Review of Belle Blossoms’ Hair Flowers + Coupon Code

Though I often review brooches (as they’re quite obviously my favorite accessory), I wanted to branch out and review a more 1940s-reminiscent accessory today: hair flowers.

With my hair growing out to unmanageable lengths, I find myself reverting to longer 1940s dos more than 1950s out of necessity (as always happens. The perfect way to camouflage a limp or overgrown do is with hair flowers! When Belle Blossoms responded positively to my hopeful request that she participate in my giveaway, I was ecstatic! Her shop has always been one of my favorite hair accessory/flower shops, and to top it off, she carries grip-tuths! The only hair combs that hold in my thick, thick hair.

For my giveaway which you can enter here, she donated these beautiful accessories:

unnamed

White hair scarf, white snood, Erica’s Irish Wedding Clip

For my review, she sent along three gorgeous hair clips of my own! I love the variety of shapes and sizes, and they all work perfectly with the half poodle look, victory rolls, really, any ’40s do! And they all coincidentally happen to match my Paris Jenny 😉

Took a slight field trip to find the rare selection of flowers available here in the desert to show off their beauty! Enjoy 💚💜💛

The Leilani Tropical Cluster

 

Belle’s Purple Hydrangea Side Comb

 

The Fuoco Nelle Vene Passion Flower
(My personal favorite)

Don’t forget to enter my giveaway for some hair flowers and accessories of your own! And go ahead and visit her on her website, her Facebook or her Instagram to see more of her work. And if you really love what she creates, you can even join her Blossom of the Month Club where she’ll send you surprise flowers each month – a great way to try something new and quickly build your collection!

My 10K Giveaway, Pt. 2: Custom Hand-painted Skirt from Vance Clothing, Belle Blossoms Hair Accessories, and My Premier Amour Custom Blouse

Hello friends and followers!

As I’m sure many of you have seen on my Instagram, I recently hit 10K followers! đŸŽ‰đŸŽˆđŸ’„

d782ba3a-252d-439c-b585-9f0ef0c8de50 (1)

This is something that I had never imagined was a possibility! After all, it wasn’t THAT long ago that I was reeling over hitting just 1K. I’m so appreciative to all of my followers, old and new, and particularly appreciative of all those friends who stuck by my Instagram even when I started flooding it with photos of my vintage clothing.

Having seen this impending momentous occasion, I wanted to give a little something back to everyone, so sent out a call asking shops to collaborate with me. I was so pleasantly surprised at the wide range and quantity of responses, that I decided to split my giveaway into two parts, accessories, and bigger ticket items!

For this portion of my giveaway, 3 separate winners will be chosen for my three separate prizes. Here’s a break down of all three items and the contest widgets where you can enter. The contest ends June 12th – same date as the corresponding Instagram portion of my giveaway.

Prize 1:

The first item on my list is perhaps my favorite of the donated items as the possibilities are endless! Although I had known Miss Lillian Vance previously, it was upon seeing her photographs with Miss Victory Violet in Disneyland that I realized she is one of those talented people who can hand-make and hand-paint skirts! I immediately contacted her asking if we could work something out, and I am officially in her queue to get a skirt painted with Meg’s “Won’t Say I’m in Love” scene in Hercules.

I’m thrilled to announce that she’s also offering up a skirt for my contest! The skirt can be of cotton or felt material (your choice), and she’ll paint one image on it of your choice, as well. This is such a huge prize, and I’m so happy to give you all a chance to win one of her gorgeous works of art.

(A note, since this is a custom item, it’ll be at least a month before you receive it so Vance Clothing has time to discuss options with you, then sew and hand-paint it.)

Prize 2: The second item on my list is a selection of hair accessories from Belle Blossoms, one of my all-time favorite hair flower designers out there, and my go-to shop for hair snoods and the holy grail brand of hair combs, Grip-Tuth. Though I haven’t been using flowers lately as the selection I had reached an untimely demise over the past year, I’m eagerly awaiting some hair flowers from Belle Blossoms myself and was so happy when she agreed to donate items for the giveaway.  She created a hair flower she calls “Erica’s Irish Wedding Clip” for my giveaway as well as sending along a white snood and a white scarf, perfect for wedding or daily wear in the hot summer time (pictured below)!

Prize 3:

If you saw my last post on my blog, you’ve seen my review of my custom My Premier Amour Charm & Eloquence blouse made for me with the gorgeous Paris print.

The final item in the blog portion of my giveaway is this same blouse in an adorably kitschy cat print customized to your size! Perfect for warmer or cooler weather, and to add that little extra bit of interest into your wardrobe with the peplum cut (pictured below).

(Note: Since this item is also made just for the winner, it will take around 2 weeks to get the top made from the time the winner is chosen.)
