Oh, Orla!

We love Orla Kiely's take on mid century modern designs. Her new fall line of dresses are to. die. for. Things to crib (from our shop, or other vintage sources) include Peter Pan collars in contrasting colors, fitted waistlines, patterned tights with patterned dresses , glam hair (Elnet is now available in the US), and smudgy black eyeliner.

What would Don Draper Do?

Smile, straighten your cuffs and punch him in the face, that's what.

We're back from the Midwest with a bunch of treasures in tow, but while I download all the pics from my camera, I will get us all a little excited for the return of Mad Men this Sunday. I am anticipating another season of drinking on the job, illicit affairs, and mostly the freaking perfect outfits worn by Joan and Betty and all the other ladies (even little pony-tail Peggy has an enviable piece once every few episodes. Hopefully they give her character a sense of style soon).

I love these images that Annie Leibovitz took for Vanity Fair. Le sigh:

And since there are still six whole days to wait before you can catch the first episode, you can spend plenty of time playing around on MadMenYourself. I just like changing my cartoon's outfit seven times.

Gone Fishing

Just a quick note to let you know we're packing up our Animal Head shop for the week and heading to the midwest for a taste of what summer is really like, and to go scope out the Longest Yard Sale in the world for some more treasures to stock the shop.

I know we have been a little quiet around here lately, but we'll have some real gems for the shop in another week or so!
