On Tuesday night I was the second of the bloggerati (Gemma and MJ have been/are also going) to go and see Florence & The Machine, who for anyone who knows barely anything about me will know, IS MY IDOL. I'm utterly in love with her music, her band and obviously her wardrobe. This was my 5th time at a gig of hers and the first time I heard Ceremonials live, so you will imagine I was pretty darn excitabubble.
The set design was clearly Art Deco-inspired, which with her latest image of 20s siren seemed to fit perfectly. In terms of Flo's outfit herself, she kinda reminded me of a cross between a bat (see cape) and an italian bull fighter (see underneath the cape). She's never been afraid to dare to dress experimentally, with her signature red hair a little darker than usual the tone of the gig was decidely more sombre and gothically (?) atmospheric than the earlier shows I'd been to. With a male harpist (much to the appreciation of my friend Andy) and a gospel backing group, her backdrop was spectacular.
And here is meeee, looking oh so excited and happy just before she came on stage. I'm wearing a vintage floral midi skirt from ASOS marketplace, my well-loved leather gilet and a black satchel from H&M. Understated, yeahh..
