A Swell Time

So, a few of you asked what frock I ended up choosing for our Mad Men-themed party a few weeks ago.  In the end, it didn't come down to the dress, but a pair of earrings. The day of the bash, I popped into Pretty Parlor, a vintage store just over the hill, and came out with the perfect pair of dangle-y blue bobbles from the 60s.

They ended up being the perfect shade to match the blue flowers on the print dress so on it went, carefully over the big bouffant hair! 


Admittedly, I did a better job making sure the "Lucky Strikes" and "Sterling Coopers" were up to standard than taking photos, so I'm stealing a few here from my friend Amy.  For more on the birthday girl who inspired the bash, please check out Amy's lovely blog. 


  1. I love the bouffant hair - so retro and elegant. You look beautiful!

  2. Love that stylish shot of you and your husband!! I'm hoping you'll show a few more pix from the night - even if you have to borrow them!!

  3. Oh, this looks like a serious party!!! I love you had a drink called the Sterling Cooper!

    You look smashing!!!
    xoxo Elizabeth
