60's Mad Style

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
A strange new obsession I've had lately is vintage clothing. Fashion seems to run circles around time, every few years or so, things that are considered out of date become fashionable again. I would be lying if I said I wasn't completely in love with the show Mad Men, but part of what I like about the show are the costumes. A lot of which are coming back in style. Like the pleated, flowing skirts that are midway to your shins, loafers, and cute headbands with a bob haircut. Ralph Lauren and Gucci have a head start in their Spring 2012 fashion shows with styles that resembled a 1920's flapper girl. This season looks like it's going to be a bit like your grandmother's closet.  Not to mention Banana Republic already did a Mad Men collection for both men and women

On Sale Today!

Personally, I think Alexa Chung is one of the greatest style icons of our time. There is no doubt that i would wear every single article of clothing she owns. Last year Alexa designed a few pieces for a Madewell collection, clearly it did well since she is back with a brand new collection and more pieces than last time. Madewell is a fairly expensive store, considering it is a branch of J Crew, but every once in a while if you go at the right time (especially at the end of the season), you can find some unbelievable sales. Madewell's style is rather rustic and tomboyish. They mostly specialize in denim and very casual wear. Alexa Chung's collection is a bit more girly, and based on the pictures, I'm sure it will be an even bigger success than her last one.

Destination : 5th Avenue

Our spontaneous trip to the city....
Sometimes life and reality just get in the way of your plans. We spent weeks planning a trip with friends that ultimately failed. So.. when in doubt go to the city, that's our motto and maybe anyone else who is from jersey. The fashion and art capitol of America is barely 20 minutes by bus so we decided to have a long awaited trip to 5th Ave, and have Breakfast at Tiffany's, then walk around a little till we had to go back home. These are the pictures from our day! 

we danced on the biggest piano in the world
