Femme Fatale

This outfit was supposed to look a little Edie Sedgwick but I'm not too sure. It has a 60s vibe but I feel like something is missing, maybe a beehive? This coat has been reduced even more in the sale now so if you're an XS you can snap it up for a bargain. I was worried that I wouldn't get much wear from a coat with a print but I've worn this pretty much every day since I bought it. It definitely makes me feel a bit rock and roll.

I went to see the NME Tour on Sunday and I wanted to share my thoughts on it a little. I think I've been to the tour every year since 2004 and I was a little underwhelmed this year. Maybe I'm too old now, not interested enough in new music or maybe the bands were just a bit pants but I didn't love the tour as much as I usually do.The opening band Peace were great and have a 90s vibe which I love and the front man has a leopard print coat like me so what's not to love? Palma Violets tried to have this dual vocalist thing going on and it just came across like poor man's Pete and Carl and Django Django bored me to tears. The only act that I thoroughly enjoyed that evening was Miles Kane and his amazing band. Most of the (male) crowd were there to see him play and his closing song 'Come Closer' brought the house down with people shouting for more and booing when he said he only had one song left. For me the tour would have been better if Miles was headlining. I am now also a little in love with a guy in his band (he's from Sheffield and has a quiff, perfect)...

Miles, swoon.

Having a few nights in this week and a fairly quiet weekend so look out for lots of posts over the next week on here and Where Are My Knees?

  10. Leopard print + 60s is a great combo, love both the jacket and dress!
    Miles is awesome, love Django Django too though! Really enjoyed the NME lineup a couple of years ago with Chapel Club and the Joy Formidable, but haven't bothered with it since then.
