What I Wore to Brunch

These photos are from a couple weeks ago when a few friends and I went to Brooklyn Star for delicious delicious brunch (two-word emphasis!). If you haven't been there, they have the best 'melt in your mouth' biscuits I have ever had in my entire life, not to mention amazing chicken fried steak (I'm making myself hungry just typing this..). Apparently chicken fried steak is called "country fried steak" here in NYC and I had a weird time explaining that it was the same thing when I kept saying the wrong word.

My friend Dakota looked perfectly adorable in her 1960's attire and posed with me in front of this colorful sails mural. I wore my hat from our adventures at Another Man's Treasure and an Anthropologie dress that has served me well for many occasions. I love that it's actually really similar to a dress Elizabeth Moss/Peggy wears in some of the Mad Men promos

What I Wore:
Dress: Anthropologie
Sweater: Vintage
Hat: Vintage via Another Man's Treasure
Necklace: Forever 21
Tights: Hue
Shoes: H&M

Inspiration of the Week: "All At Once, One Day, It's Spring"

In my social media research for one of the designers of NewYorkDress (the company I currently blog for), I came across the tumblr for designer Lela Rose. It's a new tumblr and although they start off relatively boring, it's recently become quite a nice curation of pretty images. Here are a few that I fell in love with and felt were seasonably-appropriate to share. 

Audrey Hepburn on this month's Vanity Fair. 
This particular photo stuck me for some reason. Audrey just looks so quaint and classic. 
It's a perfect snapshot moment. 
She's obviously always been glamerous, but I'm gaining a recent fascination with Elizabeth Taylor and her roller coaster life. She was quite a woman!

My Life in Instagram: Another Man's Treasure

Here is my instagram follow-up from my time at Another Man's Treasure and a sneak peak at some of the items in their amazing showroom. 

I bought this broach above and am in LOVE with this tapestry bag!

Shop Showcase: Another Man's Treasure

My friend Dakota recently told me about a fabulous vintage shop in Jersey City. I'd only ever driven through Jersey so I was excited to make the trek out there. Turns out, it wasn't much of a trek! Jersey was pretty much just a hop, skip away from Brooklyn. People were incredibly friendly and I kept asking myself if we were actually in the South. 

We shortly arrived at our destination: Another Man's Treasure. The shop was fantastic, perfectly detailed with racks and racks of lovely clothes, and the owner and sales assistant were beyond friendly. The highlight of the trip had to be when the owner drove us down the street to her showroom to show us the real treasures. It was a like a small museum of fantastical  vintage and felt like such a privilege to see. Overall, we had an amazing time and it was certainly an outing I won't soon forget!

 While I was looking around, I found this incredible purse.
 It matched my dress SO perfectly!
 I have a slight obsession with fancy nighties. 
 Dreamy pastel jewelry
 I ended up buying this hat and am wearing it as we speak. 
I love the very Joan-esque ensemble from the girl who worked there!

Links I Love

I decided to start a new feature appropriately titled "Links I Love" since I constantly come across amazing things via inter-web.  I also created a new page for blog links and a page for online shops if you're looking for recommendations. The pages are still a work in progress, but currently, you can check them out for favorite bloggers of the moment and the few places I shop online. 

For now, enjoy my favorite links this week!

1. Scathingly Brillant is currently dressing as her favorite Disney princesses and, of course, putting her own adorable spin on it. Her Snow White look is absolutely charming!

Mad Men's Swinging Sixties Style

Sweet and Sassy Peggy Olson

The year is 1968. Mad Men season 6 begins tonight and in honor of that, here are a few photos that show off this season's swinging style. The late 60's are not necessarily my favorite time period only because they have such hippie connotations, but that's really only one part of the era's amazing style. While I'm sure Don will come across some fringe-wearing hippies, for now, I'm happy to see each of the Mad Men ladies dressed to perfection in mod silhouettes, pretty prints and lady-like ruffles. I would wear every single one of their gorgeous looks! 

The men look dapper as usual. There are a few small wardrobe changes, but they're obviously not as prominant. For AMAZING in-depth costume analysis and general episode reviews, be sure and check out Tom and Lorenzo's blog! I promise, you will not be dissapointed.
