I absolutely love the styles of the 1950's and 60's. Yes…I am a huge MadMen fan. It's going to be weird to finally be able to watch it again in Feb. Those 1950's styles are iconic and very flattering to the female form. Everyone looks good in a tight bodice and full skirt. In the 1950's the hemlines were lower than what I prefer so the updated versions are easier to wear since you don't need to be 6 ft tall to make it look good.
I was shocked to find this super cute 1950's inspired dress at Forever 21 in NYC, Times Square. The cut was brilliant…the colors I knew would be perfect on me and even better yet…it has pockets! Score! Yes, I'm a freak about having pockets in dresses or skirts. I'm not sure why…it's not like I'm carrying around tons of stuff in them, but I think it speaks to the amount of effort that has gone into making the garment and hey, it looks cute when you can put your hands in your pockets.
