People, it's exactly one week until Julia Bobbin takes all the Mad Men challenge dresses and shares them in one maddeningly exciting post! I'm relieved to say that I've finally finished mine, so before I introduce today's Mad Men style icon, here's a sneaky peek for you:
Anyway, today we're looking at Peggy Olson - an interesting character who seems more into her career than her appearance. In fact when she first arrived on the scene, she was like a fashion-backwards country bumpkin, but her sense of style definitely improved with time. As does her hair thankfully!!! Although Peggy never reaches office vixen status (aka Joan), her style has it's own unique charm and generally seems very wearable - explaining perhaps why she has quite the following among stitching bloggers...myself included!

These sweet dresses have a late 1950s vibe to them (very similar Betty's get-ups) - Peggy gradually progressed into more of a 1960s gal, but she still donned this kind of attire for church and for visits with the priest.
Peggy is all about the neckline detail - be it bows, collars and other embellishments. I think this is why I love her wardrobe so much, I'm a sucker for neckline detail!
Her love of neckline detail transcends just blouses and tops - it's something she seems to go for in dresses too.
Oh, and she's quite fond of the occasional waistline detail too!
This dress really calls out to me, the colours, the sweetheart neckline! Hmmm, I think I may have a similar pattern in my stash...
And this dress is just pure class! Have you seen Julia Bobbin's stunning knockoff? You really should go take a look, it's seriously impressive!
How gorgeous is this deep red rose print dress? It's also super cool for incorporating a collar and a bow! What on earth is Peggy's hair doing though!?!
I've left the best for last in my opinion. It would be great to see Peggy dolled up like this a bit more - she can certainly pull off this sultry look!
What do you think of Peggy Olson's style? Are you a fan? More importantly, are you delirious with joy that Mad Men Season 5 will be gracing our UK screens this Tuesday!!??!! Lucky Americans get their special 2hr fix tonight!
Fancy ogling my previous Mad Men style posts? Look no further...
