I'm completely in love with Louis Vuitton's full skirts and Prada's take on prints. When I was in the city I saw this incredible high wasted leather skirt while shopping in a high end vintage store and I cannot stop thinking about it. Louis V's structured skirts remind me so much of it and I would kill to have one for myself. We can see Betty's character in every one of these pieces and I can imagine her wearing them in a modern setting. Every piece of both collections is sophisticated but definitely has a sense of mystery and daringness. The collections are very fall/ winter, very elegant and seem to have a story in need of telling. It goes much deeper than beautiful fabrics; much like the story of Betty in Mad Men.
I picked up some fabric from a textile shop in the middle of nowhere so that (when I learn how to sew) I can make myself a big, high-wasted, full length skirt. It's this great pale pink and will have an exposed zipper detail.

Also, get your hands on the third season of Mad Men. Like the first two, its completely addictive with a fantastic story line and, as always, costumes to die for.
