Inspired by: the women of Mad Men

The women of Mad Men: style
Betty, Joan & Peggy by Flapper Doodle

 Betty, Joan & Peggy

Betty Draper
Joan Holloway

I watch episodes of the 1960s television drama Mad Men just for the fashion and decor. Oh, the fashion! The smoking & the drinking! The 1960s home decor! Swoon!

So, this is my style watch on the women of Mad Men. Betty, in her perfect dresses & prim sweaters. Joan in her curve-hugging wiggle dresses & her red red hair. Peggy in her sweet dresses & no-nonsense business attire. I scoured Etsy.com for some vintage outfits that I could see our Mad Women wearing on the show.

Also, I want that black & white checker dress Peggy's wearing, the rust wiggle dress Joan is wearing & the teal one inspired by her. I suppose that means I don't have any Betty in me, huh? That's okay, I don't smoke anyways.
