Fashion and... Vampires.

By C.Elizabeth


Since I was a little girl, I've always been fascinated with Vampires. Not in a creepy way obviously but I've always wanted to know more about them, read more about them and "see" more about them (through movies and TV). "Dracula" by Bram Stoker is one of my favorite books. When Andrew found out about this, he decided to buy me "Salem's Lot" by Stephen King. I've started reading it recently and so far, I love it. I've read a few of Stephen King's books in the past but never was a very big fan of his. This book though, probably because it's one of his early one, it's amazingly well written, fresh and different. Have you read it? If so, what did you think?


When a writer returns to his Maine home town, he discovers that the peaceful hamlet is being overrun by vampires and sets out to curb this ancient evil before it can spread.


Also, last weekend was another sunny one (part of it anyway) so we went for a walk (and for some bread). Everytime it's sunny like this, it reminds me of home and cheers me up. I'm used to so much more sun than we get here in the UK (not that it's hard to beat!).

Here are some pictures:



Top from Primark, skirt from Dorothy Pirkins, leggings from H&M and shoes from Primark.

Thanks for the comment! I also have a "thing" for vampires! lol I find them really interesting! I haven't read Salem's Lot, but I have seen the movie. It's an older movie made from the book, I almost want to say in the 80's. Not sure though, but I was young and scared by it! haha
