Generally speaking, I really like Calvin Klein shoes and handbags – it’s another case of liking accessories much more than their actual RTW designs (Betsey Johnson is another example). I got to see a greater range of designs formally working in Handbags and Shoes (which I miss), but I still love seeing them on display in [...]
I don’t understand running in an office – I do not work in an ER. Or micromanagement.
Love these – VBH bags on Gilt today, handmade in Florence, the cheapest of the 4 is $559 (the blue one). These are amazing but I have a thing against snake and alligator skin, so alas, I can’t buy them.

I’ve always loved tattoos but never really wanted one until fairly recently (about the last year or so) – I just never really thought I’d want to put something on my body permanently. Semi-irrational view from someone with an implanted piercing on their chest. But I guess it was more a lack of desire than [...]
In what seems to be my never ending move to New York (now 2+ years), I requested another shipment of belongings from Chicago. I wanted my random assortment of vintage patterns to be included in said package, and much to my surprise, my sister Lauren mentioned she discovered a few patterns in the mass of [...]
I opened an Etsy shop about a month ago now, and it’s still in the beginning stages and needs some additional posts, but I still wanted to post the first link of many reminders to come: http://www.etsy.com/shop/kristenelmer
