The popularity of retro clothing has brought blurred or stretched definitions to retro-inspired fashion, but Doll Deluxe is the real deal. If you are drawn to garments associated with the 40s, 50s and 60s, you will love these well-made and beautiful articles of clothing offered by this small label.

The wiggle dress is the star of the Doll Deluxe collection. Each wiggle dress features the classic cut with a narrower width at the hem rather than the hips, allowing you to sexily “wiggle” when you walk. The label also has a selection of swing dresses, and they are just as impressive. In combination with flattering necklines, such as a halter or sweetheart shape, Doll Deluxe ensures your curves are hugged in only the most favorable way.

Doll Deluxe also offers a sweet collection of separates. From pencil skirts, sailor pants and swing skirts to peasant blouses, basic boatneck tops and pussy bow blouses, the possibilities to mix and match are endless. Whether you just started a pinup-inspired wardrobe or you are on the constant prowl for new retro-style additions, the clothing under this brand is versatile and easy to pair for both casual or dressier situations.

The color palette and retro-inspired prints of Doll Deluxe clothing are simple and are easily associated with vintage fashion. Gingham, polka dots and sailor stripes make a frequent appearance, but you will also find flirty designs, like cherry and hula prints.

The placement of detailing, like embroidered tattoo-style swallows, corset-like piping and peekaboo tulle, is deliberate and quite successful. These details not only enhance the garment but complement a woman’s body and personality, too.

Doll Deluxe is a great example of simple yet glamorous pinup-style clothing. Every rockabella, fiery vixen and burlesque girl should give the label a look, because most of the brand’s pieces translate well from day to night. If you live in Australia, the brand gives you the option to put items on lay by, but the website also has some great sales offered to their worldwide consumers.

The modern day woman is truly who they have in mind with their garments. One problem that many women experience is finding clothing that fit well, and Vintage Me Up realizes this dilemma. The clothes they create are made for women of all shapes and sizes, and finding garments that flatter your figure, no matter what shape that might be, is a feat in itself.

Another great reason why this store is exceptional is that they promote social awareness. Not only is each article of clothing is manufactured locally in their Los Angeles operation, but the store also utilizes 100% organic cotton for their dresses, and they source all the materials used in the United States.

They also safeguard their workers by treating them fairly and exposing them to the best working conditions possible. This socially conscious way of running their business is something Vintage Me Up takes seriously, and hopefully, inspires other retro and vintage inspired retailers to support their community as well.

It’s not surprising, since they’re located just 30 minutes away from the Los Angeles urban fashion scene. Designed by Janet Zuniga, her high quality pieces are constructed 100% in the USA. She began her line with a presence on Etsy, and Vintage Galeria has since expanded its online presence with a website and to small boutiques around the world.

What makes Janet’s designs recognizable to pinup and retro fashion aficionados is her use of vibrant Mexican folklore and hipster prints. Mexican art and rockabilly fashion go hand-in-hand, because of the presence of sugar skulls, bright colors and bold prints.

Dia de Los Muertos is a prominent Latino holiday and a big influence in urban neighborhoods in Los Angeles, so it makes sense that Janet incorporated the playful nature from her heritage into her vintage inspired fashion line.

Vintage Galeria dresses maintain the halter top, sweetheart necklines and cinched waistlines that represent retro fashion. The line of skirts come in a number of styles, including the classic pencil skirt and pleated swing skirt that emphasize a woman’s hourglass figure. An exciting addition to the line are the aprons, because they’re truly unique and bring pizazz into the kitchen. The collection of messenger bags, makeup bags and wallets are just as fun, too.

Independent labels don’t get enough credit in the fashion world, but when it comes to pinup and rockabilly style, these brands are an important source of inspiration. From brilliant images of the Virgen of Guadalupe to fun and flirty mustaches, floral and animal prints, the items in Vintage Galeria’s collection are a must-see for every rockabella. They’re refreshing from your typical concepts associated with vintage style, but the garments still embrace the figure-hugging silhouette from the 1950s we have all grown to love and cherish.
