Mad Men season 5 coming – are you fashionably ready or fashionably late?

23 Mar

How excited are you about Mad Men new season just few days away? I hope you have your outfit out and ready to be “walked”! “Bourbon Steak” at Four Seasons Hotel is hosting a viewing party. $75.00 includes cocktail party at 7, three-course dinner at 8, The_Movie at 9, and prizes! Tax and gratitude included. I’m trying to imagine the sea of colorful skirty dresses, beautifully styled hair and small purses. How good can you do, DC?

For reservations or more information, please call 202-944-2026 or email bourbonsteak.was@fourseasons.com

2 hour show premiere airs on Sunday, March 25, at 9/8c on amc.

I personally a little bit upset about Betty Draper migrating from Grace Kelly’s style to Jacky Kennedy’s, but well, I guess it’s only logical. Being now a mom of three and a politician’s wife, the crowd she is now swimming in has changed, too. So, as much as we loved her iconic feminine looks, we now have to wave them good-byes and greet a new, matured and polished Betty. Bye-bye, Birdie.

Luckily, you can now find  dresses with slight differences in skirts but same fabric/pattern/vibe, so the switch Grace/Jackie and vice versa is not so drastic. Here is a little teaser of amazing dresses, shift and prom, from Fever Designs in the United Kingdom who don’t deliver over the ocean! But, at least we can get an idea…

Emilia Shift Pink Dress and Emilia Prom Pink Dress

Same pair in cream, SHIFT and PROM

So, I hope you enjoy this new season of Mad Men, regardless the size of your wallet. Of course, there are tons of dresses, purses, shoes, glasses and jewelry out there, considering the hotness of this fashion era now, so I guess it just makes the hunt easier.
