Like Peggy, Credle started out as a secretary at the real-life agency BBDO New York. Over the course of 24 years, she worked her way up to executive creative director. Perhaps this is how Mad Men will end with Peggy taking over and moving to Chicago?!
When I asked Susan if she had a favorite outfit or item of clothing that made her feel powerful, she said that she dresses depending on how she feels that day, or for a particular client or brand. This is really what personal style is all about: self-expression and communication.
Fashion is all about taking risks, and this is a big one. However, I think it's well played. She looks edgy, comfortable and incredibly chic. And I'm not just saying this because she's the big boss :)
