Evening Winter Wardrobe

With the cold evenings upon us it can be hard to imagine what to wear on a night out other than an oversized jumper!  Fear not, we have put together a few key looks to keep you feeling fancy.  They can be worn with cute tights, a warm coat or even a posh hat.



You can't go wrong with navy,  this slim fit Vanessa Wiggle dress is sexy yet has a festive feel with a bit of red contrast with the belt and ruched crossover bust.  We teamed with the matching accessories, a faux leather coat and a slip on heel all featured on our Polyvore pages.


Off to the theatre or panto this Christmas?  Then we have the perfect ensemble for you.  This elegant Bella Teal Swing Dress by  Lindy Bop can be dressed up or down.  We have paired it with a modern clutch, suede peep-toes and evening shawl but could also work for the annual mum school get-together with lippy and a pair of pumps.


If cute prints or characters are your thing,  then we have this beautiful Audrey Owl Print Swing Dress, combine various winter styles to pick up the  colours on this dress to give you 5 different outfits.

All dresses featured are available on www.rockabillypinup.co.uk.

Oh kitten!

We're big fans of cats, kitties and kittens. We've been known to utter the phrase: "Are you kittin' me ?!" on more than one occasion and only half jokingly.

In fact, we write most of our blog posts with a kitty in our lap, and still it didn't ever occur to us to dedicate a whole blog post to what we consider to be the best relaxing companions ever. Well, until now that is.

We stocked up some new cat-print dresses in the store, and used them as inspiration to feel all kinds of lovely as the days get colder and we start spending more time indoors with a cup of tea, a good book and a cat in our lap. It would be just too easy to get in a frumpy sweater and some slacks and hibernate until spring, but we pinup gals are made of sterner stuff!

We don't know about you, but a wiggle dress is always bound to improve our mood, and this kitten print one is just what the doctor ordered.  With a cool blue paired with chic black, this very vamp dress gets a new, playful side thanks to the playful kittens chasing yarn on it! Pair with gold and black details for a very classical look.




Speaking of classical- seamed stockings! We picked up a pair of black RHT stockings with a red seam, because frankly, what can suit a dress of red and black better? We knew this playful and cute dress needed just that extra little something to push it into the vamp direction, and we found it with red nail polish, black stiletto booties and a ring from our sister site.



But sometimes, you just want to go for the classics.  A front tie top is just the perfect match fr this black skirt adorned with a pink and purple kitten pattern. We added a polka dot bandana for that proper vintage look and a pair of cluster earrings to match the skirt pattern colours.



We totally ran wild with pink here. Pink earrings, pink cardigan, pink lipstick and even pink sunglasses to perfectly set off the powder blue dress and heels. This soft coloured dress can only benefit from bolder accent pieces as it brings out the unique combo of playfulness and elegance in it. Just like a cat, when you think about it!



Don't forget you can see all the details of the sets on our polyvore page!

Party Season Style

With the end of the year a few weeks away our social lives get a surge of invites for dinners, drinks and family gatherings.  We have put together some key style tips and created some inspirational looks on Polyvore.

Create magical memories in the elegant purple Ophelia Dress by Lindy Bop, adorned in cute Alice in Wonderland characters.  We teamed this classic swing dress with aqua accessories for a bright and bold look.


If seductive and sultry is more your style then take a look at the Keely dress by Hell Bunny.  This dress can be transformed from office girl to super vamp with a shoe swap and curling tongs.

Last but not least if you are having a bad day, or feeling the bloat then the fail-safe little black dress is your wardrobe rescue.  Slimming and simple this black beauty will make you feel the part before you have fastened the final button.  Mix and match with tights, heels and bright lippy for an instant pick me up!
