A few weeks ago, Joe and I attended a Mad Men theme party. At the last minute. Joe had been waffling all week about attending the party and decided at lunchtime the day of that we'd go for a while. Which meant I had only a few hours between work and party to pull together a Mad Men themed outfit for both of us. And neither of us watch the show.
How'd I do?
Excuse the terrible camera phone picture.
I think I pulled it off. Sheath dress stolen from my "work clothes" closet. Jacket, homemade and thrifted. Gloves, vintage from Grandma. Silver clutch (not pictured), also vintage Grandma.
Joe wore a black suit with a white button down and a skinny tie I found in the same shop as my jacket.
We walked in and the host immediately yelled, "Now THAT's what I was talking about!!" when I pulled off my jacket. Interestingly enough, the guys did a better job of dressing up than the girls did. Probably because it's a hell of a lot easier to just find a skinny tie and slick your hair back. And then we drank and were merry and corrupted poor, confused exchange students with all our sexist comments all night long.
