Headdress Plans


My friend Chely recently gave me a Christmas present that is exactly the kind of thing I was talking about in this article. She's been listening to me yearning after headdresses for a while now,and so her present to me this year was a box of found feathers in black, white, and coral pink.

So I've been drawing up ideas of how I want my little DIY project to look. I am thinking about attaching the feathers to a tiara, a hair comb ... or even backing them with a length of gathered and ruffled black chiffon. We'll see. And yes, my plans did include frilly heart-patterned underwear. No, I don't know why.

Too awesome. Are you channeling Weetzie Bat?

Haha - confession time: I've never actually read anything by Francesca Lia Block ... Should I?

I only read it a year ago because The BFF was all over it. It's good-ish, very sweet and fantasy filled. Not totally my scene but I can see why people like it.

How's that for a ringing endorsement?! ;D
