China Glaze Fall 2014 – All Aboard

When I think of train travel, I immediately picture the episode of Sex and The City where Carrie and Samantha venture cross country with visions of luxurious sleeper compartments and glamorous bar car parties that are quickly squashed by the reality of today’s rail system.

Though, like a scene out of 50s movie, the China Glaze All Aboard collection hearkens back to a more elegant time for the rails, when people dressed for travel and the possibility of meeting your Cary Grant on board was alive and well.
