Head Jewellery

I am obsessing over indian style head jewellery and hair pieces at the moment. I'm a sucker for turbans lately too, I love the way they look with long hair. After working at a Bollywood themed wedding, I fell in love with the Indian saris and beautiful over the top accessories! The colours and flowers are so inspiring:

I've had my eye on this head piece from River Island for a while, although I really would love a silver one to wear on New Year's Eve, to match my Litas with silver spikes. I'm on the hunt for one but unfortunately most of the ones on eBay are from India, therefore need to be ordered about a month in advance :(
Isn't it beautiful? Not so sure on the £20 price tag though... but I haven't seen any others like this - I love it so much i'm contemplating just buying it and painting it silver!

Here's a bit of inspiration...

I saw this simple hair piece on eBay, though it looks extremely simple to DIY from an old belt or necklace!

I'm going shopping tomorrow, so if I can't find one I like, I think i'll buy a few necklaces from Primark and make my own. On the top of my list is a dress for NYE though!

Happy Holidays!

5. Black Milk galaxies
6. Underground Creepers in pink

Glittery Goth

I have noticed lately my style is definitely heading towards the grunge/goth look. Which I love, so it's a good thing. I took this photo today for Lookbook... and can I just ask WHY it is soo hard to get hypes on Lookbook? I've uploaded 4 photos now and the most hypes one has is 5, and the rest only have 1... so please do me a favour and hype my looks (if you like them!).

Anyway I made this leopard print cross t-shirt myself - inspired by one exactly the same from Urban Outfitters which costs a disgusting £28! Mine cost me about £2 overall to make. You can read my tutorial here if you want to make your own!

The skirt I bought at a car boot sale from a little old granny, who said she used to go dancing in it when she was my age. How cute is that?! It's chiffon, pleated, and a good length to wear with heels - perfect! My hat is from Primark for £5, which I thought was quite expensive for Primark! They are definitely getting more expensive lately.
