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!
