First costume of the week: Joan Holloway (Christina Hendricks) on Mad Men.
I'm a total Mad Men junkie and am obsessed with Joan and her role at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce (I'm totally obsessed with Megan Draper (Jessica Paré) too, but we'll see more of MD later on in the week!). I brought a few photos to the salon when I got my hair 'did and Christina Hendricks was on my hair vision board. Did I say "hair vision board"? Why yes, I most definitely did!
To recreate this Joan Holloway look, I've included a few key ingredients below to really make this costume pop!
I also snagged inspiration from this genius batch of Joan paper dolls as well...
I used a dress that a reader sent my way to make my Joan look come to life!
I parted my hair to the side and pinned it up, put on my green dress, added some red to the lips and I was ready to go!
I'm loving this 60s look! It was perfect for a night at the theater!!
A little bit of old Hollywood mixed with new...
...while throwing in a few sneak attack pictures of the ceiling that I absolutely adore. The usher saw my photo sneaking and promptly asked me to put away my phone - I did, but not until after I got this gorge shot!
I love the red hair/green dress look that Joan's got working for her...
...that I knew this combo would be just right for me!
Costume #1, down! I love that this piece works outside of Halloween too...you just might see me rolling around town in this again next month!
