One of our lovely Pixie Cove followers messaged the other day asking us to put together some outfits with cigarette pants and a top, specifically in a vintage rockabilly / 50s style, and we are delighted to help. If you have any special occasions coming up and want some outfits put together for you then please do get in contact.
You may want to know first what exactly are cigarette pants? They are slim fit tapered pants which stop with a straight opening an inch or two above the ankle. They were popular in the 1950s and are making a come back today, women typically wear them in almost all colors including denim. We have chosen a black pair today but watch out for future posts where we will experiment with more colors and patterns.
We are currently focused on Halloween Costumes here at Pixie Cove and after finding all our favorite Retro Halloween Dresses we wanted to expand on those and give you the full details on making your own Retro Dorothy Wizard of Oz Costume. This costume is ideal for people looking to do Halloween on a budget this year as you can make it as simple or elaborate as you desire.
At Pixie Cove we are on the countdown to Halloween. We love any excuse to get dressed up and this is definitely the season for getting dressed up with Halloween, Thanks Giving and Christmas all on the horizon. Today we are going to focus on Retro Halloween Dresses that you can purchase as we know you are all busy and sometimes you just need to click and go, but we will be adding posts on how to make your own costumes really soon.
For the ladies who don’t want to be any character in particular but just look gorgeous in a Halloween inspired retro dress this rockabilly swing dress is ideal.
Finally we couldn’t make a list of retro dresses for Halloween without including one for a Minnie Mouse inspired Costume. This do it yourself outfit can be as simple or elaborate as you choose; simple black shoes and some mouse ears would do for those looking to do Halloween on a budget this year.
We know, if you are anything like us, that come the end of August you cannot wait for the first excuse to pull your trusty boots out of the closet. That satisfying feeling when you step out in them for the first time in Fall is only matched by that first cosy evening snuggled up by the fire with a big mug of cocoa. Even better though than wearing your favorite pair is allowing yourself to browse all the other wonderful boots online for some Fall outfit inspiration.
Boots have become an essential part of any shoe collection and are now not only reserved for fall and winter, they can also form part of your ensemble all-throughout the year. From variations like flat boots, platform boots, wedge boots and heeled boots, to ankle boots and thigh-highs, at Pixie Cove Boutique we love them all as long as they are absolutely gorgeous. The only difficulty will be picking just one, so go ahead and indulge!
If you have a passion for vintage then you are going to love these oxford inspired lace up knee high boots. These gorgeous boots are made from top quality leather, decorated with a oxford shoe trim design, come with a solid stacked heel and comfortable front platform. Pair these with your favorite fall dress and tights and you will have an outfit for any occasion!
Sometimes you need something cute and functional like these Waterproof Chelsea Ankle Boots. Whether you are heading for afternoon lunch with the girls or a weekend getaway these boots will work equally well with your skinny jeans or a cute skirt, all while keeping your feet warm and dry.
You know you mean business when you step out in the right boots and these Dr Martens are the right boots for making a statement.
