Cool Girls Spin Vinyl

And in my endless pursuit of being a 'cool girl', I scored some charity shop records today. I dusted off the record player that was left here when I moved in, sat back and listened to the warm crackly songs. And smile.
I'm not a huge fan of designer labels. If my clothes ever do have big showy labels on them, I usually try and cut them off or conceal them. However, I was rather tickled today when I was admiring this cardi in a charity shop and discovered it was MaxMara, I looked over my shoulder suspiciously, crept my way over to the cash register and promptly purchased it before anyone else discovered it. I have dreams of teaming it with a grey pleated maxi skirt, a big chunky brown belt and a straw hat this summer.

The Runaways

Just watched The Runaways and am now desperately longing to own some leather trousers. Dakota Fanning and Kirsten Stewart made some very convincing rockers. Whilst It won't be making my top 50 movies of all time, it certainly is top ten in the somewhat niche category of 'Films about Self Destructive Young Females [who appreciate a Good Tune]'. Here are some of the titles that can be found in this unusual top ten [and the 'good tunes' that accompany them]:

+ Girl, Interrupted - Petula Clark/Downtown
+ Almost Famous - Elton John/Tiny dancer
+ La Vie en Rose - Edith Piaf/Non, je ne regrette rien
+ Virgin Suicides - Air/Moon Safari

.....The rest elude me....Suggestions please?

Here are some pretty colours from The Runaways.
