Period Inspiration

One of my favorite shows is Mad Men- it's almost single-handedly responsible for the uptick in pencil skirts in my closet. The character I relate to the most is Joan because of her story and her curves. I find that I have a fair number of looks that are modeled on her wardrobe. This look is a revival of some plain pieces I have which are now 'Joan-ed' into something a bit unexpected. The belted vest is something I would not have braved up till last year but I'm actually comfortable enough to draw attention to my waist covered by 3 layers of fabric. The rolled up sleeves are a subtle nod to Peggy's style ("I'm on my typewriter and I've got a deadline, I tell ya!")
