A couple weeks ago I went to see Beach House at the Riviera. It was every bit as heavenly and sublime as you would expect - and then some! I was particularly struck by how marvelous Victoria Legrand's vocals sounded live, how her booming voice filled up the entire theater, how her voice sounds just the same as it does on records. The lighting was especially magical, with soft colors and fog machines creating sunsets and dawn, and twinkling lights that were stars. I had really high hopes and was almost certain I'd be disappointed, but was not! It was absolutely one of the more moving shows I've been to in a while.
As I have mentioned before, whenever I go to shows I like to dress like how the bands sounds as a way to connect myself to the experience! In this case I chose to focus on how regal their music is. Like how majestic and cinematic their songs are, but still sounding familiar and comforting - like an object you've loved forever. All clothes are vintage, shoes are Prada and were an ebay find.
This dress was probably an old prom gown? Removing the skirt and keeping the tulle lining intact is really great DIY. The sequins are actually a zip-back top that I've never actually worn as a top - it looks better worn backwards as a vest! Karen Smith inspo everrrryday. Lace and sequins are a pretty unbeatable combination.
Have you guys been to any rad shows lately? Do tell...
