I got this one on eBay for $34- she still has a few left

 

I know that most of you are not thinking about sweaters right now, but here in San Francisco it’s that terrible time of year where the days get longer, the flowers start blooming, and the weather stays exactly the damn same. It leaves me with a closet full of cute spring dresses it’s way too cold to wear, and a desperate need for layers. And truth be told, I’m feeling some serious hate for the current coverup options. I’m short, and while I’m hardly heavy I’ve got a serious ass and thigh thing happening, so sweaters with descriptions like ‘boxy’, ‘boyfriend’, and ‘slubby’ really don’t work out for me. I end up looking more like Janeane Garofalo at a slumber party than like those leggy girls on ASOS. Those oh-so-hip handkerchief hem cardigans that flare at the hip? Worst thing ever on my body type. I might as well wear a bustle with jeans.

What I really wanted were some fitted, vintage-style cardigans that flatter the waist and boobs. It’s easy to find them if you like the rockabilly look- but I don’t.  So all the Hellbunny ones were out, and most of what Modcloth had are just too cutesy ( Did this one really need the Scotties? It would’ve been just fine, guys) . Then I just happened to find a cute Karen Millen sweater on eBay that fit the bill- and now I want everything she’s ever made with this silhouette! Sadly, the current collection is pretty lackluster, but I picked up an unworn one on eBay for about $35 (link under photo above).

The Perfect Medium

9780300111361

One more thing I need on my bookshelves: The Perfect Medium: Photography and the Occult, which features more than 250 images from occult societies and private and public collections, many never before published,  each claiming to capture a genuine occurrence of paranormal phenomena.  Ranging from the Victorian era up until the 1960s, this treasure trove of historical photos came out of a 2005 exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
