Mad Men style – clothing unfortunately

If you love Mad Men, you will love TLO’s (Project Rungay blog) posts on the Mad Men episodes and the styles that all the female characters wear. They do a fantastic job and I’d love to dissect the interiors as well, but feel a bit lacking in knowledge (but I’m still working on it).  So, if you haven’t checked it out – do! It’s a long series, so go back and read from the beginning (also a nice refresher on what happened over the last several seasons).

However , they also posted this cool Vogue Series (in case you haven’t noticed, Mid-century is a big deal right now) and so here’s some more neat current spins on 50’s fashion.

For those of you who are just into the 50’s house thing, you may enjoy the flickr world of 50’s illustrations. I’m not sure if these are all the available groups out there,

Retro Roadtrip: The Historic Route 66 Motel, Tucumcari, NM

The Historic Route 66 motel was built in the International Style that was enormously popular in the mid 20th Century.  In typical Palm Springs fashion, each room except the suites feature curtain wall, floor to ceiling windows. You can just see Don and Megan Draper pull up out front for a 60’s weekend away! The lobby is probably one of the most distinctive mid-century modern (MCM) public spaces in any small economy motel built during

Route 66 – Around the Web

In another one of our attempts to save you looking for all the best resources. I thought I’d give you links to my new (or at least newly renewed) passion of Route 66. Because of publicity, movies like “Cars” and other ways of generating awareness, Route 66 is one of the best “known” preservation efforts centered around mid-Century. From Wikipedia: U.S. Route 66 (also known as the Will Rogers Highway and colloquially known as the
