I was walking through the town centre today - down a narrow-ish  
street of high buildings and for a second I felt like I was in new
york. just how the darkening sky and sudden shift in light affected
the buildings and everything around you. it only lasted a second.
but it was a nice feeling.

I've been listening a lot to Jessie Ware this week. I love this
album. perfectly suits the cold/wintery/rainy/blustery weather
we are having (so bad I actually keep thinking we are in autumn
- then I remember) but you know what - I actually don't mind it 
except I hate getting wet - which is a bit of an oxymoron ... and
that last bit is pretty ironic considering I live in the uk.

I'm working on the new york photos at the moment. every
time I look at them my heart aches a little bit - I'm not even
joking. they are coming soon. very soon. in 1's and 2's. look
out for posts with the title #newyork

this album is great. buy it.

   snagged this shirt on the 'bay. I had to have it at whatever
   cost. luckily that worked out at just $15.50. one slight problem
   ... it's XL. haha I just know when it arrives and I take it out it's
   going to be ginormous!!! - but I'm just gonna have to try and
   shrink it down and/or roll the sleeves up - 'cause it's my new
   favourite t shirt. I particularly love the wording on the back.

   would Morrissey approve?

What Are You Wearing ... Who Are You Listening To? ... NEW YORK ... #5

   Hayley, 20
   (taken outside FIT building, 7th Avenue on the Friday morning. I had just
   been to the Post Office (very impressive building - THOSE STEPS!!) on 8th
   avenue to post a postcard to my cousin in Italy. when I went in it was all
   bright sunshine, when I came out it was grey and overcast and it was like
   everything suddenly changed. buildings now seemed overpowering, tall

   and imposing. I walked onto 7th avenue, passed the FIT building and saw
   Hayley. first thing I said to her was how the weather had suddenly changed.
   ... it was nice speaking to her at that moment)

   jacket Forever 21
   dress:  Urban outfitters
   socks:  Forever 21
   boots:  Frye (a gift from my cousin) 
   bag:  from a company my sister works for called Derin International 
   style inspiration:  I get a lot of inspiration from the 40's + 50's ... I'm 
   very into the whole kind of rockabilly pin-up girl ... with a little bit
   of a like punk rock edge to it ... definitely comes from music like you
   were saying (I had said how this feature was about how the music
   you listen to can influence what you wear) ... I just really like that
   kind of vintage 40's/50's look ... that's like my main inspiration

   last song you listened to:  Elvis Presley - Heartbreak Hotel 
   last album you bought:  I don't remember the album, but I'm pretty
   sure the last artist I downloaded was Pennywise (nice answer!)
   (Here is a Pennywsise song)
   last gig you saw:  Angus Stone at The Bowery Ballroom

song of the year. already.

  Alison Moyet IS BACK.
 *this* is how to make a comeback.

 I knew Alison had a new record coming out.
 but I kind of expected it to be more soulful bluesy stuff.

 then I saw the below.


   how amazing is this song??

   I love that it has a real torch song/kd lang feel
   but with a real urgent driving beat. I seriously
   love the verses - they are my favourite part of

   the whole song.

   all I've listened to for the past 2 days. I love how
   a song comes from nowhere and affects you like this.
   why I love music.

   bought off itunes and the album pre-ordered.
   4 months in. my single of the year.
