My Mad Men contribution!

Happy Thursday!

I thought that since all the talk about town lately was in reference to the new season of the fabulous television drama Mad Men. That I would also due my part in contribution to the era of the early 1960's.
Even though I normally tend to always naturally gravitate towards a little earlier eras. I do also have an appreciation and eye for the early 60's, and have accomplished this look many-many times. When I say early I definitely mean more of the classic Jacki O, Grace Kelly or Audrey Hepburn inspired look. You know Mad Men style!

So, I managed to scrounge up a few old pics of me and my cronies while dressed in our 1960s style. On this particular night we were out and about in a cab painting the town red. We managed to conquer two bars,  both that are known for their great 1960's charm and decor. Kon-Tiki and The Shelter are both located in Tucson, AZ.

Does anyone else have any 1960's fashion or beauty pictures to share in appreciation of the new season of Mad Men?

I was wearing my 1960's white and gold brocade shift dress and my pink 1960's satin pumps. For accessories I paired them with a gold and pink pearl dress pin from the 60's with matching earrings. Pink gloves and a beaded 1960's floral purse (sorry you can't see it that good). My hair was styled in a 1960's bouffant style french twist and my makeup was 1960's inspired with cat eyes, darker and thicker eyelashes and nude lipstick.
