Actress Christina Ricci was born in the 1980s, but the 1960s were definitely her favorite era for fashion. So it’s not surprising to hear that dressing up and acting on her new 1961-set sitcom, Pan Am, is her “dream job.”

“[The show is] very glamorous. When we were on our ‘layovers’ we were dressed up really glamorous,” Ricci told PEOPLE recently during an Alexander Wang bash at the PlayStation Living Room in New York. “I love being dressed up and very ladylike.”

However, she’s also conscious of how to dress for her petite frame. “I get lost in clothing that isn’t really fitted to my body,” she said. Looks that combat that? “I could live in a pencil skirt,” she shared. “It’s like the ideal skirt for my body.”

But regardless of her likes and dislikes, she constantly finds herself drawn to those looks of the past. The celebrated star says she’s a “big vintage shopper” and likes the variety that ’60s clothes offer. “That era … it’s really feminine,” she explained. “[And it] also had a great sense of humor about it.”

Catch Ricci in Pan Am, which premieres Sunday, Sept. 25, on ABC.

Everyone in Seattle is starting to sport the post-apocalyptic decrtstoucned look, I want those Fiorentini and Baker from Barney’s boots so bad, but lots of black, lots of boots, skinny, layers. I like it.
