Mad Me?


I have heard all sorts of wonderful things about Mad Men.  At this point, I really want to watch it, I just need to find the time and DVDs.  What I *can* do for now though, is admire the clothes.  In particular those belonging to Joan Holloway.  You see, she is a gorgeous curvy woman that isn't afraid of her curves.  Its taken me a while to figure this out, but I think my body type is very similar to hers.  After reading this post by A of The Glamourous Grad Student, I went digging through my closet to see if I could find anything Joan-eque.  What I came up with was the skirt from my interview suit.  I absolutely love this suit, but until today (Saturday), it didn't occur to me to really love the skirt as a high waisted pencil skirt. 
So, what do you guys think?  Is this Joan-esque? Does it work on me the same way it does on her? (Be honest, you won't hurt my feelings) 

The Details:
Gray top: H&M
Navy Skirt: Nine West suit
Heels: Aldo
Necklace: Banana Republic Outlet 

As an aside--I asked The Fiance what he thought about this outfit.  His response, "It shows off your curves." <3 him!

I think you look fantastic - very va-va-voom! The only thing that's not so Joan about the outfit is the color scheme. I feel like she goes for browns and jewel tones more than greys. Way to rock that pencil skirt!
