    Get the Look: Rockabilly Filly

    If this month's Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend is any indication, Rockabilly is more popular than ever. Billed as the largest Rockabilly event in the world, and the longest running music festival in Las Vegas, this is VLV's Silver Anniversary, and many of its attractions have been sold out for months!

    A sub-culture with roots in early rock 'n' roll and Western swing music, over time, Rockabilly style has evolved to encompass a wide range of edgy and kitschy fashion genres including Pin-up, Bombshell, Burlesque, Old Hollywood, Sweater Girl, Greaser, Tiki... even Punk and Goth. As THE undisputed mecca for Rockabilly enthusiasts of all stripes, VLV is unparalleled for its vintage eye candy, as fashionistas don carefully curated and dazzling looks for poolside, daytime and evening.

    Get the look with '50s full-skirted and crinolined party dresses, tight sweaters paired with curve-hugging pencil skirts, crop tops and cigarette pants, stiletto heels or wedges, all accessorized with gloves, top-handled purses, and fabulous mid-century costume jewelry. Don't forget your cherry red lipstick and cat-eye glasses!

    This '50s "Rockabilly" dress is in my closet - but it's so perfect for the theme of this week's Parade that I want to share it! Black cotton with ecru trim. I've added the jewelry that I'd wear with it - all personal collection:

    This 50s cotton strapless (or halter) sarong style dress from Hoaloha

    And the stiletto-heeled Springolators to wear with the dress

    This 50s Jantzen fitted cardigan would be perfect with a bullet bra worn underneath

    And a classic leather motorcycle jacket

    And at Etsy, a different take on the iconic Springolator, gold leather and suede, with a sturdier - but still wicked - heel.
