Banana Republic's " Mad Men" Party


Exactly 2 years ago I fell in love with the famous show " Mad Men" not just for its juicy plot but also for its amazing use of 60's fashion. So you can imagine when I had the opportunity on Thursday to view Banana's Republic Mad Men's inspired collection, I was ecstatic.  
 The hybrid child between the affordable luxury emporium and the show's costume designer Janie Bryant, the collection oozes femininity in classic cuts with a touch of retro. With an abundance of leopard and lace one can channel either side of the Mad Men female character. You can go for the leopard trench and get in touch with your inner Joan or try a more demure ivory lace dress and make Betty Draper proud. I opted to go for in between with this black lace shell which will soon debut in an outfit!
 The collection is here for a limited time only so hurry up and get your dose of Mad Men!

Vancouver's stylish: Jen, Alicia, Melissa, Lisa
With Banana's own Don and Betty Draper
  As to what I actually wore.... 
Well, after trying several outfits, from Stepford housewife a la Betty Draper to a more demure Peggie outfit, I settled for a modern hybrid of my own.
Wearing: Forever 21 top, H&M Skirt, Pixie Shoes, Bag from Japan, Aldo Earrings

Great outfit, I love the top!

I am in love with the show as well, the fashion is great. Have you ever checked out the book dedicated to the 'Mad Men style' by Jamie Bryant? It's called The Fashion File and it's full of inspiration. Definitely a great book to browse through and read more about the different styles on the show :-)

Mina, your outfit was PERFECT! You're such a doll. Thanks for sharing this event. I'm a fan of the show and 60's fashion. Banana Republic's line is truly FAB!

This looks like a such fun event, I'm sorry I missed it! It looks like you did both Betty and Joan proud in your retro-inspired ensemble. I love all of the bright colours you paired, but particularly your coral skirt and handbag, which are absolute perfection together. I can't wait to see the debut of your very own little piece of Mad Men :)

I love "Mad Men" and was super excited for this collection! You look darling of course. Although I feel like this collection is ill timed because Mad Men would usually be back on TV right now but it's been delayed until 2012.

linlicious said...

you remind me of Blair Waldorf in Gossip Girl with that outfit.
So cool!
