BRAIDS AND FOLKY FLORALS


 I bought a seventies vintage dress in a floral pattern with a slavic-ish twist.

 Wore it with folky braids.

(And double earrings, as I couldn't decide which coloured pair to choose.)

To get the braids huge enough (the bigger the better you know) I twined in some extra hair to them.
The whole thing wouldn 't hurt with a couple of big flowers to go along on top but I'll save that for some warm sunny day later this year.

The dress is from Love Miss Daisy and the red lace up boots I cam upon on Sammydress. (You might know I've had the idea of such a very long time and here they are now.) My earrings are by Frollein von Sofa.

You look so beautiful! Do you think you could make a tutorial on how to braid hair like that? I think my hair is long enough but I just never figured out how to do it!

Angela H : perhaps, but it is rather easy - you just make two braids on eau ide of the ear and fold them up and pin in place :) I press/twist the ends slightly under one and other.

I like that outfit so very much. You're looking very sweet and traditional one the one hand but somehow vintagey on the other. I wish I would be as skillful as you to be able to make that braids because my hair should be long enough.(I only go to the hairdresser once a year at Easter time.) Great idea to use two earrings at the same time. They're super cute. Hardly surprising because they're from Frollein von Sofa. Wish you a happy weekend with not too much work.
