Once upon a time I was obsessed with Florence and the machine. I had a full week phase of total adoration for the music, playing the album 'Lungs' on constant repeat. Around my head the soulful lyrics echoed and the percussion and drum beats amazed me, then quite shockingly after 7 days I halted my listening. By no means was this intended, it was just simply a reaction to having been totally immersed in all things Flo.
Then in all the same haste In which I first abandoned her did I begin to start my reunion. After listening to 'Between two lungs', 'Howl' & 'Drumming song' I can say that once again I am infatuated. I'm surprisingly glad of this sudden re awaking of my love for Florence and the machine because I know it will be a phase.
Indeed, I've been shopping & flicked through magazines but I've not taken anything in. The utter Chaos and disorder of the last few months have made it impossible for me to actually see enough depth in something to take inspiration from it. Though being the indulgent I am, I've somehow sub consciously chosen the most stressed and unbalancing few months to do this, but I'm not complaining as Chiffon, Lace, Silk & Tulle are ever present in my imagination as of late.
This is my favourite Florence Welsh outfit, It's the whole 'I just through it on' look and the layering effect works so well. Messy hair, coat chucked on.
Though of course her godess, more dramatic outfits will continue to charm me.
