The crown and the glory...

Thursday, February 23, 2012

This months Take Ten challenge was a fun one to style, Crown and Glory is a handmade accessory brand started and solely run by the lovely Sophie. She creates dreamy fairytale-esque hair pieces from turbans, hair pins and hair garlands. For this challenge we all picked different pieces some available already online, some bespoke through her bespoke service on etsy.
I chose this very pretty floral hair garland aptly named 'Skipping through meadows' floral crown.
Again I managed to luck out on a sunny day and wanted an equally summery and floral outfit to match my floral crown... this is how I styled it.

  1. Gorgeous outfit! I dont know what it is about the cold that makes us all wear black and other grim dark colours but it's always so refreshing when people go out in pretty bright happy colours :)

  7. I just saw your pic on Where is Harriet? and I love it - with the hair garland, dress and print of that jacket, I feel like you should be doing a peace sign with your fingers and living in a 60s/70s commune : )
