Le.Minimalist: Songstress Style - Florence Welch

Needing no introduction, Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine has garnered the attention of music and fashion lovers alike with her flirty and fiery personality and style to match. You know what they say about red heads, right? 

I remember my first Florence experience - it was one of those epic (although I don't condone the use of this word outside of World of Warcraft chat rooms, it seems appropriate here) moments when a song just pierces through your heart and settles inside the deepest parts of you. I'm speaking, of course, about "Cosmic Love" off of her catchy 2009 album, Lungs.

Everything out of her mouth just meant something to me. Those intense love songs were jarringly haunting; I felt rattled to the core. Every woman who has ever loved and lost has at one time proclaimed "Cosmic Love" as her anthem, I promise.

When she's not busy winning over the hearts of countless romantically forlorn women, she's busy being tasteful and chic. Florence has such a wide array of styles that she incorporates into her day to day looks, it's really quite impressive!

Florence is always going for bold, creative prints - most of which remind me of intricate tapestries or vintage wall-papers. Prints have really taken a trendy turn the last few seasons. Amazing separates, blazers, and my personal favorite incarnation, floral jeans.

These aren't your grandmother's printed separates.

Karl Lagerfeld took notice of the fiery siren and her whimsical, sweet and stylish nature, introducing her "Boticelli Venus style" from inside a massive white clam during the Chanel Spring 2012 Paris Fashion Week runway show. Florence looked like a vision!

Harpers Bazaar also channeled this glowing goddess with an incredible spread, incorporating soft lighting, flowy old Hollywood gowns and an ever so slight bohemian flair. All of my favorite things! Favorite thing overload!
