So I went to see Jessie Ware in The Sugar Club in Dublin last Monday and I’m just obsessed. It was the first date of her solo tour so it was really special for her as well as us- she seemed genuinely overwhelmed at the fact we were there to see her and that we actually knew the words to her songs, which made me love her even more. There were even a few technical glitches with sound and microphones etc, but that just added to it.
She looked incredible as well, I absolutely love her style. Known for her trademark up-do and huge earrings combo, she was also wearing these amazing high-waisted, black velvet trousers with a cropped black polar-neck, cropped jacket and chunky black heels. Her look was such a perfect combination of 90’s grunge with a feminine twist, and I loved it so much that when I got home I tore my wardrobe apart looking for a grey, long sleeved polar-neck which I bought last winter but never really wore, and I haven’t had it off me since!
Her voice was so soulful and incredibly powerful, something which I actually don’t think comes across to the same extent on her records- you just have to see her live… She chatted between nearly every song, making the gig so intimate and relaxed; a perfect match to the cabaret-club style venue which had lots of cute tables and candles dotted all over the place. To top it all off she even hung around after to get photos and sign autographs, and this is when I discovered I’d found my hair twin. We could definitely be friends I think!
And for any of you who don’t know her music, watch these videos and you will be converted… She’s going to be huge.
