|January Jones in Mad Men|
|Designer Janie Bryant with Emmy|
Emmy-nominated Designer, Janie Bryant, who has designed a "Mad Men" collection for Banana Republic has authored a book, "The Fashion File," which details developing one's own style.
One of the highlights of the book has tips on styling with vintage clothing- Ms. Bryant recommends investing in one high-quality vintage clothing piece, and building a look around it. The piece could be a fine piece of vintage jewelry; a vintage accessory, such as a Pucci Scarf or a Lanvin Purse; or a vintage Yves Saint Lauren Blazer. Any of these items could be used throughout an entire season, or if you live in a resort community such as ours in Palm Springs, could be worn all year long. Ms. Bryant furthers her comments, warning that a head-to-toe vintage look can be costume-y, and may be off-putting for the office or a cocktail party. Obviously, she's never been to a poolside party in Palm Springs redolent with vintage clothing, and guests dressed to the nines! Don't forget, if you're looking for vintage pieces to add to your collection, make Deja Vu Vintage your stop in Palm Springs for a whole lot of fabulous!
