    Default Hair Adornment

    I came across this (I think quite lovely) Diamond and South Sea Keshi Pearl hair ornament:

    Wisteria Hair Corsage by Tasaki

    for the Tiara minded: Abstract Star Tiara (though it is less Tiara and more hairband)

    and finally hair combs: Petals Hair Corsage
    No, Midge said, I take it back. I wouldnt get a mink coat the first thing. Know what Id do? Id get a string of pearls. Real pearls. Yes, Annabel said, slowly. I think thats a kind of a good idea. And it would make sense, too. Because you can wear pearls with anything.

    You can never be too dressed-up.

    I just showed the picture to a friend, she said I don't know about hair adornment, but I'd buy a smaller pair as earrings.

    Oh well LoL

    The wisteria piece is beautiful. That hair ornament is worn with a kimono when the hair is pulled up. It's made to dangle a little. Here's an old picture of my daughter wearing one made out of silk.Name:  Copy of 258771_1914674760219_3318620_o.jpg

    Oh wow! Thank you all for your kind words. It's traditional to take formal kimono pictures at 3-5-7 years of age. This picture was taken when she was seven during one of the summers we spent in Japan. She's dressed as a maiko. We took photos of my son too (he was 5 at the time). I was on the fence about taking these photos because of the cost, but looking back, I'm so happy we did it. I love the photos from this session. I got my son to agree to do the photo shoot by telling him he could hold a sword dressed as a samuri warrior. lol. There were two ladies that did hair and makeup and another two that dressed the kids. I picked out the kimonos from a selection at the studio and the photographer did the rest. My daughter is now 24 and my son is 21. Where does the time go?

    I was not expecting that! What a great memory you've shared, also how fun for both of them to have had that experiences so young, do they remember having done it when looking back at the photos?
