Going mad for Mad Men

Adelle - Woolen Skirt
As a lover and constant watcher of television shows, it's hard for me to not get sucked into whatever world is on my tv screen and in the case of Mad Men, I'm left wanting to change my entire wardrobe to that of the 1960s. After catching up on my bloglovin' I saw the latest outfit post on What Olivia Did, which screamed Betty Draper/Francis all because of a dress made by the amazing Mrs Pomeranz.

If you've yet to watch the award winning show, Mad Men is set in the 1960s, initially at the fictional Sterling Cooper advertising agency on Madison Avenue in New York City, and later at the newly created firm, Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce (later Sterling Cooper & Partners), located nearby in the Time-Life Building, at 1271 Avenue of the Americas. According to the show's pilot, the phrase "Mad men" was a slang term coined in the 1950s by advertisers working on Madison Avenue to refer to themselves, a claim that has since been refuted. The focal point of the series is Don Draper (Jon Hamm), creative director at Sterling Cooper and a founding partner at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, and the people in his life, both in and out of the office. The plot focuses on the business of the agencies as well as the personal lives of the characters, regularly depicting the changing moods and social mores of the United States in the 1960s.
"Mrs. Pomeranz is a women's clothing brand, based in London and Moscow. It specializes on a particular style of dresses and skirts, based on a classical 50's silhouette. The number of items produced is relatively small which allows us to maintain high standards of quality. The fabrics are Italian and English (from Liberty), with high-contrast prints, or Scottish tweed. We believe in making special dresses in which special things happen. When you put on Mrs.Pomeranz's dresses you feel feminine, fun and oh so 1950s. These are dresses which are all about being a woman- and loving it."

Whether you're a Betty, Joan or Peggy, there's something for you from Mrs Pomeranz. Yes the price tag isn't exactly cheap, but these are timeless pieces that you could have in your wardrobe for years and if this style has been around for about seventy years, who's to say it won't in another seventy years?

Fashion, affairs and a hell of a lot of smoking, Mad Men returns in April for its seventh and final season, and I can't freaking wait.
