Last night, I decided to go to some Nuit Blanche events with a couple of my friends.
Part of Culture Days, Nuit Blanche was one all-night event full of culture and art.
I took advantage of one of the Mad Men themed events and dressed up. The era itself was a little puzzling to me, as the show takes place in the early 1960’s – but is BEFORE the more characteristic trends of the 1960’s were around ( Such as Mod style, Twiggy, etc! )
So from my understanding, it was in between those 1960’s trends and the trends of the 50’s. Hemlines were higher and silhouettes were beginning to change. 1950’s inspired makeup was still popular, such as red lips and cat eyes.
The fashion on the show Mad Men is also quite office-wear oriented.
I really enjoy learning about the fashion of different eras.
I decided to wear my dress from Miss Patina and some simple heels. I’m not much of a hair stylist but I figured my ‘do was at least hinting towards retro.
My favourite parts of the evening was the 70’s/80’s rock music video singalong and the random gang of denim-clad singing gentlemen. The evening was completed with a delicious poutine from Winnipeg’s Smoke’s Poutinerie!
