Mad Men Dress Challenge: Choosing

JuliaBobbin is hosting a Mad Men dress challenge and I'm quite excited! Now I have to admit I've never watched Mad Men(gasp!) but I've always enjoyed photos from the show with the fabulous clothing they always wear. Plus I've been getting amazing vintage patterns from work so this is a great chance for me to start using them!

These are my favorite outfit inspirations

Okay, so I don't have the curves that Christina does, but I love this style and still think it would quite versatile.

This Pucci esque maxi is absolutely amazing but where to find fabric that would do this justice?

This dress has such a fabulous extra layer on the skirt that wraps at the front which I really like!

I really like the way this contrasting fabric band

I love Betty's multi colored dress with the layered ruffles!

Okay this isn't a dress but it is a fantastic suit with a leopard blouse and I have a pattern just like this!
