**Outrageous declaration warning**
Until I put this post together, I don't think I fully appreciated Joan's style. Yes, I knew she was hot and that her clothes were nice, but I think I was too hung up on the fact that they weren't necessarily styles I would wear.
Can you believe this? I'm finding it hard to understand myself! I mean her style is incredible - the stunning cut and fit of her clothes, the array of gorgeous colours, the incredible little details and not to mention her perfect pout and feline eyes. Oh and I love, love, love how she dispels all those ridiculous myths that redheads can't wear certain colours...Joanie looks great in pretty much all colours!
Right, so now I've discovered and declared my new obsession with Joan Harris (nee Holloway), I think it's only fair that I share some of my most favourite outfits of this saucy, sexy, sultry office temptress - images courtesy of Tom + Lorenzo.
Joanie sure does rock hues of blues and purples
Just look at the neckline detailing in both these photos - so sweet!
It's not often you see Joan vulnerable, but she's even more lovable for it
Who said redheads can't wear pink and red? An idiot, that's who! She looks sweet as a pie in this pink number!
And isn't the low back of this dress and the bow detail too cute for words?!?
Despite the tears, Joanie's makeup is still flawless! I also love the asymmetric neckline and brooch.
Another sweet neckline and brooch on the olive green dress!
Aqua is also a flattering colour on Joan and I particularly like the ruffled detail on the dress on the right - delicious!
It's not often you see Joanie wearing prints - she loves a good monochrome - but I'm pretty sure that there's nothing this gal can't pull off. Both outfits below totally float my boat!
Oh and did I mention that she also has a nice blouse or two?
Of course this post would not be complete without a few of Joan's signature dresses. The blue one has inspired lovely creations by the likes of Julia Bobbin and Joanne. And the black and rose print has been masterfully recreated by Gertie. You really must check these ladies' dresses out, you won't regret it!
And finally, my personal favourite! I love the colour, the sleeves and how silky the fabric looks. Just scrumptious!
Phew! I don't know about you, but I'm all fired up for Mad Men Season 5 now...just a few hours before we UK folk can get our fix!
Also, have you seen all the Mad Med Dress Challenge posts popping up all over the place? It's exhilarating! Have you taken part and will you be posting about it soon? I'll be sharing mine something this week for sure.
Fancy ogling my previous Mad Men style posts? Look no further...
