I’m sure many of our loyal readers were missing this week’s Mad Men Style Recap, but due to the demands of fashion week, I missed the episode and still haven’t watched it. This just means that Sunday’s recap will be twice as nice.
To compensate for the lack of Mad Men during fashion week, I sat down with Mad Men costume designer Janie Bryant at the QVC pop-up store. Janie was promoting her aptly titled QVC line, Janie Bryant MOD, and had been perkily signing tees and chatting up loyal fans.
Janie’s QVC line is just everything I’d hoped it would be: Tons of faux leopard in the form of hats, capelets, and bags, charming necklaces that do double duty with detachable brooches, and stunning nail polish colors. Inspired by the ’50s and ’60s, vintage Vogues, and the timelessness of true movie stars, the collection has the elegant touches every modern girl’s wardrobe needs.
My favorite piece is the leopard purse, which looks expensive yet rings in at only $79.75. Janie recommends the leopard cape, inspired by her own collection of vintage capes. (Can you even imagine how glorious that must be?) Tune into QVC at 10pm or go online to get your own. Trust me, they’re sure to sell out fast.
And make sure to take Janie’s advice: “Become your own leading lady.”
