roses, roses, roses and guns

so many colours and crazy accessories -chains, patches, badges, hats, scarves, sunglasses, tattoos-
and they STILL rocked out!
found a good selection of guns'n'roses t-shirts at wearyourbeer, including a couple of the most well-known designs: the bullet as seen on axl's jacket above, the appetite for destruction cross, a black&white bullet and a couple of tour tees. imagine them worn in true axl style: oversized, with coloured jeans (apart from black, he often wore red or white jeans), a ripped up denim jacket or waistcoat, big boots and a bandana,
just awesome.

concert balls

friday night was concert night. they are locomondo, a greek reggae/ska band whose music is so cheerful and dance-inducing (greek readers will know them for sure!). they're pretty well respected in that they're the first band to combine reggae sounds with traditional greek musical elements and they always get a great reaction at their shows. at the opening song, about 15 beach balls were let loose from the top of the amphitheater and the crowd was bouncing them around for the rest of the evening. i decided that they matched my outfit so i borrowed one and brought it home.
zara jumpsuit, stradivarius sandals, oasis headband 

black satin

mango trousers, stradivarius top, topshop allegra boots, fiorelli bow bag, various bling

shoe show

stumbled across a flyer for a shoe exhibition/stock clearance by a cypriot shoe manufacturing company: they were clearing out their warehouse and decided to offer the gems of vintage shoes for show. they were mostly from the 60s-70s. loved exploring the musty-smelling showroom, complete with 70s furniture, some of the original shoe lookbooks and old posters - and how cool is the illustration on that yellow shoebox?

love long sequined dress, love purple cocktail dress, love black socks and high heeled pumps, delicate chains as jewellery, smokey eyes, dark nails, and hair, hair, hair - so mermaidesque!

how cool to wear your own mugshot on a tee! she was arrested in 1970, after authorities 'became suspicious' of the vitamins she was carrying in her luggage. the reasons behind her arrest seem to have more to do with her campaigning against the vietnam war and the charges were dismissed after a few months, once the tablets were all lab tested and found to be... vitamins, doh.
