Chapter Seven: HALLOWEEN

It's almost here! The greatest and most frightening holiday of the year: 31 October, Halloweéééén! (That probably doesn't translate in text but you can think up the sound effects for yourself).
This holiday is mostly very popular in England and America but it's starting to spread across the rest of the world, and there's no reason why it shouldn't, it's crazy fun and scary.

Now I could tell you all about the history of Halloween but that's not really what we're looking for here. We know why we like it. We get to dress up! It's one of the few good excuses we get to behave like children, put on some crazy outfit and pretend to be someone else for a whole night. If that's not fun I don't know what is.

Ever thought of being a Halloween style pinup girl?
You got the idea now. It's double fun really, being a retro diva and a monster at the same time. Or you can dress up as one of your favorite Hollywood stars of the forties and fifties, think Marilyn Monroe or Lana Turner in real vintage (gentlemen: Elvis Presley always does the trick...). 
Anyway, we got plenty of clothing to help you out with this theme. Take a look at some of our fabulous dresses and get in the Halloween mood. Available at Bennies Fifties in Scheveningen or online at www.fiftiesstore.com. Have fuuuùùùùn :).

Chapter Six: GREEN LIGHT

It is now officially proven: retro- fifties- pinup clothing (or however you want to label it) can be worn by everyone for any occasion. Check this link out to see the new video clip by Roll Deep called "Green Light".
The gingham halter-neck top that we sell is featured in this clip! 

The music of Roll Deep has nothing to do with the fifties, the forties, retro, vintage or whatever, it's completely of this age. But that doesn't stop the women in this video to look absolutely gorgeous in 50's inspired clothing!

So, to keep things short, here's the conclusion: EVERYBODY, no matter where you're from, what you do or what you're particular interests are; retro clothing looks good on you!
Don't hesitate, come see our huge collection of fantastically fabulous clothing for men and women at Bennies Fifties in Scheveningen or online at www.fiftiestore.com.
