Rockabilly Pin Up Girls!

Have you overindulged over the festive season? Added on a few extra pounds over Christmas and New Years? Many of us girls have added to our curves this winter. But this certainly doesn't have to be a bad thing- especially not in out opinions at Rockabilly Pin Up!

Although January is the month when new gym memberships will be at an all time high, it might be worth taking a moment to remember all those more curvier Pin Ups. The leading ladies who have graced the screens and fashion magazines over the years. Here are just a few of the most well known

Marilyn Monroe: 
The quintessential pin up, the I.T girl of the 1950's and 60's Marilyn Monroe was synonymous with scandal and some of the worlds most famous men. Her -girl-next-door good looks won her critical acclaim along with that romantic girlish whisper of a voice. Marilyn Monroe invented the American Dream Girl with all these attributes. Known for being a natural beauty too, she was said to have been a size 14. So she certainly was all woman! And her popularity only grew throughout here career as she continued to make movies alongside her modelling. Linked to president John F Kennedy and actor Marlon Brando!

Elizabeth Taylor: This British Born American actress was known for her curvaceous allure as well as the scandal that followed her throughout her career. But her strong Brunette good looks won hera wolrdwide following. Revered like Marilyn Monroe as a natural beauty, Elizabeth Taylor had it all and she did it all looking sexy too! So successful in fact that she managed to amalgamate a huge collection of jewellery given to her as gifts by the men in her life. Most notably by actor Richard Burton. Her lifestyle and early looks continued to be an inspiration to millions until her death. But there's no mistaking that Elizabeth Taylor was a true Pin Up.

Shelley Winters: This American actress graced the stage and screen for well over 50 years. She like her more well known rivals stars in dozens of films and accrued a whole host of awards. Although not the most well known of Pin Up's she was like them a natural and curvy beauty. Shelley Winters attracted a whole host of leading Hollywood men to her door including James Bond actor Sean Connery and Burt Lancaster as well as Errol Flynn. Alongside these affairs she was married four times! At a size 14 to 16 she was what some would consider 'on the larger side' but boy was she a bombshell!

Kelly Brook: There is no better modern role model for young budding Pin Up's nowadays than Kelly Brook. The stunning underwear model has everything a pin up girl needs! Those sensational curves that give her amazing shape, those flawless good looks too. She has been linked to actors Billy Zane and Jason Statham so like the pin ups that have come before she has her fair share of scandal i her love life too. Independent, stylishly fierce and ambitious Kelly Brook is a superb Pin Up!

Bags and Boleros at Rockabilly Pinup!

So Christmas and New Years are over, we are in the middle of a freezing, dreary January, many of us back to the usual 9-5. Many of us are also horrendously in debt after spending a fortune over Christmas and New Years.  But there's no need to wallow in the depths of despair for too long! Rockabilly Pin Up have a sale! With 20% and more of all T-Shirts and selected accesories there is now even more of a reason to spoil yourself this New Year. Take a look at the Rockabilly Pin Up sale in full here:

Top New Additions at Rockabilly Pin Up!
As you know there are always so many great additions to the Rockabilly website. But I particularly adore the new range of Bags and Boleros that have been arriving since December. These are two of the of the most essential accessories any Pin Up girl needs to look hot! Here are a few of my favorites so far:

Picking out that perfect dress is easy- we girls know what we love when it comes to our Rockabilly outfit. That sleeveless dress is the quintessential 1950's housewife and pin up look, it without fail looks great on anyone no matter what size or shape! That mid length skirt and hemmed in waistline are all characteristic of the look that we all want.

Perfect for your January parties and even the odd impromptu picnic here and there. But what about when there is that afternoon chill? Do you really have to compromise on style by pulling on that big chunky anorak? or misshapen and moth-eaten cardigan just pulled out of your wardrobe?  There is only one way to warm up when wearing your pretty Rocka dress and that is with one of our very cute boleros!

Green Leopard Print Bolero by Banned 
These fitted jackets/cardigans are the most suitable companion in our opinion. Why? Firstly they are gorgeous and feel great when worn. Just slip one on over one's shoulders when feeling a little chilly.
A light and easy alternative to a chunky cardigan for those outdoor evening soiree's. These stunning leopard print and scarlet red Bolero designs by Banned will make sure your glamorous outfit will still ooze sex appeal!

The 1950's were a time when style really came into its own. Clothing was for the first time bought as 'ready-to-wear' items. Rockers and Beatniks were first allowed to express their styles easily now that the world was not going through a wartime. Diners, Chevrolets and all things atomic became iconic of this period of time. The range of new bags recently listed at the Rockabilly Pin Up website are designed to reflect these elements, they are seriously hard to resist! One particularly adorable example is the Femme Fatale Shiny Black Bag by Lux Deville!  It has instant vintage appeal with the black clip frame design! The patent black quilted effect adds a touch of motoring luxury! The metallic edging is reminiscent of the chrome fittings on your pride and joy!
