I am terrible!

I swore I was going to write more! I haven't. I don't want to make excuses but, the dog ate my homework, the printer broke, my sister must have picked it up, etc. Basically I just didn't have time, Christmas was quite manic what with presents and my sister coming home, work and revision, I will make up for it this year, that is my new year's resolution. Speaking of which. HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope everyone has had a lovely Christmas and enjoyed the holidays whatever they celebrated!

Well, I am basically SO behind the times but recently I have gotten into Mad Men! I started watching from season 3 but I just love the clothes, in particular the bags! It is all amazing! So ladylike. I love Joan the best, she is the epitome of what a woman should be, seductive, curvy but headstrong and sensible, she seems independent and knows what's what. I like it! I am however, pretty sad that she isn't with Roger, well, not at least for now - don't spoil the end for me! Betty annoys me, her sense of style is great, don't get me wrong, I love her neutral palette, she is stylish. However, she seems too preoccupied with how she looks rather than looking after her children! She's in denial, she jumped from Don far too quickly and I don't know, I haven't seen enough of her to get to like her. I think Peggy is wonderful! She seems like what we would now call geek chic. I love her determination and her ambition, but she remains a feminine woman, fighting her way in a man's world. (I know it's only a show but to me, it's real!!!! Haha!)

So, this post is my new year dedication to the fabulous clothes from Mad Men, and the lady like clothing I have seen lately and am desperate for!

First up, the glamourous Joan:



Typewriter necklace from loveheartsandcrosses they have loads of really cute jewellery! But I think this really embraces the secretary of the 50s theme!

New range from Vivienne Westwood for Melissa, available from ASOS.


To introduce Betty:


A very "Betty" style dress from New Look


There are also many great items from Beyond Retro, too many to decide which is blog worthy, it all is!

And finally, super cute Peggy:
