StyleSprinter - Eva Mendes Collection - Maria Jacquard Dress - 1

handbag // dress // pumps // watch // glasses

A white dress is such a classic summer staple, but with a cherry on top it’s your ultimate retro party essential. Well, a modern day kind of retro as this dress is actually from the latest Eva Mendes Collection for New York and Company (check out my last week’s post where I feature another favorite bold print dress of mine from the same brand).

Even though I’m not that into pin-up style in terms of makeup and hair, I definitely started looking more into vintage-inspired outfits. In my opinion, colorful prints and feminine silhouettes that this type of clothes usually feature look great in combination with my all-time favorite beauty essential, red lipstick.

I also don’t mind picking accessories that create a bit of a contrast with my overall girly look, such as this gorgeous handbag by Love My Soul. I love how this stud riveting decorated satchel adds a pop of edginess to my overall retro look and creates such interesting contrast with my emerald green pumps. I also adore the versatility of this handbag as I can style it not only with my cherry dress, but also with some hip and edgy clothes.
