Braids

One of the things I miss most about long hair is wearing braids. They make me feel so girly and polished. And I don't want to stop wearing them just because I have short hair.

So I started looking for inspiration and found these pictures of Gemma Ward and Natasha Poly wearing French braids, and the best thing is that I can wear them too. I won't be wearing Heidi braids any time soon, but I realised, I have alternatives.

I've been nominated by Soir de Fête (thank you!) for the thinking blogger award a few days ago, and I kept forgetting to answer the questions. So, here they are:

1. What is the story behind the name of your blog and nickname?

Quite dull to be honest. It occurred to me while thinking for a fashion related word that exist in several languages.

2. What has been your best and worst blogging experience?

The best thing is positive feedback.

The worst thing about the blogging experience, is the people who doesn't value your work and insult you.

3. What do you think/ want to happen to your blog in 2008?

Good things I hope! So far, this blog has been giving me more than I ever imagined.

gemma ward has such an angelic face, the braid suits her well. i wish i knew how to do the look, i've noticed the heidi braids have been going around lately- the new chanel ad with chirsty? anyways, looks very summery.

I think they're perfect with this spring's Stella McCartney florals and all the boho vibe going on. They look fab on Gemma!
