MCLV Style: Retro Fashion

Two things that I’m always drawn to in fashion are bold colors and classic silhouettes, so this bright little shift dress from San Francisco designer Alyssa Nicole immediately caught my attention. Retro fashion at it’s finest!

The red-on-pink print is fun and eye-catching, while the high collar and classic shift silhouette gives it a great retro-inspired feel.

Bonus? The designer is not only a San Francisco local, she’s also a friend.

I interviewed Miss Alyssa Nicole a few months ago {you can read her darling interview here} and was really impressed by the chic, minimal Spring 2014 Collection that she presented last weekend. I’m already daydreaming about Spring!

In terms of styling, it can be challenging to find the right accessories for an eye-catching piece like this bright dress. Rather than continue with the sweet red and pink color scheme for my extras I decided to take things in a different direction with leopard print driving gloves, a tan coat, and an oversized neutral bag. And the perfect red suede pumps, of course!

Do YOU like retro fashions as much as I do?
