Mad Men Fashion

Last night was the Mad Men Season 7, Part I Premiere. For the past four years, my boyfriend and I have developed the tradition of going all out for the Mad Men premiere. We dress in era-inspired attire, drink Manhattans, and make a fancy dinner all to the tune of oldies from the corresponding decade. In case you can’t tell I have a little obsession with Mad Men, not only for its impeccably written script but also for its fashion.Β So, today’s post is about all things Mad Men + Fashion, from how I Mad Men to some of the top features on Mad Men fashion you should totally check out. Whether you’re a die-hard Mad Men fan like me or just a lover of vintage fashion, there’s something for everyone!
