Lana Del Ray | Looks to Love




The highly anticipated Ultraviolence album has finally been released, and to celebrate this event I decided to write today's feature on the talented singer Lana Del Rey.



Lana, also known as Elizabeth Woolridge Grant, stated her career in 2007 when she signed her first recording contract with 5 Points Records. Today she is known as a successful, beautiful, talented songwriter but she didn't get this title over night. It took a lot of work and she literally started at the bottom working hard to get where she is today. Through a struggling time in her her life she went through a alcohol dependency, homelessness, toxic relationships; but still managed to push through and accomplish her dreams. And I admire her drive and dedication.

But enough with the past, let's talk more about her new album! She decided to call this album, ULTRAVIOLENCE. It's her third addition to her others and has 13 original songs which she described as "a little more stripped down but still cinematic and dark". If you're a bit clueless on she means by dark than I highly suggest checking out her first two albums to get and idea on what shes talking about. And let's just say her type of music isn't your averaged Top 40's music, it's deep, meaningful and has a lot of symbolical lyrics. Currently my favorite song on Ultraviolence is West Coast and play it on repeat. On this song her voice is beautiful (as always) and the lyrics are less dark than her usual ones.






   The Perfect Purse   
Lana Del Rey's Casual Outfit

While looking for the "perfect outfit" to feature on this post I realized one thing about Lana, she dresses extremely down to earth in person. Yes, on her magazine covers and music videos she likes to embrace the vintage style but in real life she has a casual laid back, I don't give a crap  what others think type of style. 

Usually shes spotted rocking grudge sneakers, plaid button downs, and my personal fashion favorite, ripped shorts. But in this feature I wanted to showcase her polished style.

Let's start off with her overall outfit then break it down to her main accessories. In this outfit I adore how shes wearing ballet flats with skinny jeans, this combo can sometimes be hard to pull of for petite people, like myself, but since Lana is 5ft 6 shes nowhere near short.

The shoes are from TopShop, and the dark washed jeans are from H&M. Both are under $25, and look very similar to hers. 

Untitled #62Next I decided to incorporate her gold and silver accessories in this look. Most people don't like matching these together but I like the way she did it. For my outfit I added a similar necklace, $16.01 from Asos; Feather Button Earrings, from the Lucky Brand;  a wrist watch from JCPenney, $20; and lastly, a pretty two finger ring

Out of all the item's in her outfit I would have to say I like the C√ČLINE Triptyque Bag the best. This bag is currently sold out online, but you can get a simular on here. This one is less money, only cost $39.99.


Well that's all for this Looks to Love post, I hope you enjoyed it and I can't wait for next Friday because we're doing a special post. So stay tuned for that!
