Joan Holloway and her style evolution

My favorite tv show of all time, Mad Men, came back yesterday for its final seven episodes. I can’t believe it’s coming to an end.
Since I am a total nerd of the show, I decided to make a blog post about one of my favorite characters, Joan Holloway. She’s a total babe, and one of the reasons why I dyed my hair red. Yes, am not joking!
From the very first scene, we can clearly see that her outfits embrace their curves. She’s always wearing fitted dresses, which mark their hourglass figure.

Doesn’t matter the occasion: she’s always flawless and sexy. Her character styles 1950s dresses with a 1960s twist, due to her figure. There is no doubt that 1950s and early 1960s fashion fits her best. 
And she never leaves her pendant, which styles nearly everyday with her blouses and dresses to emphasize her curves. 
The two final seasons of the show show us a character that, despite the fashion of the era, tries to fit in a decade that is constantly changing. She adapts her wardrobe a bit, but still wears fitted dresses. 
Hope you have a great start of the week, and If you’re fans of the show, enjoy the final episodes! x

Boardwalk Empire is over and I am sad

One of my favorite tv shows of all time, HBO’s Boardwalk Empire is over. As soon as I knew that Martin Scorsese would produce a gangster tv show set in the 1920s I knew I would love it. And I did! Through all 5 seasons I enjoyed the plot, the characters and, as you can imagine, the fashion featured in the series. 

But on this blog post I want to focus my attention to the garments shown on the last season of the show, which took place in the early 1930s. Don’t worry If you haven’t seen the finale yet, I won’t post any spoilers! 😉
I really love Margaret’s change in sense of fashion. She is pictured above wearing a magnificent burgundy dress with a striped details. Very glamorous and sophisticated, and matches her 1930s waves.
Patricia Arquette, who plays Sally in the series, also rocks the 1930s look by adding berets and hair accessories to her looks.

In men’s fashion, the style hasn’t changed as much as in women, but it is clear that now gangsters wear those iconic italian suits featured in dozens of films about mobsters, such as The Godfather. 
I hope you all have a great week, the last of 2014! xx
