Loving LORDE

Hey friends. Hope your week is rolling right along swimmingly. For those of you who attended the Cleveland Food Banks Taste of the Browns, I hope you had as much fun as I did. What a wonderful, very organized, fundraiser. Guess who won her silent auction bid of margaritas, chips, salsa and guac for twelve peeps at El Carnicero? Yep… this girl! I am so thrilled to be able to give to such a worthwhile cause while having the opportunity to plan a fiesta with friends. Looking forward to it!

Have you heard? There are still a few tickets available to next weeks Lorde concert at Jacobs Pavillion at Nautica, Wednesday, Sept. 24th. I am so excited to experience this artist’s show I can barely wait.  Made big by Royals, this mysterious beauty is like no other. Her electronica, pop-rock style can somehow be described as a mash up between Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks mixed with a dash of Prince and some Kanye beats…let’s just say she’s one of a kind.

Once you’ve secured your tickets, it’s time to get in the Lorde spirit…just a couple of things that might get you psyched up for the show or maybe even a Lorde sighting around the 216….a girl can dream can’t she?

> This 17 yr old fashionista loves to rock vintage fashion. If I were going to hit up a few vintage stores in hopes to catch a glimpse of the beauty or to find something special to wear to the show I might swing by Suite Lorain, Deering Vintage or Flower Child for some unique concert threads.

> According to this two time Grammy winner’s Instagram feed she loves a good bowl of ramen. Perhaps a visit to Noodlecat or the new Ninja City would be a yummy place for a pre-show, slurpy dinner?

> The girl has the best long, curly hair and funky manicures I’ve ever seen. Looking to get dolled up “Lorde-style” pre-show? A visit to Zen Metro Spa or Honeycomb Salon will do the trick. I hope she rocks one of those funky braid wreaths in her hair…perhaps that’s how I will fix my mop for the show too…hmmm?

> Last but not least, one thing I always look to Lorde for is her signature dark lipstick. I’m not sure it would look good on me (I’m more of a bright salmon lip kinda girl) but if I was looking for more of the goth-styled lipstick, tights or boots, I would head directly to the Mission Boutique in Lakewood. Lots of dark lip stains and more to choose from.

Whatever your style is you’ve got to see Lorde perform live. It’s going to be a visually gorgeous show, her style is not to be missed and her music is magical. To get your tickets to this almost sold out show visit Live Nation’s site and grab your seats NOW!
