Last night brought the season finale of Mad Men and a crowd of well dressed people to Portland’s Hollywood Theatre.
For the evening I wore a different dress than I intended. Originally I was going to wear a chartreuse number that I thrifted awhile back, but when I walked into Hollywood Babylon this last week and saw this hanging up, I knew I had to have it.
The dress reminded me of something that Miss Kitka (Catwoman’s disguise persona in 1966’s Batman: The Movie) would wear.
The Best Dressed Contest brought nearly 20 people to the stage, dressed to the nines. I lost out to a very well dressed married couple. The woman was wearing a fabulous 1960s champagne colored satin and lace cocktail dress that I would loved to have called my own.
Jacket: Bombshell Vintage, Portland
(New) Shirt: Nordstorm
Tie: Flea market
Trousers: An antique mall in McMinnville…I think.
Well that wraps it up for season five! I hope you enjoyed all the outfits!
To read my thoughts on the episode…
I’ll be honest, I felt this was a rather lackluster season finale. There were not any insane twists or bombs dropped…maybe we had too many of those throughout the season though. I loved that we got to see Peggy again, and it makes me believe that maybe she isn’t going to be totally off the radar for future episodes. I feel the episode could have done with a bit more Roger and Joan and a whole lot less Pete. One of the biggest things discussed in the after show cocktails that we had with our hostess Nico Bella and others was the closing scene when Don is asked “Are you alone?” and we began to wonder…is the old Don back? And by that we mean…the criminally two-timing cad that we were all introduced to in the very beginning and suffered through season after season until he married Megan. But, quite seriously, that got old…and very, very annoying. Which is why I found this season so very refreshing regarding Don. I quite liked seeing him happy. In the behind the seasons video on AMC’s website creator Matthew Weiner said that Don falls in love with Megan all over again when he is watching her screen test, but also stated there is also the chance that Megan may leave Don. But if we end up opening season six with Don with another woman, I don’t know what I’ll do. Seriously, the man has slept with at least 12 women! He needs help if he can’t keep his act together relationship wise.
Gosh, anyone know when season six is slated to air?
