Mad Men Style Wiggle Dress


Hi guys and dolls,
I always swoon over the dresses that the secretaries wear in the TV drama, 
Mad Men, set in the 1960s. I love dresses with collars, bows and pussy bows so when my mother got me this wiggle dress a couple of years ago, I squealed with delight! I've worn it to work but it's also perfect evening/cocktail attire. For you lovely readers, I slipped it on yesterday and pulled out my notepad.
 My typewriter was out of order ;) 
******************************************************
Ciao bambole e bambolotti,
Impazzisco per gli abiti delle segretarie nella serie TV, Mad Men, ambientata negli anni sessanta. Impazzisco altrettanto per i vestiti che indossano le donne nelle serie Il Paradiso delle Signore e Velvet. Come si resiste ad un vestito con un colletto o un fiocco? Per questo ho fatto un salto di gioia quando mia madre mi ha regalato questo vestito a tubino con sia colletto che fiocchetto! Ho subito tirato fuori il mio block notes. La mia macchina da scrivere è fuori servizio ;)

It's incredible how the cut of this dress and the belt make me look much thinner than I am! I did squeeze the belt real tight ;) Often, modern dresses make me look like a blob. It's really true that old fashioned dresses are flattering.

Stressed out secretary (my hair looks stressed out too).
This is how I sit and take notes. It's a very comfortable position.....

Posare come una pin-up è come fare lo yoga avanzato.
Ho usato muscoli che neanche sapevo di avere! :D

******************************************************
I tell ya, attempting pin-up poses is like doing intense yoga. 
I used muscles I didn't even know I had! 

Gotta rush! I think Don Draper wants more whiskey.......
