Banana Republic Goes Completely Mad!

Mark your calendars! For those of you, like myself, who watch Mad Men and wish that you could be transported back into the 1960s, your dreams are about to come true. Banana Republic has collaborated with the hit series to recreate the show's classic looks--think fitted pencil skirts, printed shift dresses, and chic cardigans priced from $45 to $175--that Joan Holloway and Betty Draper love to flaunt. From July 21st through August 11th (the third season of Mad Men premieres August 16th) BR stores will be Mad Men-themed. Customers will be able to purchase 1960s-style outfits, pick up a Style Guide on the show's characters, and even enter to win a walk-on role on the third season plus a $1,000 Banana Republic gift card! Just think of how many twin sets that would buy.
