Lela Mod

DSC03171

I think most of us crave Betty Draper’s style. The moment I saw Lela Rose’s short sleeved dress with checkered paint strokes, I immediately remembered Betty. The dress had qualities of early 60’s fashion with a modern twist: the delicate details, the always subtle silhouette, and the focus on a defined waist. Lela Rose’s dress from her cruise line is a definite wardrobe staple that you can wear time and again.

Just make sure you don’t go for the whole 60′s look of a tight hair bun, pearls, and bright red lipstick to avoid looking like you’re going to a costume party as Betty.

Lela Rose’s cruise line is now available at AlOthman.

Vol de Jour by Karl Lagerfield

Vol de Jour by Karl Lagerfield

Vol de Jour is a short film by Karl Lagerfeldstarring Lara Stone and Baptiste Giabiconi for the Chanel Spring Summer 2010 Pre-Collection. Although the black & white film has no dialogue, the soundtrack is very 1930’s inspired. It’s quite interesting to see Lagerfield venturing into the world of film and directing.
