A Little Introduction

As a very wise woman once said (Laura from Project Runway to be exact), “It is a slippery slope to sweatpants and a mini-van.” Thankfully, I have not yet made it to the bottom of that slope, but I can see it clearly from my kitchen window.

So what does a girl do when, after years of priding herself on her minty vintage frocks & Lucite box purses finds herself in jeans with a diaper bag over one shoulder and baby in tow?
Hence the name, BombshellShocked. I believe it a fitting name for a formerly cute rockabilly girl who looked in the mirror one morning and couldn’t figure out what the hell happened to her fashion sense.

Although the era of the 1950’s glorified motherhood, it did not embrace breastfeeding and clothing was not based upon comfort. I am determined to combine the rockabilly style with ease of movement, breast accessibility, and the ability to get fully dressed within my toddler’s attention span. It isn’t easy, but isn’t impossible either.

Yes, ladies, I am determined to have it all!


  1. Sounds like a surplice or wrap blouse will work well for feeding , and look cute with jeans or a pencil skirt . By the way, I don't believe for a minute that you are "formerly cute" ! You can have it all - thank goodness you are aware of the dangers and temptations of the sweatpant !

  2. button front day dresses!!!!!!
    get an awesome Nursing tank top (bravado makes a GREAT one) and wear it under button front day dresses.

    that has become my every day wear.

    as a mother of 2 kids, I am now classified "soccer mom" and I never want to be that woman, so I FORCE myself to pin-curl my hair after the kids are in bed. and I wear kitten heels at least 3 times a week.

  3. I love that you added the getting dressed in a toddler's attention span. so true ;)
