Kiernan Shipka

Kiernan Shipka is just about as darling as they come. Featured here in The Coveteur (old news, I know), the actress who plays Sally on Mad Men talks about her love of organization, design and ballet. {Please, tell me, Kiernan, that you also organize your closet by color! Then I’ll know we’re true BFFs.}

You’ll have to pop over and read the full Coveteur interview with Miss Shipka, where she shares some of her original designs. Yes, she’s a designer too! All by the age of eleven!

Nothing is more Richmond than a bowtie! Love these ideas that inspire far more than the groom’s attire.
