Traci emailed me with this question:
I just started reading your blog and I LOVE IT. I love your use of expletives. And I love your (sometimes brutal) honesty. Your posts about hating engagement sessions and balloons makes me sad though because I used red balloons in our photos because it had meaning to us. My fiance popped out of a six foot red balloon to propose to me. It was pretty fucking awesome. I hope you don't judge me because I don't hate things that you say fuck this to. :)
I have a bride style question for you because I love your style. I am wearing a simple dress with a sweetheart (strapless) neckline with a big bow in the back (but no beading, lacing, or adornments). I am planning on wearing a necklace with a lace applique, similar to one you showed in a previous post, but in black:
I am not planning on wearing a veil and I am going to wear my short black hair down. Do you have any suggestions for what to wear in my hair? Would a big flower be overkill?
First of all Traci, I would never judge anyone for disagreeing with me. I love a good disagreement. And did I say I was over balloons?? That must have been weeks ago.
As for your hair dilemma, I think a big mess of FEATHERS would look vintage-y and fabulous with your short hair. Much cooler than a (yawn) big flower. This headpiece is by Sara Gabriel:

I would also like someone to get married in the "she enjoys shakespeare in the park" by ban.do because it reminds me of Jane Birkin. Who doesn't wanna look like Jane Birkin?
