Happy Birthday To The Incredible Diana Vreeland!

Today, September 29th, is the incomparable Diana Vreeland's 111th Birthday.

She is a constant source of inspiration for us, We admire her for always dreaming and continuing to gain inspiration from the world around her, and above all always being unique and extraordinary.  

Here are a few of our favorite quotes from her column “Why dont you….?”:

  • “Why don't you…Rinse your blond child's hair in dead champagne to keep it gold, as they do in France?”
  • “wear violet velvet mittens with everything?”
  •  “Why don't you…Find one dress that you like and have it copied many times? You will be much more successful than if you try to produce the same effects each evening.”
  • “Why Don't You…Have your bed made in China—the most beautiful bed imaginable, the head board and spread of yellow satin embroidered in butterflies, alighting and flying, in every size and in exquisite colors?” 
  • “Why don't you…give a length of exquisite brocade–enough for an evening envelope, to bind a favorite book, or make a little jacket?”
  • “Why don't you…tie an enormous bunch of silver balloons on the foot of your child's bed on Christmas Eve?”

& here is a look into her beautiful life:

#10 Reasons We're Voting For Janie Bryant

Our Favorite Costume Designer and Dear Friend, Janie Bryant, is Nominated for her work on The AMC hit Show MADMEN in Outstanding Costumes For A Series - 2014 at The 66th Annual Emmy Awards

Here we have 10 reasons why our vote goes to Janie Bryant! 

1.

Betty Draper when in rome, id wear this too ;) 

2.

We loved watching Peggy Olson from Secretary to empowered woman 

3.

Megan Draper's evening gown choices 

4.

Sally Draper we love you, and those shoes

5.

Janie makes even a casual outfit like this one Betty Francis is wearing, look so chic and memorable

6.

Joan Holloway's outfits always compliment her hair beautifully and this knit dress is so sexy yet work appropriate. cheers to knit day dresses

 

7.

She dresses the characters who have small roles, such as Bethany Van Nuys and Bonnie Whiteside, the same as she does with reoccuring roles: they all have their own identity & style. These are two brilliant costume choices.

8. 

The ever evolving style of Betty Draper & the amazing styling of her son in that little blue suit!

10.

Megan Draper in her Mod and perfectly 60's style. That head scarf is so Rhoda from The Mary Tyler Moore Show
