Retro Cocktail Inspiration: The Dirty Martini

 

Retro+fashion+inspiration+dirty+martini

Here at UV we love a good cocktail, but what we love even more is a fabulous ensemble inspired by one of our favorite classic libations, the dirty martini. We paired the oh-so lovely Green Martini Print 1950s Flare Dress with the Pinup Girl Black Milena Grosgrain Evening Purse and the Black Strappy Domina Heels. Finish your retro look with a pair of deco inspired Nude Swarovski Crystal Fan Earrings by Tarina Tarantino. Finally, pour yourself something dirty!

  • Splash of olive juice

Directions:
