Thanks everyone...I am a bit behind so Megan Draper isn't in the series I am watching but looks more like something I can do.

Agree BOF just a theme but wasn't really sure how best to do 60s...

It just means dress fifties style, doesn't it? You don't have to "be" one of the characters- its a theme, not fancy dress, so I wouldn't worry too much.

Ha ha! Great minds!

X-post with Hetaera!

How about going as Megan Draper? Sounds like you probably look more like her. Mini shift dress, back-combed bob, pale lips and flicky eyeliner a-go-go! www.graziadaily.co.uk/fashion/archive/2012/06/11/megan-drapers-mad-men-outfits-rock-we-look-back-at-a-very-fashionable-series-fiv.htm

You could always mix things up and go as Megan in Zou Bisou Bisou mode. It's a more sixties look and would work if you had good legs and went all out sultry!

If you're slim and tall and not busty, I would go with Betty Draper. The Joan look depends on being really busty/curvy I think.

You need a really nipped in waist, full circle skirt outfit I reckon. Red lippie. Curl your hair and pin it up.
