Mad Men: We Love This Dress and We Love This Song

Mad Men: We Love This Dress and We Love This Song

 

 

Admittedly, I jumped on the Mad Men hype late.

But I'm down with it now and I have to say,  Jessica Pare's character, Megan Draper gives me fashion chills.

Sunday's ensembles, were absolutely yummylicious.

I loved the  sleek, orange, short-sleeved shift she wore early in the episode and I was enamoured by this black mini complete with of-the-moment, sheer long sleeves. (We like to refer to them as illusion sleeves in the fashion world.)  I'd wear that dress today with sheer black pantyhose and be right on fashion point.

Speaking of Ms. Megan Draper, I'm not alone in my affinity for the little diddy Megan sang to her hubby, Don, for his 40th birthday. The tune, French 1960s pop hit “Zou Bisou Bisou” is still turning around in my head.

The Wall Street journal reported Tuesday morning that  Lionsgate released the song on iTunes shortly after Mad Men aired Sunday night.

A limited-edition, 7-inch vinyl version, including the “Mad Men” theme “A Beautiful Mine,” is available for sale through AMC’s website and soon will be available at Amazon.com before a wider retail release.

Civil Rights marches, fashion and music.

Who knew the 1960s would be so relevant in 2012?

 

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
