Confession time: I have a thing for Mad Men. I have been known to wax poetic about the plot, show, characters and genius of creator Matthew Weiner to anyone within earshot.
Now that I am growing out my hair and changing my style a bit, the ice queen goddess Elizabeth “Betty” Hofstadt Draper Francis herself has been a source of style inspiration. Just look at her…
Naturally, when one of my favorite tumblrs, Betty Draper Looking Pissed, called for contest submissions, I sent in my best Betty Draper “looking pissed because Sally and Bobby’s playing disrupted her beach reading” faces.
Looking back, to be truly Betty I probably needed a lit cigarette and Coca-Cola, but I do what I can.
The other submissions were fantastic. It was fun to be a part of a tumblr fandom competition like that. But guess what happened?
I won! Things like this never happen to me! It was so exciting. And I got to choose between three Mad Men themed art prints. I’m definitely going to choose this one!
If you are not familiar with Mad Men, this wonderful fan video should tell you a bit about Don and Betty Draper.
Visit Betty Draper Looking Pissed and check out my Esther Williams bathing suit on Modcloth.
