A Day in the Life: A Mad Makeover at Banana Republic
With 30% off everything in the store and free makeovers from the talented make-up artists from Shiseido at Saks Fifth Avenue, this event was here to celebrate Mad Men's exclusive casting call with Banana Republic.
If you attended the chic soiree, then you are in luck because you had the benefit of receiving a lovely Mad Men inspired makeover as I did. The make-up artist decided to give me a sun-kissed Mad Men look which might I add, looked radiant. She applied shades of brown and gold eyeshadow, pink blush and red lips which accented my blue, purple and yellow dress wonderfully.
When it came to the fashion, Banana Republic stayed true to form with a slew of soft neutral pieces in dresses, cardigans and skirts. My favourite pieces were a buttery soft taupe biker jacket without too many doodads. It had two bias cut lapels and a small silver zipper, just the way I like it. I also enjoyed a lightweight denim boyfriend blazer with flap pockets and a tie at the waist. It is the perfect in between season jacket (Definition: a jacket that you can wear in the spring and autumn).
If you have always wanted to enter the Mad Men universe, all you have to do is visit a local
Banana Republic (in the United States or Canada), take one of the Mad Men brochures, go home and take a photo of yourself in your Mad Men attire and submit that photo along with the unique code in your brochure and you will be entered for a chance to a walk-on role on Mad Men!
Easy as pie!
