Mad Men Yourself

Pick out a dress, pretty yourself up, and download the result as an icon or desktop wallpaper: Mad Men Yourself. Here's what I would look like as a Sterling Cooper secretary... I think I could give Joan a run for her money, non?

p.s - the big news... yes, that's about me!

To my loyal fan Lindsey - I promise this will not become a wedding blog.

Club Monaco :: Statement Blazer

Hello statement blazer.  Earlier this spring I discussed wanting a cut away blazer for the Fall and I think this blazer might be exactly what I’ve been waiting for.  While it will not replace my desire for a cape coat, it is something I can wear on heavy rotation for work, and dressed down on Fridays or on the weekend with a cute denim skirt.  Extra points for being preppy and the perfect shade of grey!  Gold stars to Club Monaco for revisiting the classics for Fall.    


Save or Splurge?

Two years ago I bought the most beautiful blush pink elbow length calf-skin leather gloves and I have yet to wear them because I don’t have a cape.  I’ve been looking for a cape coat with a traditional bell sleeve, a belted waist, and in a colour other than black.  Paul and Joe released the most beautiful cape for fall that meets all my requirements, except the price.  Anthropologie has also released a version for fall that is very similar and very affordable. The P&J version is a bit more refined and classically chic, however the collar on the Anthropologie jacket is to die for.  Should I save or splurge?

Kate Spade Debut!

Holy Mack! Have you seen the new Kate Spade collection? I'm so in love with each of these pieces but if I had to pick just one, it would be the Madeleine Mona Coat (top left). I'm considering selling a kidney so I can justify owning that coat...

Mastering the Art of French Cooking

On Saturday the Dr and I went to see Julie and Julia. I wasn't sure what to expect but it was awesome and I left the theatre feeling so inspired that I went out the very next day and found a hardcover edition of Mastering the Art of French Cooking by Julia Child. First up is Julia's famous Boeuf Bourguignon!

I can't resist

Ok so these aren't actually my new converse.... But if I ever found a pair of these I wouldn't be able to resist owning them. They are absolutely adorable; almost as adorable as the blog I found them on.
