Okay, so I'm no music critic or whatever but I thought I'd do a 'song of the day' just cause I love music so much and I thought it might be interesting?
This cover of David Bowie's song (and probably my favourite Bowie song) 'Suffragette City' is such a good cover. The Horrors are currently one of my favourite bands, and have been for a couple of years now. If you haven't listened to The Horrors before then get yourself on YouTube pronto! They always seem to cover songs you wouldn't really expect, but that's one of the reasons why I adore them so much... I actually got the inspiration to do a 'song of the day' from The Horrors' website which I look at far too often... Enjoy!
So the blogger (who you probably all know of), Sheree Milli at Glitz & Grime is doing the most amazing giveaway with Daniel Footwear. Anyone in the UK can enter by making a Polyvore post of a festival outfit and one person wins; a pair of wonderful HUNTER WELLIES, Hunter socks and a skull scarf. I mean come on, how generous! I have always wanted a pair of Hunter boots just cos they're the coolest wellington boots ever and a festival essential. So anyway, this is my Polyvore post of my festival outfit. I'm off to Latitude Festival tomorrow to see my brother's band 'Weird Dreams' play so I'm probably going to wear something along these lines! I hope you guys like it!
You guys should all enter this giveaway on Sheree Milli's blog here.
Also, check out Daniel Footwear here, they have some fab stuff on their site.
On Friday night I had my school leavers prom. It was quite a lovely night and definitely better than most people expected. The event was at a hotel near to where I live and it was set out amazingly! All the tables were decorated in a lovely way and the whole room was so posh. The meal we had tasted a lot like aeroplane food which was gross. To be fair, they did cater well for vegetarians like myself by serving tofu along with other things. The tofu was badly over cooked though. (Rant over.)
The dress I found was from Urban Outfitters, I had done a post about it not long ago which you can read here. I had had my eye on this dress for a while and decided to try it on for a possible prom dress. I'm not really into the whole prom palava and I don't really wear dresses that often to be honest, so finding a dress took me forever. In the end I decided to buy this aztec dress and I love it. It isn't a traditional prom dress, kind of the complete opposite... I did look slightly out of place standing alongside my pals who all wore glamorous flowing dresses!
Before we arrived at the hotel for prom everyone went to my friends house to have photos taken etc. These are just a few of the photos my mum took on my SLR. I did take some photos during the night, they are all crap quality but if you'd like to see some more photos check out my instagram! (@epassey). The last photo is probably one my favourites from the night, love it.
The majority of these items I have wanted for AGES and when I get some money I am most definitely going to purchase a few of them. I especially want a harrington jacket, and have done for years now. Of course, a beautiful Fred Perry one would be amazing but evidently, being 16, I can't afford it. This eBay "dupe" will have to do for now! Also, just look how adorable those Romwe shoes are! I want them so so badly. They look so comfy and I reckon they could be worn throughout the whole year so I would get a lot of wear out of them.
Writing my name on this huge piece of paper that was going across a bridge over the River Spree.
East side gallery, probably one of my favourite places in Berlin.
One of my favourite pieces of artwork on the East side wall.
So over the weekend I went to Berlin with my dad, it was so amazing! I went to Berlin last February and ever since then its been one of my favourite places so I had to return. It's such an interesting place and the history of it fascinates me.
These are just a few of the photos from the trip, I didn't want to upload too many photos, but I think you get the gist that it's a beautiful place! I did go a bit crazy with taking photos though, I took my slr, iphone and disposable camera...
I only took hand luggage on the plane seeing as we only went for a weekend so I couldn't pack much! I decided to stick to jeans and shirts just because they're easy to pack and lightweight. It was unexpectedly boiling there though so I was roasting in my black jeans.
Berlin is literally one of the most incredible places; if you haven't been I definitely recommend you do!
