Factory Asymmetrical shift dress


Asymmetrical shift dress (size 6): J.Crew Factory, here
Tahari Collette Pump in nude:  DSW, here
Handbag:  Kate Spade (2012)
Cuff and earrings:  Banana Republic, spring 2012
My husband and I have been in a Mad Men craze for a few weeks.  Season 6 started in early April, and in the weeks leading up to the season premiere, we decided to catch up on the previous seasons on Netflix.  So each night when the boys went to bed, we sat in a 1960's stupor watching Don chase the ladies, Betty sulk at home, and Joan charming the men and scaring all the women in the office.  When I came downstairs this morning my husband said "That dress looks like something Joan from Mad Men would wear."  I can see how this dress has a 1960's vibe with the neckline.  The neckline and the cuff also vaguely reminded me of Wonder Woman.  Whatever the character, I love this smooth 100% wool crepe Factory dress.  If you live near a Factory you may want to check it out...it is $89.97 + an additional 40% off in-store, which is much less than what you're pay online.  While I do wish it were longer, I really love the pretty navy color and shape.  The violet color is really pretty too.  I didn't think a necklace looked right with the neckline, so I just went with a cuff and earrings.

This is my third pair of the Tahari Collette pumps in different shades of nude.  I really, really love these shoes.  They are leather, the heel is not too high for work, and they are comfortable.  If you're looking for a pair of nude pumps for spring check these out...I think they are just perfect for a professional look.

Hope your week is going well.  Thanks for reading!

  5. Lovely outfit, it is very Joan! I love Mad Men too, Joan's early 60s looks and Megan's clothes are my favorites.

    1. Have you noticed that now that the show is set in the late '60's the outfits aren't nearly as fabulous? I am kind of bummed about that this season! And all the sideburns and beards on the men...ick!

  6. Very Joan! And get it rehemmed for length. I'm almost exactly the same build and height as you and I've had my factory dresses and skirts rehemmed by a tailor--typically she can get more than inch out of them, sometimes almost 2. It doesn't seem like much but makes me feel better about wearing them to work!
