(Pardon the picture of atrocious blurriness. It is literally the only one I could find that wasn’t teensy or just her face.)
Yes, this episode was a few weeks ago. Yes, I had fully intended to post about this adorable weirdness on Peggy (Elisabeth Moss) then, but I couldn’t find the right dress. Yes, I had intended to do an ode to Joanie’s floral bombshell dresses this week, but I wasn’t really finding the right dresses for that. And then I found this.
It’s not perfect. Peggy’s looked to be a fancier fabric, and it had that big bow. But it’s the right length, the right bright pink, the right sleeves… I’m going to run with it. Deep Blue Scene Dress in Pink, ModCloth.
And you know what? Not having a giant bow is an easy fix. Get some ribbon and make that bow belt yourself! I mean, it might not be quite as giant, but it’s the principle of the thing. This ribbon is from JoAnn’s. All craft stores carry ribbon, a lot of ribbon, and pink is one of the easier colors of ribbon to find.
Thanks for the easily spotted jewelry there in your Graduated Double Row Pink Pearl with Crystal Necklace, Debenhams.
I cannot see and don’t remember if Peggy dearest had earrings in. I’m sure they wouldn’t be as lovably ridiculous as these if she did. But they’re sort of cute, in a “playing dress-up” kind of way, and that was basically what Peggy was doing, so it suits. Beauty Anew Earrings, ModCloth.
Similarly, I cannot see and don’t remember Peggy’s shoes, but these feel fundamentally Peggy-dresses-up to me. Vintage Reserve Lydia Heel, ModCloth.
