Simply Mad for Mad Men

Sex, intrigue, betrayal, competition – what’s not to love about the popular “Mad Men” series on AMC? And then of course there are the clothes! The absolutely wonderful fashion of the period, portrayed so well by the savvy women of the mythical ad agency.

Thanks to my good friend Joan of Catbooks1940s, I’m officially hooked on the show and thought it would be fun to play “dress up” with the female characters, and this month’s listings at “Metro Retro Vintage”.

Sultry Secretary Joan Holloway ‘cat walks’ the office corridors in body hugging style.

A smart checkered dress set for the smart and demure Peggy Olson.

The elegant Rachel Menken arrives for dinner.

Naughty temptress Bobbie Barrett is no stranger to bib chokers.

It may be a Mad Men world, but the fashion no doubt belongs to Mad Women.
