Yes my lovely readers, on Sunday it’s my birthday and I will wear a crown if I want to…
If there’s one time of year you can get away with wearing a crown, it has to be your birthday. Ten weeks of watching the ladies of BBC drama ‘The White Queen’ scramble to get their fame hungry mitts on the royal crown has got me in the mood for some serious head candy. In full regal style Dolce & Gabbana sent models down the catwalk this season wearing ornate gold crowns, studded with beautiful gems. I’m not sure if even I could pull this look off, even though I am spending my birthday in the rather glamorous Houghton Hall.
Maybe something more exotic would work? ASOS have a fab selection of Bollywood worthy hair accessories, in a range of jewel tones and intricate shapes. I think it has to be fine weather for such a summer accessory.
Flower crowns are not my favourite (a bit too girly for me) but they do work well for festivals and garden parties. Perfect for less formal occasions and add a carefree, hedonistic vibe. My Flash Trash have a sweet little selection featuring this one worn by the super stylish Rosie Fortescue.
Would you wear a birthday crown?
