Day: Thursday. Activity: English essay (bleh), might go on a bit of a shopping spree later (the new Cabot Circus hopping extravaganza opens in my home town today ;]) Fags: 0. Alcohol intake: 0. Money spent: 0 (so far). Indulgence: I've been healthy today, lots of freshly squeezed orange juice! Listening to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ub-Gvmtg1m8
So Basically I just want to enlighten y'all to what you should be doing this Autumn. Nothing will make rainy days more entertaining than the following (especially if you attend them in a fur trimmed Chloe trench and some Gucci biker boots)!
1. Film: Beautiful Loosers
Aaron Rose direct this documentary, which follows the lives and careers of a collective group of Do-it-yourself artists and designers who inadvertently affected the art world. This 90minuit film beautifully demonstrates the lives of modern artists in the 90's, making it one of the most gritty, indie documentary films to reach us for a long time. Anyone who is a fan of modern art should not miss this, and anyone who isn't, I would highly recommend watching it anyway - it is truly enlightening.
2. Exhibition: Cult of Denim
From October 15th - November 14th Selfridges unveils collaboration with Britain’s hottest talent, artist Stuart Semple, in a celebration of the most iconic and historical chapter of fashion: Cult Of Denim – a new collection of artworks on denim .A new collection of original works will be shown for sale in store from mid October alongside a series of specially created limited edition prints on denim, t-shirt graphics, 8 pairs of handpainted jeans, and a glowing diamond shaped installation. For those who love Stuart Semple' work as much as me, this will be a must see.
3. Shopping: Bristol Vintage Fashion Fair
For most Bristolians, this is a can't miss event. Coming around every few months, we cannot resist the vintage goodies at Edwin Dyson' fair. It's next coming around on the 12th of October (t the Anson Rooms on Queens rd, as per usual), with even more vintage lovelies than before. Expect up to 40 stalls of coats, gloves, hats, scarves, all bleedin' sorts of vintage treasures. It is love.
4. Film: Eight Miles High
Eight Miles High is the true story of a German model, Uschi Obermaier, whose lovers included Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Jimi Hendrix.
