I don't normally do this kind of thing...

I went to a fancy dress party - I don't know what came over me. But don't worry, it was quite a good one. The theme was New York movies, so I went as Edie Sedgwick.

Here I am looking suitably unhappy with my lot in life with (l-r) Big, Carrie, Madison and Michael Corleone:

Here I am with Madison (Daryl Hannah) from Splash:

Vintage coat, Warehouse earrings, Zara dress

Sorry to disappoint any eyebrow fans out there, but they aren't my own.

I picked Edie before I'd actually seen the film, because she was a badass:

I didn't know she'd had such a thoroughly shit time - poor Edie.

Go with the Flo

Last night I went to see Florence and the Machine with Claire of Shoegazer fame (http://www.shyshoegazer.blogspot.com/).
This is what I wore:
Muu Baa jacket, Paul's Boutique bag, Topshop vest and belt, Miss Selfridge skirt, Primark sandals
This is what Florence wore:

You can't see the dress very well, so I will elaborate. It was navy blue, and could have been a Debenhams prom dress if it weren't for the saving grace of two chunky chain things going under her breasticles and around like a waistcoat. They made the dress interesting and stylish - I'm sure it would be a very easy customising project too...
The girl herself is a nutter - she reminds me of Boudicca and Lady MacBeth, she signs so loud and so passionately. It really is a wonder people like Lily Allen are mentioned in the same breath as her. See Claire's blog for a proper music-centric review - me, I'm all about the surface!
The support band were really good too - the Golden Silvers, check them out!
