Madness (See Jane Wear)

                                               c/o Banana Republic Mad Men trench, gap pants, F21 necklace, Elizabeth and James sunglasses

I am an avid Mad Men viewer (highly recommended…get the DVDs and start from the beginning), so when Banana Republic contacted me to wear a piece from their Mad Men Fall ’11 Collection, I jumped at the chance.  I feel a little Joan in this and if I had an up-do, then I’d definitely be channeling Betty (sorry Peggy).  Clearly, I love the story lines of Mad Men, but the costumes draw me in as well; I’ve even found myself taking some dressing cues from the ladies.  Since I work in a corporate environment, I love a good pencil skirt, à la Joan Holloway.  This trench speaks (volumes) for itself, so I felt simple was the way to go.  Black cigarette pants and plain, nude pumps–I think Betty would be proud, no?

So tell me, do you watch Mad Men?

  1. I love this! I've heard people talk about the cheetah trench but now that I've seen it – I want it! I love how you paired it with simple basics.

  2. I've heard that the show's amazing but this BR collection is definitely the perfect excuse to start watching the show!

  3. i just started watching madmen because it came up on netflix live stream and i heard all about the fashion, and it took me two or three episodes to get into it but i'm so into it now… so dark, so satirical, so beautiful

  4. I am obsessed with Mad Men after Chloe kept talking about it so one day I rented the seasons I had missed on Netflix and OMG, I fell in love. And now that they are showing past seasons at 6:00 AM on Sundays, I am getting up to watch.
    Love the trench!

  5. I've seen a couple of other bloggers sporting this trench and the more I see it the more I think I absolutely must have it! Such a classic outfit with a bit of a modern twist!!

  6. That trench is unbelievable! I want it! I used to watch Mad Men and then some how fell off – but want to get back into it. Really is such a great show.

  7. It's a gorgeous trench coat! I love BR's mad men-inspired collection. I don't watch the show but I love the actress who plays Peggy – Elisabeth Moss – I got to meet her briefly and she was so sweet!

    I have a giveaway going on I think you'd be interested in!
