Style Icon | Florence Welch

Longtime readers of my blog will know that there is a particular lady I am very much in love with. She serenaded me throughout my time at university in Sheffield, set the fashion world alight with her penchant for fedoras, and has even influenced my choice of hair colour.

For as long as I have been a blogger, there has been Florence.

I am a big fan in a big way. I've never met the lady, but I've seen her life four times (once even before she was a redhead!). From her early covers of Cold War Kids to her newer, orchestral sound in stadiums, I've followed little Flo from the very start.

She has never failed to inspire me throughout her rise to stardom, and I think that despite her fame now, she still keeps pretty true to her roots - if only on a grander scale. Back at the start when her knees were covered in bruises and she'd sing songs in park using only the railings as percussion, I remember thinking, wow, I wish I was that experimental and weird. Nobody would argue that she's incredibly striking looking, but I never thought of her as classically beautiful, and in my eyes her attitude always reflected the sort of daydreamer I wanted to be too.

I wasn't sure what this post would be become when I started writing it, but I think she deserves pages and pages of admiration on my blog. But, for fear of boring you all away, we'll stick to one, giant, single-post shrine.

  5. I saw her at Paddington station Claire and she looked glam even when she was off duty. Huge hat and sunglasses, very 70s vibe x

  6. Oh Flo, what an absolute babe. I've been massively obsessed with her since the days of Kiss With a Fist, she can do no wrong as far as I'm concerned. I love how bouncy and bubbly she is live, you can tell she's having an absolute whale of a time being on stage and just loves what she does. Plus she has the most incredible wardrobe ever. I'm off on a fan-girl rant now, excuse me whilst I dance around my living room with her incredible voice belting out of my speakers.

  14. I like a bit of Flo. The music world and the creative industry is all the better for having her in it.
