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…..money depending obvs!!

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

Stylish Sista: Kesha

check out my armpit!

 

Fair play to Kesha, not only is she riding high in the charts with her infectious tunes but she’s also single-handedly increasing make-up sales the world over!! She’s got that glitter on her eyes…and well most of her face- okay than everywhere! More is more for Kesha & her outrageous make-up is a sure-fire way to make you stand out from the crowd.

Glad someone’s found some new fab looks for us to covet, rather than the reliable but slightly worn-out smokey-eye look. Is anyone brave enough to give it a go though? Perhaps, I’ll go all out & give it a whirl this Saturday!! Anyhoo, if anyone fancies recreating Kesha’s marvellous make-up, check out BarryM who do a range of the brightest, glitteriest eye-shadows EVER! (they have some tutorials on their website too if you’re into that sort of thing!)

Last of the mohicans?surely not!

 

While I’m lovin the make-up, I’m not so convinced about the old mohican-mainly because I would look RIDICULOUS & it looks like a whole lotta effort & hairspray! But for an awards ceremony it looks immense (maybe not for who evers stuck sitting behind you though..)- I think a small quiff would work just as good for real-life & majorly reduce hairspray fume emissions..result!!

'I gots style'

Kesha’s a bit underrated in the snobby fashion style stakes, in my opinion.  I for one am slightly fed-up with the usual suspects  that all the magazines seem to worship-the bondage dress, nude court shoe & giant hair brigade. It’s yawn inducing. To get you some Kesha-like style you gonna need you some:

-levi cut-offs (try Urbanoutfitters)

-Slashed band tees ( Truffleshuffle do some good uns’!)

-Ripped tights/fishnets

-Sequined anything!!

– Banged up cowboy boots

– Bangin’ bangles, knuckle dusters, cool chains, earrings & feathers galore! 

Who says you can have too many accessories? Well,pfiff to them!

More is deffo more in her case…& I likey!!

Hope Kesha keeps her fantabulous glungy look up for yonks! 😉

Stylish Sista : Hayley Williams

Candyfloss hair

Anyone who can carry off yellow eyeshadow, neon drainpipes & baggy hoodies is alright in my book! What’s even more impressive is that she manages to look perfect while rocking out & sweating buckets…irritating!

Rocking the red carpet

What’s EVEN more amazing is her magical rainbow hair! I heart it-granted walking down my street with orange hair would attract disapproving glares & I would most probably look like a complete tool but still…I love it on her. Major hair crush alert!

My fave Hayley looks though have to be her award ceremony outfits, fusing bright eye-catching dresses with rock chick attitude-RESPECT! She always mixes it up & deffo never gets stuck in a style rut.

No wonder she looks smug…darn that girl looks good!!;D X
