|These fabulous dresses are from stopstaringclothing.com. The below the-knee lenght is more of a 1950s than 60s style though.|
The first two dresses are from ideeli.com (Eliza J), the red one is from shopstyle.com(Suzi Chin for Maggy Boutique.)
Don't forget to accesorise but don't overdo it - Joan's style is all about minimalism and elegance:
Joan's look wouldn't be complete without her signature gold pen necklace. I was SO excited when I found it on 1928.com! You can also buy a similar one on etsy.com.
If you want to complete the look with 1960s-style lingerie, check out La Senza's Lucy Lane vintage line,Agent Provocateur or What Katie Did Boutique. It may be a good idea to buy shapewear to define your silhouette, highlighting bust, waist and bottom. This will bring you a step closer to Joan's beautiful,curvy figure!
Last but not least- makeup! I was very excited to come across last year's interview where Lana Horochowski, Mad Men's Makeup Department Head, shared a few insider tips on how to recreate Joan's makeup look. Lana, who described Joan as "always put together, very sassy and sexy", said that key products for creating her look are eyeliner and strip lashes. Lana also revealed the exact products she uses when putting together Joan's makeup look (yes, you guessed it -I'm planning on buying every single one of them!!;). These are: MAC's Cream Colour Base in Virgin Isle, Fluidline in Blacktrack and Rich Ground, brown and black, and Eye Shadow in Soft Brown (all these are MAC products). Lastly, Lena had a great advice on incorporating Joan's style into everyday makeup look: "Replacing gloss and sheer or shimmer lipsticks with matte reds, bright pinks and corals help screate a more retro look. Instead of a powder blush try using creme in pinks and corals to create a flushed looking cheek. For evening, strip lashes are always a bonus".
I hope you enjoyed reading this post - let me know what you think about my outfit choices! :)
