and she went back in black


I finally have hair long enough for milkmaid braids! But I couldn't find a single tutorial on how to do them! Not, actually. How-to's for milkmaid braids are on every single blog I visit. Literally. Well, almost. Honestly, how hard could it be? Braid, pin, milk - see, simple. I actually like to add a little volume by pinning a little hair up in front. Plus, then that helps disguise the bobby pins that actually hold the braids in place.

I know I just wore this dress, but oh well. Actually I wanted to wear it because the lower neckline helps show off the beauty of this necklace. I will always have a special place in my jewelry box for this gorgeous choker - I bought and wore it for my first high school dance.

What a great outfit! Incidentally, great job on the braids! My hair is too long and too heavy to allow for much volume in front, but I think I'll try your way next time!

Your hair looks like a Renaissance queen...it's absolutely stunning for your face shape and just makes your features pop. You're gorgeous :) Those shoes are toooooooo cute...I had my bridesmaids wear them for my wedding and wished I had bought myself a pair!
