My friend Mary passed on this link on dressing like AMC’s MadMen characters. Personally, I hope that dressing like any one of them doesn’t somehow turn me into one, because they seem rather… tragic. This AMC blog puts it into proper perspective: “You can use Mad Men as inspiration to pull together an outfit infused with major glamor.” I’m so glad to learn, for instance, that the Lady Exec has it tough: “Being an intellectual showgirl isn’t easy….” Although with such pricey pieces, my sewing ventures are justified!
One reason I love this series is that it demonstrates how clothing should fit, and that having an imperfect figure (not that there are many of these on the show) can be flattering in the right fit (and the right undergarments!).
