Please excuse the rather poor image quality! This dress was worn in the Season 2 episode "Maidenform" which you may remember as the episode where the team get creative over ideas for a new Playtex campaign and suggest that every woman is either a "Jackie or a Marilyn."
This dress was actually the first item I ever purchased on Etsy back in 2010. It is a "Doris Fein Original" and at the time I purchased it, I didn't know it had been on the TV show so you can imagine my surprise when re-watching Season 2 on DVD and I see one of the secretaries wearing my dress! Cue lots of 'rewind and pause' moments. As this is obviously not the only dress ever made, I am not suggesting that this exact same dress made its way from the show's extensive wardrobe into my wardrobe but it is still pretty exciting to own a dress that has been seen on Mad Men.
And I am not the only one that this has happened to! A while back I saw this post on the Couture Allure blog and how the blogger had her very own "Mad Men Moment." Have any of you ever had one of your vintage items featured on Mad Men or another period TV show? If you have, I would love to see!
