Rockabilly Dresses

Wear More Dresses- and Skirts!

One of my big goals for this year is to wear more dresses (and skirts)- ALOT MORE!!  Of coarse it goes without saying, coming from me, that it is Rockabilly dresses I mean to wear.  I’ve been kind of a lazy dresser this last year- wearing my jogging clothes a lot because I try to walk all over the place so often, or I wear my jeans rolled up with a t-shirt or shirt covered by a cardigan or hoodie.  I’ve let my excuses of -not getting “dressed up” because I have nowhere to go, this is just comfortable, or I look fat in dresses-   make my clothing choices for me.  NOT ANYMORE!  This year I’m going to be “dressed up” for no reason, find flattering styles, and get comfortable in dresses.  I have loved 50’s style dresses my whole life, I even wore a poodle skirt for Halloween in 5th grade, and I had a big pink gingham swing dress in middle school that was my absolute favorite- BUT because it wasn’t the “norm” other kids would make comments which made me uncomfortable in dresses.  Well now that I’m way beyond school days and learned to love being different… it’s time to finally put the excuses away and go back to what I love!! So this year i Vow to buy AND WEAR  a lot more dresses…. (and of coarse I have to buy more shoes to go with every color!) 

So here are some of my Favorite Rockabilly Dresses, by some of my Favorite Brands:

About Rockabelle Bombshell

I am a single mom of a 13 yr old boy and 6 yr old girl. I love DIY projects of all types, and everything Rockabilly! I love the Icons of the 50's, as well as classic cars, pinups, retro appliances and decor, and victorian gothic furniture. I think of myself as a tattooed 1950's transplant... definitely born in the wrong era! I love thrifting and "junking"- I rarely see junk, I see things for their possibilities! I started this blog to document my DIY adventures as I attempt to upcycle and recreate my furniture and home decor, add a Rockabilly touch to as much clothing as I can, make life fun for my kids, and share my love of Rockabilly!

  1. the spider print one is amazing! i have been making more of an effort to dress up too, my ultimate goal is to mostly purge pants from my wardrobe, maybe a couple pairs of pedal-pushers and one pair of jeans. good luck and have fun!

    • Me too, I only have a few pair of jeans I wear because they’re the only ones that can be rolled up, but Pinup Girl Clothing has some super cute pedal-pushers I really want, and I’d love to get them in every color they have:)
