I am an avid Mad Men viewer (highly recommended...get the DVDs and start from the beginning), so when Banana Republic contacted me to wear a piece from their Mad Men Fall '11 Collection, I jumped at the chance. I feel a little Joan in this and if I had an up-do, then I'd definitely be channeling Betty (sorry Peggy). Clearly, I love the story lines of Mad Men, but the costumes draw me in as well; I've even found myself taking some dressing cues from the ladies. Since I work in a corporate environment, I love a good pencil skirt, à la Joan Holloway. This trench speaks (volumes) for itself, so I felt simple was the way to go. Black cigarette pants and plain, nude pumps--I think Betty would be proud, no?
