Let’s face it – who doesn’t want to look like they just stepped off the set of Mad Men? Short of perfectly coiffed hair, Banana Republic has made it a lot easier for you to channel your inner Betty, Joan or Peggy.
Designed in collaboration with Mad Men’s Emmy-winning Costume Designer Janie Bryant, the inspired collection offers nearly 65 pieces for both men and women. The women’s line features dresses, cardigans, scarves and heels; the men’s collection features suits, sweaters, pocket squares, neck ties and fedora hats.
I stopped by my local BR to check out the collection myself. Many pieces were already sold out, but there were some pieces that I really loved. The lace-tipped dress, the leopard print trench, the silk spot print neck scarf, the leopard print clutch and the pearl brooch necklace. I wanted to like the begonia print dress, the lace shell and the lace dress, but the pieces fell short compared to the other pieces in the collection.
I would have happily purchased the houndstooth dress (I loooooove houndstooth), the bracelet sleeve jacket and pencil skirt (there’s nothing sexier than a pencil skirt in my book) and wanted to see if the Betty dress was as flattering as it was pictured in the advertising, but, sadly, they weren’t around for me to look at.
This limited-edition line won’t be available for long, so get shopping!
Until next week (and my next obsession)!
