Mad Men Yourself

On the theme of Mad Men, Jo I don’t know if this beats your Mad Men Barbie dolls (can anything really beat Mad Men Barbie dolls?), but this is pretty awesome and a fun new way to procrastinate –!

Here’s me in the Mad Men world, what do you think? I wanted to do you, Jo, but I think you will want to Mad Men yourself. It’s fun to do, great animation!

And here’s Juani (for those that don’t know, that’s my dance partner, the dashing Argentinian Juan Villafane):

Hahaha, what fun!! Jo and Alice, you have to do yourselves and post it up!!! And anyone else in the swing scene you can think of!

Taking Fashion Inspiration from Dolls

I wasted a whole lot of time on this doll blog, so that you don’t have to! Check out these retro doll fashions, can you believe it? The downside is, you can’t buy any of these outfits… you know, unless you’re 6″ tall.  I’d wear all of these outfits! If anyone out there is a wizz with a sewing machine and wants to recreate one of these for me, just let me know!!

Top Picks: Sonia Rykiel Spring 2010 Ready-to-Wear Collection


Ahh, so much to love in this one. Clingy striped sweaters, waist belts, pencil skirts, retro disc fascinators, crystal-covered cats eye glasses, seamed Cuban heel stockings (even in purple!) and rhinestone-covered strappy platform heels. But most of all – happy, laughing, smiling, dancing models! How wonderful.
