Mad, Mad World


The Walking Dead and True Detective recently ended, so you bet your DVR I was happy that Mad Men began its final run last Sunday to fill a gaping hole in my Sunday night tv watching ritual. I’m just as eager as any other fan to see what types of shenanigans Don and the Gang will be getting into this season. But as you probably guessed, I’m just as highly anticipating how the costume designers are going to bring to life the look of the times. 

I was lucky enough to have a real model’s portfolio from the late 60s at my fingertips to assess possible style spoilers in upcoming episodes. I may have died and gone to fashion heaven when I went through this collection. Fiction may be fabulous, but I’d argue that the authenticity of these shots is even better.  Re-emerging trends abound, and I want every single one of these outfits right now.

Oh and who is that beautiful, blonde stunner in the pictures, you ask? I’m proud to say that’s my mother-in-law totally killin' it!
