“Isn’t This Suppose to Be Scary?”

Due to the Hollywood’s hosting of the H.P. Lovecraft Festival, our weekly screening of Mad Men moved venues for the evening over to Sam’s Billiards, thankfully just one block from the Hollywood Theatre.

The evening’s dress was made by my mum in 1970 during her senior year at college.  I paired it with lots of blue accessories, since I think yellow and blue (in lighter sides of course) are a wonderful color combination.

Scarf: Thrifted
Dress: Made by my mum, circa 1970
Brooch: Antique Alley, Portland
Bangle: Was also my mum’s
Shoes: The Clothes Horse, Eugene
Purse: Gift

Other Episode Outfits
501/502, 503, 504, 505, 506, 507, 510, 511, 512, 513

For more on the episode…

It wasn’t a stellar episode, but it wasn’t totally lackluster either. There was a lot going on, and honestly, a lot going on that I didn’t much care for.  Everyone in the episode was just plain annoying.  From Megan’s inability to handle Sally to Betty bitter attempt at sabotage to Sally’s rudeness to Don’s selfishness to Roger’s inability to keep it in his pants to Michael’s boasting to Pete’s wretched affair to Jane blaming everything on Roger.  I’m bored with many of the plot lines going on (mainly Betty and Megan – now that we’ve found out her little “secret”), and am more than ready for a shift back to Joan and how she’s handling being a single mom as well as Lane.  The highlight of the episode was Megan helping her friend rehearse for an audition for Dark Shadows (where the episode gets its namesake).  I loved her friend’s dramatic, over the top-ness, and Megan’s accusations that the show was “crap” and argued that the show was “suppose to be scary”.  I ended up being the only person in the room to giggle during the scene.  I guess maybe I was the only audience member who has actually watched the series.

Here’s hoping next week brings more Joanie.

  1. Yellow and blue were my primary school uniform colours and despite this, I still love the colour combo.

  2. Ohhh this makes me want a yellow dress SO BAD! I love the blue accessories, they really make the outfit pop!

    Mmm I found this episode to be a bit blah…but I did love the focus on Sally, she reminds me a lot of myself as a little girl. I hope they focus on Joan more next episode too…I am so bored of Megan, she just can’t seem to do anything wrong. And I guess that’s the point, but I mean they’ve been making that point from the start, it’s gotten so old now.
    I keep thinking Peggy and Ginsberg are going to get together…I wish they just would already!

  3. What a sweet, cheerfully summer outfit. The pairing of soft yellow and bright blue looks absolutely beautiful on you, dear gal.

    Wishing you a terrific Tuesday,
    ♥ Jessica

  4. Cute outfit! I’m a big fan of yellow and blue combinations and I also quite like darker blues with yellow too.

    I’ve been missing Lane. Looking forward to seeing him in next week’s episode!
