Amy, Amy, Amy....


Hello Readers,

So this blog is really important yet hard for me to write.

Today is the day last year that I learnt that Amy Winehouse had passed away and it was a very dark day for me as I was such a huge fan of her and I will always regret never seeing her live.

As I have said before there was a soulful quality of her voice that will never be replicated - though I'm sure many will try. Back to Black is my go to album for just about every moment in time. I love it and, despite the fact she herself didn't like it, I also love Frank - especially Stronger Than Me which is the song for every empowered woman out there.

She was iconic and as a true icon should she has inspired fashion and culture forever. John Paul Gaultier's A/W 12-13 was a slightly controversial homage to the star and you only have to walk down Camden High Street and you'll see the very soul of Amy everywhere, I spent a week working there and I felt somehow closer to her.

Amy, its been a year since you died and I still feel the same sadness I did then. Thank you for writing two great albums and making such an impact in your time, even though it was cut short much to soon.

Luv,

LDN Teenage Fashionista xx♥
