Two years ago, I had a pair. Like any leggings, tights, etc. it has a life span of one season. Got them at Nordstrom for like $5 (sale). Do I miss them. Saw a pair of Wolfords but it is a hefty tag of $62. ASOS has the same Wolfords for $57 but this here is a steal! RomWe for $9.90.
I love winter... for the fact that I can wear black everyday! Not that I can't in the summer but black in winter is more appropriate don't you think?
Layers of pearls
Tried to replicate the faux hawk but it is quite difficult for stubborn, coarse hair. Plus, the sides are long on my head compared to the pic. below. Not ready to take the plunge and shave it off yet... YET.
Like Chevrolet, American designers too have made their own revolution in the world of fashion. Some of the most revolutionary contributors to today's style are seen in today's The Look:

Who said we are too old to dress up? Check out this clever costume... Most of us have white pants, dress shirts, black belt, a bow tie (may be) and black shoes. All you need are the finishing touches....
Sephora by OPI nail + Sally Hansen Nail Pen in black
Got the fever to do something different with the nails. Most nail salons won't do this for you because it takes too long. So, DIY! No problem, it was much easier than first thought... thanks to the Sally Hansen Nail Pen. You can purchase the pen at any drugstore near you. They have lots of colors to choose from too.
To help set the colors in sooner so you don't ruin your hard work, get this:
Sephora by OPI Nail Drying Drops. This stuff is the best! $14.
Here is a quick sneak peak but go to the source to view the full collection, here: H&M
Love the color scheme on this dress. It reminds me of a Chinese Qipao dress worn in Shanghai.
I can see Rihanna in the black dress above. So simple and classic... the perfect LBD for your closet. And the gold hardware, forget about it!! Va-va-voom!
The idea of contrasting patterns/designs of the above dress is pretty cool. Uh... did anyone notice the color-pattern scheme? Does it remind you of any dress? Like the one J-Lo worn a few years back... the deep v-neck one? Yeah... mm hmm.
Um... Helloooo! New Years Eve dress anyone? Yes, please. This dress is great. Purple is my favorite color. This dress has the right combinations. I just want to try it on and see the material before I fully decide if this will be my NYE dress.
After taking a way too long of a break... I'm back!
With that, my apologies. For those of you who frequented Not Made to Measure and wondered why Mad Men Style was up for so long and nothing new has been posted... well, my bad. Just been too busy and not making enough effort. And so... here we go!
Fall is here! It is so beautiful in Oregon right now. Beautiful foliage of reds, yellows, oranges and green! What better way to help celebrate but to embrace it with complementary colors. Today we have:
Took a break....a VERY LONG break! But I'm back and I miss you Not Made to Measure.
Here's a little bit of weird... how's this for eye frames. This hole in a wall optical shop has the coolest frames and displays in Portland. They have really unique frames.. like this one. It's been in business since 1955. Since I'm in the market for a new pair of eye wear, Hendrix I'm coming to you!
