Today's Everyday Fashion: Mad Men Party

Cigarette is fake *whew*






































Last night I co-hosted a Mad Men themed holiday party and this is what I wore! I went for full costume mode, and ordered this dress and brooch (an exact replica of Joan's!) specifically for the party. Add a bouffant, some serious eyeliner and a fake cigarette and I was in full character. It was a great night!! Are you a Mad Men fan? What's your favorite theme for a party?

Dress: c/o Shabby Apple, $92 ("Moon River" under the All that Jazz section. This dress runs big, I ordered an XS.)
Belt: Urban Outfitters, $20
Shoes: Restricted from Endless, $40
Vintage starburst brooch: c/o Catherine Nicole, $30
Headband and fake cigarette: borrowed

Eat your heart out, Don Draper.

  2. I love the look!  You nailed it, and what a fun theme for a holiday party!  Ok, now this look is such a great non-costume look too.  I love how you styled your hair, and the eyeliner looks fabulous too.  Great job!

  3. You look amazing!  I actually really like your hair like that even if it weren't a party (but then who's got time to do that much backcombing in the morning!?).  Wishing one of my xmas parties was MadMen themed now :(

    I really want to hold a "Business Men and Housewives" party... Sort of sexist, but all in the name of a good time. (Plus, I have some really good outfits!)

  11. I love Mad Men and the style of the '60s. I love your blog and recently started one of my own: http://libraryoflagniappe.blogspot.com/ and listed your blog in my List of Favorite Blogs!

  12. And both your thin, leopard belt and cognac heels............ (i.e., worn with your little Deep-Charcoal-Grey Dress With 4 Graduated Ruffles And Cap Sleeves, which will probably be in style ~ f.o.r.e.v.e.r. ~!!)............ simply make your dress - **S.I.Z.Z.L.E.** - J!!   

    How, pray tell, can ONE little dress be so simple, yet almost a work of Fashion Art;  and also............ so modest, yet so genuinely head-turningly sexy??!!    (As you've noted in your "Q&A with J," you grew up in Kansas, but now in your Mad Men outfit, you really could be a *movie star*, too, who's originally from Kansas----you just looked *so nice* for your Holiday Party this past Saturday night, Jeanette!!)

  13. You look ABSOLUTELY AMAZING in your Mad Men Outfit and I love every single detail of it. That dress is Fabulous and I love the really dark forest green. The style of it is so cool too. Love your use of the brooch, the 2011 use of a skinny leopard belt and your amazing hairdo. Also, I must say that last photo looks like it was taken from a scene of "Mad Men" itself.

    P.S. On an unrelated note I want to make sure you read a comment I left at a May blog post about an outfit you wore for a First Communion at a Catholic Church. I am going to paste my response in its entirety because since I am a TRUE FAN of yours I'd love for you to read my opinion and I think since you run a very successful Fashion Blog, it will help you further be successful in your blog, especially when it comes to your readers. So, in the post above this, I am reposting what I wrote on that blog, earlier, today.

    Have a Lovely Warm December in Florida, J and continue to bring amazing, affordable fashion to us all!!


    Take Care, Ada. =)

  27. How fun!  My husband and I just got into Mad Men this year and last night we finished the Season 3 finale.  We're trying to draw out the rest of what we have left to watch (all of Season 4) because we don't want it to end.  You ladies look fab, and your friend on the right looks like she could be straight outta Mad Men!
