Flowers in Your Hair
I thought the next time I dressed up I would get a gardenia or something for my hair for a change. It seems like women used to do this with more frequency in the 1930s-40s for evening attire. And of course the 1960s flower children pioneered the daisy-chain-in-the-hair...

what do you all think of this look? Any more pics for inspiration?

When I was little my mom used to put baby's breath in my hair...If I recall correctly, I think maybe she braided it? Or it was just pinned in...I loved it!

It either makes me feel one of two ways:

Like the song "San Francisco." They sing: Are you going to San Francisco?/Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.

Or, like a Hawaiian girl that lets everyone know her status if she wears the flower on the left or right side of her hair.

My favorite is the floral wreath ... it's like a tiara minus the royal implications ... very forest sprite / Drew Barrymore. I'm not sure where to get one though.

^yeah that's be nice but I wonder where one would wear a wreath? i think of midnight bacchanals like in the master in margarita.

i keep thinking of those dramatic pics of actresses with flowers that were almost like hats-- that's what made me think of billie holiday.

I think it's a fantastic idea!

But I do have a question: do you go with real or fake?
