BR

I have a confession to make: I’m obsessed with Megan Draper.

I know there’s this incredibly prevalent feeling that the only women you’re allowed to love on Mad Men are Joan (obviously) and Peggy, and all of Don’s love interests play a distant second fiddle, but during the last season of Mad Men, I LOVED Megan. I loved seeing a little sixties fashion mixed in with its sublime retro costumes, and I loved that she’s kind of modern and sexy and totally different from any woman on the show before her.

So when I got to pick a piece from Banana Republic’s Mad Men collection, I obviously went right for Megan’s sixties graphic print dress (see it on her in a promo shot here). It’s amazing how this pattern is so obviously sixties-inspired but it still totally works today — the sign of a good decade for fashion!

And Banana Republic has generously offered something for you guys to win too! I’m giving away this necklace (photo below) to a lucky winner! Just leave a comment below (U.S. shipping only) to enter to win!

Gifted Banana Republic Mad Men collection dress, gifted Shoemint pumps.

    I love the dress, love the necklace, and I’d love to win!

    Ps. I’m a Megan fan too. I know they make fun of her a lot on the EW recaps (do you ever read those? They’re amazing/ funny/ insightful and I feel like you’d love them… http://tvrecaps.ew.com/tv-show/mad-men/ ) but I think she’s awesome and I love that she actually stands up for herself, as women should.

    Love the entire ensemble! I would love to win the necklace!

  • 42 Ashli M. // Mar 21, 2013 at 11:18 pm

    The pop of color that those shoes bring to the outfit is amazing. I love color and this shows that it doesn’t have to scream to make a statement.

    Wow, I loev the necklace and colorful dress. The picture are very clear and sharp. I wonder where I can buy that same dress.

  • 53 Swaringen // Mar 25, 2013 at 6:53 am

    Love the whole outfit! The dress is so bold and edgy! Love the bright color of the shoes, it added more life to the outfit itself.  I want to win for the free necklace, that would be perfect for a black simple/casual dress which I would be wearing to a party or a family gathering. :)
