Lolita Blog Carnival : Week 24 : Your Favorite Type of Accessory!

Hello Lovelies~

 Thank goodness it's Friday!~ That means that it's the beginning of the weekend, my day off, and time for another Lolita Blog Carnival Post!

This week it is all about Accessories. We are supposed to post on our favorite accessory but as I worked on this over the week, I started to wonder if I was supposed to post on My Favorite Accessory, as in something I actually own, or if the post was supposed to be about My Favorite Accessories in general.

I decided to blend the two ideas! The challenge was really kind of open ended.


  To kick things off, we'll start with the accessory I actually own.

This is an older picture of me, I mean my hair is brown and everything!!!, Lol, But seriously. The headdress happens to be my favorite accessory. It is the Metamorphose Princess R.Lace Headdress.

 It was given to me by a friend who is very close to my heart for my birthday one year I do believe and I wear it quite often.

 I love it because it's simple, elegant, and can go with most anything I pair it with. Black and white, Pink, Red, Skirts, Dresses, It's very versatile and that is what I look for in all of my accessories. I pay a lot for them, so I want to use them for more than one thing ^_^

See? Dressed up or down, this headdress is a classic.

If you can make out the white frill in front, that is the headdress flat. It's such a bright white that getting pictures of it is really hard.

 Now, as for my favorite accessories in general, I must say I think in has to be False Nails.

That's right, False Nails are my favorite accessory. Sure, I love a beautiful peal necklace, I like my headdresses and head bows and my frilly socks, but if you walk out of the house and have old or chipped nail polish, it can really take away from the finished look you have put together.

 I confess, I walk out of the house and my nails rarely look perfect. My job is rough on them and more often than not, my nails are uneven and my polish is severely chipped, but I try to keep the nice. When I get a day to relax and dress up, my nails are the last thing on my mind, I just want to get out of the door and enjoy my day off, not spend all day getting ready for it!

I used to feel self conscious about them, but then I decided to fix the problem rather than always feel awkward about them. I bought my first pair of nails the very next day and put them in my purse with a package of thick adhesive to hold them in place.

 False nails are easy to find in stores, on line, or you can even make them yourself. They range in price and size, so if you want a look that is wearable over and over that can coordinate with every outfit and doesn't take forever to dry! Then I would recommend looking into getting a pair to try out for yourself.

  I have worn that set so much that they can't be worn any longer, and sadly, have no pictures of them to show all of you, but that's alright. I make my own nails now and showing off my own hard work is always more fun!

I hope you enjoyed reading this post and will check out the other posts in this topic from the other wonderful LBC girls.
