Yesterday, Caitlin and I headed down to Brighton to go to see Dan Croll play an instore session at my favourite Brighton record shops, Resident, in the lanes. My outfit wasn't actually meant to be so mind numbingly boring but I was not at all prepared for the summery weather that greeted us after school, so I had to have a last minute change of plan, hence the completely boring t-shirt and shorts combination that's hardly worthy of a blog post (but hey, this day was fun and i wanted to do some blogging so yeahhhhhhhhhh). We stopped off at Cait's to get changed and pick up some well needed Calippo ice lollies (YES IT'S THIS TIME OF THE YEAR) and got the train straight in.
Caitlin was on a mission to buy a new flannel/plaid shirt so we headed down to our favourite shop for vintage shirts and shorts (both my shirts and shorts in this post I found here) in the Lanes, called To Be Worn Again. If you're ever in Brighton they're worth a visit - they have two shops in the Lanes, full of lovely vintage clothes at pretty decent prices, unlike many Vintage stores. She ended up picking up a grey plaid shirt which I'm SO IN LOVE WITH that only cost a fiver! We also had a mooch around Beyond Retro and I fell in love with THE MOST GORGEOUS DRESS - a black velvet strappy skater style dress that from certain angles and under certain lights looked actually dark green. I fell in love and it fitted perfectly but it was £28 so I sadly left empty handed.
After a walk through the very beautiful, misty Pavilion gardens and a few outfit pictures, we stopped at Cafe Nero for paninis and ice tea, before finally heading down to Resident.
We arrived a little early to secure a place at the front - the store is tiny and being as short as I am I can't really take chances! We were having a chat looking through the records when Dan and his band walked in and started setting up. We tried (and failed) to act casual at the fact that one of our all time favourite musicians was JUST THERE, and the half hour wait before they started was agonizing!
I am majorly in love with Dan's musical style and lyrics, so seeing him perform his album off mic with the band acoustically was amazing. It was even better than anticipated and the rest of the band's harmonies with Dan were incredible! I was literally standing next to them through the whole thing and it was very hard to try and tone down the massive grin on my face.
