Check out all the photos of this outfit here!
Didn’t I tell you I was going to wear a Mad Men-inspired outfit to the office? Didn’t I? I do think I did! :)
As always when I’m inspired by a particular look, I don’t see it as if I’m going to a costume party dressed as someone else – I try my best to pick out elements from that look and then put my own spin on it. If I don’t feel like myself, I’ve done something wrong.
Here, I suppose I was going for a groomed, put-together, proper yet sassy vibe. The paradox of the 1960’s working woman: flirtatious versus professional, vain versus competent, fashionable versus respected. I’m not sure how well I succeeded at that, but I did feel extremely swell all day long! And that was the main goal. So, I dare say: mission accomplished.
