January Photo Diary: VU Vinyl, Dream Wife and Bass Practice

January as usual was a slow month but some of the highlights included picking up some velvet underground vinyl, going to Dream Wife and learning to play bass

I wore my Hades jumper a good few times this month, its still one of my favourite fashion items :)

I bought a few dvds this month, the Marlon Brando documentary was really interesting, it included recordings of Brando himself and different pieces of footage. I haven't gotten around to watching the Godard movie yet but I can't wait because I've heard good things about it

I finally bought Loaded by the Velvet Underground. I don't know why I left it so long because I love Sweet Jane, Rock n Roll and New Age

I also bought this Velvet Underground live record in shop in Bristol called Repsycho, its mostly a vintage shop but in the basement they sell records too. I think the vinyl sleeve is amazing and its a double Lp so theres lots of live recording from 1969 in New York and Texas
using up my Christmas lush goodies - this one is the Christmas Pudding bathbomb
I went to see Dream Wife again this month. They played the Crofters Rights and it was completely sold out. I wore this silver cropped jumper from Urban Outfitters featuring a Dream Wife sticker
Dream Wife <3
as part of my New Year's resolution, I'm learning how to play the bass. I using the game Rocksmith to teach me some songs but I really should buy a book to learn some of the basic technical stuff (or maybe I'll try and find a good youtube tutorial)
I went a jam session in a warehouse in Bristol on the 28th. Its organised by an art collective called Jam Jar and its on the last Saturday of every month

I was also went to see Trainspotting 2 this month and I really liked it. I'm such a big fan of the first one and the second one really suprised me because it wasnt really about heroin this time but its based more on the characters, as always its really funny and Danny Boyle has some really creative shots in it

Thanks for reading :)


Sister Jane Spring Collection 2017

I absolutely love Sister Jane's new Spring collection. The collection is an alternative take on the girl gang look. Instead of biker jackets and jeans think peter pan dresses, ruffles and bell sleeves. The designs are feminine, fun and true to the London based brand's retro style. 

I thought I'd start with my three favourite pieces. The forget me not jacquard dress has the most gorgeous floral design and flared sleeves. It  reminds me of a dress from Valentino's A/W 2013 collection. The jacquard material is also used in cigarette trousers and a blazer. The confetti shadowplay dress is one of my favourite dresses from the collection. The combination of tweed and pleats is very Chanel-esque and the lace back really adds to it. Tweed is a major feature of this collection. They have with a pink and grey tweed blazers, skirts, tops and dresses. The belle de jour sweater has amazing ruffle detail on the sleeve, it also looks like the comfiest jumper ever because it is in a soft suede material. 

 Exaggerated sleeves are such a big trend this year and a major feature of this collection. I love the pleated front and the black brooch on the mint condition blouse. The saved by the bell dress is a modern take on the fifties silhouette, with bell sleeves and a full a-line skirt. I love the fun doodle print on the teen idol dress. It is also featured on the red teen idol ruffle blouse

There are some lovely mustard coloured pieces in the collection, including the chartreuse lace top which has the most amazing flared sleeves. The peter pan dress is always a staple of Sister Jane's collections and it returns this season with a contrasting mint pussy bow. The primrose tiered top is in a delicate pink shade with amazing tiered ruffle sleeves. 

Sister Jane is one of the best places for retro dresses with a modern twist. The macaroon oxford dress is a classic sixties shift dress, however, the ruffled bib gives it a preppy look. I love the pearl embellishment on the collar of the mustard dress. The main material of the dress is also slightly see through in places to reveal the lace overlay. The dear diary coven dress is one of the few darker pieces of the collection. The high neck collar, ruffle sleeves and swing shape is a modern take on the LBD.
