New Band On The Block: Venice


This five-piece caught my eye after discovering them through their management buddies Deaf Havana and Francesqa. You might recognise them from their previous project Lights and Sounds but they’ve had a shiny musical makeover. Now edging towards a more laid-back pop approach, their dramatically matured sound and talent is indisputable. The fact that they’ve managed to convey this in only a couple of demos and stripped down, acoustic videos is a testament in itself. The results so far are looking promising; angelic vocals, passionate lyrics and big pop gems perfect for summer. Newest teaser ‘Satellites’ particularly fits these three categories but the beautiful acoustic version of 'City Of Lights' is what drew me to them. Progress is being kept under wraps at the moment whilst they make their debut album, but something tells me that it will be worth the wait.

Topshop/Ragged Priest



Fringed Kurt Cobain Nirvana top by Ragged Priest.

I pounced on this top so quickly in Topshop Oxford Circus today that I almost broke the rail (true story). I was on my own as well which is quite embarrassing. Anyway...I love this label, definitely one of my favourites. They do the most amazing studded leather jackets as well, I'm talking crazy big pointy studs. I want one so bad. You can visit their ebay page to see some of their collection:


I then got a bit carried away with my love of fringe (blame Jimi Hendrix) and bought one of Topshop's own crops. I love vintage Harley Davidson tops and this reminded me of that style. I bought these two tops with my trip to Tennessee for Bonnaroo festival in mind. It's not actually until June but Topshop's new hippy festival collection (Snake Valley) got me really excited.


My final purchase was this chunky gold skull necklace. I am obsessed with all things skull so it didn't take much deliberation to be honest.

So yeah that was surprisingly all I bought from Topshop today, had to restrain myself big time. I don't usually post clothes i've bought on my blog but I was so chuffed with these that I had to!
