My music icon Match made in Seven

My music icon

This months theme is chosen by me and is called: My music icon! Can you guess who mine is?

Welcome to the monthly edition of  Match made in Seven! We are a international group of fashion bloggers who meet once a month. One of us chooses a theme in turn, and that can be anything. A book, music, a color, a movie. And then we style an outfit based on that theme. It’s fun to collaborate with other fashion bloggers! Don’t forget to visit my blogger friends and see how they interpreted the theme of this month!

My music icon for 40 years!

Those of you who know me a little bit by now, and I am a, what you see is what you get person, know that I am a big fan of The Cure. We have seen them several times, this year on Pinkpop. I have been a fan since I first heard A Forrest on the radio when I was fourteen. I was immediately taken by that song. For me that is still the most beautiful song ever, of all bands! When I see them perform live, I enjoy them with goose bumps on my arm for 3 hours.

So I wanted to do this theme, My Music Icon, for Match Made in Seven, so that I could imitate Robert Smith! Not because I really like his looks, okay the black is okay of course, but because he is my ultimate music icon! I hope I can see them perform live a few times more, because well they also get older don’t they!

    I had to go listen to A Forest on YouTube, I’d never heard it before. In fact, scrolling down a list of “The Cure’s Greatest Hits,” I was surprised by how long they were recording and how many songs I didn’t recognize. I thought they were just like early-mid 80s, you learn something new every day!

    You look great – you could easily wear that outfit just as a normal look!

    Wow, Nancy, you made us all work pretty hard on this one! I honestly thought there would be a couple Country Western icons but no way! Here you are channeling an alternative rocker!! I love it! Your outfit is perfect, too! Well done challenge, my friend!

    I love “A Forest” – my first exposure to the Cure was in the early 80s, when “Standing on the Beach” came out.

    Your hair is perfect for Robert Smith, Nancy! Love it! Rock on, girlfriend!

    It could only have been Robert Smith, it was the hair which gave it away ๐Ÿ˜‰ I fell in love with The Cure’s first album, which I played on repeat on my old cassette player. But The Forest must be my favourite too, such a hauntingly beautiful song! xxx

      Haha, yes! My favorite albums are Seventeen Seconds and Faith! Sometimes I can’t even listen to their songs as they make me so emotional!

  10. 28th August 2019 / 18:22

    I don’t know The Cure but I do know that you look amazing in this all-black outfit! Super cool, Nancy! I need to look up that song.

    That’s a great Robert Smith impression. I loved (love) The Cure. They were one of my ALL TIME favorite bands. My daughter Lauren listens to them now and I’m loving it.

    Hi Nancy
    I love so much music, it would be tough to choose! I love that you are a fan of The Cure and this outfit is sweet! I sometimes wish I could wear all black and it wouldnt totally wash me away! I love this outfit from the boots to the jacket, music chic!
