At an early age, I kept binders of inspiration imagery. One of my favorite magazine tear-out’s was a shopping trip that Sofia Coppola did where she picked up some cheap flower hair clips from China Town. They were so unique and vibrant – but I had no clue where to get some for myself. (This was back in the 90’s.) But now that we have online shopping and there are so many great handmade makers on sites like Etsy, it’s hard to pick which butterfly accessories I love the most. Seeing the way the women style their hair to wear them is all so inspiring in itself, it makes me think I ought to make my hair feel fancy (kind of a natural, woodland fairy kind of fancy – though) more often. These images show you how to wear butterfly clips in many different ways. So, get inspired!
To get in the “romantical” kind of mood you might be seeking, I suggest listening to “Honey and the Moon” by Joseph Arthur.
