k150_23SZDheel iconI love dressing in vintage. The fabric and the styles of the clothes from past eras just seem so much more interesting and beautiful to me than what you find off the racks in the malls. My favorite eras are 1940s-1960s, when pinup ruled pop culture with their sexy silhouettes and glamorous makeup. Here I styled a 1950’s look from my closet. The dress, purse and bracelet are vintage. I call this my Betty Draper outfit because it reminds of the character on Mad Men.
