"Mad Men" style....

This month we're looking towards clearing out the wardrobe of those heavy winter garments and finding those little gems you can wear in warmer weather time and time again. Spring is definitely in the air and I for one am looking forward to getting out the Spring collection.
Floaty florals,block colours,1950's clinched waist and metallics are trending right now.
One of my favourite key looks is the 1950's one.
It's pretty easy finding those key,classic pieces and a great way to introduce your own take on fashion is by wearing one off Vintage frocks. Of course looking for original vintage dresses can be difficult but we do get a nice selection coming into the Beautiful Attire boutique!
As a fan of all things 1950'5/60's Americana we're in love with the Mad Men style silhouette and of course Joan Harris comes to mind. We can see her in her this pretty cobalt silk number in the offices of Sterling Cooper. Sexy,feminine and professional just like Joan!
