Fit for a Princess

Instagram can be a dangerous place. One moment you’re catching up with the 20 different cats you follow and commenting on your friend’s baby pictures, and then BAM! There is an add for beautiful sparkle things. How is a girl supposed to defend herself? I am very susceptible to beautiful merchandise, especially when it’s well photographed and already tagged with the line “pretty things”. This weekend saddled me with another tab in my “bookmarks”, Erica Elizabeth Designs.

 Now, technically these items are billed as “wedding accessories” but I think there are plenty of non-matrimonially related reasons to want a tiara. You know, something important like a Tuesday or going to brunch. 
It was difficult for me to decide which photos to share with you guys, everything on the site is stunning, but I found myself gravitating towards the floral pieces that reminded me of spring, with a few celestial inspired items thrown in there for variety. Actually, If I were pressed to pick a favorite, I think for once the flowers would lose. That piece with crescents and the stars? It’s giving me some wonderful art nouveau flashbacks, and I have visions of wearing it with inky indigo gowns and some silver shimmer dusted on my cheekbones…..

Which one is your favorite?

Modern Day Princess

One of the current fashion trends I can really get behind is hair jewelry. As many of you know, I am queen of the flower crown and have been known to don a tiara or two, so while this isn’t a huge change for me, it does making blinging out my tresses much easier. One company that’s really bringing its “A” game is Lelet NY.

Lelet has everything from elaborate crowns to elegantly gilded bobbie-pins. So you can go big statement or just a little something special.Lelet7I also really liked that their pieces are great for mixing and matching.

Absolutely gorgeous; it makes me wish my hair were longer! I think these pieces would be the ultimate accessory/accessories for a wedding, date night, random Tuesday…you get the idea. 😉


Holiday Sparkle For Your Tresses

Thanksgiving is not really known for its sparkle -that’s much more of a Christmas or New Year’s Eve kind of thing-, but I recently discovered that  Free People has some truly stunning hair jewelry available this holiday season. I would be willing to don a turkey day tiara, perhaps starting a new trend. After all, it would be alliterative. Here are a few of my favorite pieces.

I think that a few of these, while gorgeous, are sedate enough to blend in at the dinner table. So what’ll be? Flowers? Geodes? Maybe a little of both?
