rock and roll and cups of tea

Last night we went to see a few bands play. (Two shows in two nights! Rock and Roll!) I wore my new (for me) vintage Trent Nathan dress. It has the peter pan collar and cuffs that I really like. Again, we had the joy of flash-pictures, and John was not the most patient photographer ("What, you want more than one?!") as we got these in just before we left.

thrifted shoes, (and yep, beer was spilt on them)

the red and white pattern

The dress was perhaps just that little more appropriate as we went to see Nathan Hollywood again. As he was first on we had to get there pretty early, which did mean some sitting about in an empty venue feeling a bit odd. It was worth it – it was his best I've seen yet. Gentle Ben and His Sensitive Side were headlining, and were amazing. Completely blew me out of the water. Honestly. The man is a genius – a word that gets bandied around far too often but in this case is absolutely needed. I would have liked to have stayed on for a bit, to dance to the music they play afterwards (the music of my long gone teenage years, I still like it) but John does not care for that, so we went straight home for tea and biscuits (I told you I was rock and roll). In the taxi home I saw the moon; it was massive and orange and really low – did anyone else see that? It was beautiful! I guess that made up for not getting to lurch about to the Ramones ;)

That dress looks so lovely on you. You should wear red more often.

I'll have to check out Gentle Ben and his Sensitive Side. I've never heard of them before.

nice dress! the pattern is cool, sort of unexpected

Indeed, red looks killer on you, as does the Peter Pan collar look. And I have to admit, I'm with you on your Rock N Roll tea. It makes a great night even better knowing that you have something lovely and comfortable to come home to.

Love the dress, it's very cute, and you look v pretty. Cups of tea are great, even rock chicks need to relax

Keshe said...

Cute dress, you pull off the peter pan collars so well (example: the dress below! I am IN LOVE with that dress, it's the first 'new' item of clothing I've noticed in a long time!). And you look really cute in the close up photo - is that a headband? I can't quite see..

red shade lips are so beautiful on you! is your hair straightened or cut? i don't know but it looks fab and makes you look younger too!

Miss_Corrine said...

Your dress is gorgeous - I'm so into Peter Pan collars, heeeee!

Nadine said...

I love the dress! The color is awesome!

Anastasia said...

Oh my goodness, you just keep getting more perfect. That red dress is so lovely. Oh, and your hair looks divine. I wish the vintage stores where I lived offered such wonderful pieces. Alas. I shall have to content myself with being envious of you. Lovely as always.

such a pretty dress, I can't believe I have no peter pan collared items!! Sounds like a great night. My hubby is just as impatient so a lot of my night out outfits don't even get pictures taken, lol.

Lady Melbourne said...

Goodness knows where you find these pretty dresses but if they all go missing one night you know where to look!
Love red on you and you are right, the dress was perfect for the occasion.

Oh that is a lovely dress, and you still manage to look fabulous in flash photos, which just don't work for me! Haha why is it that taking a decent number of photos is just beyond some men? Have you considered taking in the shoulders of the dress possibly?

Miss Karen said...

I love the your dress - you look amazing in it!

I love seeing that big yellow moon. I saw a red one once too!

strikematch: thanks! That encourages me to get a red vintage dress I tried on the weekend... !!! :) Do check out BG&HSS, they are SO good.

ali: thanks! It is hard to photograph, I think a day time pic will do it more justice :)

super kawaii mama: thanks – more reasons for the red dress above! And I agree, it is bliss! :)

*indie_queen*: thanks! I'm a very relaxed rock chick! :D

keshe: thanks! Yes, the blue dress below is new new, which is so novel for me now! It's a ribbon tied in a headband, trying to keep in-between-length hair off my face :)

heartofpearl♥: thanks very much! My hair is natuarally dead straight, I just usually wear it up or under a hat because I'm growing out the cut... I looked so young on Friday I got ID'd! I'm 27! Flattering!

miss_corrine: thank you! Me too! :)

nadine: thanks! I am hankering after a little more red these days... :)

anastasia: thanks so much! :D The vintage shopping gems are rare for me too, good luck with your searches :)

hailey @ stylesymmetry.com: thanks! I wanted one for ages, and I'm happy at last... oh, isn't it bad, the reluctance? I might jut get the tripod out at night, too – that'll really slow us down! :D

lady melbourne: haha! Thanks very much! :)

louise s: thanks! hehe I know, it takes all of two minutes... :) Yes the dress is a bit big, I was going to sew it in but I have to fight my lazy for that. I was thinking of pinning the collar at the back with a brooch to bring it in a little, to make the fit just right ( like Goldilocks!) :D

esme and the lane way said...

miss karen: thank you! Coll, I don;t know why, I love the moon. It makes me sound like an old witchy hippy or something..! :D

Bucca said...

great dress!

Robyn said...

Very cute dress! Rock N Roll tea sounds great too :)

Mila said...

So beautiful again!! <3
Your face is very pretty...

Sal said...

Two shows in two nights is rock 'n' roll enough, lady. I'm impressed, even if there were tea and biscuits after!

esme and the lane way said...

Bucca: thanks! I don't think the pics here do it justice :)

Robyn: thanks! It really was, I do like tea and biscuits.

Mila: thanks!

Sal: hehe it was fun:)

Cute, cute, cute girl. Red really is your color. And I am jealous of your ability to find the most wonderful dresses. It's odd, I haven't bought hardly anything in the last couple months and I feel as though I really need to buy something--I am getting tired of my closet, which is horrible because I have too many clothes that I don't even wear. Anyway, like I said you look fantastic--another favorite of mine! And sounds like another fun night!!
Ciao dear <3

Hey hey. I love your dress it is so cute, I love Peter Pan collars. Your photos are always amazing, makes me with I had a better photographer (Henry does all my photos...in a hurry) I wanted to thank you so much for the super cute and sweet thank you note too, I have never ever received a thank you note before and it made my day. You have such nice manners, I wish more people could be like that these days but it is all about email isn't it? (ok yes I am thanking you in a comment on a blog so I'm not exactly perfect, lol) Thanks so much. Hayley xoxo

esme and the lane way said...

Thumbelina: thanks very much! I know what you mean – sometimes you just want something new!:)

Fashion Hayley: my pleasure – I'm glad you like it! :)

Snowshoe said...

esme and the lane way said...

Snowshoe: hehe thanks!

loou said...
