Band Tees and Docs

It's been ages since I wanted to do this post, but I just couldn't sit down and do it, no idea why. It was like when you have to do your homework and you think "I'll do it today" and even though you mean it, you just don't do it. Now I don't want to compare blogging and homework, because there's a hell of a difference! But well, I was very lazy this month. I didn't do half of the things I intended to do; whether it was blogging or getting up on the weekend. 
In spite of everything, here are my London-purchases: band tees and Docs, as advertised.




JOY DIVISION - UNKNOWN PLEASURES


I know, probably every second person on this planet owns an Unknown Pleasures t-shirt, but I don't care. Joy Division were awesome!!



GUNS N' ROSES - APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION


Appetite for Destruction is one of those albums where every track on it is simply perfect! I love G n' R in general, but Appetite for Destruction is doubtless the best album! 



SEX PISTOLS - GOD SAVE THE QUEEN


I know, I've said that before but I love Johnny Rotten! I just had to have that t-shirt! 
Major-Sex-Pistols-crush!!!!



DOC MARTENS




I never knew actually, that Dr. Martens made t-shirts like that as well. I know that they have a lot of black and white tees... I think it's just a t-shirt. I think I liked it because it looks as if someone had just randomly written conversations on expensive oil paintings like "Come on, just a quick feel". 


I've wanted a pair of silver Docs for sooooo long now and I'm more than happy to announce that I finally am their proud owner! In comparision to my other Docs, they're much more comfortable, because they're softer, so I did't get any blisters when I wore them for the first time.
I'm so in love with this colour, I can't even describe how much!

If you hadn't guessed it yet, yes, I am crazy about Docs!

LONDON CALLING

Last week, over half term break, I went to London to meet my boyfriend. Not only is London a great city, but I also hadn't seen him in 2 entire months! We didn't do many tourist-things, apart from Madame Tussauds, because I had insisted on going there! But I'll come back to that later! We also went to Camden Town, but in the evening, so I havent taken any photos, Covent Garden and a couple other places. Most of the time we were actually walking for hours just wandering around. I prefer doing that than queing for tourist attractions, because you get a more real impression of a place, than only these pretend-things. But everybody should visit what they like, that's just my opinion.
If I had to desribe the things we bought it would definitely be BAND TEES AND DOCS. Actually both of us only bought that. To be honest not even I was in a mood for excessive shopping that week! (Surprise, surprise). But I'll do a seperate post on my London-purchases!
Here are some of the photos I've taken, the only not-blurry ones (which are still a bit blurry)!


Madame Tussauds



As you can maybe tell, I'm a big fan of old movies, and Breakfast at Tiffany's and Psycho are two of my favourites, so these are definitely the best photos I took at Madame Tussauds. I also have one with Alfred Hitchcock, but I was laughing so hard, I look scary as hell!

Hard Rock Café



I know Hard Rock Cafés are as stereotyped as any other sight, but I love them anyway! They play the best music and serve divine food! Also I love the items they display! I find it better than any museum to look at all the band stuff! When it comes to stuff like Johnny Rotten's clothes, I fangirl like a twelve-year-old! But hey, we all have our weaknesses, don't we? At that point, I just have to say how much I love Johnny Rotten! I actually prefer him singing with the Sex Pistols than with Public Image Ltd.. But no doubt, he's awesome!

Carnaby Street




Doc Martens seriously are the best shoes ever in my eyes. I got my first pair about a year ago and I still love them. Also, I got my third pair last week! I'll post something about them in my next post as well. On that picture as you can clearly see, I'm not wearing my new ones. Actually I still haven't worn them yet. I'm always like that. It takes me at least a week to wear new stuff I bought. I know, that sounds silly, but I just can't help it! But I will wear them tomorrow! Can't wait!

Unfortunately, these are the only photos I liked enough to upload. Hope you enjoy them!
