The blogoshere is bumping with anticipation for the Season 4 Mad Men premiere. What’s not love about 1960s office glamour, politics and gender struggles? People even went to offices back then!
But enough with the social commentary…here’s a little jewelry roundup and cocktail menu inspired by the show’s leading ladies. A warm thank you to my friend Kathryn, who’s responsible for helping you look and feel your best when hosting a Sunday night viewing party.
Blippy Bipolar Betty (Dark ‘n’ Stormy)
Though Betty is known for drinking gimlets, which suggest “cool, collected, slightly alcoholic homemaker,” all of the recent turmoil in the Draper household calls for something a little more dramatic. A departure from Betty’s typical style, and designed to look like an impending tempest, the dark ‘n’ stormy fits the bill.
6 oz Ginger Beer (Maine Root, Barritt’s, or Gosling’s)
2 oz Gosling’s Black Seal Rum
Pour ginger beer over ice in a collins glass and gently top with the rum. Garnish with a lime wedge.
All top right jewels are part of Tiffany’s Schlumberger collection (new or vintage). All bottom left rings reflect what these the ladies’ granddaughters might wear today.
