sometimes i pretend im peggy olson

FIRST THING IS FIRST: I got the job at Old Navy!!! It was such a strange interview process (but in a good way). We ended up talking in a big group about what is special to us in life, played charades (I ended up doing Frozen and I just opened the freezer and acted like I was singing haha), and free-styled with a guitar. Anyways, I'm just really excited for this job and I love the management already! (Good start right?) 
OKAY:
Mad Men has started up again, and even though it's only been one episode I've fallen back in love with the show! Naturally, Peggy Olson is my favorite character and OF COURSE she keeps getting more and more fashionable (and independent- go girl!). In the new episode, Peggy sported the most flawless tweet-plaid suit I have ever laid eyes on. Due to the new episode I have gone back to my mod roots and have been wearing shift dresses any chance I get! 
Peggy is forever and always my queen. As I mentioned earlier, she is so stylish in the new season and it's only been one episode! I'm in love with this dress above and actually have a very similar for sale at The Mad Mod Shop!
I don't know why, but I am so excited for Betty this season! Before now I used to not have an interest in her character, but she just looks sooooo fabulous in this promo (and all the other ones). I'm also extremely excited to see all of Sally's new digs and from into the bad bitch all of us have been waiting for!
I am also super excited for Megan. I've always loved this French bombshell and now that her acting career is expanding I cannot wait to see what's in store for her. I'm also extremely proud of her (yes, I am proud of a fictional character), because she is no longer afraid of standing up to Don and she is just totally perfect okay.

Speaking of Mad Men, I really don't talk about modern fashion nearly enough on here (Mad Men counts as modern fashion because Banana Republic and all the other designers that are in charge of costumes for that show). One of my favorite brands/designers of ALL TIME is the marvelous, Kate Spade. I have yet to purchase anything, but I have come close many, many times. Of course, I always regret not buying the bags, dresses, whatever I'm looking at, but I'm just being cost-efficient. Luckily there's a Kate Spade outlet store in San Marcos (where I'll be going to college) so I'll have a better chance of actually getting something from my long-admired-dream-store. So, some of you guys are reading this and are thinking "So what's the big deal with Kate Spade?" WELL I WILL TELL YOU: She's obsessed with a-line skirts, high waisted everything, polka dots, pop art, and mod fashion. Kate Spade basically crawled in my brain and took my favorite things in the world and turned it into a brand. Just looking at all of her products and wonderful(ness) makes my heart ache (and yearn for millions of dollars), because everything is so flawless and beautiful. 
This year, 2014, is what got me back into Kate Spade. The vibrant colors plus 1950's influence spoke to my soul as I noticed her new products in a fashion magazine. 
Fall 2013 was filled with bright colors, polka dots, graphics, and pointed-toe shoes! This collection was basically made for me (like everything else from this brand).
As you guys know, I'm a total fanatic for high waisted trousers and I am in love with these orange ones from her fragrance ad. I love trousers to begin with and with that high rise, it makes it all that much sleeker.

There's not many purses I go totally nuts for, but I would seriously die for this typewriter bag. I actually have a difficult time explaining just how much I love this bag! Wouldn't it be totally dreamy to have this and find a matching vintage typewriter? (The answer is yes, it's always yes.)
One of the other few things I would seriously die for is this wicker car purse. I can't even fathom how someone came up with this. It's seriously one of the cutest things I've ever seen (including that typewriter bag) and I can't get enough of it. I noticed that there were other wicker purses online as well, and are, of course, freaking adorable, too.

  4. Ah! Congratulations on the job, that's so exciting! Your hair looks fabulous, and also MAD MEN IS THE BEST EVER. The clothing in that show makes me (sometimes) forget about what's happening cause I'm seriously just mesmerized by how a certain dress moves or something. Also, the hair, especially on the guys. *swoooooooon*

  10. I was also very excited for the new Mad Men season! As soon as I finished watching it I couldn't help but jump on etsy and search for some 60's clothes and what not (although I didn't end up buying anything. I'll forever be envious of all the great outfits in each episode.) Also, congratulations on your new job! I hope you enjoy it there.
