delicate flowers adorn this knee length number. The fitted bodice adds shape along with the structured collar that extends all around the back too. An essential flared A-line skirt is there combined with the petticoat, these both add a lovely 'swish' sound as one walks in it. Although sleeveless, you can match it up with one of Rockabilly Pin Up's sweet cardigans to stay warm when it's cold outside. A lovely dress that can work just as well in the winter for a quirky twist on party wear.

Whether you are preparing for a special event or just want to be ready for the season, Rockabilly Pin Up will have something gorgeous for you every time!
