After a 17-month hiatus, the award winning and highly entertaining show Mad Men is back. And thank god! Oh, how I missed it! While we have cable, we chose not to loaf around our apartment in 60s attire, but instead Patrick and myself joined up with Carla of Bohemian Vintage, and her husband, and incidentally Stephanie of beta moss, to watch Mad Men on the big screen at the Hollywood Theatre.
The even was hosted by Nico Bella of Fleur de Lethal Cinematheque, who offers up unique and fun film experiences such as the Moulin Rouge sing-along coming in October! And you can bet your sweet bippy I’ll be there! Prior to the screening, Nico invited those dressed up to come up on stage for a Best Dressed contest. Each of us strutted our stuff to applause and cheers from the crowd, and whoever gained the most applause was the winner. And you want to know who won? This girl did! I have every intention of going each week and “dressing up” of course (I say this with quotes, because I wear this kind of stuff on a regular basis anyway). And I will also be sharing each Mad Men screening outfit with you!
As for the show itself, it was fantastic! I missed Roger Sterling so very much, and am very intrigued with what character development is happening, especially with Lane Pryce and the new Mrs. Draper! With regards to fashion, we are finally into the mid-60s with psychedelic prints and super short hemlines! In middle-school this was my favorite kind of fashion, and I wore many of my mum’s clothes from high school and college, some of which will make an appearance during this season of Mad Men. So stay tuned!
