Sallie once said that Internet friends are the best friends. Slowly, I repeat – slowly, I’m finding that to be true.
During late summer, I published a post about how I was digging flower crowns. In the post, I admitted that although I was lusting the trend, I didn’t know if I could pull it off in real life. This is one of those trends that works in theory but not in reality. A short time after I published that post, one of my readers published a post that had photos of her wearing a flower crown. I commented that I wanted her to make me one and lo and behold, she did.
Let me backtrack and introduce her, this reader who made me my flower crown - Antonia. This is no ordinary reader. She sent me an email of admiration many months ago introducing herself and her blog and since that first email, she has never stopped emailing. She sparks conversations just when I think she’s forgotten about me. “Nope! There she is again!” I think when her email shows up in my inbox. Cheer and merry is what I like about her – her emails are always full of such emotions – even if her messages only contain words. To prove how full this girl’s heart is – even though she lives in Germany, she was willing to pay the extra pocket change (she’s in high school) to send me my package. My first international package!
Back to how I wore it. Set out to find a way to wear a flower crown in the everyday realm of dressing, I was stumped. Paired with jeans, skirts, crop tops, blouses, and jackets, nothing could make me look somewhat normal or sane, until I closed the door of my closet and looked at the dress that stares and both you and I in every ‘how I wore it’ post. The only way I could make a flower crown work was to dress it up, WAY UP, as you all suggested in my first post on flower crowns. But, when dressed up, flower crowns look amazing.
So, I reserve this trend for the best occasions like weddings, balls, galas, or vacuuming your apartment wearing a wedding gown, flower crown, and heels. If you’re going to scrub the toilet too in such attire, at least put on some gloves to complete the look.
Thank you Antonia! I’m one lucky gal to have a friend like you – even if it’s through the Internet.
