sheer frills.



(sheer blouse- all saints, jeans- cheap monday (purchased in stockholm), shoes- Office, pearls- Mallorca, brooch- Vivienne Westwood)

I guess if I had planned to do my hair like this- it would have never worked!
I simply tied my hair in a ponytail, clipped it on top of my head, then looked in the mirror and thought- cute-that looks like a bow, (so on removing the huge monster clip, replacing it with kirby grips, and a bit of looped over hair) - taa daa... this hair bow was born! Somehow I think it adds a bit of 1940's glamour to my outfit? Katie.xxx
