Dress: Shabby Apple; Bag: Old Navy (similar); Bracelet: Urban Outfitters
Shoes: Steve Madden via Last Chance (similar)

This is my new favorite dress from Shabby Apple. It's pink. It has a Betty Draper Francis silhouette. And it's modest. It is the unicorn of all dresses. Amber said that this dress is the one piece in my wardrobe that just screams 'Kristine', and I would say that I agree wholeheartedly. 

This weekend was filled with work and HUNGER GAMES. Yes, I am a Hunger Games fangirl. I'm a little quiet about it, but my obsession is there nonetheless. All I can say is:
  • The tracker jacker scene was awesome and I felt like I was watching a Britney Spears video.
  • I want to live in the Capitol solely due to those amazing costumes. 

 I think I'll see it again on Tuesday. 

Oh yeah, and back to this dress. I wore it to work on Saturday, and let me tell you, my post-apocalyptic walkie talkie did not mesh well with it. That is all.

  17. I wish I lived close to you so we could hang out--I think the combination would be utterly ridiculous. We're both crazy. (: Anyway, I would never wear that dress but it looks like it was MADE for you!

  21. I adored Hunger Games too...didn't expect it to be as good as it even was!!!  I agree...felt like a betrayer or something, but totally wanted to live in the Capitol just to dress up like that ;)  And the camera work was so artistic and conveyed emotion so well!!!  It was just a gorgeous film.

    This is just a gorgeous dress...it is SO YOU, Amber is right!  Love that teeny waist and full skirt, great silhouette...and that bright fabric makes it oh-so fun to wear.

  29. Hi Kristine, I have been following your blog for a bit and I love your style - so classy and bright! I also think its really neat that you live in Japan, my bf has been considering teaching overseas for a long time but we both want to finish up some schooling first. Was it a very hard adjustment? I also have just started a blog of my own and would be delighted if you could check it out some time: http://runninginsideus.blogspot.com/ thanks so much!
