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!

Last minute Halloween

We here at Rockabilly Pinup are all up in a tizzy over Halloween!  We've been racking our brains for days trying to decide on the perfect Halloween costume, but we have been so spoiled for choice! We also wanted to have a costume that we could put together from our own closet, and look stylish in, so we sat down and came up with 4 costume ideas from classic to the more unusual and are now sharing them with you.

We can't think of a more appropriate Halloween costume than a witch! The novelty print dress is full of seasonal spirit, but if you are a Rockabella of a creepy bent, you can wear it the year round. If you don't have a Halloween print dress on hand, a simple black dress will do. All this outfit really needs is a small witch hat. The broom is entirely optional.

The Mime is always a very easy last-minute costume to put together. All you really need is a striped top, a beret and a bandanna. You can even forgo the white face paint and opt for a more toned-down look.  You can swap out this dress for a pair of capris and one of our striped tops for a more authentic look.

Alice in wonderland is a great example of a small white cocktail apron doing wonders (we refuse to apologize for this pun).  Any dress in a solid blue or teal colour will do, and if you don't have a pair of queen of hearts heels, you can always make do with a pair of flats. Tuck a pair of playing cards in the waistband of the apron and tie a white ribbon as an Alice band, and you're good to go!

We left the Little Red Riding Hood for last. The owl and forest themed dress, paired with a wicker basket and a red hooded cape may not be the easiest costume to pull together last minute, but any of our pretty  patterned dresses combined with a red hood will do. Now all you need is your big bad wolf!

Miss Muffet Skirt Halloween Outfit - VenusMantrap

We love this Halloween inspired outfit.  We skirt is embroidered with cobwebs and spiders and is perfect with the polkadot top.  As it gets chilly add a gorgeous black cardigan with cute bats embroidered on the chest and sleeves.
