Ms. Perry looked a little blue at the premiere of the Smurf’s film, but between her retro dress and divine hairstyle, we had a winner on our hands. Let’s check in with you dames!

Amber Pare: “ Fab! I would wear the whole outfit (including the hair style) if I could!”

Kathryn Sylvia: “Fab but my only thought was if there was ever a time to rock the blue hair the smurf movie premiere was it love the style should have been blue though”

Angela Christine McGuire: “She actually looks nice for once.” (ouch)

The “Glee” starlet was spotted this past week in this candy-coolred confection and was serving up the 1950s in the most fabulous way possible. We thought Ms. Rivera was channeling her inner Marilyn- let’s see what you gals had to say!

Natalie Harms: “How dare you even ask that question, she is absolutely stunning!”

Kat Lambourne: “Definitely more of butt dress then boob dress, I love the color though!”

Sweet, scrumptious, and ready for the beach. Whether you love a one piece or a bikini, these cherry printed darlings are made for lounging in the sun. For a classic look, try our vintage-inspired black cherry print one piece perfected with ruched accents, a feminine sweetheart neckline, and a halter neckline. Or, if your feeling a little more down home, our Red Gingham Maraschino two piece is sweeter than cherry pie with high waisted bottoms, delicate bows, and polka dotted accents.

 

Not ready to commit to a cherry sweetened ensemble? These accessories are the perfect accent for dressing up your style with retro flair. The Picking Cherries Black Chain Necklace and the Classic Hardware  Retrolite Cherry Earrings are a charming way to add a touch of classic pin up style to your wardrobe.

Nothing says summer like a big bowl of freshly picked cherries. Taking inspiration from one of our favorite summer treats, these white and black cherry print Bettie peep toe shoes feature nude details, peep toes, and breezy pleated accents. Try pairing them with your favorite sun dress or a pair of high-waisted shorts for effortless style.

Some say diamonds are a girl’s best friend but we think no girl should be without classic cherry red lipstick. Besame’s Classic Cherry Red Lipstick is the perfect red for all skin tones. The cool blue undertone will brighten your smile while adding a vibrant pop of cherry red to your pout.

Whether you’re lounging poolside or headed to an island getaway, our delicious fruit prints will lend effortless retro-inspired style to your summer wardrobe.
