A Mad Men fashion inspired post

A group of Ugandan bloggers came up with an ingenious idea to use a TV character as a muse, to emulate in the fashion realm. Joan Holloway played by Christina Hendricks of MadMen came to mind almost immediately. Not Peggy but Joan. Why? Joan’s simply a boss in my opinion. A lovely mix of ambition and sass! We see her evolve through the season and struggle with the decision of being a bored/ lonely, rich housewife (which was coveted in America in the 60’s) or struggle through the work world during a time when women weren’t welcome there.

This chic, bodacious, brilliant,patient, confident actress carries herself with such great fashion sense its crazy! Now if you haven’t watched this series. You definitely should. I always have fancied myself a woman’s woman. The thing about her is she is a little rough around the edges although she presents herself in such a way that you could never doubt that she was a woman.

Joan Holloway lets us know, its OK to be a woman and act like a woman in a work place, wear our lipstick, do our touch-ups in the bathroom during tea breaks and even learn how to deal with men who have no concept of handling a woman in the office politically correct all the time while doing it in a great pair of heels.

Enough said, I want to be Joan when I grow up! For now, I will just try and emulate. Do you have a favorite TV series actress character you love?

Please share.
