Then i thought about my friend who was really into the "rockabilly scene", so for fun I decided to look up rockabilly dresses, and let me say wow i was amazed! I didn't realize there were so many different styles out "there" to buy!
But at this stage i was somewhat overweight and didn't want to wear a dress that was tight fitting (e.g. a wiggle dress), so I narrowed it down to a swing/full skirt dress. Also I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a dress I might only wear once, then sit in my cupboard for like forever. So I decided on a budget.
From there i knew the dress i was going to buy!
|It was this dress above it's from the brand "Chic Star".|
"Chic Star" is a low budget brand that stocks repro dresses, skirts and petticoats. http://www.chicstar.com/
I've also wore this dress a year later on a cruise, and recently I've had it taken it because of my weight loss!

So for about a year now I've really started to buy reproduction dresses, skirts, tops etc that have a 50's flare and are from all different rockabilly/pinup brands!
What was your first rockabilly/pinup/50's outfit?
Until next time! Cherrymilla xo
