Trend Alert: Mad Men

I was in line at H&M the other day and a mother and daughter were in front of me.  They were discussing how they keep seeing 1960’s styles everywhere and were wondering where that came from.  While it’s a rule that almost all styles come back around eventually, this is mostly due to the TV show Mad Men.  If you haven’t seen it, this show is about an ad agency in New York in the early 1960’s.

The show created an interest in 1960’s fashion and now designers are running with it!  I’m a huge lover of history and for some reason, I just love to wear vintage looks!  This is definitely my cup of tea!  If you have a mother or grandmother that kept her clothes from the 60’s, it’s time to go treasure hunting through her closet!   Thrift stores, antique stores and vintage shops are great places to look for authentic, budget friendly pieces.  If you find a great vintage piece but it looks really dated, take it to someone who does good alterations (seamstress/tailor, etc.) and have them update the piece for you. A few inexpensive snips could get you a fabulous, one-of-a-kind vintage piece!

If you could wear fashions from any time in history, which time period would you choose?

I’ve done some hunting for you and found these fun, inexpensive items you can add to your wardrobe!  Enjoy and be groovy!
