Mad Men Halloween

I work in a Marketing and Communications Department at a company that always celebrates Halloween. Today, when we discussed our plans for the day, a couple of men in our department suggested that our theme be Mad Men. Wait, what? The boys suggested a theme that requires them to wear suits and encourages the girls to do some vintage shopping? How fab is that?

This gives me a great incentive to finish my coral polka dot outfit. I was thinking the 1940s skirt and 1950s top combo might be a little off-era, but then I did some Internet research and found a photo of Peggy from Mad Men wearing something very similar to my plan.

I think my outfit will work just fine for 1962. Now, the boys have to find skinny ties and tidy pocket squares. And we’re all going to be “smoking” candy cigarettes and drinking “mocktails.”

This might even be better than the year we did vintage TV, and I brought in my heels, pearls and vacuum cleaner to get in touch with my inner June Cleaver.

It will definitely be better than the year we did Caddyshack, and I was a giant dancing gopher.
