STYLE - Eat Your Heart Out Joan Holloway

I've always been a fan of a figure-sculpting shift dress. Mad Men fans will know that Joan Holloway has been somewhat of a revolution in reviving this style of dress too. Yes people always mention Christina Hendricks' curves, but I think you have to. She wears a fitted shift in a way that many women can only dream to. Having a larger bust only enhances that hourglass shape and shows off the retro style. 

All the dresses below are by Suzannah, a brand already worn by celebrities including Denise Van Outen, Kelly Osborne, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Sarah Harding who wore the corsage maxi dress to her recent birthday celebrations. My favourite of the vintage-inspired styles below is definitely number 2. Which is your fave?

Are you still Mad for Mad Men styles or has this decade had it's day? I noticed there's lots of new content to have a look at over on the official Mad Men website. Remember how that 'Mad Men yourself' tool went round the social networks. I'm still stuck on the end of the first series of Mad Men with 2 more box sets from Xmas to go yet. Is it just me or is it a little bit too slow to pull you in when compared with shows like Boardwalk Empire, Californication and The Wire?
