Mad Men Yourself: Trudy’s “Ruin You” Shirtdress


Since Megan Draper spent nearly the entire episode in a quilted bathrobe (save for a plaid pants/cable sweater ensemble), I found myself a bit disappointed by the fashion this episode. But I was excited to see the return of Trudy Campbell, the gorgeous (Pasadena native) Alison Brie!  Her watercolor party dress reminded me of  Naeem Kahn (like the one we featured in our March spring fashion shoot with New Girl’s Hannah Simone) but it was the casual green striped button down shirtdress she wore when she handed her husband Pete his ass, that caught my attention. It’s the kind of dress you can wear to work, to a house party, to run errands, or when you have to lay down the law and tell your two-timing lover that you will ruin him.  As always, vintage options run aplenty on Etsy, but check out the slideshow above for variations on the frock from Burberry, Diane Von Furstenberg, and the Gap.

And because I can’t help it, I threw in a bonus— a modern-spin on Megan singular outfit this episode.
