Every girl needs the perfect little black dress and as soon as we saw the Black Cherry Dollface Wiggle Dress we were in love. This delectable wiggle dress stars off sultry with cross over straps, a plunging sweetheart neckline, and a curve hugging silhouette and finishes flirty with a playful ruffle hem. We added some retro-inspired finishing touches and, voila! Instant pin up fabulousness!

For touches of print and texture, we styled the Dollface dress with the Lucky Me Leopard Tote and added the Red and White Polka Dot Bow Stud Earrings for added color. Complete the ensemble with classic Black and Nude Cuban Foot Stockings, neutral heels like the Cream Ruffle Peep Toe Lolita Heels, and the Black Fancy Cat Eye Sunglasses.

Spring is almost here and we’ve been daydreaming about strolling along the boardwalk and spending long days at the beach with sparkling turquoise waters and bright golden sunshine. While the weather is still a bit too brisk for the beach, we decided to channel warm, sunny days with touches of nautical flair.

Whether you want to add a little or a lot, these all-seasonal retro nautical pieces will brighten up any ensemble from the office to an evening out on the town.

Keep the chills away with our lightweight and cozy Turquoise Embroidered Anchored Cardigan. Soft with a hint of stretch, you can toss this cardigan over your favorite jeans or a pencil skirt for instant va-va-voom! Style with the Navy Sally Swing Skirt, for the perfect mix of classic 1950s style and maritime poise. Simple and sophisticated with a fitted waist and cream ribbon detail at the hem, complete your look with the Silver Anchor Stud Earrings for work-appropriate vintage style.

For subtle nautical touches, accessorize with the Navy Hold Fast Bowler or the Black and White Galley Ho Anchor Wallet. Perfect for stashing all of your essentials, this wallet/purse combination is cute, durable, and oh-so pin up chic. What’s not to love? Of course, no look is complete without the perfect pair of shoes. Kick up your heels with the Turquoise and Polka Dot Elanor Pumps, these darling shoes feature a gathered velvet peep toe and complementary black and white polka dot ankle strap and heel.
