The Coveteur recently profiled the closet and home of Kiernan Shipka, better known as Mad Men‘s Sally Draper. The precocious tween dresses a lot like her TV counterpart–favoring early ’60s Peter Pan-collared girly silhouettes from a Portuguese brand called Papo d’ Anjo. But when she’s not wearing Papo d’Anjo (which is hardly ever, it seems), she makes her own dresses (see above, left).
“This dress is actually an original design of mine,” Shipka told the Coveteur. “I love the color and the fabric, which is a raw silk taffeta. I spent days going through all the fabric shops in downtown LA to find this fabric… I made many changes to the dress along the way. It took about a year to finish. It turned out great!” We agree. Shipka has already got her own signature style down pat–do we smell another actress-turned-designer?
In the very least, she seems organized enough to take on any task–if her closet is any indication. “I organize things by clothing type and by season,” she told the site. “My dresses are together, as well as my skirts, hats, jackets, tops, scarfs, sweaters, and shoes! I hate a messy closet. I totally freak out when my closet is messy and I can’t find anything…I split my clothes into two closets according to seasons. Though I have to go to the guest room to pull my fall and winter items, it’s still much easier than cramming all my clothes together in my one closet. I love “space” in between hanging clothes.” Kiernan, if you aren’t busy filming could you come by and organize my closet?
