the only band ever






river island kimono jacket*
H&M hat
maybelline ceramic blue* and models own jack frost

This is what I wore last night to go see one of my favourite bands ever Alexisonfire. It was the first date on their Farewell Tour so it was a sad but perfect affair. I really enjoyed shouting along to my favourite songs, although the thought of not actually seeing them again sucks. I haven't been to a gig in so long so I didn't really know what to wear. I opted for leggings, a long top with this kimono. I didn't actually wear the hat during the gig as it would have gone missing in about 5 seconds. I cant remember the last time I wore this kimono but it's really grown on me, I rediscovered it a few weeks ago and it's become my go-to throw on going out jacket. Tonight Im off to a party for the launch of a new Youtube Channel with some of my favourite bloggers. Should be a good night, lets hope it doesn't end the same way as the party I went to on Thursday! I feel live I've only just recovered enough!

  32. You look lovely, love the kimono. I was at the gig, I did keep an eye out for you (in a non-stalker way!) but I didn't spot you! I thought the gig was awesome though they played a few songs I didn't know, need to get the albums out again! And I missed the encore cos I had to get my coach and they played two of my favourite songs, dammit! xo
