Rain rain go away.

08 June 2009

This is definitely my favouritest and comfiest sweater. However, AA don't seem to have them online anymore but I know that Illustrated People have been using the same sweaters to print on, so I think they are the best bet to get hold of one of these!
Sweater (AA) Skirt (Topshop)Bow Necklace (Warehouse) Silver Chain (H&M)
I suppose I should be used to the British weather by now. Last weekend it was glorious sunshine at 27 degrees and this weekend it's been pouring down with rain and is cold again. Crazy. It's definitely a good thing that Wimbledon (which starts in a few weeks) has finally finished off the roof. That was most certainly a sound investment!
Hooded Jacket (Urban Outfitters)
This photo turned out really bright but I kind of like the result.

Boots (Blowfish)
I have also spent some of the afternoon browsing through the Bonhams auction of over 250 items from The Angels collection of TV and film memorabilia. The auction takes place on Tuesday 16th June and there are some fascinating pieces. From Jarvis Cocker's furry coat from his brief cameo in 'Harry Potter'' to an amazing bull fighter's jacket worn by Johnny Depp in the film, 'The man who cried' (I've not seen this, is it any good?) as well as lots of costumes worn in the 'Doctor Who' TV series, 'Stardust and' Blackadder'.

It's worth a quick browse to have a look see at all the costumes. It would be so awesome to have a good old rummage at the Angel's warehouse, so many treasures! I would have loved to have gone to the sale which took place last December which was well documented by the awesome Susie here and here!

  8. What an amazing neclace you have on.

    Its been stormy here which keeps you awake at night..I'm so tired during the day. Ugh.

    I love those boots. So cool but comfy too. I got me some really cute and cheap Faded Glory clogs that have turned out to be the most comfortable shoes. & I just picked them up because I thought they were cute with the little flowers on them.

  32. I was browsing the auction today, estimated prices are surprisingly reasonable if you are a real obsessive about any of the movies.

  37. What a cute necklace :) I love your hooded jacket! And I would have loved to have gone to the Angels sale, it sounded sooo amazing. Oh and you should totally watch The Man Who Cried. It's not a movie most would expect Johnny Depp to do, but it is amazingly powerful.
