Almost Famous

On the weekend I watched a movie called Almost Famous. It's set in the 70s, and is about a very uncool 15 year old boy who wants to be a music journalist. He ends up going on tour with a rock band and I won't say anymore because if you haven't seen it you definitely should and I don't want to ruin any of it for you.

Here's the trailer...


The movie is both funny and heartbreaking, however, this is not what makes it so great. What takes it to the next level is the perfect styling and vintage soundtrack which capture the time of rock and roll in which the movie is set.









Coincidentally, while I was browsing the Nasty Gal website I saw a top which was called the 'Penny Lane Crop Top' (Penny Lane is the name of the main female character in the movie) and a dress called the 'Almost Famous Dress'. Pretty weird right?
