Oh the clothes...

So a funny thing yesterday. It was my normal day off so I headed to the gym around 11 to get in a quick couple of miles on the elliptical. (Yes, I'm still suffering tendonitis so only low impact cardio for me!)

Anywho...AMC was running a marathon of a little show you may have heard of:

Mad Men

Oh my stars...it's heavenly.

I am already obsessed with mid-century furniture and now I'm craving a makeover and a new wardrobe.

The clothes, the set design, the makeup -

All pitch perfect.

How badly do I want a wasp-waist dress like Betty?

Even though I'm definitely more of Joan.

I mean, really, Joan is a hell of sex bomb but she's always perfectly presentable and covered up.

You know she's never left the house without a girdle.

Let's just say that we have a very similar figure and now I'm trying to figure out a way to become a redhead in the time before our big trip in two weeks.

If I'm going to Europe, I want to be the best looking American that I can be!

For fun here are some more Joan looks that I would wear in a heartbeat:
Joan disproving that redheads can't wear red.

Every girl needs a little black dress. And check out those curls! Mee yow!

Tight sweaters, pendant necklace, coordinating pencil skirt, and updo. Check.

I would run over your grandmother for this dress. Perfection.

Ditto this tweed skirt. Tricky length, though. Below the knee. Hmm.

Anywho, I was watching MM and suddenly realized I had been at the gym for THREE HOURS. My quads are killing me but I'm now hooked on a fabulous new show.

Worth it?
