Style Steal - Perfect Pastels



Perfect Pastels






We simply adore this cute 50s floral number that the fabulous 
Eva Mendes is wearing! Teamed with the dinky pastel clutch and nude headband she looks the epitome of elegance! Flared silhouettes are super flattering and suit almost any figure, whilst the kitsch dark floral shade adds striking interest and works well teamed with pastel accessories. So why not try this quirky retro look yourself?  We've styled out Firework Print Dress with our Nude Clutch Bag , Gold Sunburst Ring and Green Art Deco Hair Clips and accessorised with a mint court shoe (Ravel Hamden Court Debenhams). With its eye popping print and contrasting colour combinations, the overall effect is cute and kitsch. Which as retro enthusiasts, is always a good thing...

How To Wear - Power Prints

How To Wear - Power Prints

Here at rock my vintage we are all about funky retro prints and busy patterns 
but understand that styling them and pairing them with other outfits can 
sometimes become quite frankly downright exhausting!

Clashing colours and patterns can work well but if you want to keep it subtle and 
elegant the key is to style them with muted or neutral accessories. Metallic's work well,
like our silver 'Vintage Shell Clutch' because not only does it still stand out against
the fabric it also compliments a busy pattern, rather than distracting your attention away from the print.

We have paired our 'Long Sleeved Floral Dress' with minimal dainty accessories, 
and added a hint of colour for interest with our 'Green Art Deco Earrings' and 
Steve Madden shoes. We've teamed this with our delicate 'Vintage Silver Ring'

Style Steal - Practical Magic



We all love a bit of nostalgia and 'The Craft'  sums up everything we love about nineties Gothic fashion! From the studded chokers, thick black eyeliner, plaid and of course 
lots of little black dresses.  It is also an awesome Halloween film and makes a 
stylish, badass costume!


Therefore we thought we'd share some of our devilishly tempting Gothic goodies! Introducing our grungy embroidered flapper dress, dramatic cameo choker,  
glamorous Art Deco Clutch, unique Tatty Divine Palmistry necklace and spellbinding
 Gold and Black Deco Ring.

1920s




Featuring: Louise Brooks (Lauren Isaacs Vitello) & Bee Jackson (Flickr.com)

Louise Brooks & Bee Jackson just embody the energy, glamour and excitement of the
20s era in these stunning flapper dresses don't they?. The 20s was all about the drop 
waist, low neckline, beads and bobs! With a emphasis on the back, loose fitting waist lines  
and bejewelled fabric , it  was a defining era for fashion.  Fun, sensational and lively 
it certainly shook up the nation.


Want the fabulous flapper look? Check out our gorgeous range of art deco inspired flapper dresses, from the  dropped waist Black Deco Flapper Dress to the gold lines  and layered pleats in our Pleated Flapper Dress.

1930s


Featuring: Ginger Rogers in Vivacious Lady (Yurei.co.uk)


We just love Ginger Rogers dress here in Vivacious Lady 1938! Feminine, sheer fabrics were all the rage and with the invention of the bias cut draping was born! Dresses became elegant and fabric hung in sinuous folds and stretched to fit the contours of the body.
Adopt Ginger's Grecian goddess look with our Pink Art Deco Maxi, which embodies the dreamlike, shimmering beauty in 30s dresses with its gorgeous chiffon skirt. 

1940s


Featuring: Deanna Durbin (greenbriarpictureshows.blogspot.com)

Deanna Durbin looks the picture of innocence, in this beautiful floral wrap dress. Padded shoulders, silhouettes, clinched in waists and A line skirts were popular in the 1940s.
It was all about looking elegant yet smart, sexy yet refined.  Prints were big, shoulders
broad and skirts long and sleek.

If you love the hourglass silhouette and super flattering shapes of the 1940s than look 
no further than our Black Floral Tea Dress, with its cute fitted skirt and buttoned up waist.

1950s



Featuring: Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russel (lifeofmarilynmonroe.tumbler.com)

Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell in Gentlemen prefer Blondes look super cute in there gorgeous flared skirt and lemon wiggle dress! Both are defining iconic looks of the era,
with the full skirt taking the nation by storm and the slim fitting pencil skirt becoming a wardrobe staple to this day.

If you love this look, check out our Emily & Fin Dreamy Deco Dress with its 50s 
prom style fit and bold, bright print. 

1960s

Featuring: Diana Ross Andre Courreges Photoshoot by Bert Stern

How groovy does Diana Ross look  in this Andre Courage Shoot?! Space age inspirations, miniscule hem lines and geometric prints, the 60s was a decade that revolutionised fashion!

Check out our bright, fiery Orange Lace Shift Dress If you want to inject some life
into your wardrobe and channel the mod look. 

1970s


Featuring: Donyale Luna (demeterclarc.com)

Maxi dresses, crazy prints and flare shapes were all the craze in the 70s, and this 
circular hippy chick dress worn by Donyale Luna for Vogue was no exception!  
Fashion in this era was flamboyant, eccentric and romantic with exaggerated features.

Our boho Floral Jumpsuit with its slinky wrap around body, flared trousers and bold 
print nail this look perfectly.

Autumn/Winter Fashion Trends





We are loving lace this season! From contemporary mesh patterns, laser cut fabric
and floral vintage designs we've got it all. Romantic, feminine and sexy; lace has the ability
to make you feel both sophisticated and special. Nothing says that better than our blue floral
lace dress, which oozes 1950s charm and dramatic attitude all in one. Team it with crystals
and diamante for a night out or contrast with leather for a more casual look.
Whichever way you style it, you'll feel glamorous and up for a party. Get the girls and go!



This Jacquard French Connection Dress showcases sumptuous velvet in all its glory!
We are now well and truly embracing this fantastic A/W trend and the autumnal season.
Not only do we love the soft, rich texture of the fabric but we love the subtle print
and wrap skirt in this party dress. It makes a great transitional piece that takes you
from day to night and looks fab paired with metallic accessories. 



Gothic fashion has been resurrected this autumn in the shape of heavily
dramatic accessories and theatrical lace. Mix with denim jackets or tweed
for a modern updated look. We can rely on our lace cameo flapper headband
and lace pendent headband to add some drama into our lives. Opt for
blackcurrant or burgundy lipstick to create even more impact. 

                 



70s style maxi dresses are still all the rage this season. Flattering and glam
they have the ability to make you look an inch taller and feel classy yet sensual.
We love this pink beaded maxi dress for its beautiful beading and intricate
jewelled bodice. Imagine wafting across the dance floor in this pretty
ice pink number. Great for that special occasion and for making a entrance
at the office party




More is definitely MORE this season. Beading, sequins and embellishment
is the way forward. Wear sequins from top to toe this month and be a proper
party girl with our latest collection of beaded beauties.
