Glimpsed at the Creative Alliance: Courtney Peterson

The Drink Like A Mad Man cocktail party at the Creative Alliance at the Patterson was an event made for Courtney Peterson, 24. The Studio 1612 hair salon receptionist already has a "modern vintage" style. "I like to stick with a classic hourglass silhouette, with high-waisted skirts," she said. "And I like to do a lot of cardigans." So, to honor the return of the TV series about a 1960s era ad agency, Peterson started with one of those skirts, a black velvet pencil skirt a former co-worker had given her. She then added a red V-neck Mossimo cardigan from Target over a black lace Forever 21 camisole. Her vintage white opaque hose were from her grandmother. She found her black patent leather Shi pumps at Journeys. The quilted red patent leather Lux De Ville handbag came from her favorite website -- And that necklace, a vintage pen pendant on a long chain -- a gift from her boyfriend -- in honor of Peterson's favorite "Mad Men" character. (Office manager Joan Holloway has one just like it.)
