florence w by vivalalixi florence w by vivalalixi
I'll kiss you once for life
I'll kiss you twice for death
I'll hold you close for comfort
wearing my best dress.

-Florence + the Machine

i love florence, i love LOVE florence. she's so dark and sweet, and not in a diabetes inducing sort of way. just right. i can't imagine not listening to her songs. if i become a designer one day, i'd die to have her as my client /realitycheckprz.

obviously inspired by the song, as to why i didn't choose black, it's cuz i didn't think she was outwardly mourning or anything, quite the opposite on the contrary.

i chose a butterfly concept, since i closely relate it to death and the afterlife, and even if the song may not literally mean dying, the concept is still present, such as when one ends a relationship. it also has this metamorphosis thing in it. made it really flowy too, cuz that's what her trademark. sorta.

LOL, totes random, but any guitarist or what.ev living in melb area who wants to jam? :> i can sing... kind of. but no one i know who plays is into florence+machine kind of alt songs ;v;

Wish I could meet and jam :3

What song is the Florence + the Machine from??? btw I'm currently listening to 'Never Let Me Go'. This outfit makes me think of that song, strangely enough! =D

This is so utterly gorgeous, I think you've captured the essence of Florence's style perfectly in this costume. I'm from melb too and jam on the guitar all the time, is the offer still standing? XD
