Get The Mad Men Look!

Up until now we haven't mentioned the words 'Mad' & 'Men' together on this blog, but resistance is futile when it comes to AMC's award winning show, and soon the whole world will be under its sartorial spell! Every man and woman, equally dashing and sexy in sleek sharkskin suits and slinky sheath dresses....well maybe not, but we can dream right?

Anyway, with the Season 4 finale rapidly approaching (boo hoo), and Halloween on the horizon (yay!), it's a pretty safe bet that a small army of Don, Betty & Joan clones will be hitting the streets in search of smoke filled, martini fuelled shenanigans over the next few weeks!

With that in mind, we bring you the first of TWO Mad Men themed posts to help you get in the mood and obtain the look. Of couse it's LADIES FIRST ...

Betty, Peggy & Joan in fabulous early 60's cocktail atire

1960s turquoise 3/4 sleeve wool sheath dress with satin buttons

1960s blue/green painterly wool long sleeved sheath dress

1960s short sleeved gray wool sheath dress with stripe

1960s olive lurex cocktail sheath dress with rhinestone pin

1950s/60s green satin sheath dress with full over-skirt

1950s/60s olive/black taffetta party dress

Accessorize a la this early 1960s Sears catalog spread, with leopard hat, pendant & multi chain necklaces, stilletto pumps, tapestry & leather handbags and matching gloves for an authentic period look.
Stop by the shop to see all the other great Mad Men era goodies we currently have in store!
