Mad Men Countdown – 20 days

Remember Betty Draper’s blue swing coat?  It was one of the episodes where she went off to meet Mr. Francis with a black satin ribbon in her hair.  It was the most amazing and royal shade of blue, and looked equally as amazing against her porcelain complexion.

Janie Bryant even put a similar piece in her own collection for QVC, so you too, can own this little piece of luxury.

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: Almost time to get my “Mad” on…

Betty, Joan, Peggy

So it’s settled.  Our Girls’ Night Out group is going Mad on January 8th.  It’s the 2nd Annual Roland Dinner Party and the theme is “Mad Men.”  Everyone is so excited and who wouldn’t be at the thought of dressing up as Joan Holloway or Betty Draper Francis, two of the newest style icons?

My covet today is that I will be able to find a vintage dress or dinner suit and a pill box hat to top off my ensemble for this party.  Shouldn’t be too hard, right?  I mean there are only thousands of listings on eBay.  Unfortunately, because of Mad Men, these outfits don’t come cheap!  I will be checking my local antique stores too but if anyone has ideas or something that might be of interest, please let me know via a comment!
