NOOOO!!! I cannot believe that Mad Men the final season is coming up this Sunday! I’m not ready, can’t make me watch it..no no no! I don’t want my favorite vintage ad men and women to be out of my life for forever!!!
Lol! Okay all joking aside, it IS the final season of Mad Men and whether you watched the show or did not watch the show you have to admit that it did contribute a lot to our current culture. Vintage cocktails are uber popular again, 1950s & 60s clothes are not just seen in second-hand stores anymore and drinking at the work place has become a “can’t we bring that back?” conversation everywhere 🙂
I know one of my favorite thing about the show has been the clothing. Every week I would sit in front of my TV and ohhh and awww with each passing outfit and dream of having the clothing designer of the show land on my lap with every gorgeous dress I saw..in my size! Sadly that will never happen but a girl can dream, right?
Lets check out some of my favorite outfits.
This outfit that Betty Draper is wearing in season 1 is something I would wear in a heart beat.
As you move thru the seasons you pretty much realize that Joan could wear a paper bag to work every day and still look amazing. This simple but gorgeous dress is no exception. The colour is wonderful on her.
I want, I want I want! Betty for the win for the cutest tennis outfit..ever!
I love blue and both of these dresses are just lovely.
Season 2 finally saw Peggy in some nice dresses as opposed to the frumpy ones she wore in season 1.
Yes, Yes..and oh..Yes! I have a skirt like Joan on the right but I don’t look as good as her in it lol!
I think I love this outfit because it just screams spring/summer which are my favorite seasons.
This is one of my favorite Peggy outfits because it is so me! I could totally see myself wearing this to the office.
Wow! this dress is just..wow!
Another Peggy dress that I would wear over and over again.
Each one of these outfits are glorious and wonderful. I love Joan’s brooch on her flowered dress as well.
As the show moved more into the 1960s I fell a bit out of love with the outfits as the 60’s are not my favorite fashion era. However there were still some great outfits even if I was not oohing and awwing anymore.
Did you have a favorite outfit or two from the show? Will you be watching the final season?
If you live in Toronto you should join myself and the Toronto Vintage Society at the Cadillac Lounge on Sunday evening for our Mad Men party, it will be a blast!
