MYHABIT recently asked me to be a contributor on their blog, MYHABIT theFix, with a mission to style a duo of Mad Men inspired outfits. Using a few of their vintage inspired garments and accessories and mixing them with my own wardrobe, I went overboard and did three (if I had time, I would have done several more). I couldn't think of a more fun way to celebrate the return of one of my favorite shows, which seems to have ended ages ago. As someone whose style is heavily inspired by the 60s, I found an immediate favorite in Mad Men: first, because of the fashion and then because the story sucked me in. The hoopla surrounding its season premiere is anything but scarce (in-flight Mad Men runway show, anyone?) and I'm thrilled to be able to partake in it. Not only that: I also have a television now - with DVR! - so I can watch it on the actual date of the premiere. We live in the future, my friends. Or more likely, I finally live in the present.

As the show progresses, they get further away from Betty Draper's New Look ensembles and closer to cigarette pants, cropped jackets and shift dresses. Still, I couldn't help but break out my late fifties cocktail dress for a few pictures, too. It's not every day that I can get away with it!

  14. Three outfits here, and my favorite is the third one. Love the petticoat along with the sandals. Second favorite would be the scalloped dress with those cute sandals. The peplum top and the lovely slingback pumps are my favorite elements of the first look. Great stuff, Keiko Lynn!

    And I love the way you use and style your H&M clothes. Because I´m from sweden I see H&M clothes everywhere I go. So thank you for giving H&M clothes some elegance!
