mad men on the brain

Its February and you know what that means — Mom 2.0 Summit is coming!

2010 Mom 2.0 Summit - FEB 18-20

There are so many things at Mom 2.010 to be excited about that I can’t process it all, so I’ll take it step by step. Right now I’m spending time thinking about the Thursday night welcome party: Martinis, Music and Mad Men. What to wear?

If you know me personally, you’ll know that clothes aren’t really my “thing.” I mean, I care what I wear, but I’d just as soon wear the t-shirt + jeans variation uniform every day if life would allow it (and mostly it does). But a Mad Men party is a Mad Men party. You just don’t skimp on that one, right?

So I went to the Mad Men site to do a little research and 2 hours later I emerged with a sense of direction. It’s the gateway between the 50s and the 60s. This means prints, pencil skirts, cupcake dresses, pillbox hats, matte lipstick, and so on and so on.

And to make it easy peasy, I had this brilliant idea: Our awesome neighbor Hong Kong Vintage has, without a doubt, the perfect costume outfit waiting for me. I’ll report back after I go. (And hey – they have an online shop too!)

What are you wearing? Need some suggestions? More tips on how to dress like a Mad Woman here.
