tumblr overlap.


lost in a moment from dennis wheatley on Vimeo.

This video is really lovely.

"red red sun peaking through the cracks in the curtains,
i can’t take it today and i won’t take it tomorrow,
so i’m gonna hide, i’m gonna hide,
i can’t see no good, can’t see no good in leaving,
i won’t see that face again and you won’t see this face again,
why couldn’t we just get along?
why couldn’t we just get along?
why couldn’t we just get along?"


I love Ivana's two new songs, Red Red Sun and Always Tell the Truth. You can download them here and here.

omg shoes.



Hey dollfaces,

I FINALLY got around to selling my stuff. Well, just some shoes for now. But sometime soon I really will be putting up all kinds of clothes on eBay, promise! First, I'm selling these Devotte booties through Lulu. Look for them here.

i am obsessed with craigslist.



Thank you all for your wonderful comments! I know. I KNOW. A WHITE sofa. I'm crazy. I'm also so addicted to Craigslist it's not funny. There's some gems when you sift through the fug! (Also, Katie, YOU ARE SO RIGHT ABOUT DIVERSITY THRIFT. Love it.)

So, since I'm on this apartment roll, I thought I'd share some of my favorite spaces (this is part one). I'm sorry for the lack of sources, but they're most likely from Design*Sponge or Apartment Therapy. The one below is almost certainly from sfgirlbybay. Let me know of any other uncredited sources!

ahem.



Sorry I suck at blogging. I've just been sick and stressed and, well, if you spend any time reading this blog you know I'm already kind of a low-energy person. So one thing happens and the rest falls to pieces, including this little blog. But! I'm back. For now, at least.

Sooo...I now have an apartment in Richmond and I'm so, so excited. It's got a gorgeous bay window and lots of natural light and an adorable white fireplace and a total Parisian vibe. The lobby has red carpet (creepy) and a huge painting done by the previous owner before she died (creepier). I believe the building has been around since 1897 and, while I don't believe in ghosts, I love thinking about hauntings.

I am on a pretty tight budget and have minimal furniture, but I bought the chair below on Craigslist for $50 and I'm pretty much using it as a starting point. The room at the top of this post was featured on Apartment Therapy and is pretty much what I would do with my place if I had a job and buckets of money.



Here's what I'm eyeing at Ikea and Urban Outfitters. Obviously I can't afford to buy all of this, but IwouldifIcould, you know?

This Couch:


With these legs:


Or this couch:



With pillows this color -- oh, that's the Ikea couch I like, with the good legs!:

The Obligatory rug:



This Coffee Table:




And these accents:




plus my 132354732523 art prints/accessories I've bought from etsy and other online shops.

Obviously I need side tables and lamps and a TV-holder and a TV but...I don't really know what I'm looking for and I'm thinking I can use crappy stand-ins until I actually make money/find something I like.

I also just realized I'm boring and like everything white. I've been told my style is very sterile and Patrick Bateman, but that's what the furry rugs are for!

To be honest, I'll probably just get one of those two couches and thrift the rest. Which one do you prefer?

I have no original thoughts right now. Nothing of interest, at least.
