10 Mar Mad Men Look
Enter: Stage left ( Roger: Joanie can you come in here a minute? Joan: Roger you know we can’t do this. Roger: Do what honey, come on over here and pour me a drink, and yourself one” Joan: Why Roger, what’s going on that I have to drink?” Roger: We all decided you need to become partner” Joan: Was it this dress? This beautiful Ann Taylor, red floral dress, and these new glasses I just got..
Back to reality….I bought this floral poppy sheath dress last year at Ann Taylor, and it WAS love at first sight. I love florals, lace, lots of girly stuff. Once I wore it, I thought I could be in the cast of Mad Men. Not quite the expert as the twist for the hair as an updo, as “Joan” or lets say her stylist would do, so I kept it down. When I was asked by Readers.com to model these, I was excited. These are the same style as I wore with the leopard cat eye last week, except black , which as we know can go with everything. I tried to get my hubby to use a tri-pod and pose as Don Draper, as he could slick his hair back, put on a suit, and pass. He would rather be, “behind the scenes”. Besides posing in the cat eyeglaases, The Brit, and wearing a the 60’s looking dress straight from Mad Men, having red hair like Joan’s, I was all set to pour a few ( read: few =more than anyone ever drinks in the workplace) glasses of a drink that the whole company indulges in every couple hours. I also pictured myself reading an accounting book( Joan does this) and posing with the glasses on. This dress was my style as it has red poppies, green leaves, and fushia flowers in it. The material was lovely as it was so soft and comfortable on the body in a silky material. If I could have worn heels, I would have paired them with a little bow on a pointed slingback in red or black.
What are your favorite kind of dresses to wear? Are you a sheath girl, wrap dress, a-line style ? Can you see yourself wearing cat-eye glasses? The ones I am wearing here are the brit, as a part of the Make a Statement Collection. Check them out and others on Readers.com. Tomorrow will be the last installment of showing this collection, and how I see to pair them with certain outfits.
