Sunday was Dave’s actual birthday. I wore this new vintage dress. It was ridiculously overpriced (£25 in a charity shop), but I got it anyway, because it has pockets and it’s ice creamy colours which are so lovely for spring and the closest I will ever get to the neutral trend.
dress, bag – charity shop
shoes – river island
These were the things I gave Dave:
This tshirt from threadless. He was posing in true threadless style to illustrate the design.
This cute cat thing.
The very hungry Caterpillar badges. It’s called Raupe Nimmersatt in German – Caterpillar never full. Which is a bit better than ‘very hungry’ don’t you think?
We went for Sunday lunch and in the evening we went to see Woodpigeon, who are a Canadian band with an Edinburgh connection. The singer lived in Edinburgh for years before returning to Canada and refiguring the band in its current line up. I actually had no idea about the Edinburgh thing, we discovered them at last year’s Summer Sundae festival in Leicester. They are one of those bands with lots and lots of members, but there were only 5 of them there on the night. I have no idea why they aren’t more famous than they are, they are really very good! I even bought one of their cds, I haven’t bought a physical cd in years.
The support was Laura Gibson, who it turns out I knew the songs of. I’m not sure why, and it’s hard to keep track with all these singer songwriter ladies called Laura. I chatted to her briefly after the show and she said she liked my dress! She was wearing this dress, which was also very cool.
Hope all the Brits have gone/are going out voting today. I’m not allowed, so it’s very important that everyone else does and does the right thing too!
