MAC “Such Flare!” matte A61 lipstick {which ended up on my forehead at one point during the night… the reason I rarely wear red lips!}

The husband and I had a blast dressing up as Don and Betty Draper for our Halloween party on Saturday night… so much fun we may just dress up again tonight to hand out candy to trick-or-treaters!

After searching every thrift shop in the area, I actually found my early 60’s dress on Etsy {J Antiques shop} and while I was looking for anything but black, this dress was in perfect vintage condition and priced well. And though a bit too big, I was happy to find a dress that fit at all… and it’s a costume, right?! Even the perfectionist in me is forgiving when it comes to costumes but just barely. The empire waist bodice has ornate black beading and a huge black satin bow just above my actual waist while the skirt of the dress is sheer and fine pleated with a flip at the edge. It’s actually quite pretty… the husband said I should wear dresses like it more often, lol.

I teased the front of my hair, created a “pouf” and pinned it back leaving a piece down in the front similar to a look Betty wore once and then faux bobbed the rest of my hair after hot rolling it. And while it was much messier than Betty’s ever is, it was good enough because I ran out of time!

We found the husband’s vintage 60’s suit at Iguana and it fit like a glove. I had the vintage 60’s skinny tie but we had to buy the suspenders, shoes and shirt. {I found him in the bedroom watching a youtube video on how to tie a tie on my iphone… priceless}
