The stylish women of Mad Men: (from left) Betty, Joan, and Peggy

The third season of AMC 's Golden Globe winning show Mad Men premieres Sunday August 16th and we're celebrating with a tip of the hat to the show's 50s style Old Hollywood glamour. Though the show is based on the trials and tribulations of Wall Street tycoons during the post-war era, the real reason to tune in is the elegant, drool-worthy fashions donned by the series' ferocious women. Refusing to settle as secondary characters, Betty, Joan, and Peggy traipse through episodes wreaking havoc in their circle skirts and form-fitting frocks, a look that we modern day girls often fantasize about reviving. Now we can with the help of California-based retail site From sweetheart necklines to corseted bodices to pencil skirts, this retail outlet brims with trademark looks from the show's era, offering the opportunity for all of us to infuse a little (seemingly) demure diva into our current wardrobe. Whether you're a Betty, a Joan, or a Peggy, choose your favorite character and Unique Vintage will find ways for you to channel her style. Dresses range from $68 to $300, a small price to pay for blindsiding an old-fashioned husband or colleague who thinks it may still be a man's world. We know better. After viewing these dresses we're starting to think Kipling seemed to know his stuff when he said the female of the species is more deadly than the male. Happy Mad Men Weekend!
