The compact was the ultimate female accessory in the era of Mad Men, perfect to reapply your lipstick and pretty enough to start a conversation over cocktails.

This lovely compact from Spring Street was inspired by the ladies of Mad Men and is sold exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue. The enameled compact features a chic black and white palette and bold flower embellishment made of crystals and glass pearls. The classic feel of this compact is ultra feminine and would make a beautiful gift for women of all ages.
