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

Here at UV, we love the holidays! One of our absolute favorite things about the season is the fabulous holiday entertaining. This year, we’re getting dressed up in crimson. We’ve styled the Unique Vintage Red Satin Happily Ever After Dress with the 1940s inspired Black Leather Ankle Strap Bettie Heels and the Black and Leopard Miss Lux Clutch. Of course, no retro holiday look would be complete without a stunning red lip. Try Besame Cosmetics Lipstick in classic cherry red for that perfect pout!

The “Mad Men” star was spotted last week emulating her inner secretary and we adored the whole look. From hair to hem, we thought it was sharp, with just a hint of retro! You gals, however, didn’t quite agree. Since we didn’t get our usually vocal darlings to participate, we decided it would be fun to see what her fellow Mad Women might think about the situation.
