Peggy Olson's (Elizabeth Moss) is a junior copywriter at Sterling Copper. Once a bit of an odd duck, Peggy's new found self confidence makes you want to shout "you go girl". Her own office with a window, smoking marijuana, my gosh what's next burning her bra? That's not till seasons 7, but I can't wait!
This week fashion inspiration is a farewell to the old Peggy. No more little girl with a ponytail, even though I have to admit I'll miss her sweater's a bit.
