KASEY Lloyd is waiting with bated breath for the Cooly Rocks On festival in June.

"I can't wait to get dressed up in my vintage clothes," she said.

"It's soooo... glamorous."

Ms Lloyd, a runner-up in the Queensland leg of the Miss Pin-Up Australia competition, is a fan of vintage clothing and memorabilia.

"I love the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s fashions," she said.

"It was all so feminine and beautiful."

She goes under the name of Petticoat Polly when she competes.

"I see it as a celebration of women getting together and becoming confident in their own skin," she said.

While she is gearing up for next year's event, her wardrobe is growing as she collects vintage clothing.

And it won't go to waste. The 10-day Cooly Rocks On festival will showcase some of the biggest names in Rock 'n' roll, Rockabilly and Swing music, with more than 50 bands and plenty of dancing. Running from May 31 to June 10, all things 1950s and 1960s from cars through to fashion will be on display.

"I've made a lot of friends through the Miss Pin-Up Australia competition and I'm encouraging them all to come along," Ms Lloyd said.
