Bloody Mary Cranberry | Vintage 1980s-does-1940s Polka dot Peplum Red Midi Dress
Vintage always takes us back, to eras that we may not have lived in, but have loved in timeless films and movies and photographs.
This red & black polka dot peplum top dress reminds of the 1940s, of a femme fatale sort with black gloves, black pillbox hat, kitten sling backs and a cigarette (with a long, slim cigarette holder - a must!) and hair waves that say everything.
This beauty has a deep V neckline (but you can either pin it with a brooch or wear a simple black tank inside) and 2 cute black buttons. The slightly ruched shoulders give it an illusion of power sans shoulder pads.
Ahem - pardon us while we go watch Casablanca again. For the nth time ;)
