Oh, to live in the world of creative copy, sexy fashions and cutthroat business that is Mad Men! Set in 1960s New York, the stylized drama follows the lives of the ruthless men and women who ruled Madison Avenue advertising. Watching the dramas unfold is captivating, to be sure, but the spot-on period fashions and prop styling makes Mad Men a show to watch. The premiere of season three has me all atwitter, so today's Etsy Finds are dedicated to achieving a pitch-perfect 1960s look, whomever your favorite character may be.


Peggy Olson

Quick witted and fastidious copywriter Peggy Olson is determined to ascend the corporate ladder, her way. Though derided by office manager Joan Holloway for "dressing like a little girl," Peggy keeps her look classic, prim and professional. Play up your demure side with scarves, collared dresses and jumpers.
