Mad Men Countdown – 13 days

There’s nothing I like better than a sharp-dressed man.  And if he’s not in his favorite jeans and white t-shirt, then I prefer him in an impeccably tailored suit, crisp white shirt and the perfect tie.

Enter Don Draper.

Followed by Roger Sterling.


Mad Men Countdown – 17 days

Sorry, I was on hiatus from counting down.  Let me be clear though, I did not forget that the days are ticking by (amazingly slow) until the premiere airs on March 25th.

In fact, I just told my book club, while searching for a new day to meet, that I was unable to do Sunday nights because of Mad Men’s return.

With that said, here’s today’s favorite look inspired by the show’s real life ad campaign.  It’s the highly coveted, hotly-copied Joan Holloway dress… with curves in all the right places.

Mad Men Countdown – 24 days

Here we are 24 days from my favorite show’s return to the small screen.  I can’t wait to see what the writers, and more importantly Janie Bryant, have in store for us this season.

I can tell you one thing, the news that the premier would be two hours long almost had me in a frenzy!

But for today, we’ll have to reminisce about the amazing wardrobe featured in past seasons.  My second favorite outfit was from Betty’s stint at the stables. Check out her houndstooth hacking jacket and gorgeous knee high boots, both of which you could wear any given day this decade!

This coat is most likely a cashmere blend, and looks absolutely scrumptious to wear.

Mad Men Countdown – 25 days

It’s March 1st, and that means we only have 25 more days until the Mad Men Season 5 premier!

In honor of my absolute adoration for Mad Men, the cast and most of all, costume designer Janie Bryant, I am going to try to post as many of the gorgeous outfits as possible.

So for today, my #1 outfit of all time – my absolute fave – is Betty Draper’s black dress she wore in Rome.  Here’s a reminder…

Daily Covet: Mad for Sunday Nights

I just got the word, Mad Men’s latest season debuts with a 2 hour premier on March 25th.  I almost hyperventilated when I got the AMC email telling me 30 seconds ago.

Jon Hamm as Mad Men's "Don Draper"

First, I cannot wait to see my favorite characters, Don Draper and Roger Sterling, seduce like one hundred women in the first episode alone… even though Don is engaged to his secretary/nanny-for-the-day.

And I’m anticipating even more great fashion from the costumer, and quite possibly the most talented woman on the planet, Janie Bryant.

Don’t count on Sunday blogs and covets starting March 25th.  I’ll be curled up on my couch watching Mad Men on the small screen for the rest of the season.  But do look for some seriously 60’s-inspired covets from me in the near future.

Or maybe I’ll just revisit some of my past favorites… we’ll just have to see!
