California Dreamin…

Mad Men is one of my favorite references for style. Unlike most people, however, my sartorial appetite isn’t satisfied by Betty or even Joan. It’s Don’s casual acquaintances that really tickle my fancy. Remember Midge (season 1) with her cigarette pants and peasant tops? And who could forget Joy from season 2 when Don goes to California? I immediately though of Joy’s iconic 60s California resort wear when I saw this dress at a local consignment shop. The only problem was this dress was just a smidgen small. I consulted my tailor and for $12 I was able to turn this thrifted Loft number into the perfect outfit for a wedding in Raleigh this past weekend.
