Rock Rockabilly, Baby!

Lovin’ all things kitschy and retro glam at the mo & looking to Grease for some style inspiration (must find me a Pink Ladies jacket!!).  All things ’50s seem to be having a fashion moment, thanks in part to the marvelous, Mad Men.  It’s got be the way the clothes in this era seemed to flatter soo many figures as well as being colourful &  beautifully made.

I’m feeling prom dresses, ankle grazer jeans, baseball jackets & cute cardies worn with sweet little ankle socks myself…you’ll look cute as a button!!

One lady who knows how to nail that rockabilly look is Liberties lass, Imelda May.   As well as having a killer voice, she has a wardrobe to die for too! She rocks unusual tight dresses (Batman,Elvis & cartoon heroes have featured on some of them!) with skull jewellery & hoop earrings.

She often picks things up in charity & vintage shops or gets dresses made especially for her. Her trademarks though have got to be her quirky quiff with a blonde streak, her feline eye liner & her rouge lipstick!!(All of which she does herself in no time!)

Here’s some bits & bobs I might want to purchase… depending obvs!!

I think I’d quite like to be as cool as Imelda & a rockabilly fashionista….
