Coves + Band of Skulls

So there I was, sat in my bedroom, finishing off some French translations and a message comes through on Facebook from CovesYou're ON! With a photo pass! Suddenly it's all stations go, checking my batteries, packing my camera bag and slinging a vintage Levi's jacket over my shoulders to fend off the cold. And then I'm sat on the next train into Manchester, nerves starting to set in as this is my first ever pass into the photographers' pit and I'd really rather I didn't mess it up.

Luckily my limited experience of photographing local gigs paid off and I'm pretty chuffed with how the photographs turned out (especially given that the Ritz likes to use a hell of a lot of backlighting!). A massive thank you to the fantastic Coves for sorting out the pass for me, and for being such a brilliant support to Band of Skulls, who of course were amazing too.

Vintage Blazer / Gap Shirt / Cambridge Satchel Company Satchel / Elle Leather Look Skinny Jeans / Jones Loafers

So this is the blazer I was talking about the other day. Carrying my satchel as a blutch because that's what all the cool kids do these days (ask Garance, okay!). Also I'm slowly learning how to wear lipstick and remember that I'm wearing it so that it doesn't end up smeared across my chin / forehead / basically anywhere but my lips. So yeah, a hint of berry on my lips it is. Berry? But spring's just arriving? Yeah yeah, you try telling the weather Up North that.

Dad's Bow Tie (similar here) / Whistles Patti Leather Biker Jacket (similar here) / Mango Chiffon Shirt (similar here) / Topshop Leigh Skinny Jeans (here) / Deena & Ozzy Heeled Chelsea Boots (similar here)

On Thursday I went on a gander around town with my friend Harrison and managed to snap up some black spray paint (for use in my quest to a monochrome bedroom) and a £2 vintage blazer. We also came across this most marvellous painted bit of wall, which was a must for shooting a Lookbook post in front of.
