Stacey Black, the writer of the blog Aestethic Contradiction, also the woman behind Eustratia (mentioned here) – just put up a very simple tutorial for making “Marie Antoinette inspired hair“. If you know how to teeze/backcomb and how to curl your hair – there’s nothing to it! Ofc long hair is recommended. And it would be super cool to have that hair color of hers – but for us who dare not bleach it for one or the other reason (bleaching my hair from black would kill it) – there’s always powder, right!? ;D Or why not buy a wig to style in this matter?

Sanna K of Rococo Atelier kindly informed us that IMATEX is now working again! Thank you!
Here’s a new favorite:
Many of you are probably familiar with the fly fringe, explained by Vivien, but have you seen a whole garment made out of it? While browsing Nordiska museet’s collections I found this shawl that seems to be just that!
My palms suddenly got very sweaty yesterday while watching the Swedish version of Antiques Roadshow – Antikrundan. A woman brought a pair of mid 18th century mules:
They were valued to about 1000-2000 SEK – ca 148 USD, 93 GBP, 112 EUR. I wonder if they are for sale… ;D
Anywhoo, if you want to skip the silver cups and wooden cabinets, the shoes come in at ca 20:30, watch it here.
Been working up to 10 h days for like 2 months and I’m pretty beat when I come home, so I mostly just end up browsing random stuff my eyes like. Today I searched for “cat” in the new MET collections search. Stragely this turned up, but I’m very glad it did! Looooove that hair sis!!!
