“From the hard time living ’til the Chelsea days,
From when her hair was sweet blonde ’til the day it turned grey
You’ve got more than money and sense, my friend,
You’ve got heart and you go in your own way”
– Noah And The Whale, ‘Life Goes On’

Coquet coquette, you know I won’t forget
How you kissed me strange to prove you were mythical
– “Coquet, Coquette“, Of Montreal
If there were ever a band designed to make you throw on something lacy and swing your hips around the office, it would be Of Montreal. I can never sit still when I put their music on (and I suggest you follow suit!).
What I Wore: Black peplum mini dress with lacy sleeves from China, black caged heels from Siam Square, a multi-string necklace of vintage pearls, and “16 Rouge Roxane” from YSL Rouge Pur Couture.
“Run and tell all of the angels,
This could take all night,
Think I need a devil to help me get things right”
– “Learn to Fly“, Foo Fighters
