Mad Men Style

With the AMC show Mad Men coming back for another season, I would like to showcase some really fun and funky hats from the 1960s.

Hats back in the 1960s were fun to wear. They came in shapes like an English Bobby would wear. Bright abstract prints, leopard prints, Jackie Kennedy pillbox hats just to name a few styles.

Blazin' Hot

I've been on a blazer kick lately. I've always been drawn to velvet and corduroy has been making a comeback. And I could wax poetry on my admiration for suede elbow patches. The layered look of a cute collared shirt with a cozy sweater pulled over and a blazer jacket, cute cozy knitted scarf, jeans and great leather boots is just the perfect outfit. Over at Vintspiration I've listed four new blazer jackets in the shop - two velvet and two corduroy. Come by and check them out and Vintage Bulletin readers, you can snag an additional 10% off when you use VBULLETIN code at checkout.

Silk Wedding coat 1895

This very old but gorgeous Cream Silk Coat has heavy embroidery large sleeves and original tassels.
I was told was worn by Maggie Hart on her wedding day in 1895 in Glasgow Scotland Her great granddaughter Judi Sheppard gave this to me for display purposes. She said the Maggie went on to have 5 children and her husband was a pharmacist who eventually moved his family to Vancouver canada. I love vintage items that have a story to tell
