Well, hello end of January 2014. A second ago it was mid-December and it was Christmas all up in here and now whoops…here we are at the tail end of January. Hi!

I’ve neglected this space because I’ve been a busy little beaver updating my shop. Lots of really incredible vintage dresses are now available. I hit a landmine of vintage glory a couple of weekends ago and I’m still working on getting them all up in the shop. In the meantime, here is a roundup of the vintage I’ve gotten into the shop this week.

Each day this week I’ll be posting a collection of vintage costume ideas from my shop, Thrifty Vintage Kitten!

Mad Men costume Don and Betty Draper

My husband and me as Don and Betty Draper, Halloween 2010. This was the very first vintage dress I bought!

It’s October 1st and by the looks of all the Halloween decorations popping up on the houses in my neighborhood, I’d say it’s time to start Halloween costume shopping! Thrifty Vintage Kitten is stocked FULL of vintage dresses that would make awesome Halloween costumes. I know back in 2010, before I even owned a vintage clothing shop, or actually even really knew what Etsy was, I was on a hunt for a vintage 50s housewife dress so I could go as Betty Draper. I searched high and low through every thrift store I could find, but I came up empty handed. Little did I know all the best stuff I was looking for existed right on Etsy! I ended up finding a pretty dress (shown above) but I did overpay. You won’t have that problem at Thrifty Vintage Kitten! My shop has great prices and an incredible inventory.

So to start off this week’s series, I present you with Mad Men-inspired looks. (Or have you seen the new series from Showtime, Masters of Sex? Whoa. All I can say.) These garments would all fit into that era perfectly!
