Hi Guys & Dolls!
Don’t you just love 1960’s style? The clothing, makeup, home decor etc… it all seems to be a delicate balance of SO GOOD and SO BAD!! It really epitomizes my blog’s name: Vintageortacky, a term I came up with when I worked at a secondhand store. I
was am fully obsessed with retro/vintage fashions, but so aware of that delicate line between fabulous vintage, and outdated tacky-ness.
So just in case you don’t know, there’s this fantastic television series called MAD MEN about a Manhattan advertising agency in the sometimes placid, sometimes turbulent 1960’s. In the series (season 5) we’re currently in 1966 in the heat of the civil rights movement, the sexual revolution, and things are getting interesting! Sadly, no one in my personal life watches the show and it’s the type of show that needs discussing!
Here’s a tutorial inspired by one of the sexiest ladies on Television, Joan Holloway/Harris played by Christina Hendricks. Joan is the Director of Agency Operations at the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce advertising agency. I don’t want to give away any plot points if you’ve never watched the show, so we’ll leave it at that.
