Mad Men Inspired Christmas List

With hits like "Plain Jane," "Dream Lover," & "Beyond The Sea" this is a MUST have. Bobby Darin Collection
A little Betty Draper dress never hurt anyone. One of a kind on Etsy, get it if you're lucky!

Vintage clock's are always in. Purchase Here.

What would the list be without a beverage? Pretty penny, but SO worth it.

Peggy is a modest woman, when she wants to be. With lacey scallop edges, you are ready for spring trends.
Cooper doesn't REALLY have to leave....your heart.
                                                                     Art is GOOD.

I want to dress Joan too with the Mad Man Illustrator. Urban Outfitter always has good gifts.

How could we leave out this iconic piece? (Plus, totally handy!) I want this, probably the MOST. =)
I'm sure these are SUPER rare! Lucky Strike Cuff Links.
Lane Pryce would have this at home. Hand Printed!

Joan would NOT wear this to the office, but an office party perhaps. Get it while you can!

The list could not be more complete with a velvet headboard. Only down side is, it makes you wish Betty & Don were still together! Make your home a Draper home.
And of course, learn everything about this show at AMC's website.

Could I love Mad Men more? Turns out... yes!

One of my favorite shows that I love (along with every person with good taste) is Mad Men. Don Draper, Betty, Joan, Peggy, Richard, they are all amazingly characters played by an even more talented cast.

THEN I saw January Jones (drooooool) on the red carpet. Versace!!!!

Could there be anything more perfect? I think her hair was my favorite touch, because it was very underplayed & not the prissy cred carpet hair we usually see. Her dress reminds me of the plastic cup dress Daniel made on Project Runway.IN A GOOD WAY, lol, like the construction (and color duh).

Then there's Christina Hendricks. She is so great with how she deals with her body.

And her great new ads for London Fog where she couldn't be more fitting for the brand.

And now in an amazing Zac Posen dress for the Emmys! When I look at his clothes I see ultra feminine with brains, and that is so fitting for Joan.

Jon Hamm always looks fabulous. Always. (His girlfriend also had a great pick in that Armani dress)

The only thing is, I feel like Elisabeth Moss should have done a (little) more with her hair - who am I to judge? - I do think her dress is a perfect fit for her body, that we know is quite traditional hourglass, thanks to the help of season three's strip to make Stan own up to his words. (One of my favorite parts)

Now my Mad Men inspired Christmas list is starting, posting it tonight by midnight! Enjoy!

Botanical Inspiration

The botanical gardens were very inspiring. Something about cacti makes me want it translated to everything: hair, jewelry, jackets, everything!
                                           I think these lines would make a great brooch.
                                          Hair bobbles.
                                          Print for a lady like dress.
             This stimulates me to think that something that looks dangerous & hard should be soft.
                       The teal & maroon.. nature has a great eye for color.
                                                                       Not only does this look like a healthy version of an onion bloom, I love the white border trim - I love to make borders and boxes around sketches.
                                   Color inspiration! Makes me think of Spring Prada.
  This makes me think of a spike cuffed bracelet where the spikes spiral upwards, or maybe translate it onto jacket sleeves.

Do you see what I mean? I swear I did not take peyote. :)
