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.

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.

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.
