Mad Men Collection Inspiration
Knowing your "character" is the key to cultivating your style. 
The Fashion File by Janie Bryant
In collaboration with the infamous Banana Republic, Janie Bryant works her magic at creating timeless pieces inspired by the fabulous and scandalous 1960's. Bryant, the award winning costume designer of AMC's Mad Men believes "people love to romanticize the early 1960's. It's the period of our Camelot and our Kennedys . . . also the silhouettes of those clothes have never really gone out of style" ( The 65 piece collection is currently in stores providing the perfect opportunity to start your fall shopping! I personally am coveting the lace shell (available in black, cream, and cafe au lait) which would pair nicely with my black capri pants and leopard drivers. The cigarette pants are also noteworthy, as is the houndstooth dress and the bracelet sleeve jacket. (I better stop before I reference the entire collection!) The 1960's have always held the most respected and influential spot in my list of fashion icons; I find myself constantly referencing Jackie O, Audrey Hepburn, and of course, the fashion of Mad Men. In that decade, women knew how to dress for their bodies. So, in this decade, bedeck yourself in all things lustily attractive as this fall is all about the feminine silhouette: timeless, intriguing, sexy, and understated in an effortless fashion. Cheers to that.
