Uneasy Lies The Head That Wears The Crown

I don't want every post to be about my new hair color, but it has been interesting figuring out what colors clash with it and which still look ok. This dress was one of my favorites to wear last summer and I was a bit sad thinking it would look bad with my hair and I'd have to retire it for awhile, but as I started to look at accessories I decided I could make it work. My hair tends to look more green than blue when paired with these colors, so it all ended up complimenting each other rather nicely. It was also fun to spend a day dressed more fanciful than I have lately. If I ever stumble across the right materials I'd love to make a collection of flower crowns and headbands using vintage silk flowers and velvet leaves--this vintage fascinator is just my favorite thing and it'd be fun to create more in the same style. Until I make my own I'll keep scouring Etsy for fun vintage hats.

The colors of the dress completely work with your hair color. It has a nice earthy feel to it. I think this is definitely one to keep in the rotation!

Sincerely,

I actually think this is my favorite color combo with your new hair! It looks like someone designed those shoes specifically with your outfit and color choices in mind.

These must be THE best pictures ever in this blog. The colour of your hair paired with that dress and the accessories, plus the surroundings, I mean, can we talk about how gorgeous that bridge is? It does make me think of a professional editorial work for an european fashion mag. Must I say I really loved this??

Pretty outfit!! I think it can be tough to decide what goes with hair color and what clashes. When I had red hair, I felt like nothing looked right, so I wore a lot of black. I think your hair looks cool with all of these colors.

Mauve and emerald looks beautiful together. :) I've been lusting over navy blue hair for a couple years but I've dyed my hair black about 2934793248327 times. It will never happen. lol

I love everything about this look! Just amazing! I got some millinery flowers at an estate sale recently, and I'd love to get my hands on some velvet leaves! Headpieces, while not always practical for everyday wear, are one of my favorite things.

I'm amazed by how similar (if not equal) the color of your bag is ^^.
