The Peggy Olson

Cardigan, J.Crew. Skirt, Banana Republic. Headband, Claire's. Belt, Eddie Bauer. Pumps, Nine West.


You guys are probably sick of seeing me in this pink belt but I'm not! Seriously, it goes with everything, such as this outfit that I fancy Peggy Olson would wear (when taking a break from checkered dresses, that is). Before you jump up and say you love Mad Men, I have to tell you I am the biggest fan. Bigger than you. Yeah, I discovered it first. I was watching TV one fateful day in 2007 when it occurred to me that I had stumbled upon the most perfectly restored classic movie. Really, it took me while to figure out what was going on! (and hit the info button on the remote). So what do you think? Would Peggy be seen in this?

P.S.: I'm doing Joan next.

The pink belt goes perfect with the green top :)
I love your headband and the look too!

Jo said...

I love this look! The background you chose for your outfits today is totally Mad Men. Super cute! Can't wait to see the Joan outfit.

Oh, I am definitely not sick of seeing that pink belt! I'm in search of one just like that, actually. You made me want to buy one! :P

Okay first of all, did I miss your birthday? Was it yesterday? I need to know. I've got imaginary presents galore stacked up in my brain that I need to unload before class today.

SECONDLY, I think your color combo might be a little too preprageous for Peggy but otherwise she'd totally dig it. Can't wait for the Joan look!

Sigh, you have the perect Peggy Olson look here! So cute! I love Mad Men, but apparently not as much as you!

Happy Birthday!
Forgive the delay, but as there as no post on the actual joyous occasion, what's a girl to do?...

Lovely outfit! Is this what you pranced around in during the birthday festivities?

naomi said...

this is such a fun idea, Mad Men makes for great inspiration. I can't wait to see Joan!

So cute! I love that you're in a very Mad Men-esque elevator for your pictures too.

kimmie said...

Oh, that's totally Peggy Olsen. You're just missing the horrible bangs.

Can't wait to see what you put together for your Joan look! :) And you must do a Betty, too!

Well, I'm a late bloomer in the world of Mad Men. I am at the end of Season 1 thanks to my netflix. Peggy is fat and I'm pretty sure Don is going to leave Betty. I know, I know. I'm way behind. But don't tell me what happens. It's hard enough dodging the spoilers in my EW every week. :-/

Oh yeah, and I love your outfit.

SO pretty! you look so much better than Peggy.

I love the shape of your skirt, and that pink belt is so gorgeous, who can blame you for wearing it often? It looks great paired with green and cream, and I love the pink headscarf. Mostly though, I would twirl in that skirt for hours. So full and flowy!

amber said...

that skirt is fabulous!! i can't resist a skirt that twirls so well! :)
