Everyone loves Mad Men. I am really fond of this era in general (late 50’s early 60’s) and this dress is definitely one of my favourite op-shop finds!
It was cheap, too! Even better!
It’s vintage handmade, the fabric is a super nice thick cotton, no stretch though so it’s super tight fitting. DO NOT WEAR AND EAT OR BEND OVER. Great dress for standing about and drinking, looking fabulous. Be careful when you sit down.
The skirt has a nice bustle at the back but sadly you can’t really see it in these photos…
The shoes were a gift from a friend, and yes, I am cheating because they are vintage 40s, totally wrong era! But I think they look smashing with the dress and am not so big a vintage snob to not mix n match eras.
My housemate did my hair. Can’t believe she managed to get my bob into a beehive! Genius!
