Vintage make-up ad, 1938
This lovely lipstick advertisment  for Tattoo, a new line packaged in a stunning tube engraved with an art deco hula girl. "And how his heart will pound," when he comes home from work and gets a peek at your lips and you tell him the brand is "tattoo."

Repro Retro ala Mad Men

These dresses are sure to bring out the inner bombshell in anybody, they sure worked for Mad Men's own Joan Holloway. Prices range from $125-$140 in ready made sizes and tailored sizes are offered. Maybe, just maybe this could be the dress to land you that promotion you have been working so hard for.

How would these outfits go over in your office space? What do you think of these Mad Men replicas, would you dare wear it? Are these dresses to costume like for your taste or right on the money?

A stitch in time

"Look hun, what do you think? I made it out of the drapes." Her fabric choice might not be my cup of tea, but that sewing machine sure sets my heart a pitter pattering.

Nothing better to brighten up those dark and gloomy winter days then a cheery colored vintage sewing machine to team up with. It's safe to say we all can lose inspiration and patience at times but with a machine as cute as one of these, I dont think I could ever get discouraged again!
