I want to grow up to be Peggy Olson

I had intended to come in here and wax poetic about my opinions on women in business and leaning in or whatever. But then I got caught in a rabbit hole of finding the perfect Peggy Olson outfit with which to illustrate my point. Kind of shot myself in the foot on that one. So this post is about Mad Men.

I know it infuriates Floyd, because he is the OG hipster and had a liquor cabinet in the office before it was cool.

Someone said we were like Mad Men yesterday. I know it infuriates Floyd, because he is the OG hipster Don Draper. He had a liquor cabinet in the office before it was cool. However as someone who breathlessly watched every episode at least twice before I even knew I would work in advertising, I can’t get enough of it.

I’m constantly relating things in my head to that time on Mad Men, so I’m glad outsiders also recognize the epic coolness and drama and excitement and lovable cast of characters that makes us JUST LIKE MAD MEN.

Of course, I get to be Peggy.

Because she is everything.
