Street Style: Rockabilly Gingham

I ran into Tabitha Arnaud from Walcott, ND at the community garage sale at Veterans Memorial Arena in West Fargo a few weeks back and I loved her retro style and fearless pattern mixing.

Seriously, she’s rocking three prints and emerald green shoes and she absolutely owns it. And her great cat’s eye glasses and swipe of bright green eye shadow totally take the outfit up a notch. Clearly Tabitha’s a more-is-more kind of girl and it really works for her.


So much of what Tabitha is wearing is a classic mid-century style, from the flirty dress to the teased hair to the classic cherry motif. When you wear it all together, as she does, the look is kitchy and sweet, with a touch of rockabilly attitude. But each piece also works on its own to add a little sass and dimension to a wardrobe of basics.

She’s also wearing gingham, which has been all over the magazines and street style blogs this spring. She takes it in a decidedly retro/rockabilly direction with this adorable dress. The swingy

And ooh, look at those pockets! Love, love, love.
