Although i'm not wild about the storyline of this movie, any film with Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan and Christina Hendricks can not be bad. Plus it won Best director at Cannes film festival this year so i'm thinking it's a definite must see. Review to come...

Absolutely loving the new Autumn/Winter campaign for Dr. Martens titled "First and forever" and starring Agyness Deyn and Ash Stymest. It's all so 'This is England'/James Dean/Androgynous/mod. Pretty much the epitome of the brand and I don't think it could have been done any better. Bravo.
So the last one was a way fun time. Booze, bands and bitches.
Get yourself's down to Nation of shopkeepers this wed for the next one yeah?
So i'm starting my own business shortly selling great quality vintage and retro bags. I'll be handpicking every item individually and from all over the country and Europe. I aim to have authentic leather satchels, leather rucksacks, duffel bags, non-leather rucksacks, sport sacs, suitcases, vintage totes, and box bags all at reasonable prices.
After much thought i'll be naming it Audrey & George after Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard in my all time favourite movie Breakfast at Tiffany's. I'm so so excited about this project and can't wait for it to be up and running.
I'll also be collaborating with my best friend Rebecca Heard who will be selling super stylish vintage clothes under the named Wooden Willow. Together we're going to eventually have our own website, attend vintage fairs and also maybe in the not too distant future have a pop up shop or two. We are also going to run the world. More to come....
One of the most beautiful and breathtaking fashion shoots i have ever seen in the current issue of Love magazine. Photography by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot and styled by Katie Grand.
Apologies to the phone pics but my scanner is at my gran's so can't scan anything in until i get it back. If you click each one you'll get a bigger version and they look better.
This shoot reminds me of a chilling video i watched none too long ago by Wim called see you hurry. I wonder if they're connected or if someone took influence from the other.
Last month Queen Bee talks us through the 7 outfits/looks that shaped her career.
1. "Crazy in Love" 2003. Beyonce embodies a female James Dean with the iconic white tee with denim. Looking good.
2. "Deja Vu" 2006. Chanelling Josephine Baker and Brigitte Bardot
3. Sasha Fierce album art 2008. Looking smokin' wearing a gold breastplate by Jose Barrera.
4. "Single ladies" 2008. Momma Knowles made these one shouldered body's the night before the video.
5. "Telephone" 2010. Dueting with Gaga, Beyonce said she wanted to be a bad girl and researched Bettie Page and all of her pin up poses. She also took influence from Tarantino.
