Paper Eyelashes

New trend that has been seen on the runway is now available for purchase. PAPERSELF has a line of paper eyelashes ...
Inspired by the art of Chinese paper-cutting, Eyelashes blend an element of traditional culture with contemporary design.
Intricately cut and delicately pretty, Eyelashes are now available in 11 styles, each infused with symbolic meaning rooted in Chinese culture.

They are incredibly detailed and crafted beautifully. I imagine many DYI lashes will be inspired from these.

Mad Men Fashion

My last post was about the Mad Men inspired clothing line at Banana Republic. I am completely infatuated with the show Mad Men and watch it in marathons. It begins in 1959 and progresses into the early 60's where American culture was drastically changing socially and politically. The nuclear family and the baby boom generation and this general facade of perfection was beginning to slip. My parents were born around the time where Mad Men takes place so I am intrigued with how the way the were raised and what was going on in the country is so entirely different from today.  I have always been in love with early 60's style from the structured bags, the silhouettes, broaches hats, gloves to the big hair. The show captures the look more authentically than any other movie or show I have seen. I thought I had to do a tribute to the style of the show. Below are some of my favorite looks.

Banana Republic Mad Men Collection

I have become a devoted Mad Men watcher and an even bigger fan of the style of the early 60's. The show, stylistically, is so delicious and incredibly accurate style-wise. Mad Men has made quite the fashion statement and has teamed up with Banana Republic to create a fashion line of Mad Men inspired clothes. Here are some of the looks now available.
