Madchester part 2

April 3, 2013

Part 2 of last Saturday’s adventure in Manchester! I hope you enjoy it.

Funny how simple things like splashes of neon colour can be so inspiring and eye catching!

Who knew that rats could play music?

I would never go on that ride. I’m brave but I have my limits!

Details of what I wore: Skirt and Jacket – H&M, via Ebay, Stripy turtleneck – Zara, Stripy Cardi and Piano scarf – H&M, Shoes – Office via Ebay, Bag – Target, Half gloves – Ebay, Brooch – Vintage, from the vintage market in Brussels (I still need to post those photos!)

Here are the photos of the main attraction of the trip (for me at least). this is an exhibition of photographs by Kevin Cummins of Morrissey and The Smiths, throughout the years. Perfect for someone like me who loves Morrissey and the Smiths since I was a wee kid. You can still see it until the end of this week, more details here. I wish I had some money lying around to buy some copies! I had to make do with the exhibition poster, which I will have framed for my future apartment.

After all this we were freezing and just took refuge at the train station, to have a hot drink and make time for our train back. It was a lovely day out. Next week I will be visiting Curtise of The Second Hand Years in Sheffield and I can’t wait!

    Now that’s something I’d like to go to since I might not get tickets to see the David Bowie’s one after all..
    Jesus hates you – One of the coolest pictures you have here, your eye for detail never fails to amaze me, well done 🙂
    The picture of the rats playing would turn a very nice frame on my wall, uhm!
    Lastly, I am of the opinion that you should smile more often, you look happy 🙂
