Why Modern Retro you ask? Because this dress reminds me of the 1950's, the pin dots / polka dots, the gathered swing skirt, fitted waist and square neckline, all remind me of a time I wish I was swing dancing. But since I didn't exist in that time period I can add a little modern twist to a classic style. I also decided to go with red lips (my all time favorite red lipstick is Mac's Ruby Woo) which is so 1950's pin up and truly timeless, classic and elegant. I wore this outfit to work with my Zara sandals instead of pumps because I wanted to add that modern twist to a retro looking dress.
