If you're a MadMeniac like me, you're probably a tad bit irritated that we have to wait until early 2012 to pick up where the Draper and Sterling sagas left off. Inquiring MadMenian minds want to know:
- Is Megan and Don's engagement for reals?
- Will Joan admit to Greg that Roger Sterling is her baby daddy?
- Are Betty and Henry dunzo?
- Is Sally going to end up in juvie?
Yes, it sucks that we're on pause until the new Season five period plots unfold, but at least we can still dress the part, thanks to the Mad Men Capsule Collection at Banana Republic.
BR has gone retro, joining forces with Mad Men's highly decorated resident costume designer, Janie Bryant, to present a 65-piece collection for both sexes, featuring tailored suits, overcoats and dinner jackets for him, high-waisted skirts, dainty dresses and pleated cigarette pants for her. Don't forget the leather print satchels, felt fedoras, pocket squares and money clips, oh my.
My favorite piece? The prim and proper blue Begonia Print Dress that has Peggy Olsen's name written all over it, for $150.
p.s. Hey Peggy, these skirts and dresses will look mad sexy with a pair of seamed black pantyhose, so be a doll and hit up your new client, Topaz Hosiery for me.
