Sicka x PLR: Holiday Gift Guide – Joan Holloway Edition

joan_mad men
Roger Sterling isn’t the only one whose heart skips a beat at the sight of Joan Holloway (or Joan Harris, if we refer to the newlywed by her married name), the voluptuous redhead who efficiently ran the Sterling Cooper ad agency (well, until midway through Mad Men’s third season, when she got hitched to a rapist handsome doctor). Fortunately, those of you who tuned in for the Season three finale know Joan will once again keep the advertising boys in check at their new upstart company — which should make for a really entertaining fourth season.

After all, Joan is more than eye candy for the boys and style inspiration for the girls:  she’s discreet and capable of keeping mum about the most sordid personal affairs pertaining to her superiors; she rules the secretary pool with equal parts charm and venom; and she’s magnetizing — even when she’s having a decidedly bitchy moment. Best of all, maybe now that she’s working with Roger again on a day-to-day basis, the two will finally dump their loser spouses and get together (hey, a gal can dream, right?). If nothing else, we’ll get to see Christina Hendricks strutting her stuff in her hip-hugging dresses, pencil skirts, snug sweaters, intricate updos, red fingernails, and that signature pen necklace.

Here, a gift guide inspired by Joan Holloway — and those who, like me, can’t get enough of her style.
