Evolution of an outfit

You know those days where you really need to vent on the internet, but the last thing you can do is vent on the internet?
Yeah, i'm having one of those days.
But i've also had a busy, but short day at work, and i love those.
So at least there's that.
But you know what makes me happy?
Seeing how happy you guys where to have comments back.
I'm sure the excitement will die out soon enough, but it was nice that so many of you felt like leaving a comment.
And that you care at all. Obviously that's nice too.

Coralene asked about the hat i wore to the wedding, so i decided to do a post about that whole outfit.
See, comments back is working for me already!
Anyway, it wasn't that my outfit was the important one that day, because duh, the bride and all that, but for once i had the whole thing planned in my head, and then it didn't turn out the way it was supposed to after all.
But here it is anyway; the picture that inspired my outfit, and what went wrong.

This is one of my all time favorite pictures of Frida Kahlo, and for the wedding i'd wanted to wear colors similar to these

I'd already made this headband a long time ago, also inspired by her and the way she wore flowers in her hair

It would be better if i had gorgeous long hair to braid, but you gotta work with what you got

 I bought this dress from Mama Stone on eBay, but it didn't arrive in time, and when it finally did, there was a ransom to be paid... so this dress ended up being very expensive, and due to the lack of summer, i haven't even had a chance to wear it yet

Instead i ended up wearing this dress, that i bought in Tokyo a few years back... not quite the same, but whatever, it's a nice dress, right?*

As for shoes i was supposed to wear these, but the weather was so bad i ended up wearing the boots i got in Texas a couple of years ago....sorry i only have these crappy insta-pictures to show for this very long build-up, but hey, like i said, this post may be about me and what i wore, but the day wasn't!

So in conclusion, i looked nothing like Frida, and you wouldn't be able to tell what inspired my look unless i told you, but it was fun going for something specific instead of just throwing random things together like i normally would have done.

I still haven't finished that Prague film. There's probably only one picture left, but i can't find anything worth photographing here!
Maybe tomorrow i'll have better luck, and if not, i'll let them have it anyway.
The suspense is killing me!

*Picture taken in the fitting room the day i bought it, there hasn't been another hair disaster since last week!
