“The thing the sixties did was to show us the possibilities and the responsibility that we all had. It wasn’t the answer. It just gave us a glimpse of the possibility.” ~ John Lennon
Mad Men, which I find no one in the US knows (maybe Canadians), is a huge thing in the US among a certain group of TV viewers. We wait with impatience as each season comes up and then wait for each episode to spin its tale. It takes place in the mid-60s and the main character has moved to a high rise apartment in Manhattan.
Irene, who I show here, is not a character in Mad Men—merely a neighbor down the hallway who has her own apartment. I placed her in this setting because of Barbra Kungler’s fantastic new mesh dress with its mid-60s styling. Long on style and short in skirt, it’s a great 60s look for a single girl in the city. Of course, she never realized while she was enjoying her “liberation” in 60s New York City, a real revolution was going on.
Irene’s apartment is a wonderful skybox from Cory Edo. With seating for at least 8 in the living room, a great Hi-Fi and period lamps, it’s a happenin’ pad for the young, successful career girl (living high on Daddy’s money). Cory Edo has hit on the perfect look for this apartment from the colors and proportions to the accoutrement of the apartment.
Her lovely pale look comes courtesy of Aida Ewing at the new Dressing Room. With its beautiful eye makeup and delicately touched lips, eyebrows and freckles, it belies our young city girl’s innocence. The wonderful vintage updo from Alair Cortes completes this look with its sweet curls escaping from a sleek style.
