It’s spring! Well sort of….there’s a bit of sun and I don’t need to wear gloves, hats and wooly scarves anymore. Anyway it means that normal people start wearing spring clothes: lighter fabrics, brighter colours, floral prints, etc. But all I can think of is that I desperately, utterly, immediately need a pair of black leather shorts…….
I’m afraid that finding the right pair will be a “mission impossible”. I don’t want the “gay bar” type of shorts, they shouldn’t be too oversized and they should have the perfect fit. But I’m not going to give up! Look how great these shorts are!

Went to see De Staat yesterday. It was really good!
And ofcourse I took pictures:

I think my Grandma has a really good taste in decorating her home!
What do you think?
Once upon a time there was an eighties actress named Molly Ringwald. She always played brilliant roles in cool teenage movies like The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink. If you haven’t seen these movies, shame on you!
Anyway, I had to think of her when I was listening to the hot new band of the moment: The Virgins. The Virgins make excellent eighties pop music. A bit like Franz Ferdinand, but more poppy and less ‘arty’. The Virgins make the perfect soundtrack for any Molly Ringwald movie!
They are a band from New York City and formed in 2005. They’ve had one self-titled album out in 2008 (with a chewing gum cover to match their bubblegum pop). Some facts: Rolling Stone magazine voted their song “Rich Girls” as one of the best 100 songs of 2008, model Jessica Stam was seen wearing their T-shirt backstage at a Lanvin show and their songs have been used on the tv-show Gossip Girls.
They’re playing at the Paradiso, Amsterdam on the 11th of April and at Rotown, Rotterdam on the 12th of April. And, if you happen to be in London and plan to go to the Camden Crawl festival, they’re also playing there.
