Pinstriped Handbags in Miss Happ's Vivia runway show

We have been quietly working on a new project for our Miss Happ hand bags and wallets/purses, and this past week we got the first glimpse of our Miss Happ Kustom, handpainted pinstripe handbags and purses. 


All have been especially painted for us for our fashion show slot for the 2015 Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Week end fashion show (to be held on the Friday) and we are over the moon! 

Hand bag Colours range from the classic fifties shades of Mint and Aqua to our favorite Rockabilly red, natural and purple leopard print, Purple and the most awesome royal blue for our sailor girl theme. We are also going to be doing wallets in colours from gold to cerise, pink, purple and our favorite, leopard print.

At this moment we only have a very limited range - and all are one offs with designs being kustom designed by Miss Happ and especially created for us. Look out for pinstripes that include anchors, flamingos, hibiscus, Cherries, tattoo inspired diamonds and so much more!

All will be seen on our fashion show and will be for sale at our booth at the Viva Las Vegas Car show on Sat.


Wait until you see the others....

What is Rockabilly style?

I get asked this often. "So what is this that you are doing?", "Why skulls?", "What's with the tattoos?"..so here goes..these are purely my views...in 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,…
