Come inside my world full of antique perfume bottles, heart shaped sunglasses, Mad Men inspired fashion and décor and a love for Old Hollywood. Beyond all the glitter and glamour of yesteryear I want to capture real life in poetic prose whether it's tree-lined avenues that stir up nostalgia, a beautiful roof top coffee shop or the pain and hurt that lies behind all the glitz and style of a glossy photograph.
Mad Men was my favorite show. I love the characters in all their madness and depth. I loved the story line, the history and of course the fashion. Whether it was Betty Draper's feminine and sweet dresses with full skirts or Megan's California bohemian style - I swooned over the retro fashions.
Whether you are looking for a last minute Valentine's day dress or a unique gift, I curated a vintage and vintage inspired gift guide for you.
Lilly Pulitizer was born into wealth and created a fashion line that fit the famous and rich Palm Beach socialites she knew. Vibrant, tropical prints made her clothing line stand out.
