The Thing I Love this Thursday is the world of MATERNITY.
|I love me some maternity leggings! They are from Old Navy and they have the full front panel that goes right over Hall & Oates so beautifully. I AM IN LOVE WITH THESE LEGGINGS.|
Long gone are the days of Betty Draper sitting in her kitchen with Francine drinking and smoking and watching little Sally Draper with a dry cleaning bag over her head with the only worry being something along the lines of "if those dry cleaned clothes are messed up you are in big trouble, Missy!"
|This is about my favorite scene ever from anything ever. (ALL these Mad Men photos are courtesy of the mad geniuses at TLO - Tom and Lorenzo - My FAVORITE RECAP SITE if for some reason you don't read them yet, YOU ARE MISSING OUT!)|
|My two favorites. Roger and Joanie. And the ciggy. Mmmmmmmm.|
And Miss Trudy Campbell here in here cotton candy frou frou come and get me but stay the hell away from me get up? FABULOUS.
Y'all know I love me some old school glamour. I just do. And most days I'm still wearing my own clothes - meaning non-"maternity" clothes. WE ARE SO LUCKY TO HAVE STRETCHY CLOTHES. These gals didn't have that back then. I still wear the cat-eye glasses and the red lipstick and you can pry those from my cold dead hands thankyouverymuch, but shit like this nonsense above, no way. In my defense, as in the "I didn't just jump on the Mad Men train", I had these cat eye glasses and red red lips long before Mad Men came on the air. And will long after it goes off the air.
We are in a great place today in history for women's fashion - and particularly in maternity clothes - in that we can be all retro if we want and yet have the modern comforts of stretchy pants too. PURRRRRRRFECT.
I'm still pinning to my What are you wearing today? board over on the Pinterest. You will see the transformation from no belly to belly with two babes. It's fun! But not NEARLY as much fun as being able to smoke and drink while pregnant. Sonsabitches.
