When, singer, Florence Welch hit the scene in the early 2010’s with her band, The Machine, the fashion world collectively breathed a collective sigh of relief.

Florence Welch fashion crush

There had been almost a starvation for a band with a beautiful, yet fashion forward front woman reminiscent of the days of No Doubt and Blondie. Practically overnight, the fiery red head, who hails from Camberwell, London, England, was scooped up by almost every major fashion house, having performed at the Chanel runway show in 2012 as well as having Gucci design the wardrobe for her 2011 summer tour.  This would subsequently result in a long relationship with the house of Gucci as she has become a muse for Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele.

Despite all of the fashion press, Florence Welch + The Machine were still relatively unknown. Welch had had somewhat of a turbulent childhood, having had the traumatic experience of watching her grandmother commit suicide. By age fourteen she picked up a drinking habit and was known to frequent wild parties. Fortunately, Welch was able to kick the habit, and despite being diagnosed with dyslexia, was able to do well in school.  She would later drop out of the Camberwell College of Arts to focus on her music career. In 2009, Florence and her band, The Machine released their debut album, Lungs, which debuted at number seventeen on the UK charts.  By 2011, they were already creating a buzz in the music world, having had two successful albums.   The latter of which debuted at number one on the UK albums chart.  A song from this album would eventually be used in the soundtrack for Snow White and the Huntsman.  After releasing the single Sweet Nothing with Calvin Harris, Welch would receive her first Grammy nomination for Best Dance Recording.

In recent years, Welch has had much success apart from her band.  She’s collaborated with Lady Gaga on a song for Gaga’s latest album, and also put her vocals to use on the Wonder Woman soundtrack. You can still find her beasting every red carpet event she attends and as the brand ambassador for Gucci, you can be assured she’ll most likely be the best dressed.

About F&W Style

Alexandria started her passion for fashion at age ten, assisting her mom at her Fashion Design Studio in Nigeria. That is where she learned about design and running a fashion business.  At age thirteen her family moved from Nigeria to Atlanta and Alexandria started her modeling career.  Through modeling she fell in love with the glamour of the industry; but realized that most women including her could not afford the luxurious accessories that she modeled in magazines. She set out to change that, and F&W Style Handbags was born.

“In our 9years in business we have steadily grown our brand. We have been featured in magazines including Vogue and Essence, our handbags have been worn by celebrities including A-List star Gabrielle Union. We have also been able to build a large social media following that love our growing brand. We are so excited to continue our growth and become part of the Macy’s family”- Alexandria Alli

It’s no secret that you can tell a lot about a person by the kind of shoes they wear. So it goes without saying that choosing the kind of shoes that best match your personality is the perfect way to give people a great first impression of you. There is some importance of choosing a pair of shoes.

Here’s our guide on how to choose a pair of shoes that matches your personality.

1. Keep it simple with sneakers

If you’re the kind of person that values function over form, then you’re probably getting around town in your trusted pair of sneakers. Sneakers are the go to for people who want to be comfortable, but who are also on their feet a lot during the day. Choosing sneakers are easy when you check out the reviews at https://bestshoes.reviews. Wearing sneakers shows that you’re low maintenance and understated, yet active and easy going.

2. Get noticed in some pumps

If you want to be noticed in your day to day routine, you’ll be wearing pumps. Some say that the higher the heel on your pumps, the more heads you will turn. Pumps give off a feminine charm and give great definition to your calf muscles, but they’re not for everyone. In order to pull off wearing a heel, you require confidence and grace and you won’t mind the occasional discomfort.

3. Be graceful in ballet flats

Ballet flats have become all the rage in the past ten years and for good reason. Not only are they extremely comfortable, but they are far easier to walk in than pumps, and even more convenient than wearing sneakers. You can just slip them on and away you go. The flats-wearer is unimposing yet likes to feel feminine.

4. Be dominant in boots

Boots are strong and practical, with uses ranging from protection in wet weather and work situations, to support and function. If you’re into wearing boots, then you have a dominant personality and there’s nothing that can get in your way. If you want to show off your independence and command respect from people, then consider boots as your shoe choice.

5. Be casual in sandals

If you’re not caring what people think and you just want to feel free and easy, then sandals are the way to go. Sandals are great for quick trips out to the store, or for wearing when the weather is hot, but their real value comes in situations where other shoes just don’t cut it. For instance, a walk on the beach would be terrible in pumps or boots! Choose sandals if you don’t care what people think and just want to be yourself.

Shoes say a lot about your personality, and it can be important to pick a shoe that can make a lasting impression on others. Each shoe type portrays certain characteristics, and choosing the right one can be a laborious task. Use our guide the next time you go shoe shopping and you’ll find the right shoe for your personality.
