Yesterday was the premiere of the fifth season of Mad Men and I could not be more excited. The show has been on haitus for 525 days (which Etsy so kindly reminded us in their status update) and I could not be more eager to watch the new episode! Unfortunately I have to wait an extra day because I couldn't make it out to any of the premiere events here in Chicago (and I don't have cable).

The black ruffle collar dress that I'm wearing is from the early 1960's. I was so lucky to find it last week because it's so difficult to find things from the 40s/50s/60s that are plus sized and not a mu-mu. I think I'll be putting it in the shop later this week (I need another black dress like I need a hole in the head). I've got to say this isn't my best 1960's outfit, my laziness overcame me when I was putting it on-- if I were to dress in real period gear I would have worn tights, gloves, and a light overcoat buuuut I was lazy and it was hot. haha!

Did you guys dress up for the premiere? I'd love to see what you wore!

Oh also today is the last day to get 20% off your purchase in the shop! Use code SPRINGSHOWERS
