i spy: smartly dressed women, mid century graphics and a glowing opera house

What's inspiring me lately?  Smartly-dressed women of the past and present, mid century graphic design, gorgeous old opera houses, and the evolution of Don and Peggy.  (And yes, I'm still pining to return to Germany and Austria!)  See more on my Tumblr and Pinterest.

*On the street...Piazza del Duomo, Milan.  I feel like I could wear this outfit every day of my life and be perfectly happy. | The Sartorialist
*Hungarian-English tourist dictionary, 1964. | Jell-O Biafra Says
*Fiona, Helsinki Street Style.  A neo film noir vamp! | Hel-Looks
*Two beautiful screenshots from one of the last episodes of the first half of the last season (ugh) of Mad Men.  I just started re-watching the series from the beginning, something I highly recommend to fellow fans of the show.  A lot has happened to these two characters, and it's been easy to forget all the crap that Peggy had to put up with as a young secretary in 1960.  (Seriously.  Go back and watch the first few episodes if nothing else.)  It's been nice to see these two working together again, and to see Don full of both pride and admiration for her. | source appears to have removed her original post, but it was the Tumblr Omiero
