Rocketeer reporting for duty! Featuring Hell Bunny
So I'm a bit slow on the uptake (nothing new, right?) but I'm finally usting out my Curverella t-shirt from Nicky Rockets after purchasing it at Plus North in August last year. Shortly after the attending the event I injured my back and by the time I was up and about again it was jumper weather. So here it is and man I LOVE it.
The stall was manned by the simply gorgeous Betty Pamper, who was really sweet and helpful. She advised me on the best size to choose and she was bang on. It fits like a dream! I opted for the slash neck.
The sizing is very generous with the material having a decent stretch to it. The fabric is high quality, as is the print ink. I love the tongue in cheek designs, especially the B-movie horror vibe. Perfect!
What prompted me to dig this little gem out was the recent arrival of my first Hell Bunny piece.
I'd been on the hunt for a plain jacket with the weather warming up slightly. As with most of my endeavours into plain things I come out with something all singing and all dancing.
There's nothing plain about this amazing Sadie 50's Baseball Style jacket in red and black.
The fabric is thick and soft, the jacket being fully lined with its corrosponding colours. The colours are very rich and vibrant. There are two stitched designs which are excellent quality; one on the front and a huge back piece.
As with all vintage repro I buy the biggest and cross my fingers a I try it on. It fits, but is slightly snug towards the bottom. It sits on my hips so if you prefer something longer this won't be for you. I have room to swing my arms without any buttons popping open. Success!
Now I can grab a milkshake at my local diner and gaze scornfully at all the squares.
