THE BIG REVEAL!!! - Mad Men III


If you stop and listen carefully you might be able to hear it. A faint high pitched squeal that's not dissimilar to the sound a jacket potato makes when you put in the oven to bake and forget to poke holes in it (really creepy if you've ever experienced it). It's the sound of me squealing with excitement all the way from Melbourne, Australia. Why?

It's MADMEN III REVEAL TIME!

EEEEEEeeeeeEEEEEeeeeEEEE!!!

If you've been following on Instagram you may have already seen me reveal a few gems.
But now it's time for the whole ENCHILADA!

So sit down, put on some red lipstick and enjoy!

Stay tuned for next week's blog post; we have some fabulous vintage brooches from Ruemiraldi to give away. 

It is FREAKING ME OUT how awesome these creations are! This is always my favourite time of the year and I'm continuously inspired by this community. Thanks to everyone who took part in the challenge; you all look fabulous!

    I don't know what I'm going to do without Man Men and I'm so glad we can celebrate the final season this way. I hope there will be a Man Men challenge next year, I heard the final season will be in two parts? is that right?

  21. These are fantastic! Such a fun event/activity...initiative? I wish I could have played too. I'd be lying if I said MadMen has not ended up having a bit of an influence on my sewing/wardrobe the last few years. But I was doing this instead so I guess I can't complain too much: http://themodernmantuamaker.wordpress.com/2014/04/04/jimminy-crispies-theres-a-charles-james-gown-in-my-living-room/

    I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that I may get to play next year (there will be a next year, right? please?)

  22. Oh all the ladies rocked this recreation! I don't watch Mad Men but I love their fashions. It looked like everyone had a great time. I must remember to begin to watch this show so I can jump on the bandwagon next time!

  28. Wow, so many beautiful outfits again. Thanks for organising this. I am rather pleased with myself that I finally managed to take part. :) Btw. I couldn't remember the exact reveal date and kept waiting for this post to be announced on your Facebook page...obviously, FB doesn't show all of your posts in my newsfeed because I never saw your MadMen post.

  29. Love this but totally gutted that I didn't get to make mine as I have spent the last month in hospital.
