Gainsbourg


Everyone loves Charlotte, especially French Vogue (she's pretty much their poster girl, right?). I've been doing a lot of vogue.fr-ing under the guise of "learning french", and this video with Beck- "Heaven Can Wait" is really great. La chanson is not really my thing but the vid is in a messed up weirded out american suburbia aesthetic. Clear and disturbing. It all goes perfectly in my book - directed by Keith Schofield.

Weekly

10/11/09

Hearing: The Very Best of Fleetwood Mac - Fleetwood Mac (HEAR THIS: The Chain), Peek-A-Boo - Siouxsie and the Banshees, Cable TV - Fol Chen

Reading: The Economist, surprisingly fascinating for a real-news-phobe like me. I get all my current affairs knowledge from their effect on culture or in bitesized chunks from Twitter.

Watching: I, Claudius. Oh, the intrigue!

Isis

I was organizing a photo shoot for the Isis this Saturday. We got lots of clothes.




Then we went to Bethnal Green and took some photos on a roof, in a barbers and in a greasy spoon.
TEAM ISIS ALL THE WAY.

Viennese

Do I look Austrian?
I bought this hat for 4 euro and it is proper Viennese "Papesch".
The scarf is from H & M and has now been relegated to the "left in a club toilet" section of losses.

I dyed my hair red also. I quite like it but it fades so quickly I might have to do it once a fortnight to maintain this colour. I used L'oreal Excell10 Cherry Chocolate but it didn't come out at all on my friend who has black hair. Anyone got any recommendations for any that are stronger?
