Current Loves

Pretty Things - Parachute (1970) Until a year or so ago I had never listened to any later Pretty Things material, I've always loved the Get the Picture album, and their mid 60s heavy r&b sound. Then my fella suggested I listen to Parachute and I still just can't get enough, it captures perfectly the mix of psychedelia and heavy rock of late 60's London. Most people rave about their earlier album SF Sorrow, which is very good but this album is their greatest offering in my opinion.

Sarah Moon - Pirelli Calendar (1972) The set of photos shot by Sarah Moon for the 1972 Pirelli calendar have to be one of my favourite sets of images, I just adore the soft focus, feminine sexiness. Click on the title to go to a flickr stream featuring the entire set.

Cloverfield (2007) This may seem like a strange choice compared to the rest of the post, and I know from talking to others that have seen this film it really gets a divided opinion, but I am a big Lost fan and got this because of the JJ Abrams connection, and oh my I was on the edge of my seat the whole time, it is such an exciting film and an innovative concept.

Terry De Havilland - Milly Wedges Ok so I am always lusting TDH shoes, but these are my most favourite style available currently and I love the colours and think the work so well with vintage and modern outfits. However, they aren't cheap at £400, but are so delicious and iconic, they will last forever. Roll on the sales!

I'm obsessed with TDH too even though the prices are insane (especially once you put them into dollars)- I've had some good luck on Ebay though so you should look there.

I also love all of Sarah Moon's work- so sumptuously sexy and evocative.
