Happiness is a new old frock

This outfit, worn by Betty Draper (aka January Jones) in the most recent episode of Mad Men had my eyes in paroxysms of delight. You can't see it in the picture, but the beautiful floral wiggle dress has a gorgeous cross-over back. The all matching white accessories - especially the gloves, oh the gorgeous gloves - had me lamenting that the days of people going out "dressed" from head to toe are well and truly over.
Thank goodness, though, that so many other aspects of women's lives have changed.
You can see more Mad Men piccies over at the AMC website.

Wow, that really is a gorgeous dress! I love the gloves so much too. I wish it was still in fashion to have to wear nice gloves doing everyday things.

Ooh that is a cute dress! I can't wait for the Mad Men box sets I'll be getting for Christmas, all the episodes will be new for me!

Hi Louise, thanks for the follow! That is a FABULOUS dress. Then again, Betty Draper would not be seen in anything less =)
