Mad Men Week Fail

Clearly, I have dropped the ball on Mad Men week! I had all these outfits planned, and then my batteries for my camera died....and I couldn't find the charger for them! So next week I shall get a new one and have a nice photoshoot of all the sweet outfits I put together.

I've definitely still been watching the first season and LOVING it. It's almost better the second time around. :)

Here are some lovely pictures I've gathered this week!

  I adore this office! Perfectly organized, light and pretty.
Cute initial necklace! I want.

I'm a big believe in the power of lists. This is a great one!

Adorable :)

Braided buns atop ones head are beautiful

Bridget Bardot. Hair-spiration

I love everything about this series of photographs....

I need a sweet backpack like this one.

This is the colour of purple I want my bouquet flowers. I love Irises!

To get: High waist jeans and gray blazer.

Mad Men Week Day 2+3

I have been rediscovering the awesomenss that is Mad Men this week, re-watching the first season.
I have also been dressing up from that time as I go. Unfortunately I had some technical difficulties while uploading out fit pictures, they all go deleted! :/ So I'm going to have to have a small photo shoot tonight to make up for yesterday and today's pictures! That sounds like fun :)


As you may know, we've decided to have our wedding here in Victoria. I'm pretty excited now about having a real homemade wedding! My bridesmaid Andrea and I are going to check out the first location today! Here are some pictures I've found as inspirations for the big day!
 Idea for wedding favour! We are both DJs after all....
 I LOVE these lanterns in lieu of flowers! Modern and they catch the light!

 I love the white wedding idea. My wedding colour is gold. I would love for everything to be gold and white!

 Beautiful Cake!

 Typewriter guest book! :o

 I wanted to have a "costume change" before the late night party, into something short and sexy like this. I'll be wearing my veil still for sure!

Mad Men Week: Day 1

 Last night I set out some outfits for Mad Men Week :) I love putting outfits together all on one hanger, including jewelery!

    This morning was an early one, I woke up at 6:30am and saw rain out my window (surprise surprise!). I resisted the urge to put one tights and a v-neck and put on my first Mad Men outfit of the week. A beige and white, floral, empire waist sun dress with built in crinoline. The dress by itself isn't very flattering and add 10 pounds to my hips in puffiness. But paired with a red sweater and some accessories, it's not so bad. I guess I'm just used wearing more stream lined clothing. I feel like I should be wearing a wide load sign on my back. LOL


    After dragging my ass out of bed, getting dressed up, and 2 buses later.... I get to work at the Twin's house and remember that they were on vacation and I didn't have to work today. DOH! This is me smiling while waiting for the bus home. Now my day holds so much possibility! I headed home, after a quick Tim Hortin's stop, and got to blogging while watching more Mad Men. I also took a bunch of pictures, check them out below....
