Emma and Adam created Kitty Rose Couture to “create beautiful garments and pass on the joy of their passion,” and one look at their website reveals that they have achieved that goal. Based in Brunswick, Kitty Rose Couture focuses on high quality for all of their clothing which is crafted in Melbourne.

Their women’s line includes pin up dresses in everything from pretty florals to rockabilly skull patterns to tropical bombshell prints in favorite pin up brands like Hell Bunny and P is for Pinup. Cute swing skirts, high-waisted rockabilly jeans, and cute button-up blouses can be paired with a vintage bomber jacket or sweater cardigan for a classic look in any weather.

That small scale quickly grew to the current worldwide retailer known today for the iconic pin up look of summer. They believe firmly in the quality of their sunglasses, offering a two year guarantee on all of their products. Constructed of polycarbonate frames and lenses, these are made of the same material as high-end optical glasses and can fit any prescription to make them right for you.

Browse through the collections of retro and polarized lenses for the style that suits your classic look and will shade your sultry gaze from harmful UV rays. Lenses are also treated with a crystal covering so their color and pattern will last. Choose from classic black, cherry reds, flirty pinks, and more. Fun pattern frames include zebra stripes, tortoise shell, and leopard print to bring out your wild side.

Checkerboard frames are perfect for the 1950’s rockabilly look and with shapes like cat’s eye, oval, and rectangle, there is something for every face shape. Rhinestones add some glamour to an already hot look. At such affordable prices, it’s easy to grab a few pairs for every vintage beach day outfit.

There is also an entire page of sale specials to check out for mod styles that are being discontinued or are almost sold out. These frames are less than half price, so it’s worth looking through before you checkout. You never know what extra vintage look might be calling your name!

The quality of Savage Sunglasses compares with the durability and strength of professional optical retailers while delivering the fashion of retro and rockabilly sunglasses straight from the Australian coast.

Cardi-Mania: Retro-Inspired Cardigans With a Splash of Rock and Roll
Straight out of Melbourne, Australia is Cardi-Mania, an exclusive online cardigan shop that caters to pinup princesses, rockabellas, psychobilly and gothabilly gals.

Cardigans are a great feature related to 1950s fashion, because they are practical and have never really gone out of style. Cardigans are one of those versatile pieces that can be dressed up or dressed down, and let’s be honest — a vintage loving girl can never have too many.

Cardigans pair well with any style skirt and also act as a layering piece to sleeveless tops and dresses. Wear them with a high-waisted pencil skirt and peep toe pumps to the office or high waisted jeans and a pair of Chucks on the weekends. While the Cardi-Mania’s collection isn’t extensive, their range in prints and designs is pretty impressive. This Australian shop focuses on a masterful combination of today’s latest trends in rock and roll with classic retro styles.

From cardigans with buttons, without buttons, cropped or otherwise, you’ll find a variety of colors, prints and designs, such as colored leopard print, argyle with skull accents, understated polka dots and classic cherry print. Cardi-Mania truly offers something for all retro aficionados. If cardigans are your passion, this shop is right up your alley.

Lush Cherry, also out of Melbourne, is a brand featured on Cardi-Mania’s website, and these cardigans are literally made specifically for you! With the exception of Lush Cherry Kids Cardigans, each piece under this brand is made-to-order.

They showcase the perfect balance of sweet and mischievous, which usually describes most rockabellas to a tee! To really allow you to stand out from other cardigan-wearing wannabes, Cardi-Mania offers the opportunity to pay a deposit plus postage to ensure you don’t miss out on their latest and most stylish cardigans in your size.

They also offer sweater/cardigan clips by Luxuriant, another label from the creator of Lush Cherry, so you can style your cardigan just like the gorgeous women from the 1950s! Since Cardi-Mania is only dedicated to this one garment, their collection of cardigans is one of the most unique you’ll find in the vintage inspired clothing industry.
