(Top: Bethany Cosentino for Urban Renewal, Skirt: Camden, Shoes: Topshop, Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters, Bag: Mulberry)

Now, don't get me wrong I love fashion- but as much as I love a good vintage frock and a good pair of worn in Topshop jeans, nothing can quite get in the way of my life-long and ever growing relationship with music (like I've said before, you can't listen to fashion on your iPod ;). Trust me, there is nothing more satisfying than falling in love with your new favourite band, and aspiring to be as cool as the lead singer (makes me wish my failed music lessons at school had paid off...), so as you can imagine, when I heard Bethany Cosentino (leading lady from Cali-cool Best Coast) had teamed up with Urban Outfitters Renewal US to create her own line, inspired by 90s pop culture, Stevie Nicks and 'girls she sees at Best Coast shows' (a girl can dream huh...) I went into 'WANT.NEED.MUST.BUY' mode, and instantly blew my 'no spending' bet with my mum for a slice of the action.

I ended up opting for the 'Liv top' I'm not sure whether it was the uber cool bad-ass collar that sold it to me, or the fact I share the same name with this inanimate garment, but either way it was love (or Liv) at first sight. I teamed it with this polka dot skater skirt and my 'Only Place' sunnies, but I'm sure it will look just as cool with some denim cut offs, Converse and a battered biker jacket, either way, I'm one happy girl...



P.S My incredibly talented best friend Gemma, has made the final of the American Apparel T shirt designing competition! To get her design printed she needs YOUR likes/shares and comments on her photo to win, please spare a second and check it out HERE- she deserves it! Thank you!
