Dress, Kimono & Shoes- Topshop, Bag- Urban Outfitters, Belt- Vintage



So after seeing the image of Nicole Richie sporting one of her many amazing headpieces I started a mission to create a headpiece that I could wear whilst wearing my hair up as I tend it to wear it up more often than down, but found it a little hard and gave up but then today a small miracle happened. I putting a necklace over my head to wear the standard neck way and it got caught on my bun and with this a light bulb appeared above my head and this idea came to me- simply wear necklaces around your bun! It's not exactly what I wanted but now I've figured out the simple concept hopefully I can create one more like Nicole's! Anyway, this is what I wore today. Bought this kimono at the beginning of the year for like a 10er! and the bag was in UO's summer buys sale thing from about 85 quid to about 20 i think. 
p.s please excuse all the orby/dust spots in the image no idea what my camera's up to!
