Swinging Sixties Shift Dress


My fashionistas,  “We’re  very into ‘Mad Men,’ we watch it every season”, said Mad Men fans in Manhattan when the show kicked off its 6th season two weeks ago on AMC TV. I am one of them. Last Sunday, those of you have watched the show, have noticed the fashion theme: Swinging Sixties. This post is truly, deeply and madly inspired by it. Going back in time, 60’s style dress features cutout peter pan collar, polka dots, broderie anglaise etc. As we all know fashion returns after some time. 60’s shift dress has seperated itself  from us for some time but  this season, the stand-out dress shape is the easy-to-wear, minimal shift dress. Again. I have completely forgotten about this cobalt blue shift dress features  polka dot peter pan collar and pocket border which I have dolled up last summer during a holiday in Spain. Now it is pure sheer coincidence that my holiday wardrobe matches to every different  places I visit- it may be the colors of the buildings and architecture of the city or even its theme, always match-o-much! This shift style dress is smart and simple and stylish. I have tried a small beehive hairstyle to stay in that era and arranged my new grown hair with a bow hair band on the front. Vintage sunglasses and red lipstick (which never seems to go out of fashion) have played vital role to complete this look.
