Mad Men



Of course I am in love with Mad Men on AMC.
Set in 1960 New York, the daring new series is about the lives of the ruthlessly competitive men and women of Madison Avenue advertising, an ego-driven world where key players make an art of the sell while their private world gets sold.

The booze, the smoking, the smarmy sexism and good God, the clothes!
Sexy secretary dresses, full skirt cocktail dresses and everything in between.
I think my favorite would have to be the body enhancing outfits Joan (Joan is on the right in the picture above) wears and the more "good girl" garments of Betty Draper.

Joan would have loved this Suzy Perette (which were copies of Paris designs that the working girl could afford) wiggle dress or worn this great pinup sweater from Darlene with a really tight skirt:

Betty would wear this perfect pink shirtwaist dress or the ice blue vintage cocktail dress below:Of course you can feed your inner Joan, Betty, Peggy and any other character you find compelling at Damn Good Vintage.

I caught this show the other night, and the clothing was great. Hopefully 'The Secretary' look will be the hot new style for Fall. I bet bullet bras will be on every girl's shopping list too!
