November has been an extremely busy month and I have enjoyed taking some time away from the online world in favor of getting to meet some of my favorite bloggers in person and spending time together offline. Last weekend I had the pleasure of meeting bloggers who I have been following for as long as five years, thanks to a fantastic meet up organised by Bonita and Ellen which you can read all about on Lavender & Twill and A Wild Tea Party. On top of that, a few nights ago I caught up for drinks and Mexican food with Brisbane vintage ladies; Kim from Say Cheesecake Photography and published pinup model Honey Holloway. In Sydney I met the fabulous Missi, the creator of Daisy Jean Floral Designs who made the stunning flower hair clip I am wearing in these photos.
That's right - these are actually artificial flowers, hard is it may be to believe considering they appear as if they were only moments before picked off a hibiscus plant and tucked into my hair! This is the first time I have ever worn hair flowers before on the blog as I am extremely picky when it comes to hair flowers and find many styles to be too over the top for my taste. I am a huge fan of Daisy Jean Floral Designs because not only is the quality of the blooms the most superior in fabric and feel, but they have a natural, understated appearance that adds instant elegance due to the balanced way in which each piece is designed. The flowers are attached to the hair with a metal clip that does not have any teeth so there is no risk of hair being tangled and is extremely sturdy and remains in place all day.
