There are shows on tv that are awesome, and then there’s Honey Boo Boo. I refuse to get into that for fear of losing you forever – you’re welcome. So while I rarely have the time or attention span to watch anything for longer than 30-ish minutes I have found myself falling back in love with Mad Men. Why? John Hamm in a suit, for starters. Also because it’s everything I love wrapped into one series – great storyline, an always evolving ad agency, vintage everything, attractive people who are also interesting and the fashion. I die for pretty much everything worn by any female on any given episode. So yes, the show itself is educational really for us twenty-something vixen career types, teaching invaluable lessons for work and play through chic leading ladies, i.e. Betty, Joan and Peggy.
So what have we learned?
A good lunch outing makes everything better.
Pearls and diamonds are baller.
If you want to be taken seriously stop dressing like a little girl.
Embrace feminine fabrics. Oh, and fitted dresses. Silhouettes are everything.
Only boring people are bored.
Don’t throw your significant other a surprise party and make yourself the entertainment. It will always be awkward.
Ask for what you want.
