Hair Clip Heaven - Rosie Alia Designs

Hello there good gentle folk. I hope you are all doing aces. And if not, then perhaps this treat of  hair clip from Rosie Alia Designs will cheer you up? Simple things like pretty fleur's  - real or faux - usually make me smile. Especially when they are as nice as this one.

Now. I own more hair flowers than I care to admit. Most of mine come from the High Street (H&M -  I'm looking at you) for anything between £2 - £5. I recently decided to try and display them in some kind of arty way, using string and my dressing table mirror.

The result? It looked as though a monster had taken a floral dump in my bedroom. 
I must try harder.It looked so awesome in my head.

dress - made by me // shoes - thrifted Clarks //cardy Primark // bag vintage 70's

However, I think that this looks pretty awesome on my head. Hand made by a very talented thing by the name of Rosie Alia, they are the perfect addition to a coiffed retro do or for clipping in and rushing out the door (yep -  that's me then)

Made from durable, but remarkably real looking, silk flowers they fix in with a sprung clip that doesn't show. Yes. Doesn't show.

Now. I have a real problem with the clips on hair flowers being seen. Although the flowers themselves might not look all that natural -  for some reason seeing the clip showing really bugs me. I have been known to spend longer on trying to conceal them than I did on my actual hair.

So -that in itself was a huge win for me. That and the fact that no matter what side I place it (usually my left) or how my hair is fixed, it stays put and does not stick out at a weird angle.

Rosie made this one just for me with it's big ol' poppy and hedgerow looking whites. I am really into Edwardian looks at the moment with wild flowers and such.  I like the idea of it looking as though I have whimsically picked a shrub and stuffed it behind my ear. In my head, the is exactly the look I pull off.  Ha!

With that in mind,I shall be keeping a close eye on the new things in store. I basically want an English meadow on my head (could I hint any harder? *wink*) and with custom orders available, I might just be able to achieve it. But if you are a buy-and-wear-kinda-girl, there are plenty to choose from ready made over at her Etsy Shop -  with new pieces being added all the time. She is one busy crafter.

I think her prices are fair for the beautiful work she creates. As a vintage dresser herself, she knows exactly what us gals are after. 

There are a few I have my eye on and if they are still there by pay day -  I shall be clipping them on my head. Fact.
