I was looking, earlier this week, at Banana Republic’s Mad Men collection. It’s quite nice stuff, though in my opinion a slightly loose adaptation, but when I saw this skirt
styled as it is with the socks sticking out of pumps, I was struck with inspiration. We’ve all learned that I adore Sally Draper (Kiernan Shipka)
and I enjoy seeing how much grown women can take fashion cues from little girls while still looking grown up, so here goes nothing.
Normally, I wouldn’t wear a top with chandeliers on it. But the cut is just so cute, and the chandeliers are the same color as the skirt, and. Well, when you’re doing little girl, you have to throw some whimsy in there.
Of course, you won’t see many chandeliers under this cute funky cardigan. (Could I throw together this outfit without a cardigan? I think not.)
Socks are also a definite must, as that was partially the inspiration for this here outfit.
And it just wouldn’t be me doing Mad Men (…or Dollhouse, for that matter) without tossing in rad black heels, would it? So there’s that.
And of course, I had to throw a barrette in, too.
…this outfit could also be titled Emma Pillsbury Goes Almost 1960s, probably.
