'60s SIREN

Me wearing, Hedonia's Pippa vintage lace dress, with Marc Jacobs slides and vintage earrings.

As Mad Men series 5 draws to a close (I’m a bit behind- working my way through Sky+), I’m feeling very inspired by the latest Mrs. Don Draper, and her truly Swinging Sixties wardrobe. And nothing spells out the bygone era quite like a simple shift dress; Christopher Kane made it relevant for spring/summer ’12, particularly with his gorgeous jewel encrusted design (as worn by Alexa Chung to the British Fashion Awards earlier this year), so I was pleasantly surprised to find this little number from affordable fashion line Hedonia. Not only is it great for channeling this season’s Sixties mood, it’s also ideal for nailing spring/summer 12’s white dress trend. Worn here with some Marc Jacobs perspex slides (which are also having a moment), Hedonia’s Pippa vintage lace dress makes for the perfect one-shop outfit for many a summer soiree- be it day or night.... Megan Draper, eat your heart out.

In detail: Hedonia's vintage lace Pippa dress, worn with a Felix Rey clutch, Folli Follie cat ring, water pearl bracelet, and cocktail ring by Marks & Spencer.
