When my friend Bridget emailed me about helping to wardrobe her as Joan Holloway from Mad Men for Halloween, I knew that I had stumbled upon something good. Something that my friends (shout out to you, Miss Tammy Tibbetts & Rachel Draper Mount!) had even suggested weeks prior: to advertise myself as a “Mad Men” Halloween costume one-stop-shop.
She kept her question simple in the body of the email:
“Anyway, I have two questions for you. I’m thinking about being Joan Holloway from Mad Men for Halloween. Do you have a ’60s-ish red or purple dress in your collection?”
And one-stop-shop is exactly what I became, transforming Bridget from uptown NYC girl to Madison Avenue hyper-feminine chic.
I can’t post a picture quite yet, but I can give you a little preview of what’s to come. Check out the shoes, the bag, and the color of her dress. Then check out the pictures of the Mad Men mistresses above. Looking for some lace gloves, a feathered hat, a swing jacket or a pearl necklace? Sammy D Vintage gots it.
