It's Such A Perfect Day..

You wake in your own bedroom, in your own bed, with that beautiful dimmed light you get in the mornings. Let's say that you have a completely free day: no school/college/uni work, no people to see, nothing to deal with. And you get that warm half asleep feeling of knowing you can lie in.

You wake up naturally and instantly know it's time to get out of bed. We're going to France, to un petit cafe, now for breakfast.

You spend the next few hours,  (back in Blighty) in your pyjamas, with an unputdownable book in a big, old country house, by a roaring fire of course ;)

Lunch on the beach in Spain. Paella, lots of vino and good company.

We're going to New York in the afternoon for shopping and coffee with your best friend.

Back to your house for a lovely, long, hot bath with that book again and a glass of wine.

There is nothing more fun than getting ready for a night out with your girls.

Dinner in Paris with, hmm lets say Gaspard Ulliel, and then on to watch a Bloody Social gig back in NYC.

And of course then Jamie Burke (above right) takes you to an all night jamming session at Milk Studios.
And thus ends the most perfect day in the history of days.
Thank you and goodnight.

Miss Sixty

Whenever I'm asked the question, "If you had the choice which era would you choose to be born in?" (and I get asked that surprisingly alot...!) I always say, "the 40's so i could have been a teenager in the 60's" Everything about that decade appeals to me. The music, the fashion, the people, the art, l'attitude!  My look and style today really borrows influence from the fashion savvy people of that time. Here's a few of my favourites ;)

Penelope Tree

 "an Egyptian Jiminy Cricket"-David Bailey

 She was captivating and her appeal came from her bizarre features and gamine physique. She was odd and irresistable to the likes of legendary photographer David Bailey who described her very aptly above. I adore Penelope's poker straight hair and waif like figure. To me she seems alien, not human born, elven perhaps. 

Jean Shrimpton

The ultimate sex kitten. She's extremely pretty and her little shapely figure exudes sensuality don't you think?


Jimi Hendrix

A beautiful soul. A beautiful human being.  And the man had style. Nobody pulls off the Military Jacket quite like Jimi. And his bling, oh my. Not to mention his exquisite choice of hat. 

Jane Birkin

Naturally adorable with a streak of naughtiness. She was always getting her kit off. So rock n roll and just effortlessly glamourous. Also check out the over the knee socks she's sporting below, I must get my hands on a pair.

That's all I've got time for but I will add to this soon! Gosh theres just so many beautiful people.

if you're looking for a good film.

I thought I'd take the opportunity to share with you today my very favourite films. That is all.

"We are, we are we are the mods."
A gritty insight into London in the swinging 60's and the street fights between the Mods and the Rockers. My dad was a Mod (he had a scooter and everything hah) who used to participate frequently back in the day and has informed me that the film is very real to how it was.

Withnail and I
"We want the finest wines available to humanity. And we want them here, and we want them now!"
 Join two out of work actors as they tire of life in their grubby, drug den, Camden flat and decide to spend the weekend in the countryside. Depicts the sad, sad end of the 60's. Probably the best film you will ever see.

The Lost Boys
"One thing about living in Santa Carla I never could stomach, all the damn vampires."
Seriously hot, sexy, teenage Vampire boys. I love it so much I named my band after it.

Factory Girl
"To me, New York was Jackson Pollock sippingvodka and dripping paint onto a raw canvas."
Another glimpse into the 60's, im a little obsessed with that era you see, however this is the 60's over the pond in the U. S. of A. It revolves around the Warhol art scene and The Factory. A film about the tragedy of too much sex, drugs and rock n roll.

The Blues Brothers
"We're on a mission from God"
Two blues musician brothers set out on a mission to save the nun's orphanage where they grew up by putting on a sell out blues gig with their old band. Starring John Belushi and Dan Ackroyd aswell as James Brown (!) Ray Charles (!) Aretha Franklin (!) Booker T and The MG's (!) Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia herself!) John Candy (!) TWIGGY!! Steven Spielberg (!) It's increds.

The Labryinth
"Everything I've done, I've done for you. I move the stars for no one."
DAVID BOWIE STARS AS A GOBLIN KING. Reason enough to watch it in my opinion.
