Cooler weather is settling in. I like scarves and layering so it’s not all bad while we still have some sunlight and dry weather. It’s time to plan a vacation for sometime in January or February to have a getaway from the rain and something to look forward to!
Found this sweet score at the thrift shop, $10 for a Tony Birch purse.

Tickets to an intimate Lily Allen show went on sale months ago. They sold out almost immediately and I lost all hope of getting a chance to go. A week ago, on a whim I decided to check online for tickets and it turned out there were a half dozen people selling, some at below cost so I was able to snap up a pair!
We got there early enough to check out Lolawolf, I thought the singer looked like Zoe Kravitz but what I didn’t realize is that it was Zoe Kravitz! Their show was modest and low key, they have great style and lighting. I really got into their slower deeper sounds and breathy vocal. A few songs had a hard beat that didn’t seem to fit the energy as well, but that could have just been the sound in The Commodore. Definitely will be listening to their debut album. Check out one of their songs here.
Lily did not disappoint. She had high energy, danced and joked with the crowd. Even pulled out some dance moves on Sheezus and Hard Out Here. Best of the night had to be Everyone’s At It, great bass shaking the room and playful dance moves from Lily. I grabbed a couple blurry screencaps but mostly was too busy dancing and enjoying the show.

Cute dreamy indie band Beach House came to my town last week for two shows and I was quite fortunate to see them perform at Venue. The music was lovely and melodic. They are quite talented musicians, I didn’t realize listening to the albums that the violin sounding high notes on Wild were made with Alex’s guitar. Where I was seated I leaned far over a railing for the entire song, mesmerized. Also in the live show Beach House has prominent drum beats permitting many songs. It gave the songs more danceability which was a pleasant surprise. They also played for a solid 90 minutes.
Although I listen to their music often, I’m not certain of the song titles. There wasn’t a set of the Vancouver show online but I believe it was similar to this set in Calgary.
P.S. Also they have great style.
Black isn’t usually my thing, but I am a huge fan of this flowy dress/top. The silver scarf and floral shoes kept me from feeling depressed.
