we only come out at night

Join me for a drink? I was inspired by American Horror Story with the idea of ghosts from different generations walking amongst the living on Halloween. Our house is pretty old... Who knows who might be joining us this year?

Illamasqua lipstick in 'Growl'

vintage lace coat (similar here and here)

Very cool. that chair and the pose was perfect.
My husband and I are hooked on that show. It so feels like a movie and not a series.
