It’s Wednesday, which means: it’s time to pop open a bottle of scotch, light a cigarette and feast your eyes on some Mad Men fashion. Okay, smoking’s bad for you and so is day drinking, but other than that, Mad Men fashion for the win!
This week’s episode was titled Field Trip, fondly named after Betty’s field trip to drink fresh milk straight from a cow into a bucket. Who knew she had it in her?! It was really great to have Betty back. If anything the woman is consistent at pulling together an outfit. I was a bit sad though to have no Pete Campbell this week. I like to live vicariously through Pete and his epic sideburns.
Obviously Betty and Joan are the slam dunk dresses of the show female wise. But I think we have to tip the odds in favor of Joan who seriously always hits it out of the park. She’s like the modern day, or at least 60s-day, equivalent to Wonder Woman. It’s inspiring to think we could all look that great all the time!
I’m afraid though…that Disheveled Don is going to be pulling it together in the future. This is a let down to be honest. Like I said, Disheveled Don really speaks to me. I think we have a mutual understanding of each other that neither discovered till his bit of a downward spiral began. Once you see someone lounging around in a bathrobe all day eating Ritz crackers, you start to really feel connected to that person…
Hopefully next week Pete Campbell will be back to fill that void, and we can all divert our eyes from Disheveled Don to some cracktastic plaid pants (or jackets. Or his sideburns. You know, whatever.) Pete’s the gift that keeps on giving!
