Go on, 'Mad Men' Yourself

Madmen_standard-3

This is fun. The Mad Men website has an app where you can 'Mad Men' yourself, choosing everything from body type and face shape to accessories and scenery - in early 1960s style, of course. There really is only one kind of nose, however, that would suit a woman and it's very Betty and Veronica. One of the options is a huge, bulbous honker that would be perfect for a 'Karl Malden' yourself.

For the first Mad Men 'Me', I went for for a day look that becomes evening with the right accessories (pretty much the way I dress in real life) with long black gloves, clutch and neckpiece. In this scenario, I have come home from a night of general submissiveness which included lots of giggling around men, batting of the lashes and walking while being acutely conscious of my butt. Naturally this won me a few cocktails. I always need something to ease my stomach after drinks so on my way home I grabbed a cruller from Tim Horton's, which you can see I'm holding in my left  hand. And I happen to live in a hotel. It may be the 1960s but I simply refuse to do laundry.

For the second one, I got a little out of control and crashed a church picnic.

Speaking of Mad Men, I am dying to hear how Kristin fares with her amazing entry for the Mad Men Casting Call Contest - it's in the final judging phase. Have you seen her photo? This is the way to Mad Men yourself, for real.

Hi Denise,
thank you so very much for your lovely comment on my blog! I'm happy to meet you and to have found your stylish blog as well! Thanks to Deanne of Dreamsequins!
Hehe, that is one very funny application! I have to take a look at it myself :-D Thanks for sharing.
And - could you possibly explain me what this bubblegum tea is everybody is talking about?? It didn't hit old country Europe yet (in fact, it didn't arrive in Germany...).
Will add you to my blogroll!
xoxo Sofie

thanks for entering the contest! i love how you added a donut to your mad men pic.

You're so swell. Thanks for the award. And I gave you an award as well, because fashion awards are like blogger-STDs without the unpleasantness. It gets around. Was that gross? OK. I'll stop.

And... I can't wait to see you rock the tulle on that coat. Can you PLEASE PLEASE post an outfit post? You're so haute. Do ittttt
