Book It: The Fashion File

Mad Men may be over for now (what did you all think of Sunday’s finale?), but the sartorial wonder of that show will continue to play over and over in my mind. If you, too, can’t get enough of the fabulous wardrobe of the Mad Men cast then this is the book for you: The Fashion File. Written by Mad Men‘s costume designer Janie Bryant, the book offers us a peek inside the show’s dressing room and lets us in on the design process for each of the characters’ looks. Bryant also offers helpful tips on where to snatch the best vintage clothing and accessories. The book doesn’t just focus on the show’s leading ladies, there’s also a section dedicated to the style secrets of Don Draper (yes, please).

Tastemaker: Elizabeth Showers

We asked one of our favorite jewelry designers, Elizabeth Showers, about her current favorite local spots and fall favorites. Elizabeth unveiled that her passion for jewelry came at age 5, sitting with her grandmother at the kitchen table. Her mother, interior decorator Jan Showers, was another inspiration. The duo have an eye for color and design that has set them apart in the creative world. Elizabeth is also excited to unveil her 2010 Fall/Holiday collections online, as well as in luxury stores across the nation — what do you love?

Editorial: Vogue UK November 2010

The summer months may be long gone but that doesn’t mean we can’t head to the beach! Vogue UK did just that in their November issue featuring blonde bombshell Lara Stone in the “Brighton Rocks” editorial. Photographed by Alasdair McLellan, Stone looks every bit the part of a vintage beauty.

NARS Vintage

The transition from summer to fall brings lots of changes to one’s look, including the switch from those bright, beachy nail polishes to richer, darker lacquers. Good thing NARS has just launched their limited edition Vintage Nail Polish Collection. The 5 metallic lacquers, which range in color from a deep navy to an army green to an icy blue, are named after iconic films: Full Metal Jacket, Zulu, Midnight Express, King Kong and MASH. Perfect for fall! The names aren’t the only vintage thing about the lacquers, the polishes themselves are originally from the ’90s and have been resurrected from the NARS archives (wouldn’t you love to see what’s in their “archives”?) for a limited run. Oldies but goodies!

Your shoes (especially your suede ones) really take a beating when it comes to rainy days, and wellies are certainly a fashionable solution. They’re super chic and functional too! I own a pair of Hunter wellies and absolutely love them. Here are some of my other favorite options:
