When I received this new dress, Delilah, from Dilly Dolls, I was inspired to try to style it as a Rockabilly look. I have been seeing tons of blog posts for the Vintage Fair, but nothing Rockabilly…so here is my attempt 🙂 What is Rockabilly? Well, modern day Rockabilly style imitates and somewhat modernizes the original style worn in the 50’s. The original Rockabilly style was made popular by artists such as Elvis, Buddy Holly, and Bill Haley that sang music that was a combination of Rock and Hillbilly (Country). Delilah is the perfect dress for Rockabilly. It has the sweetheart bodice with a touch of cheetah print, and a nice full skirt that accentuates a tiny waist. My hair is Pin Up from Vanity Hair. This is called a Victory Roll Hairstyle. The name comes from a fighter pilot maneuver, and was a wildly popular style in the 50’s. Ladies would sleep with pin curls in their hair all night that would result in rolls in the hair. The rolls would then be pinned into elegant styles. My tattoo is “Such is Life” by Glue Ink. My retro sunglasses are from Dark Mouse. My pearls are from Earthstones and my skin is from Exodi.
