Hello there.

It's nice to meet you.

I'm Jessica.

Once upon a time, I wrote a lot on this blog.

Now, not so much. But I haven't quite gotten around to totally delete it from the internet just yet. So, here it remains, collecting dust. 

So if you've ended up here, hello and welcome. I still tweet from time to time and pin (see above) and if you want to see what I do, click on the giant box below that says VIEW MY WORK.

TTFN, y'all.

Estee Lauder Mad Men Collection

The launch of this limited-edition duo is obviously timed perfectly to sync with the start of season 5 of Mad Men (March 25th).

The lipstick ($25) in Cherry and creme rouge ($40) in Evening Rose are pretty classic colors and the packaging is perfectly '60s... so much so that I swear I've seen identical items on my grandmother's dressing table or (not to be too morbid) and have picked up at recent estate sales. From the pattern on the boxes (actually inspired by EL packaging from the '60s) to the heavy-looking, metallic, fluted compact and lipstick tube, the tiniest details (blue faux-jewel clasp) are quite true to the era's aesthetic. 

Paying $40 for a blush is, well, not really something I do but I might if that lucious compact it comes in is reusable.

It's available online and at Bloomingdales starting in March.

And here's the trailer for the new season... ex-ci-ting!
