Ann-Margret Anyone?

The moment I first laid eyes on this dress my mind immediately went to Joan from Mad Men and Ann-Margret.  I thought automatically of a 1960s bombshell.

It's only fitting that I broke out my Grandma Charlotte's sunglasses from that era also.  And why not wear my hair up like Joan and throw on some gloves?

The sweet bow detail on the shoes, though not vintage, I thought was a perfect touch for the look.

I really had fun in this outfit even though I'm more of a 1940s/1950s girl.  I do appreciate a lot of the style from the early-mid 60s but then past that I stop caring for it as much.  Most of the styles on Mad Men currently?  No thank you, I'll pass.

 Outfit Details:
vintage dress, vintage gloves, belt, vintage jewellery {thrifted}
vintage handbag {gift}
vintage sunglasses {belonged to my Grandma Charlotte}
backseam stockings {eBay}

It's hard to think of the 60s when my mind is focused on the 20s and The Great Gatsby.  I definitely want to start integrating more of that style into my wardrobe.

  1. So, so pretty! I agree; I love the style of the 40's and 50's, but once you get into the sixties it's just not as good. I think because they started going more towards shift dresses and shorter hemlines, and that's not as appealing to me. (Not to mention, it doesn't look so great on my figure...)

    So I just sent you (finally) my little interview to have you be my May featured blogger. Let me know if the email didn't reach you!
