Obsess Over Everything

What is there to say?  Nothing.  I am speechless.  No: I can actually go on rambling for paragraphs upon paragraphs on how wonderful these photographs are.  They are done by the group Atelier Olschinsky.  It’s part of a group of photos under the title Innocentia.

First of all, the red.  Oh, all of that red just gets me far too excited.  The designer of all of these garments, Susanne Bisovsky, is a genius in my mind.  Yes, these were taken a bit of time ago but that doesn’t make it any less wonderful.  Plus, it’s exactly the style I have been looking for lately.  It’s very Dolce and Gabbana, no?  There is comfort and loads of lace and flowers.  Plus there is that old-country feeling mixed with fresh youth.

I just know a painting or drawing is going to sprout out of my head from this….



I’ve been wanting a Frida Kahlo inspired head piece for a while, but feel as though it’s not exactly the best thing to wear every day.  Here’s a little mini version with some of my own style added to it- aka the gold chain.  Adding some gold chain can fix everything.

My frightening workspace.

What you need:

  • Glue Gun
  • Flowers- any color will do.   I find that going to Michael’s or Jo-Ann Fabrics to buy a whole bouquet is the cheapest.  Just separate each flower and snip off as much of the stem as possible so they don’t show or stick out of the clip.
  • Hair comb
  • Gold Chain- I buy from Pacific Trimming
  • Scissors- to cut the flowers with
  • Gold Hoop Rings- to link the three gold chains to
  • Pliers- to link the three chains to the gold hoop

The Hoop is over the glued flower stem

To start, glue a few flowers to the clip.  Then, link your three chains to the golden hoops. There should two gold hoops that attach to both ends of the chains.  In order to get the chain onto the clip, just glue it down.  I hung mine over top of one of the flower stems.

Then, do the same with the other side of the chain.  Keep gluing flowers down so that there is a large quantity of them and you don’t see the base of the clip.  Once you’ve done that, you’re done!  Pretty simple.
