Abstract Geo High Neck Dress c/o Motel Rocks, Topshop Contrast Trim Tee, Ray Ban Glasses c/o Red Hot Sunglasses, Daniel Footwear Patent Boots
With the arrival of the Mad Men finale imminent, it seemed the perfect oppotunity to step back into the sixties! The wardrobe department have done a wonderful job throughout all 7 seasons, though it's no secret that we love a bit of retro , and we have been well and truly inspired.
I wanted to do a more modern look with my 60's vibes - the gorgeous Megan summed up our feelings in this post here about being influenced by past decades and her wise words are some to be remembered when styling certain pieces up! I wanted to do a monochrome look (something rarely seen on Mad Men itself) and this Motel Rocks dress was a great starting point with its abstract print and high neck, mini style. To give it it's noughtie twist, I layered it over a contrast trim tee - this seasons must have updated basic and gives the overall look quite casual.
I couldn't not wear these patent boots as a real salute to the post! They add that feminine sex appeal in just the right dose.
Seventies may be the trend of the season but there's no harm in looking back a little further now and again! Are you 60's or 70's? We can't choose!
