Last-Week Links: 4 January 2013

Dear readers, welcome to a little experiment. It's that time of year after all. This is an attempt to report some of the things I've come across on this week's internet adventures. Perhaps it'll become a weekly thing - who knows? How very exciting. Buckle your seat belts.


Predictably I fell down a Ronettes internet hole after finishing Ronnie Spector's biography. Number one on my hit list at the moment is this fabulous necklace from EC One which I featured on Retro To Go this week.



I spent a long time looking up all of Ronnie's more recent collaborations which included this rather lovely 'Ode to LA' done for a band I'd almost completely forgotten about - The Raveonettes. I've enjoyed rediscovering their contemporary interpretations of the 60s girl group sound.


Onto another female heroine. I was delighted to see Cher Horowitz named Coveteur of the Year. For more teen movie nostalgia, my old pal @housetoastonish pointed me towards the Beyond Clueless kickstarter project: teen movies PLUS Summer Camp. Oh my.



New year, new projects right? The gorgeously twee cover of the 50th edition of Frankie made me want to pick up my needle again. I'm looking forward to starting back at my clothesmaking class next week, and also doing a couple of textile printing sessions later in the month.


There are always fresh clothes to lust over. I love the crazy cats that grace the Peter Jensen for People Tree collection (though can't help thinking his soldier print is a touch too Boden - what do you think?).



Finally, it's always great to discover new blogs. The above image comes from the gorgeous Candy Pop, found through Lobster and Swan. THIS is what I want my dressing table to look like, rather than the cluttered mess you can see in any shots I take in front of my mirror.


And the gorgeous Katie-Louise Ford, found through Yours Truly. She's got one of the most inspiring wardrobes I've seen for a long time, and I'm lusting over the House of Eliott worthy bob. I'm looking forward to reading more from all these ladies over the coming year.

    1. Isn't it just? I'm filing it away in a kind of 'things that are great and I want to do something similar to but I don't know what yet' box.
