Now, I don’t watch television. As a full-time Bitch, full-time grad student, and full-time communications manager—albeit one that likes a great night on the town—I’m rarely home long enough to fit in a whole television show. And, most importantly, I have trouble sitting still.
However, Mad Men is something I will sit still for.
And as everyone’s favorite period show returns to us and transitions into the 1960s, there is no one better than sexy screen siren Megan, Don Draper’s much younger new wife, to shepherd us into the ’60s go go style.
The season premiere, and Megan’s ensembles—eye-catching bright, geometric and floral prints in strong-yet-feminine structured cuts—was a total fashiongasm.
Mad Men inspired lady-like style has permeated the apparel market for a while now and there are a slew of feminine frocks available this spring. The top purveyor of such trends is Shoshanna, by far and away one of my favorite designers. Shoshanna is queen of the day dress in bright, happy colors and prints—and the designer’s bikinis and resort wear aren’t too shabby, either.
The top destination for Shoshanna selection in Washington is Urban Chic, a boutique with locations in Georgetown and Bethesda. It’s by far and away our favorite shopping destination—and we’ll hike up Wisconsin to get there—for hand-selected pieces from our fave designers, Milly, Shoshanna, Tibi, Trina Turk, Hunter Boots, Rebecca Minkoff and more.
Urban Chic is hosting a Shoshanna trunk show at their Georgetown location Thursday and Friday of this week from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Here are my favorite pieces from Shoshanna’s Spring 2012 collection—inspired in part by ’60s style frocks—and all these items will be available at the trunk show. The Bitches will be there Friday. See you there, fashionistas.
