The best show of my life was My Bloody Valentine's reunion tour in 2008. Kind of goes without saying, really. I didn't really expect anything less from one of the greatest rock bands of all time, a label I offer not as hyperbole, but as simple fact, something everyone just knows. And while my recollection of the show is still crystal clear I won't discuss it right now because I'd like to keep those memories my own. But my boyfriend and I did buy matching t-shirts! Both of which shrunk to the point where they are no longer wearable - mine doesn't fit me anymore and I've saved it for posterity. Johns' tee doesn't fit him either and he reluctantly gave it to me. I can totally understand his reluctance! But I still cackled with glee because this is the PERFECT soft, worn-in band tee in subtle colors that match everything. Best when worn with a leather jacket because, after all, My Bloody Valentine did start off as a punk band...

Pamela Love dagger necklace to match the knife that the girl holds on the cover of You Made Me Realise.

Not visible very well from the first photo are these leather leggings I had on underneath by Paige that I wear basically every single day. The leggings rule primarily because of the ponte cotton back, so it shapes the legs really well. Sometimes, sometimes, I do like to wear flattering clothes.

Anyway, my boyfriend spent a small part of our Sunday afternoon soaking up each other's awesomeness at Lula Cafe, which is probably the single most important reason to live in Logan Square.

Have you thought about making a bag or, hmm, hat or cushion from your shrinken t-shirt? (or maybe it's too sacred to you to do that!)
I love the tones of this outfit's colors, and the cut and pattern of the skirt. Really interesting.
