Florence & the Machine, The Sequin Queen

Besides artists using their musical talents to fork their independence in the industry, their sense of style not only reflects their genre of music but also sets them apart from other artists. Florence and the Machine is one of those artists that uses her flashy vibrant style and soulful vocals to attract the audience. She definitely caught our eyes, with her signature sequin attire. Not only does she look posh in her shimmery sequin, but also it accentuates her stage presence by glistening an array of colors with every swing of the hips. As you can tell by past posts we are sequin fiends, because it has the ability to make a simple outfit elaborate without the need to overly accessorize. Florence and The Machine is the queen of looking glamorous in her sequin getups yet balances her look with less accessories to achieve that melodramatic demeanor.

If you are a Kate Nash or Feist fan, her grindcore inspired sound is right in your element. She released a few EPs such as ‘Kiss With a Fist’, ‘Dog Days are Over’, and ‘Girl With One Eye’ which are all undeniable sweet. She has spunk and sass that isn't overbearing, which is why Florence and The Machine is our style icon and Sequin Queen!

Ca$hin' the Catwalk

As some of you may know, Recycled Runway is styling and directing a fashion show this Saturday, April 11th for "Red Tie Events". In order to afford all of our thrift store goodies for our models and other essentials for networking, we decided throw a fundraiser extravaganza last weekend suitably named, "Cashin' the Catwalk". Thanks for all the support from everyone: DJNA who rocked the house, DanielYoon Photography for a photobooth and roaming photos, ShawnySlick for helping decorate and design our crib, and all of you who attended and helped support! We had loads of fun and met our financial goal (and more) for our runway! Thanks everyone!!!!!

The Cherry on Top

Most of the time the key to thrifting or vintage shopping is accessorizing. You won't always find that rare, elaborate piece that you're looking for, in which case you must liven it up with other elements to fully grasp the extravagance of your look. Whether it be belts, jewelry, tutus, or even other articles of clothing, sometimes an outfit is just not complete without that little extra ummph. It's the cherry on top of your fashion sundae. And if you're pinching pennies like us, your local thrift is the best place to look to stock up on these goodies. ;)
