I can't lie. I hightailed it to Banana Republic the exact day their much-anticipated Mad Men collection debuted. And I wasn't disappointed - the pieces were a fresh take on the iconic styles of Joan, Betty and even Peggy. I ended up falling in vestiphilial-love with the begonia print dress, the lace dress and the leopard print trench. All three pieces were beautifully made, fit perfectly, and felt deliciously luxurious on. Plus, they were tailored for a lady with curves. Yay for curvature! Nothing wrong with having some junk in the trunk, I like to say. (:
Take a look at who else was jonesing for these chic 1960s inspired threads...
Yup, it's my good friend, Ayesha (last seen here). She ended up at the same BR store that day. What are the chances?
Me and my gal pal entertained the staff at the Southgate Centre BR that evening with our twin-dressing antics. I think we made their night. Especially the snazzily-attired Sylvester, who gave us styling tips as to what we should wear with the leopard print trench. His take? Red heels, dark skinny jeans and a slinky top. Eat your heart out, Don Draper!
Now, can you guess what both Ayesha and I took home? (;
And what about you? Did anything in the collection catch your eye?
