I don't wear a lot of repro. I had a really bad experience with it way back when I first got into Rockabilly. I bought a few items from a well known brand and I was really disappointed with them. The quality was cheap, the cut was bad, and they were way overpriced! I felt like I could've bought that stuff at the mall for a fraction of the cost. Needless to say it left a bad taste in my mouth. If at all possible I always prefer to buy the real thing, but lately I have noticed that repro clothes have gotten a LOT better! They are using 'vintage' material and patterns and are making items that are of a great quality. And, they look vintage which has been something that has turned me off of repro in the past. Here are some things that I am coveting at the moment.
Heyday trousers (she's got some new styles up on her site). I love this green color. I have the red ones but I still need to get them hemmed. They are just a wee bit too long.
Trashy Diva Sweetie Dress $110.00. I love the 40s look of this dress, and its different than anything I have.
BBQ print bra top from Atomic Swag $32.00. This site has a ton of cute halter tops and playsuit sets. And the prices are very reasonable.
After seeing all the cute ways that Andi B Goode wears her Freddies of Pinewood jeans, it makes me realize that I need a pair. $60.00
Rocket Originals Esther wedge $102.00. I still want these. I just need to break down and get them.
