MYHABIT recently asked me to be a contributor on their blog, MYHABIT theFix, with a mission to style a duo of Mad Men inspired outfits. Using a few of their vintage inspired garments and accessories and mixing them with my own wardrobe, I went overboard and did three (if I had time, I would have done several more). I couldn’t think of a more fun way to celebrate the return of one of my favorite shows, which seems to have ended ages ago. As someone whose style is heavily inspired by the 60s, I found an immediate favorite in Mad Men: first, because of the fashion and then because the story sucked me in. The hoopla surrounding its season premiere is anything but scarce (in-flight Mad Men runway show, anyone?) and I’m thrilled to be able to partake in it. Not only that: I also have a television now – with DVR! – so I can watch it on the actual date of the premiere. We live in the future, my friends. Or more likely, I finally live in the present.

As the show progresses, they get further away from Betty Draper’s New Look ensembles and closer to cigarette pants, cropped jackets and shift dresses. Still, I couldn’t help but break out my late fifties cocktail dress for a few pictures, too. It’s not every day that I can get away with it!
