Like other people who have good taste in television, I have been watching Mad Men for the past few years. I got into it several summers ago and rented Seasons 1 and 2 on DVD (RIP Blockbuster), and have been addicted to the snarkiness, cigarette smoke and sexual innuendos ever since. Mad Men, in addition to having a helluva plot, is a fun show to watch due to the eye candy. Not only does it star one of the prettiest men ever (Jon Hamm sat next to me at Boqueria once and I have been convinced we are soulmates ever since), but the sets and the wardrobes are an absolutely stunning homage to the ’50s and ’60s.
I had been planning this post as a What Would Betty Draper Wear, but, as dedicated Mad Men-ers, Betty Draper is unfit to be wearing anything but a muumuu these days, and as much as I love me a house-dress, that wouldn’t have been fun for anyone (on a separate note–how did Matthew Weiner get January Jones to agree to actually look fat on national television? I know she was pregnant when filming but she was about 1/3 of the size they have made her character throughout her 9 months. January Jones, you skinny betch. You are the worst).
Thank the lawd for Megan Draper. Megan Draper, you perfect little ray of sartorial sunshine. You have me whipping up all sorts of pastel outfits while humming Zou Bisou Bisou completely off-key. Can I please have all your garments?
Here’s what I’m thinking Megan Draper would wear today. Please don’t judge me on the historical accuracy of the footwear–women in the ’60s had fabulous clothes, but terrible shoes, and I just couldn’t do that to the internets.
To The Office:
To perform her office duties of smoking cigarettes, walking around pouting, and showing Don her cleavage, Megan would don (see what I did there?)…
[Blouse: Marc By Marc Jacobs (Prettttty sure this is the perfect silk white blouse), Pants: Jil Sander (a zillion percent off on The Outnet!), Necklace: House of Harlow, Purse: Kate Spade/I need to order this immediately, Bracelets: See By Chloe, Coat: Acne, Shoes: Valentino (if a kitten heel could ever be fierce, it is this kitten heel]
Out On The Town:
To impress clients, seduce her husband in front of a room of strangers, and make gap-teeth look absolutely perfect, Megan would wear…
[Blazer: Stella McCartney (Also a zillion percent off on the Outnet, but would still require me a serious Ramen diet to purchase), Shoes: Chrissie Morris (Chrissie Morris--I do not know who you are, but to me, you are perfect. I would sell a foot to buy these shoes. Although I'd imagine they look considerably less cute if you only have one foot), Dress: Marni, Purse: Kate Spade, Necklace: Topshop]
On A Casual Weekend:
To look flawless while perching on random furniture in her excellently-decorated apartment, or perhaps prove to us all that Don is not a vampire and take him on a stroll through Central Park, Megan would wear…
[Blouse: Romwe, Jeans: Current-Elliot (On that note, I just ordered a pair of floral jeans on the internets. You will never guess where they are from, unless you are a 14 year old girl throwing a fit at the mall because your mother won't buy you another Limited Too crop top. If you guessed dELiA*s, you are correct, I am embarassed, and will someone please contact Delia for me and ask her why she insists on CaPiTaLiZiNg her name L*ike that?), Hat: Witchery (But really, NY street vendor will do), Blazer: Zimmerman/Being Currently Added To My Cart, Necklace: Bauble Bar, Purse: Kate Spade, Shoes: Report Signature]
