Things The Like might like

It’s official – I don’t just LIKE The Like, but I LOVE The Like.  I don’t want to sound like some kind of sad groupie because I actually think their music is only so-so (they’re one of those bands that you have to see live to GET what it’s all about).  However, what I love about them, is their sense of very innocent, folksy, slightly fairy-ish style.  I don’t think highly of too many music artists in terms of style but The Like get it spot on.  I’m not sure whether it’s their palette of creams, taupes, whites with a dash of black that feels so seasonally right.  Or the fact that they mix it up with their textures or continually favour vintage over anything else.  Either way, it’s all lovable and here are some of my picks from around the web that The Like might like, or at least stuff for people who are feeling inspired by this charming trio.

    I’m not a particular fan of the music, and their styles are only so-so in my opinion. Perhaps I’ve just seen too many magazine articles on their amazing styles and great music. I feel that both are a bit overhyped, but some of the stuff you’ve shown here is quite nice.

    I saw The Like last week, supporting Phoenix. I thought they seemed sweet girls and were wearing cute outfits! Their music is not particularly my thing though – very 90s indie.
    Am liking your picks too. I have been thinking about buying those white Topshop slingbacks for a while….

    the like’s music is alright, but they always look good. even their photo shoots are given the romantic, vintagey feel. they are very cute girls- i love the items you’ve shown here in this vein.

    I’m pretty sure they’d love these too:

    Personally, I’m not sure how I feel about those babies; they’re a tad too prissy and pristine for me to wear often and too expensive to only wear for special occasions, yet I find myself looking them up at least once every time I go online.
    I think it’s the phrase ‘laser-cut patent leather lace with smooth patent leather trim ‘ that does it for me.

    HI Dani, Unfortunately, the scans were from Above magazine, an old issue which I threw away long time ago. And I never saved the scans either…….
    Sorry!
