Mad Men and Pretty Dresses

This weekend, I started watching Mad Men. If you haven't heard of this series, it's about the advertising world on Madison Avenue in the 1960s. Everyone smokes everywhere, everyone drinks all the time--especially in their office, where they all have their own minibars, and all the girls wear the prettiest dresses, ever. My favourite character is January Jones, who plays a desperate housewife. Her dresses are the best, but even better, she matches her headbands and gloves to them, even if she's just washing the dishes. Which is what she mostly does when she's not lying on the fab leather chaise longue at the psychiatrist's office. So, so good.
