show was super-fun. really small crowd but the energy was way up and the dancing was fantastic.

if you don't know any of these bands, change that immediately.

2nd AngloMania Post of the Day

Yes, I definitely have AngloMania today. Maybe its the gray, rainy (Londonesque) weather. Or maybe it's my love for Punk Rock and the current library selection, London's Burning by Dave Thompson.

Regardless. I really want these Doc Martens 1460s:

Doc Martens 1460 Union Jack

The Union Jack toebox is just IRRESISTIBLE! Looking down on my little flag-toed feet would make me smile.

I already have a pair of white 1460s, but these might need to be my next boot purchase.

So kids. Do you love these boots? Hate them? Love the UK? Hate bad teeth?

[1460 Black Smooth, #841711004 available from the Doc Martens US Online store]

Sweetest Goodbye

I'm still not over the loss of Alexander McQueen.

But he did leave a gorgeous last collection behind.

A few of my favorite looks:

McQueen AW10 RTW

McQueen AW10 RTW

McQueen AW10 RTW

Do you think he knew that he would be leaving this world? And that this collection would be his last testament to those he left behind?

There are no words. I will let the clothes speak for him.
