Heard this song, “Heaven or Las Vegas” playing in Olive yesterday. I couldn’t think why the voice sounded familiar but have since discovered its the same artist who features on one of my favourite songs “Crew Love” from Drake’s new album- Take Care – Give it a listen here. The Weeknd albums have a very chilled out vibe and are pretty easy listening – Loving the album artwork as well.
On a separate note I bought this beautiful cape in a red colour whilst I was in Olive, as I can’t actually leave that shop without buying something, will try to get a picture up soon if I can take one I like.
Anyway heres the song, no official video unfortunately.
I’ve taken too long to write this post. I think if you know me personally you’ll have been bored to tears already with me banging on about a boutique in Cheltenham called Olive! I even sent my hairdresser there after she kept asking where I had got various item from and she wasn’t disappointed. I literally love it all and if I could, I would probably spend my whole months salary in there. It was only last night when I realised, whilst packing for paris, that 80% of the things I packed were from there. I love it in there for several reasons first of all the stock is always changing, every time you go in there is something new as they only have 1 or 2 of each size and design so things go fast- I like to use to this excuse to cover up my slightly unhealthy impulsive buying habits ” well it wont be hear next week so I need it now”! I love that there is a good mix of classics and on trend pieces, I believe the stock is all mainly sourced from Asia and areas around their so it is not available in any other shops! Nothing worse than seeing somebody in the same Topshop dress on a night out, (face>palm!)
The shop itself is a piece of art, spread over 3 floors; gorgeous stripped back wooden floorboards run throughout, the walls are finished in neutral shades so the product can really stand out. Scattered throughout are old nostalgic items such as an old bikes, redundant type writers, industrial lampshades and old desks used as POS stands. The outfits I’m wearing in the pictures above are both from Olive apart from the belt which is an old one from Warehouse. I shall be putting up a few more outfits with pieces from Olive by the end of the week when I do my Style Diary from Paris! I urge you to go and check it out if you are in the Cheltenham area, or even if your not, it’s on 7 Pitville Street (Around the corner from M&S), I guarantee if you like what you see in the pictures on their Facebook Page and their Blog (which has some beautiful photography) then you will come out of there with something!
