Week 29.2: Seasonal Foliage

Hullo!  I do hope you'll pardon the excessive quantity of indoor photos... it's been a bit winter-y outside and I've been having trouble getting out to take pictures before evening descends.

I've been very keen on making sure that my foliage matches the seasons properly, so I finally got around to assembling the giant poinsettia fascinator I've been meaning to make.  It's ever-so-slightly velvety, has a small bit of glitter in the very center, and is nearly as large as my face.  I'm quite proud of it, and it goes very nicely with my red felt circle skirt.

I've contemplated putting together a tutorial on how I make my various floral clips, but I'm not sure whether anyone would find it particularly useful... there are already about a million tutorials out there, right?  And it's not so complex... I suppose the question really is, can I build a better mousetrap?

Excessively large poinsettia fascinator clip: Made by moi

Red felt circle skirt: Made by moi
Black leather belt: from Grandma
Black & red bangles: Various
Black crinoline: Evangeline's


  1. Love the outfit! I would think it was interesting since I've been meaning to do some for dance outfits. And maybe muster up enough courage to wear to school as well ;)

    1. Thank you! I'll see if I can work something out. I think you could wear something like this to school. :) Have courage!

  2. Your poinsettia fascinator is so festively gorgeous! If you ever feel looking doing a howto post on that, I'd be all over it like green on a pine tree! :)

    1. Thank you! Who knows, if I'm lucky I'll manage to assemble a tutorial before Christmas. (Also, "like green on a pine tree" is my new favorite expression!)


Thank you for commenting! I read every one and your words never fail to brighten my day. I do my best to respond to most of them, but if you really want an answer, send an email or find me on Facebook or Twitter!
