Due to circumstances outside of our control, our little surprise we mentioned yesterday will have to be postponed until next week. Let’s just say – it’s going to be great!
Instead, we’ve got a Mad Men-inspired post just in time for the show’s season four premier this Sunday. Without a doubt, that show has had a huge influence on current fashion trends on television, in movies and in everyday life. Americans have rediscovered the powerful sexiness of a well-cut suit on a man and the subtle allure of a well-defined waist on a woman. You don’t have to show everything to look great.
An oldie-but-goodie at this point, my black, vintage, “50s housewife” dress (as I used to refer to it in the days before Mad Men) is a favorite. You know when you try something on and you think it must have been specially tailored for you? This dress is just like that. It’s so easy to wear because I know it was meant for me!
Normally this dress comes out of the closet for various parties or afternoon events, but Lindsay’s immediate reaction to it was – that would be perfect for work! Although I find it difficult to re-imagine the dress as more than just a party option, I think it’s worth a try. Its length, simplicity and modesty all make it rather office-ready. Paired with some cute black flats … what do you think?
Killer, right? Now these are party shoes. Sexy heel: check. Teal: check. A little toe cleavage: check. What’s not to love? (Besides the horrible pain of walking 3 blocks – this tall girl needs a little more practice wearing heels!)
