Listening to

Kurran and the Wolfnotes - their new single Four Bends. They remind me of The Shins.

She & Him - Their new album, Volume two and You Tubing their Coachella covers.

Kate Nash pretending to be Karen O on her track I Just Love You More - surprisingly sexy.

Laura Marling - Rambling Man is my favourite.

Irving Penn

I went to the Irving Penn Portraits exhibition at The National Portrait Gallery a couple of weeks ago. It's insane how all of his photos, even those taken way back in the 40s, still seem so fresh and modern. If you forget about the snazzy clothes, you could almost mistake some of them to have been shot this decade. I particularly like the ones taken in his studio where the subjects are sandwiched between two walls, and his extreme close up shots (in some of them he's so close to the sitter you can see his shadow in their eyes).

I'm Here

Watch it here. You really must. Heartwarming stuff, it's one of those films that leaves you feeling odd, in a good way. Has a nice soundtrack too featuring Aska Matsumiya!

Two of my favourite online stores...

Thanks to the cherry blossom girl and wishwishwish for introducing me to them...

Ashes to Ashes

In dedication to the Icelandic ash fall that's emptying the sky of planes at the moment, isn't it strange - reminds you just how small we are!

Most Wanted

I'm on the hunt for a perfectly tailored oxford shirt, inspired by...

Oh, Chlo.

[Terry's Diary]

Chloe Sevigny, even with that boyish bob, still manages to look too cool for school.

Loved this shoot she did last month with ELLE UK...

Italia, In Film

I took these using my manual OM20 Olympus camera. Having been quite out of practice I was surprised at the lack of blur and even when I overexposed some of the shots it's seemed to have worked in my favour - some of these almost look like paintings! Happy Snapper.

Italia, The Trench

Now THAT is how to wear a trench coat. I spotted this dapper gent strolling down the street in Bologne. Check out those shades. The Italians sure know how to dress, I saw so many men casually cycling around the streets, fully suited. Belissimo! They reminded me of this.

Italia, The Fedora

Only a few posts back I was wishing I could pull one of these off, I tried it on for a laugh at the Leather market in Florence...but was encouraged by friends to be brave and buy it!

I'm still unconvinced that I suit it, but it's fun to wear, even if I do look more like an Australian ranger than a Kenzo girl!

Italia, Love Locks

I had never heard of love locks before my trip to Italy, it's such a sweet phenomenon. Couples attach locks and throw away the key to prove their everlasting love for one another. I visited the most famous site for this in Italy - Via Dell'Amore, where a path/tunnel connects the towns of Manorola and Riomaggiore in Cinque Terre. The pathway's legend holds that it was a meeting place for lovers from the two towns...

Italia, Snapshots

A few snaps from my easter weekend away to Bologna/Florence/Pisa/Cinque Terre....
