Did you all catch the Australian Premiere of Mad Men last night on SBS?
For those of you who don’t own a TV, or have been living under a rock for the last year or so, Mad Men is the TV series credited with bringing the bombshell fashions of the 50’s and 60’s back into vogue.
Yep, you can thank costume designer Janie Bryant for the welcome return of floral dresses, high waists, full skirts and curvy silhouettes. Huzzah!
Obviously I was terribly excited to finally see it premiere, so in honor of Joan Holloway – the most scrumptiously lush secretary on TV – today I decided to wear my most “steno pool” suitable sheath dress. Just show me to the typewriter! (Incidentally, favourite line of the episode: Joan [whipping the cover off a massive old typewriter] “Don’t be overwhelmed by all this technology. It looks complicated, but the men who designed it made it simple enough for a woman to use”. Comedy gold, man.)
