Today is National Lipstick Day. How fabulous is that! I can’t think of any other make up item that can brighten your day let alone your smile in one fell swoop. Ohhhhh how we love a great shade of lipstick.

Some interesting facts about lipstick…

1. Your lips are 100 times more sensitive than your fingers.
2. 40 percent of women wish they had softer lips.
3. Guerlain invented the first lipstick in a tube in 1870, called “Ne m’oubliez pas,” or “Forget Me Not” in French. Chic.
4. People buy the most lipstick in Miami, Portland, Ore., and Atlanta.
5. There has been a 50 percent increase in “nude lipstick” searches on Amazon this month.

The Banana has gone MAD…Again!

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

Well…well…well…it looks like the Banana (as in Republic) has gone Mad again. Quite frankly I feel like someone is toying with my Mad Men emotions. Why you ask?? Mad Men-(which P.S. by the way) is my FAVORITE TV show was originally set to air Season 5 this summer. But …and this is a very big but- due to a contract snafu between the AMC network and Mad Men creator Mathew Weiner…season 5 has been pushed back to air “sometime” in early 2012. Way.y.y.y. before all this legal jostling began, Mad Men costume designer Janie Bryant partnered with the peeps at Banana Republic, to create a second collection of “Mad Men Inspired” clothing. to coincide with the original season 5 premiere in August. Hence it is almost August…and YES we have a collection of very fabulous Mad Men inspired clothing (approximately 65 pieces)”ready to sell” but without the Season 5 premiere.  So…o.o. if you need a little Mad Men Fix to tide you over until (whenever they decide to finally air MM Season 5)  …check out the collection in early August at all Banana Republic stores and online.

Mad Men Finale….

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

The season finale of Mad Men is tonight. I must confess dear Glamour Girls that I hedge on being a bit obsessed with the series. It’s kind of like my husbands obsession with “anything tennis” times 10.  I am (as they say) a bit “mad” for Mad Men. I L.O.V.E. Mad Men and I ask: How couldn’t one be? When you stop and think about the show it has every component necessary for a true Glamour Girl obsession.

The first component that you simply can’t ignore is dashing leading man Don Draper. Draper played by Jon Hamm is the personification of Hollywood’s Leading Men hearkening back to the Golden Age of Cinema. (Think Clark Gable-but better and without bad breath-Clark Gable had false teeth and notorious mouth odor. But I digress).  Breathtakingly handsome, tortured and troubled, yet interesting and  intelligent, Don Draper deals with dilemmas “head on” without a wrinkle in his perfectly pressed suits. Mathew Weiner (Creator and Executive Producer) weaves a tale with more twists and turns in the storyline than an Elvis performance of “All Shook Up.”  

Finally- there is the costume design created by Janie Bryant. The clothing is almost a story line unto itself, bringing to life characters that we understand a bit better by what and how they wear their clothing. Think about it. Would Joan really be sexy Joan sashshaing around the office if she was dressed in a circle skirt and puffy sleeves instead of the tighter than spandex pencil skirts and pointy bras? Perfectly put together and neatly intact the clothing only emphasis how “messy” the lives of the characters truly are underneath it all.  With the finale of season four upon us, we will be left waiting in anticipation for answers to our questions: What will happen to Sterling, Cooper, Draper Price, …Joan and her marriage,Betty and Peggy and the rest of the characters. Before we hit our “OFF” button on the remote, I anticipate that Glamour Girls everywhere will be left wondering the most important question of all…

What was she (insert character and outfit here) wearing???

 Because let’s face it, no matter how handsome a leading man, story line, setting or season, our Finale moment of Glamour Girl Recall shall involve something concerning clothing.

It’s always about the clothing…isn’t it!

A Sudden Craving for Mad Men Style!

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

Last night the AMC show Mad Men returned to the airwaves. I look forward to Mad Men, the way most children countdown to Christmas-(except instead of gifts under the tree brought by Santa, I await the arrival of the most glamorous 1960’s fashion and uber stylish settings). It’s the very best type of eye candy-you can look and look and look at all the beautiful clothing and never gain a pound. Only problem is-after the show is over, you have an overwhelming  urge to go vintage clothing shopping.

Mad Men Going Mainstream!

Category: Fashion

If your a fan of Mad Men and L.O.V.E. everything… and I do mean everything about the series (story line, 1960’s period setting, and of course the FASHION!!!) these next two dates are going to be very…very important for you to write down. Pens Ready???? Here we go: July 25th –Mad Men Season 4 returns to the airwaves… (check AMC local times and listings) and September 29-THE DAY when  Janie Bryant debuts her line of “Mad Men” inspired fashion items  aptly named “Mod” by Janie Bryant for QVC including 20 pieces of clothing and 15 pieces of Jewelry…

I know! It almost seems too good to be true. Janie Bryant is the  tiny, petite and adorable Mad Men stylist/costume designer-with a fantastic flair for vintage fashion that will make you yearn for the shapely, feminine  silhouettes of the  60’s. The best news of all is that Janie and QVC have  priced the entire line starting at $28.00, and topping out at a mere-$138.00.

I dare say….grab your remote and get ready –it’s going to be a MAD..Mod line!
