40's Little Italy || Red & Black in Miss Retro Chic



It's time for more Miss Retro Chic!  Today's crimson red dress was designed as a 50's swing dress, but leave the crinoline behind and this beauty easily turns into a 40's frock.  I was inspired by the beauty of this neckline!  Feminine pleats & defined shoulders gave me a feeling of wartime nostalgia, a time when romance intermingled with obligation, and dresses were demure, sophisticated, and yet ladylike and delicate.  My patent bag and shoes are also from Miss Retro Chic, and how beautiful are the criss cross straps & deco-like heel on these pumps?!  

A red dress in Little Italy calls for a springtime date at historic G. Davino, which has been here since it was founded in 1908!
