Kittens, it’s cold outside!
So many layers, so little time to pile them all on (and still keep a shred of chicness as I dash out the door). My must-have for these frosty, February days? A fabulous fuzzy or (faux) fur hat. A Zhivago-esque topper is all you need to turn up the heat and channel your inner lynx, lovelies.
It’s time to face those temps in the twenties, teens & tweens ~ here’s a little inspiration from some style-savvy darlings…
Jessica (& Honor)
…and (mini) me.
Don’t you feel warmer already?

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery ~ but I say, why try to be somebody else? Especially when, as the good Dr. S points out, “There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” That is pretty flippin’ fantastic if you ask moi! Stop wishing you were this or that and start swinging from the chandelier and toasting your “one & only-ness”!
There’s no harm in channeling your style icons for inspiration ~ but make the look your own! As any true original knows, personal style is the bee’s knees and (unless you’re an identical twin) copycats are never in vogue! But these kittens are pretty cute…
You know what else is très cliché? Fakes. Fakes are never in fashion. Just ask Manti T’eo. Or that cute well-meaning Jan Brady ~“His name is George, George….Glass.”
Jan gets points for creativity with her fake boyfriend, but it’s too bad she didn’t realize how groovy she was. Life is too short to waste pretending to be something you’re not!

It’s freezing outside today, ladies ~ the perfect time for toasty hats and coats!
Luckily we have Don to keep us warm! Yes, it’s official, darlings ~ our date with Don begins on April 7th! And in my pretty lil’ opinion, he is quel worth the wait. Love this sunny, soaking-up-the-sun snap of he and his Zou Bisou Bisou beach bunny wife in Hawaii (circa the highly anticipated Season Six). Mrs. D sure knows how to rock a Pucci-esque bikini and island-y cocktail! Obvi a prerequisite for any Wife of Don.
Also striking my color fancy today? The bright rainbow hues of these pretty pencils (a gift from a style-savvy and all around spectacular friend).
These neon pencils will brighten up any project or to-do list! Perhaps Joanie should purchase some for the creatives at Sterling, Cooper, Draper, Pryce…

Even Sir Anthony Strallan knows flirting is always in style.
Have a jolly weekend, darlings! Bat those eyelashes. Wink!

“Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
Mix and a-mingle in the jinglin’ feet
That’s the jingle bell rock…” ~Jingle Bell Rock
