Not only do I have two breathtaking dresses for the week I'll be spending with my father and family celebrating him with bravour, I also have this super glamorous head creation, all handmade for me. Can you imagine there's a modiste doing this as a living? And she is soooo skilled and creative, just take a look here and let yourself be tempted!
It's just something when you add a decoration to your head, it sort of raises the whole feeling of dressing up, getting all stylish with the sense of an international Mad Men feeling where women really took a party seriously and paid attention to all the details.
When I'm abroad and attending a festivity, it's so much more common and accepted to wear a hat or a nice headwear, but us Scandiavian citizens are much more cautious and afraid to stand out and dress up. Something I'm trying my best not to to do. You should never be disguised or feel like a Christmas tree, but to honour a celebration, a party or some other occasion with the decency of making an effort - it's just lovely, fun and will make the person very happy.
So this black flower with its thin veil are going to follow me on the trip and be all exquisite! I'll show you after the trip how I combined it.
