My roommate and I were tossing around the idea of a having a Mad Men poker party. The guys were planning on dressing up, suit jackets, Fedoras, etc, but I have NO idea what i should wear. Do you think goodwill would have some good finds? any idea’s for decorations, food, and drinks?
Any help would be appreciated.

I’m sure you can find a party dress at a thrift or vintage shop.
decor- candy cigarettes and ashtrays, old matchbooks and lighters
also from the thrift shop- retro champagne or cocktail glasses and trays, cocktail shakers and ice buckets, bowls of onions, olives and maraschino cherries
an old rotary dial phone if you can find one
Food- retro appis like devilled eggs, cheese balls, meat balls, ubes of cheese, pineapple chunks,and maraschino cherries on cocktail picks

Look for a knee-length dress with a cinched-in waist – either full or pencil skirt. Or cigarette pants and a cute top, with heels. Pearl choker necklace. Red lipstick.
Lots of Goodwill and thrift shops will have dresses like this, but the show has really brought back the look, so several clothing lines are doing some nice dresses that are inspired by it. Banana Republic did a whole Mad Men line last year – it was amazing.
