Mad Men Dress Challenge : At last! Its cool enough for me to wear it!!!

Yes thats right - the temperature has dropped to the point where I can comfortably wear the wool crepe dress to work and get some 'office-y' shots!

But first up here is a reminder of what I was trying to recreate:


Now mine is different, but similar enough (I think) that you can see what I was trying to achieve.  So without any further carry-on, here are photos of me wearing the dress!




This last photo is me trying to do something 'office-y'.  Not that I think Joan would file... she would more likely check someone elses filing and then make a nice but bitchy comment to them if they got it wrong.

And before I go, I just want to say that this dress is amazingly comforable and flattering on.  I will be making many more of these for the coming season!  I already have some dark teal green wool crepe, so I will be looking for a few more colours.  The dress is a winner!

So what do you think?  Do I make a good Joan?
