We love the show. I get angry too, but Don is so likable in a weird. womanizing way.
Those dresses are amazing!



I AM completely addicted and John and I laugh that the men in advertising never looked that good (except him, of course). We had a Martini party last Oct. and all dressed like that - all the guys wore white dinner jackets and black pants and we all wore Betty Draper dresses and had big hair - so FUN!!(of course, the martinis helped).


I am pretty sure I shoulda been born in this era!!! LOL I love the classiness of it! simple and yet stylish..love it!


I must be living in a box, 'cause I haven't heard of this show, and now it has come up for the 2nd time in 2 days! I will have to check it out - if for no other reason than to drool over the clothes (thanks for the pics you shared - they're fabulous, darling!!)

I absolutely LOVE that show. I love the fashion, I love that the characters are both loveable and hateable at the same time. I do not, however, love the smoking. I did grow up with parents who smoked - all the time! YUCK!

Don't rent the seasons. You can watch 1-3 online at www.free-tvshows.com

Lovvvvvvvvvvvvvvvve it! We get all excited as soon as the theme song starts playing. I am hooked on Joanie. She plays her role so fantastically well. The show is so s-l-o-w, one of the things I love about it. It's such a time capsule of that era! We have watched each season via netflix and the dvds have super fun bonus features that focus on the fashion of the day.

One more thing - have you ever watched Big Love? Just curious...in a totally hypothetical way, of course. ;)


I LOVE Big Love!!!! I cant wait for it to come back on!!!

I have heard of that show but never have watched it. I think I saw them all being interviewed on one of Oprahs shows. I would love to watch it just for the fashion. I wish I had all of my moms vintage frocks...I would be in heaven. Sending you many blessings for 2010.


I really Must check this Darn Show out. Love all the Inspiration. Happy New Year, Jamie, Oh, I Adore Big Love too, can't wait for that one!

Hi Jeanneoli, I havent watched that show but I can imagine the smoke is blowing, I think half of the movie world smoked in the 40's shame they didn't realise then how bad it is!!.
Love the dresses so elegant! Will be off now to view your new blog (how do you do it?) you clever girl :)


I love love Mad Men too! I love the fashion and Don, what a cool cat!

I have never even heard of it. Is it HBO or something?? I loved all the dresses you showed though... I could definitely get in to that. What a fun party that will be, hopefully minus the smoking:)

OMG! I of course have heard of this show but I had no idea what it was about, never seen it. I had no idea it was from this era. I'm now off to add the first season to my netflix account! See...it was meant to be that you stopped by my blog which lead me to yours to read about this. haha. I'm sure I'll be thanking you later. Let me know if you end up making the Pineapple Vodka. xoxo


LOVE Mad Men AND Big Love!! -And I DO remember people smoking that much! We do have people with emphysemia and lung cancers from all of that!
Yep, love the clothes and Don Draper etc, etc and will miss it till next fall!!!!


never seen it, but by the look of those heels and those dresses, the show has got to be fun to watch for fashion alone!!


i have never watched that show...one of my friends is addicted though...


We just started watching season 1 this weekend! We stayed up way too late last night watching! At first I didn't really like it I thought it was too over the top with the drinking/smoking/womanizing... but I llllloooooooovvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeeee it!
I can't wait to see the rest!
Love the dresses and shoes you posted!


Can you believe I haven't seen one episode! Crazy and now I have to go rent it!


I'm so out of the loop...you have a photography blog now??! Very cool, I will check it out!!

I've never even heard of the show Mad Men...I'm always so behind on everything and trying to squeeze in a few more things at the end of the day, that watching tv has truly fallen by the wayside...I would love to try and catch an episode though!

Happy Monday Jeanne ~

Oh my, yes! Only we still have the last 2 episodes of the season that just ended on our DVR- unwatched!!! My husband just hasn't been in the mood and I haven't wanted to watch them without him. It seems to get more and more depressing with each new season. I still love it, though.


i've never seen the show but i sure love your picks especially that second dress!


I love those dresses!!! I have never even heard of that show but you are making me want to watch it!!! I would love an excuse to smoke candy cigarettes again :)


Love this!!!! I haven't watched this show yet but the clothes and style are really making me want to;)
