Madness (See Jane Wear)

                                               c/o Banana Republic Mad Men trench, gap pants, F21 necklace, Elizabeth and James sunglasses
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?

So tell me, do you watch Mad Men?

I am obsessed with Mad Men after Chloe kept talking about it so one day I rented the seasons I had missed on Netflix and OMG, I fell in love. And now that they are showing past seasons at 6:00 AM on Sundays, I am getting up to watch.
Love the trench!

MG said...

I live Mad Men and haven't been able to get into the show at all. But I adore the era and the BR collection!
