I know I'm about a year late on this.
But I loved it then, and I love it now. I basically want that exact Rodarte barrette, but I can't find anything that doesn't have any bullshit crystals or (gah) pearls. I'm getting married in late May of 2012; this is my dress.
(Ignore that "boho chic" nonsense. And I know my dress has a sparkly crystal bit, but it's such a small bit).
Since I can't find exactly what I want, I'm thinking of going in the other direction. So is tortoise shell too casual for a wedding?
I'm still loving barrettes. (As are alllllllllll the ladies who seem to be growing out their bangs at the moment. WUSSYPANTSES.)
But I feel like you need something with a little shine.
Vintage brass pansies? ($15)
Vintage brass feather? ($30)
Vintage "Carved" Barrette ($20), which, I'm pretty sure is made out of plastic. But how Rodarte AWESOME would it be if you painted it gold??
