The Crave: Don Draper!

Woe is me! Woe is me! Mad Men postponed for an entire season.  Gosh darn A&E, disputing over commercial time with the creator/writer.  Who needs commercials? That's why I have DVR! 

Nevertheless, this show is probably one of the best show on T.V. today.  The detail is frighteningly real... so real some can't even watch it because it just shows how demeaning women were treated back in the day.  But boy do I like the minibar in the offices... why did that rule go away?  If you haven't seen this then you better get Netflix and start catching up!

Woe is me! Mad Men, please return soon.  It wouldn't be a complete summer without you!!  And Don Draper, you are sexy!!!!

The Looks: Blooming pink petals maxi dress

A great end to the week: flats and maxi dress.  There's nothing like a flowing flora maxi dress on a humid day.  Finally! Relaxation.

The Looks:

Banana Republic maxi dress
Weave basket purse from Thailand
Ray Ban cat eye sunglasses
BP from Nordstrom flats

The Looks: 60's Mod & Fancy Cars

It was a night of be remembered. As part of the Young Society of the Portland Art Museum, I was invited to attend a private tour 16 automobile wonders.  Some of these cars are very rare!  My favorite? The Bugatti and the Mercedes SLR300.  If someone proposed to me with a Bugatti I would say yes right away... yes, I would.  

The evening was fun filled starting out at the Oregon Historical Society for wine and light fare.  We saw Formula One cars that had a direct link to Oregon.  Did you know that the F1 engine used to be in the back until an Oregonian decided to move them to the front? By doing so, it increase the speed of the vehicle on the tracks!  And guess this... the man who did this is still alive and kicking in Oregon!

Check out my full post of the Allure of the Automobile exhibit running now at the Portland Art Museum, one of two museum in the United States to be show casing these rare cars.

The Looks:

ASOS pleated blue dress
Cole Hans clutch
Yves Saint Laurent shoes

The Music: Racks by YC Feat. Future

It's a good bumping song for one of those nights like tonight.  Racks on racks on racks!
