Long Live McQueen.


Alexander (The Great) McQueen CBE
16 March 1969 – 11 February 2010.

I am actually devastated by the news that Alexander (LEE) McQueen passed away today, aged just 40. It’s an absolute shock.

His death was announced this afternoon, 11 February 2010. McQueen was found dead at his London home and paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene. A statement released by his office on 11 February 2010 – referring to the designer by his given first name, Lee, read: “On behalf of Lee McQueen’s family, Alexander McQueen today announces the tragic news that Lee McQueen, the founder and designer of the Alexander McQueen brand, has been found dead at his home.

McQueen’s death comes days before London Fashion Week, although McQueen was not scheduled to show in the British capital.

On 3 February 2010, he wrote on his Twitter page that his mother had died the day before, adding: “RIP mumxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.” Four days later he wrote that he had had an “awful week” but said “friends have been great“, adding: “now i have to some how pull myself together“.

Fashion has lost a legend today and the fashion world will be a less pretty world for it.

Long live McQueen.

Alice has died – I need a new bicycle.

ALICE R.I.P: May 2006- June 2009.

It’s official, my absolutely beautiful little vintage bicycle, also fondly known as Alice, has died. Her chain broke on  a trip to Tesco and because she is an antique no chain is replaceable. Of course I am beyond devastated as she is my pride and joy, however we have decided to keep her as an heirloom and I am now on the search for another bicycle. Alice is also not replaceable and never will be, but alas I must move on, and frankly I can’t afford TFL’s ridic prices, nor can I tolerate their lack of actual transporting. Therefore cycle power it is!

I’m after a little shopper – Alice, to be honest, was a little too big for me, hence why I fell off (I couldn’t touch the floor when I was sat on the saddle), something like the below would be perfect! I’ve got the basket off Alice, so having a basket on the front isn’t a complete necessity; nor is colour because I’m likely to spray paint the new bicycle gold 😀

I can collect from London (and surrounding areas) and can pay cash on collection or you could even have a listing on eBay and I can pay via Paypal and have you send it via courier – whatever is easiest 🙂
