Put a heart on it

I have a heart obsession, no really I do.  I follow mine almost wherever it takes me. This 1960's dress has become a favorite of mine since Cristi altered it for me.
 And although this corduroy jacket has never done much for me on the outside
The inside makes up for it because it's red satin covered in white hearts.
  Here is a hat that I wear often from Sarah at Misfit Vintage. 
And here is a close up of my new glasses.  After 5 years I needed a new prescription, life is in focus again.
I feel like I'm cheating on Kiss Me Kitty with these cheap leggings, but at $6 I thought what the hey.  I'm a sucker for a sweet print
and anything with a face.
 Wearing Vix's signature Barry M polish.

And speaking of hearts, mine has been stolen by the worlds tiniest mermaid, BettyLou.  Check out these spectacular photos her mom Crystal sent Cristi and I.  
Here she is rocking her very own pair of KMK kitty leggings!  What a gorgeous lil poppet!  This kid makes me feel so special, and I really can't wait until we see her again.  I LOVE YOU BETTYLOU and we are mermaids friends until the end!

I wanted to also share another tiny teaser of what I've been working on.  It will be dark and a bit on the creepy side, a reflection of things I'm working through. 
What I've been reading is definitely having an influence on what I'm creating.
These comics are incredibly rich in detail and I can barely stand the show now and I'm only 5 into 18 of these.  

Tomorrow is a much needed haircut and a visit with Cristi.   I hope the week is being good to you all!

I share your hearts obsession,but it's so hard to find this kind of print here!The jacket is lovely, the cheetah hat is one of my favourite and the new glasses rock!I'm really intrigued by your art, I'm a big fan of Blythe dolls, they are really interesting models, they have that vintage look and those big eyes that make them irresistible! And I can spot a Victor Castillo's girl from here! I love him so much! Can't wait to see more, especially if it's creepy!!
BettyLou is adorable in her Kiss me Kitty photoshoot! Give Cristi a hug from me and have a wonderful day!!

I love corazones! You rocking that heart outfit. BettyLou is the cutest!
You Blythe mona project looks super cool.

Hearts and stripes and flowers and butterflies and leopard print and gorgeous you! The perfect combination for an outfit, I think. Add in Barry M and great new glasses and plaits, and it just got even better. I can certainly see why that dress is such a favourite, and even though they won't be the same quality as KMKs, the leggings do have a fabulous print.
Following your heart... I think I do it too, though I tend to describe it in terms of instinct or gut reaction. Actually those are judgments based on our experiences and knowledge, so they often aren't random or unthinking at all. So yes, keep on following your heart, Krista, it's the only way!
Bettylou is such a sweetie, and I am looking forward to seeing your finished art work. Hope your weekend is full of lots of heart-felt loveliness! xxxxx

Helga! said...

What a fecking awesome mix of prints!
I used to loathe hearts and bows, but am a big fan of both these days! I have plenty of bows, but clearly not enough hearts! You are a gloriarse bright being with your adorable plaits on top, like the icing on top of a spectacular cake! I'm sure cristi forgives you for being unable to resist those leggings!
O, little darling Miss Mermaid is a blossom!!!
Hmmm, this project is looking interesting! I'm not any kind of doll fan, but can see why people love these Blythe ones, they are quite odd!!! Can't wait to se the finished goods!

Hello! I love your heart obsession! I, too, have a love of hearts, but usually in jewelry more than clothes. I think that jacket is super sweet on you, and I love the dress and leggings. ;-) And look at that tiny mermaid!! AWW.

Melanie said...

This is one of my favourite outfits on you! Everywhere I look I see something delicious. I'm sure you are forgiven for the leggings - it would have been a crime to leave them for someone else. I can't wait to see your project!
Also BettyLou, awesome!

Penny-Rose said...

Oh this outfit is great - I love all of it.

Vix said...

I got to see that outfit for real (but couldn't tell you at the time how fabulous it all is!) The heart print dress is divine, if ever anything was made for you, that was. Love it shorter and even those aren't KMK leggings they're pretty damned cool. Those glasses really suit you and Barry M is the best! You'll need to come back soon to buy more as we aren't allowed to mail nail polish any more!
Betty Lou is adorable!
Have an amazing weekend! Love you! xxxxx

I was so excite to see you are reading the walking dead. I have been reading it for over 6 years and have loved every minute.

Anne said...

Wow. You are such an inspiration. You look so pretty in your new glasses!! I love your whole outfit. And your beautiful attitude. xoxo

Sandra said...

I'm glad we got a close up of them, they are fab!!, the jacket is very lovely too with hearts lining, in fact everything you are wearing is fab! your project is intriguing and fascinating, looking forward to the finished product - Mini Miss Mermaid BettyLou is a little sweetie - have a wonderful weekend! x x

Nice specs! I don't think I own anything with a heart print, but you look cute as blazes in your dress, and those leggings with the awesome print.

So nice to see more photos of BettyLou - she IS the cutest mermaid! I'm very intrigued by the project your're working on, especially since it includes Blythe!

Trees said...

Oh how I do love a good heart print! Beautiful frock and the lining of the jacket is so pretty. I'm looking forward to seeing this new project :)

freckleface said...

That takes courage to follow your heart, when sometimes your head has a different opinion. But it's a good lesson. As ever, you look colourful and joyful. You can't beat Barry M. FACT! You and Betty Lou are such a cute couple, just goes to prove, age doesn't matter when you find a twin soul. xxxx

Ariane Lasalle said...

You make mismatch match, amazing!
I believe i have the about the same leopard print hat -
I follow my heart, always had, it's the only way to go!


the Citizen Rosebud said...

I heart your hearts. The dress is made for you- thanks to your pal Kristi's seamstressing- she's a doll to alter it for you.

Misfits Vintage said...

Ah, there are the new glasses - they are friction GORGEOUS. I am loving your hair too - in braids with a lovely mermaidy curl at the front.

Those leggings are fab and I love all of the hearts too. You are beautiful, as always!
