My Betty Draper-Inpired Rosegal Wishlist

Posted on the 14 August 2014 by Ileodarod @ilevillegas
 I've been watching a lot of Mad Men lately. I'm still at Season 3, but I'm definitely drawn to the 60s vibe already. They say this is the show that helped the 60s fashion make a come back.
I cannot verify this information of course but every time Betty Draper is on screen, I can definitely see what they mean. She may be a cold, stoic women, but her style is definitely not flat.
Unfortunately, I live in a small city, and I don't have access to all the nice vintage dresses made these days. So what better place to look than online? There are plenty of online boutiques, and one such particular boutique that specifically carries vintage fashion is
"RoseGal was started by a group of friends who all share a deep and abiding passion for stunning clothing and fashion. As a leading global online shopping destination, they provide a wide range of high quality clothing styles at factory direct prices along with a dedicated professional service to customers all over the world."
So now I bring to you my Betty Draper Inspired Wishlist.
1) Floral print was extremely popular during the 60s. In the show, B is seen wearing floral dresses whether in formal parties, or a nice summer picnic with her family.

2) Blue floral prints are more subtle and more elegant. Honestly I think B should wear this color more. It goes well with her cold stare.My Betty Draper-Inpired Rosegal WishlistsourceThis look easily translates to modern times. Blue floral print is quieter and more reserved. This is perfect for times when you don't feel like standing out, but still likes to wear something fun.

3) Pregnancy didn't stop B from being stylish. Sometimes she reminds me of Rachel Zoey, wondering what Chanel dress to wear in the delivery room. Anyway, she is very pregnant with her third child in this picture, but she still donned(get it?) this lace dress really well.

4) Pencil dresses are also very 60s.My Betty Draper-Inpired Rosegal Wishlist

I'm not especially good in picking my accessories but because the floral print is already loud, all I really need is a nice pair of stud earrings and a thin bracelet or a watch to complete the look. My Betty Draper-Inpired Rosegal WishlistVintage Jewel Neck Floral Printed Spliced Sleeveless Dress For WomenOthers:Rosegal also has items that are vintage-inspired modern items. I'm a sucker for vintage looking bags and here are the ones that stood out for me.

2) A crossbody knapsack bag has always been on my wishlist and this one's really cheap for only $19.95My Betty Draper-Inpired Rosegal Wishlist

3) I know you saw this coming. This is not vintage, but my wish list is not complete without a cat print bag. I am obviously in love with cats, hence I love items with cats, but I prefer those that are subtle. I tend to steer clear of items that shouts "I AM A CRAZY CAT LADY" too much.
