I have made no secret of the fact that I find Trudy (Alison Brie) adorable. She’s cute, and she’s too good for Pete, and she represents a side of the sixties style that is largely otherwise unused in the show. Peggy is all professional, Joan is all sexy-professional, Betty is all… Betty, Megan is a little mod. Trudy is the fluffy, girly type. She’s a “good girl” through and through, all cute things and pouffy dresses and florals, and she is darling and well-suited to suburban dinner parties.
So here goes.
It’s not quite the same. Trudy’s dress is a floatier fabric, a larger floral, one that’s green with yellow, not yellow with green and pink. It’s straps, not haltered. And there’s no little pink belt. But this feels close, emotionally? Made in the Shade Dress in Floral Flurry, ModCloth.
Trudy’s necklace and bracelet are a bit chunkier and a bit more abstract, but I couldn’t resist. These ones are designed to match. And they’re gold and they’re cute and they’re not exorbitantly priced and they feel appropriate. Pearl of my Dreams Necklace and Bracelet, ModCloth.
I think Trudy’s earrings are also more jewel-clusters than dangly ones, but these have little bitty bows. That seems very Trudy to me: classy yet adorable. Tea Party Planner Earrings, ModCloth.
And then, a whole collection of heels, getting progressively kickier as they go. All of these are out of stock or on limited availability, but it’s ModCloth, they may reappear. And they’re all adorable. The plainer ones are probably closer to accurate, but the funkier ones are more suited to making this modern, perhaps. Wishing and Taupe-ing Heel, Cafe au Lady Heel, Like It or Knot Heel in Rose, Gussied Up Heel, For Your Information Heel in Pink, all ModCloth. Of course.
