The Estate of Things

NYE 2012

Inching ever so close to 2013. That sounds like the future doesn’t it—2013.

In the 80s, if you would’ve told me that we wouldn’t be using hover-boards by 2013 I probably wouldn’t have believed you.

We have big plans tonight, Mad Men party with Betsy!

This is the dress I last minute ordered while I had the flu from this very nice Etsy seller.

I practiced my winged eyeliner last night, thanks to this blogger for some tips. Although I have to say the tape trick didn’t really work for me, I just freehand the wing.

Very excited to be ringing in the New Year with my friend once again. Happy New Year everyone!

 

Mad Men Bathroom

by Sarah on September 20, 2011, no comments

Dan and I just finished watching all four seasons of Mad Men last week (tear), I’ve read that it isn’t set to return until March 2012. We are hopelessly addicted, its a fantastic television show. Watch it– you won’t be sorry.

There are a few things I like about the Mad Men sets like the indigo blue walls in the Draper’s formal living room, scores of tall ceramic table lamps and the colorful inspiration boards in the creative department at Sterling Cooper Draper Price.

During an episode in Season 4, Don seeks refuge from another random bedmate in his apartment bathroom. See there he is above, with a wicked hangover and wondering what the hell he’s doing with his life.

Somewhere in between my feelings of disgust and sympathy for Don, the bathroom caught my attention because in an instant I saw pre-war classic design and a masculine flair. So naturally I thought I’d like to create my own rendition of Draper’s apartment bath.

And bingo…
