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!
