Go Shopping: Janie Bryant's Mad Men Collection for Banana Republic

Yes, Yes, YES!! I could not be more excited or thrilled for this! Here's a first look at Janie Bryant's new Mad Men inspired capsule collection! As we all know I have a slight obsession with things Mad Men (here and here) as well as a hardcore twitter following of Janie (one of my Twitter convos with her started here) Whether you identify more with Peggy, Joan or Betty [yes please!] you won't be disappointed with the pieces in this collection. These images are filled with amazing printed shift dresses, fabulous pants and full skirts. All that's missing is your martini glass and your lit cigarette. Oh and don't worry dapper men! There are sexy suits and sweater options for you too! Let's take a peek:

I am gushing over these two looks and need them immediately. It's everything I love about 60's fashion. The silhouettes, the pants, the lace. And I love how she puts her modern twist on it by incorporating leopard into the shoes, bag and jacket. Pure Pure Genius. I bow down to you JB.

Another fabulous pairing. I'm guessing Joan and Peggy. The gloves and the headscarf are a fabulous nod to the era while the two piece suit in [guessing again] wool keeps it fresh. Also more leopard and a great use of color and lace for the 2nd style. It's just the right amount of everything.

I so wish that my husband could dress like this everyday! That sweater with the rolled up sleeves, tailored pants and shirt is practically making me drool. And of course it wouldn't be Mad Men without a gorgeous 3 piece suit and a masculine hat to top off the look.

The collection hits stores on August 11th with a Facebook pre-order on the 10th. Janie told magazine InStyle that she hopes the collection is about "bringing a dressed up look to American style for the modern man and woman" I'll tell you one thing: With items like this in my closet I'd want to dress up every day. What do you think of the collection? Any pieces you would sport? See more images over at InStyle's site here
