There'll Be Days Like This My Mama Said

 song of the day - Days Like This by The Shirelles
I love Rockabilly, and Lindy Bop do the best affordable 50's inspired dressed. So when Attitude Clothing had a sale on I had to get this. It is the Jeanette dress, and just reminds of a waitress in an American Diner. I was going to get a petticoat to wear under this as well, but I doubt I'd wear it (the petticoat) that much out and about. You can't really tell from the photos, but the buttons are heart shaped, how sweet!
Lindy Bop jeanette dress
I'm not sure if this is true for all Lindy Bop dresses, but the Jeanette does run small. This one just about fit me around the waist, so next time I buy from them I think I'll be going a size up.
curly short brown hair
A few years ago I got rid (aka lost) my curling iron and ever since I've been doing no heat curls. There are so many ways to do this, but for my hair I prefer to twirl and pin it while it's damp, and then let my hair dry naturally. This is day two hair, so the curls have dropped a little, but not my much. You can see how they looked the first morning on my instagram page.

  9. I love this dress Rubi! I too love 50s and Rockabilly. I usually shop around for affordable vintages pieces but I think I'm going to have to shop on Lindy Bop next time as you're right, the dresses are really affordable compared to most places that do vintage replicas.
