Apparently Talbot's received the memo:
Talbots are definitely attempting a vibe makeover. But I doubt they'll ever do a real five-star Joanie, they are too innately conservative. The Joanie dress needs to be lower and tighter... but then she knows a good alterations place, I'm sure.
Nice. Talbots has been really stepping up lately.
Duchesse - I agree, but to really do The Full Joanie, I think requires far more serious undergarments and tailoring. I'd bet that most women are bustier than the model, and would fill the top out more.Bonjour Madame - they really have, I think. None of these are really my style, but I'm impressed with the effort.
Was there a few days ago and really liked the cane-print pieces. They are interspersed with the obdurate twill pants and interlock polos that would outfit a woman's field-hockey team for bus travel to away games. Think they should decide who they want to be.
Hah! Well spotted, Deja.
I am so Peggy. I still think Ann Taylor is hipper than Talbot's. Hope you are feeling good this week.:)
Good eye, Miss Pseu. All lady-like, timeless and very wearable.
Good catch! For what it's worth, Banana Republic had a few great Joan office-to-dinner dresses last fall. I bought two.
I'd rather go full vintage than the watered down Talbots version.
I´m not keen on the fashion of this era. Not the originals, nor the new ones. Focused on the future...
Couple problems - I don't like most the prints I'm seeing now, and I do unfortunately need to cover my arms.
Erghhh--why does everything have a waist? Pure misery for me, and I'm sure, others. Talbots catalog looks so nice, and I succumbed and ordered a bunch on sale with free shipping...and the fit was as boxy as ever and all got returned.
I so want the "Peggy"!
Sooo pretty! And Mad Men is just about to show free-to-air here in Australia! Yay!
Dites moi vos pensées...
