We do custom accessory orders too!

I am back in the land of the living - I have been a super busy bee of late. Besides working flat out for the past two weeks designing an awesome range of kids clothing for a well known INTERNATIONAL SURFING LEGEND (!) I have also been doing some pretty cool custom accessories in the evenings - even if it's at 10 o'clock at night the creative juices never seem to stop flowing thank goodness! 

Our custom accessories are exactly that! One of a kind, and specifically made to order - usually with a specific date or event in mind. Anybody can place an order with Miss Happ - we post to anywhere in SA, as well as internationally too. Postage for accessories are minimal which always helps! If it is super urgent and you are in SA we can even courier it to you overnight :)

The choices are endless! So if it's off beats colours, or fancy feathers and lace we can make something special for your occasion to perfectly match what you are wearing.

Below is a few of the more fun orders we have done lately...seems we certainly have a colour theme going..might just be because halloween is around the corner ;-) but the little pretties have been for so many different occassions..from weddings and matric balls to halloween parties!

To place an order, you are welcome to email me and we can take it from there:

Till next time!

What is Rockabilly style?

I get asked this often. "So what is this that you are doing?", "Why skulls?", "What's with the tattoos?" here goes..these are purely my a nutshell :)

Rockabilly has it true roots in the rock n’ roll culture of the 50’s, but today girls and guys around the world have taken it to a new level. The look is edgy with strong tattoo influences and is very visible within the alternative community. Many a Rockabilly guy and girl is tattooed which only highlights their need to be an individual - it's a way to stand out from the crowd and is very reminiscent of the rebellious attitudes of icons from the era such as James Dean, Elvis Prestly and the notorious Bettie Page amoung others..

In South Africa we are seeing the subculture slowly gaining popularity and awareness amongst the younger 20 – 30 something’s, and for many it’s a natural progression from other small, niche subcultures such as Goth or punk.
For the modern rockabilly guys and gals, …

What is pin up style?

Although the lines are not definite , there are a few little details to take note of here when looking at the pinup style....

The Pin Up style tends to be slightly more feminine when compared to the rockabilly style. This look is more vintage inspired with looks being very closely modeled on styles (mainly) from the 40’s and 50’s. For the Pin up style girls often revert back to vintage patterns to produce garments that are known as “vintage reproductions” circa 1950 as in our Miss Happ Vintage Dress (below), which was on original Vogue pattern from 1954.

Many girls who dress in the pin up style will go as far as wearing beautiful retro seamed stockings with suspenders and glamourous vintage inspired lingerie as seen at online at What Katie Did together with perfectly coiffed Hair and beautifully applied make up.

Compared to the rockabilly girls who have a very noticeable rebellious look about them with their tattooed bodies and bright hair, pin up girls have a softer, more feminine look,…
