Wow. This week was a mess in terms of posting. In the wise words of Anna from Melodic, Thrifty & Chic “Damn, girl. You post so often I can barely keep up!”. Neither could I, Anna, neither could I. I guess my usual schedule is to post outfit stuff Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday with the Celebration Comments on Saturday. Maybe throw in a special post Monday like Makeup with Margarita (which is a new one is coming up soon! Yay!) if I have one ready. But with my trip to Canada, I couldn’t post my Celebration Comments last Saturday and everything got all screwy. So, I apologize.
But this week’s post was on Flower Crowns. I guess I’ve been kind of yes and no on the whole trend. The ones with the huge flowers always seemed so extravagant and a bit funny looking to me. Sort of like someone plopped a spring wreath on one’s head and called it a day. But I do love love love the smaller flowered ones that wind around your head like an actually crown. The ones that make you look like you are a fairy princess or something awesome like that. All summer, I have been dying to make myself a flower crown. I even have two kinds of silk flowers at the ready. I just have to get off my lazy butt and make them! To be honest, I was hoping that this topic would motivate me to do it. (It didn’t.)
Anyway, as promised, here are what other people have to say about flower crowns and the weekly round up of the outfits!:
Mariah from Theatricality by Mariah: “…As for flower crowns check out Girl with the Flower for some awesome sartorial inspiration. I’ve been following her since I started blogging and she was part of my inspiration to start. Personally, it depends on how you want to wear it and what you’re wearing it with. I made an all white one for graduation since I had to wear a white dress (I think there are pictures somewhere on my blog). For every day wear, I like simpler elastic headbands. Overall, they’re a go from me!”
(Side note: her comment reminded me of my own graduation cap which I decorated with flowers! In all the hustle and bustle of getting called up for my diploma and such, the one thing I remember is someone shaking my hand and saying how he thought my grad cap was clever 🙂 Hehe, maybe one of these days, I’ll show it on here!)
MITCH from Oh Dear Bumblebees “Flower crowns are cute but I just don’t know where to wear that headpiece “
Laura from Do I DeClaire “As for floral crowns they are pretty, but they are a nay for me. I think I am past the age I can make them look cool!”
Nikkie from Chic Nikkie “…Anyway, I have to admit, I’ve been seeing a load of flower crowns since last summer and I vowed to try and make one (either with real/fake flowers, or to try and crochet one) but never did got the chance. I think flower crowns are just so pretty and they make one instantly look so feminine and romantic. I’ve been craving one since I saw them!! Can’t wait to get myself one! 🙂 …”
Christine from Christine G “…Flower crowns? Yay!!!
They are kind of must have for me in summer time. I mean, if you know how to wear them they look really cute. I think that flower crowns are perfcet for some summer festival or something like that. So, why not?:)…”
Alexis Grace from North On Harper “…As for your question– I am going to say NAY over the age of 21 (with the exception of a music festival)… they just look a little forced…”
Ali from The Drawing Mannequin “…Hehe, I have made a few flower crowns myself! I don’t get to wearing them often, though, which needs to change…”
And some thoughtful comments:
Nikkie from Chic Nikkie: “…I still can’t believe you made that dress~ even though I was in fashion class where we learned some basic sewing, I forgot all about how use a sewing machine and how to make pieces. Super envious of you!…” (Umm I’m super envious that your school offered FASHION CLASS!!)
Jackie from Something About that “…I was in Atlantic Canada a few weeks back, and had the same feeling. Everyone is just so cute over there. And yes, they say “eh” a LOT!…”
Allie from ALLIE NYC “…I know going upstate is fun, and even better in summer. My friends live in Peekskill which is quite a nice town on the Hudson…”
The topic of the week is Pre-Posting: What does your routine for creating a post look like? Picking out the outfit, taking pictures, photo editing, writing, etc.
Comment by Friday to be featured on next week’s Celebration Comments 🙂
