Hanging on the walls of my apartment are a wedding dress, a fur coat, a beaded crop top, a beaded tunic, a pair of wingtip shoes, and several hats (click here and here to see). I don’t foresee myself ever wearing these clothes and accessories but I think they are beautifully crafted and in great condition. As much thought, preparation, and labor was put into their making so why can’t they be displayed the same as a painting? Why should they hide in my closet and smushed in between my daily wear?
I regard flower crowns the same as the clothes and accessories that hang on my walls – as art pieces. I like flowers crowns but to be honest, I don’t like them enough to wear one in my daily routine. Unless the flowers were very small, I would just feel silly. A little too 60s and a tad too hippy, I just don’t think I could wear it a full day. That doesn’t mean that they can’t be inspiration and it doesn’t mean that they can’t be a weekend DIY project. Also, that doesn’t mean it can’t be the subject of a How I Wore It Post (let’s see if I CAN make it work, eh?)
