I am currently watching the first season of Mad Men, which is so good! I love the subtle sense of humor and the drama. Plus, the 1960s fashion and style is unbelievable. A-line skirts, silk scarves, and loose blouses: elegant yet casual at the same time. It makes me want to dress-up.
During this time, the women played the subservient, domestic roles. It's good to see how times are changing.
"I'm from Bayridge; we have manners." Bayridge still hasn't changed.
It's also surprising how often the actors smoke cigarettes on screen. They lit a cigarette in the office, on the subway, and at home with all the children present. Isn't it crazy to think smoking was a nonchalant hobby? Now there are so many regulations and warnings, yet people still choose to smoke.
I was walking by Grand Central the other day, and I stumbled upon Banana Republic's Mad Men collection. The style is just drop dead gorgeous. I have no money right now, but it doesn't hurt to look, right? Here are my favorites:
I love blouses with ties and textured cardigans. Love at first sight.
Finely tailored dresses with just the right amount of volume.
Modern coat with texture.
Banana Republic, you know me so well.
