I've been seriously negligent with this blog lately, and I hate it. Last week the hardwood floors in my apartment were replaced, and now my life is very distressed. But, I will be painting my bedroom shortly and putting some hard work into making my apartment livable. My theory is that once my home is in order the rest will fall in place. I have a lot to share, but I just need to get this apartment in order...stay tuned! xoxo-Kristal

I just recently read Lauren Bacall's autobiography "All By Myself," and it was fabulous. Very sad at times, but good. My favorite part was anything about her and Bogie, the love that they had transmitted through all sorts of mediums-print, film, and written word in the book's case. It was nice to read and heartbreaking at the same time. I suggest it highly.

These lovely ladies (courtesy of the sartorialist) are proving a belief of mine, that nothing is better than a plain white tee shirt. I love the girl on top with her red lips, and the girl below with her rolled sleeves and dress on top.
I actually get to wear this sucker to work. I am a lucky lucky girl. The coolest detail is missing from the picture though, an exposed zipper. On a straighter body this wears like a shift, but on a breasts-waist-hips body it is very fitted. I didn't want to say Mad Men, but it is sooo Joan Holloway.

Etsy and both of these pieces are very reasonably priced ($10 for the vampire bites and $15 for the slit throat). Great gift ideas if you ask me. Oh, and if you have skills to make this, send one my way! The link to the Etsy shop is below.
