Jumo-Joan Holloway

Darlings, I've just discovered the wonder that is Mad Men; I finished my season 1 DVD last night and I want to watch more, more, more!

I started watching because Tom & Lorenzo's recaps and Mad Style posts were just so incredible, I just knew this show had something to it. Now I'm hooked. Fair warning though: I always end each episode wishing for a fabulous manicure and a gold cigarette case, even if I don't smoke anymore.

Anyway, to celebrate my love for this show, here's an homage to Sterling Cooper office manager and "Their mouths are like a drop of strawberry jam in a glass of milk" Joan Holloway, played by the gorgeous Christina Hendricks.

Joan, to Peggy: "And listen, we're going to be working together so don't take this the wrong way, but a girl like you, with those darling little ankles, I'd find a way to make them sing. Also, men love scarves."
It's just a jeans-and-shirt-and-cardigan combination, which was so boring so I wanted to add a bit of interest with my Alison Mosshart scarf. I tied it into a pussy bow, which seemed faintly 1960s secretary, and there the Joan Holloway homage was born.

Wearing: SM department store scarf; Store with  no name cardigan, Uniqlo exercise shirt; Buffalo jeans; Parisian leopard flats.
