Holiday parties have started! And my first one was Mad Men-themed.
Which means big hair (got a blow-out at Blo in Yaletown).
Big lashes (got some outrageous fakies at Noir Lash Lounge).
And big shout-outs to the way advertising agencies were in the sixties. (The party planners even customized Popeye candy cigarette packs for guests. You’ll notice “Kelsey” brand’s slogan is “High Flavour. High Fashion.” You’ll also notice I’m not condoning smoking, just the eating of candy.)
Surprisingly, not a single piece of my sixties-inspired look was vintage. My dress was custom-made (you might recognize it from my Twitter avatar), my printed coat is H & M and my shoes are Calvin Klein. What does it say about my style that I can create costumes out of things I wear normally? Wait. Don’t answer that.
