Before you ask, the answer's 'no'. No, I haven't started sewing my own dress for the Mad Men Dress Challenge, but the plan is to spend today (I'm not at work – whoop!) and tomorrow doing so. Phew, glad that's off my chest!
Moving onto business now, I'm happy to present to you the delicious stylings of the stunning Trudy Campbell - hands up who agrees that she can do way better than the cringe-worthy Pete? Trudy's one of my absolute favourite Mad Men style icons. So much so that when Julia Bobbin announced her challenge, I was convinced that Trudy would be the character I chose to emulate. Sadly, my pattern stash did not deliver the goods, but maybe it's something to revisit in the future.
Anyway, without further ado let's have a look at my favourite Trudy Campbell outfits – photos courtesy of Tom + Lorenzo.
This beautiful lady sure does know how to rock a shirtdress - she certainly gives queen of the shirtdress, Betty, a run for her money!
She also has great taste in twin-suits. I find the combination of polka dots and a peter pan collar particularly appealing.
I want this headscarf! wish I looked this cool when I was kicking back - my casual look mainly consists of baggy pyjama bottoms (which my boyfriend detests funnily enough)!
Even heavily pregnant, Trudy still looks stylish and cute as a button!
Like with any of the Mad Men ladies, it's her evening looks that really excite me. It just doesn't get better than this, does it?!?
Wow, isn't she beautiful? The top and last pictures are particularly breathtaking. And if you thought this post was yummy, tune in next week for features on Peggy, Joan and Betty. The big three will round off this style series just nicely methinks!
