Mad Men

After many people telling me that I would love the show Mad Men, I decided to start watching it (all the past seasons are on Netflix Watch Instantly!). I must confess that I'm really getting into it after a few episodes .... I'm also loving the clothes! Recently, Banana Republic launched their limited edition Mad Men collection for men and women with Mad Men's costume designer, Janie Bryant. Lovely!

Some favorites from the collection ....

A few favorites from the show ....

A Video by Buffalo Picture House

Two filmakers went out during the hurricane to document the surprising quiet (and beauty) of New York City streets.

Stormy Weather

Hope that everyone on the East Coast is getting through the hurricane alright. I got on one of the last trains back to NYC from Connecticut before the MTA shut down. Once back, we stood in line for an hour and ten minutes at the grocery store! Chaos! Today everything is still closed and shutdown, but things don't seem too bad in Manhattan. We decided to bunker up and cook some food, read, and watch movies. Hope you are all doing the same!

Loafer Love

I'm on the hunt for cute loafers! My feet hurt from heels and I'm tired of wearing flip flops everyday during the summer.

I'm always afraid they may look a bit boring (so take inspiration from the girls above!) .... here are two I'm looking at with a bit of a funky twist ....

Moroccan Home

Elle Decor is featured this beautiful home on their website yesterday. The home near Marrakech belongs to fashion designer Liza Bruce and artist Nicholas Alvis Vega. Love all the colors and artifacts from around the world. The pool doesn't look bad either ....
