Mad Men Fashion




So by now you know I'm batty about "Mad Men." As much as I enjoy the writing and the acting, I have to say at least half of my enjoyment comes from the stylistic touches--the decorating, the furniture, and, of course, the fashion.

Today, I was checking out a piece on Jezebel, which features the writer's favorite looks from this week's episode. Which, of course, made me want to immediately buy some Mad Men-inspired styles of my own.

I did a quick bit of research, and found out that Michael Kors' fall ready-to-wear line is at least partially inspired by "Mad Men." (My favorite outfit from the line is the dress featured in the pic above. Not quite as wild about the pastel fur-collared coat.) Unfortunately, dresses in that line regularly clock in at around two grand, and my definition of a major splurge for clothes is usually limited at a few hundred dollars (and that's a pretty big splurge for me). So, I'm going to be keeping my eye out at Banana and The Limited, on the sale racks at Anthropologie (and, if the fashion gods are on my side, H&M) to see if I can get the look for less.

I adore Mad Men style, and I love me some Michael Kors. Good thing the price of those dresses is so far out of reach.

Maybe some of the less popular ones will make it to the sale racks at Macy's or Stein Mart or something.

Here's to hoping!

Sorry for the late comment, but Banana Republic has a new designer and some of the dresses for fall are awesome. Not worth full price, but if you can get ahold of one of their 20-30% off coupons, they are definitely worth it.
