With the sparkly season almost in full swing, it's time to get those perfect party outfits sorted out and ready. What makes an outfit special for you? The cut of a dress can really make or break the final look of a dress. Also the surface pattern and texture of the fabric play a big part in the right Christmas outfit. But it's not all about sequins and glitter when looking for the most scintillating seasonal dress. Whether you are a jive and swing fan or just love to turn heads- Rockabilly Pin Up have some of the most glamorous gowns for all shapes and sizes. Take a look at some of the new additions that have arrived just in time for Christmas!
Along with Holly and Mistletoe, Pointsetta is high on the list of Christmas plants. This delicious dress is covered in the bright red flowers! The Pointsetta SallyAnne Tea Dress by Vanity Project Limb is one of the most flattering for the season. Everything about this one piece is designed to so off your fabulous figure! From the low 'V' shaped neckline, the lightly puffed sleeves right the way down to the ultra feminine wiggle bottom! The thin matching belt in the middle cinches in the waist for the essential hourglass figure- a stunning dress suited for any shape and a must have for the big day itself!
The mint green of this dress has a freshness about it that will brighten up any room you step into! The Green Oriental Betty F Day dress by Limb has a cut that truly will turn heads! The Oriental pattern clashes beautifully against the light background. A very chic alternative to the traditional looking sequins and glitter one tends to see on dresses at this time of year. The tie belt as the waist as well as the longer sleeves are reminiscent of a traditional kimono design. The flared skirt however brings this dress right into the present.
Let your feminine curves make a real statement in this gorgeous Black Oriental Betty F Day Dress by Limb. The bright reds and whites featured in the cherry blossom pattern make for an attractive seasonal look. Like the other limb dresses there is the very figure enhancing waist details. This means that it will look superb on any shape and size, fabulous if you have curves but very sleek and sassy if you do not. The neck line has aspects to the vintage and brings a very understated chic Audrey Hepburn look to the dress. The flared out skirt is just right for dancing in too, everything about this dress says 'Fun' with a capital 'F'! Just team with your highest pair of heels and you are ready for the party of the year!

Now that the cooler days are setting in think that its time to put away those amazing dresses for the winter? Rockabilly Pin Up could not disagree with this idea more! There has never been a better time to rock those chic Rockabilly frocks. Perhaps you are looking for the perfect dress to see you through party season this year? The right outfit will be all about the figure flattering and fun aspects that it will bring. The pinched in waist, the quality lining and prints. Smaller details count towards making us Rockabilly dames look truly spectacular! Take a look at some of the very inspired dresses that will look amazing in the cooler months of the year:
|Liv's 50's Flocked Tattoo print red dress by Hell Bunny|
There is nothing quite like a tattoo print to bring the Rockabilly home. This dress features just that. Covered in the traditional Rockabilly motifs of swallows, anchors as well as horse shoes not to mention the roses and cherries too. This dress is one of the most versatile ones around, like most Rockabilly dresses it is available in a size 8 to a size 16 (18, 20 & 22 have already sold out). Wear it alone on the warmer autumnal days for a chic way to stay cool. Team it with the cutest of warm woolly shrugs for those cooler of fall evenings. The sharp neckline and colour combination make this designer dress an eye catching one. This dress comes with a cute cotton belt to pinch in the waist for that fabulous hourglass figure!
|Sassy Tropical Birds Sand 50's Dress by Hell Bunny|
For the quintessential retro dress look no further than this example from Hell Bunny. The Sassy Tropical Birds Sand dress is a must have for any vintage vixen. Take a look at that wonderfully designed bust line, it is very reminiscent of all things 1950's. Designed with a flared out A line skirt in a longer length, this dress with it's fitted top is a wonderful way to do vintage all year round. The halterneck top mean that this dress will hold you up in all the right places while being ultra flattering at the same time. Pair the Tropical Birds dress with your highest heels to paint the town red!
|Eternity Rose Red 50's Rockabilly Dress by Hell Bunny|
The perfect dress for the autumn! This gypsy rose styled dress is all things retro but with a wonderfully fitted twist! The longer length sleeves will bring warmth as well as style with it's bolero look. This dress really has it all: The sweetheart neckline and slightly ruffled shoulders to match. This decadent dress comes complete with a thick black belt as a finishing touch. The top half of the dress is fully lined, the skirt can be added to with a frilled petticoat to bring shape. Longer length dresses have more than an air of vintage elegance about them and this is so the case with this dress.

Give your look an injection of fun with this Chevrolet Car Print dress, certain to rev up some engines.
Take a gamble on the Betty Dice Dress, this pinup dress has a cute crossover sweetheart neckline and a sash tie at the waist to show off your curves in all the right places.
