Icons of Style: A Mad Men Display
Even though this display is over, I wanted to share a few snaps I took of it. The Icons of Style exhibition was in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, and I managed to catch it on the last day in Sydney. I love the costumes from Mad Men of course, and seeing some of them up close was such an eye-opener (January Jones = tiny). It was amazing seeing the signs of age, wear, frays, etc that went with all of these clothes, get a feel for the size of the actors, etc. I especially love the white, yellow and blue chiffon dress Betty wore. The chiffon had pulls, frays, marks. You could see she really spent some time in this.

P.S. I know you're like, where the hell have you gone lately... did you just vanish? The truth is it's just been a little bit of this, and a lotta that. I'm working on a rather time consuming, fun, challenging and slightly crazy personal project lately that's taking a lot of my energy but we're not talking about it yet. Maybe in a few months. Do I seem mean telling you that? Probably, and no, I'm not opening a brick and mortar store, launching a new business or having a baby. I hope that narrows down the options for you ;) In the meanwhile I've also had a little staycation with my mum's side of the family. Life is sometimes like that. But the Love Vintage fair is this weekend, so keep an eye out for lots of pics on Monday!
