Ask me anything   ----------------------------
I'm Karen.

east of east st. louis
and the wind is making speeches
and the rain sounds like a round of applause

vintage clothing. plaid. Gemütlichkeit. wool socks. christoph waltz. bbc radio 6. dorothy parker. scotland. cocktails. british sea power. ivy. tweed. very long reads. the scent of pipe tobacco. terriers. road trips. barbara stanwyck. fog.
not necessarily in that order.

Edinburgh from Salisbury Crags.
I wrote this mournful essay ‘EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND’ for ‘Everywhere is the New New York’ and posted the whole thing over here if you’d like to read it. A taste:
It’s cold and the sky lips the hill of Arthur’s Seat. The commuters walk down the blue and red North Bridge from the high-leaning higgledy of the Old Town over to eighteenth century New Town. The Crags and the Seat overlook them, leaning back in their mist. The commuters keep their hands in their pockets, their scarves neatly tucked at their throats.

Beautiful.  Go read this.

not a fan of the logo, but i like the concept.  from the pre-fall 2013 collection, Chanel cross-body sporran style flask bags.  i’d fill mine with Auchentoshan or Laphroaig and go tromping through the snow!
