theme fridays: mad men

Photobucket

So it's back to work and back to theme fridays! This weeks theme is Mad Men, which is cool and all but I had quite a bit of trouble putting something together. I feel like this is a style I wear pretty often, maybe is even most of what my style revolves around for the most part, 50s and 60s vintage. So I decided to go with a dress that I feel would get me ahead in the office, a bum fitting wiggle dress of course! All the guys around the office would love it for sure, i'll give Joan a run for her money!

This is one of my favorite dresses, I got it from Donnaland last summer when I was working for her at Brimfield. The shoes I got at a salvation army out east on long island like two summer ago. The necklace I just got at Brimfield last week, I spent a lot of my time there looking for jewelry to build up my not so existant jewelry collection. I decided I want to start wearing more necklaces and earrings and junk, and I found a whole lot of good stuff up there! And these super pretty cat eye glasses I just got from Donnaland as well! They still have a very mild prescription in them, so they are easy to wear, but not for long if I don't want to mess up my eyes! I plan to get clear lenses put in, or something else if it turns out I need a little help with my vision.. which I feel may be the case these days.

I love that you actually have STYLE! There are so many outfit blogs out there right now that are booooring. The girls just put on a cute "vintage"dress (they would never use the word "thrift store" -which is another reason I like you) and take a picture of themselves - they might as be a mannequin! GIT IT GURL!
