What is Sexy: Rockabilly Girls

Maybe it's the association with cool cars and vintage motorcycles. Or maybe it's because the look is a throwback to when women were more feminine, and well, men were men.

With that in mind, here are some modern girls who offer a throwback to when it was ok to ask a girl to make you a sandwich, to a time when you didn't need to blow a weeks salary on flowers and a fancy restaurant. Instead, taking her to a drive in and having a milkshake made for a good date. Before feminism gave women the power to stop taking care of their appearance. I guess I am old fashioned.
