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!

New things

Did a little bit of Christmas shopping today, but obviously couldn't help treating myself to a few bits!
