Thursday, July 19, 2012 Guest Edit: Get Spiked With Vintage Virgin
I know it’s all about the floral crown for summer, but with fall coming up fast, it’s time to ditch the daisies for something a bit more dangerous. Whether you reach for a headband, harnesses or individual spikes, there are endless ways to toughen up your everyday look. Right now, I’m really digging the long braided ponytail, especially with a little black dress like the El Diablo Dress paired with the Tripoli Cutout Boots. If you want to tone down the heavy metal, go for the Knotted Up Dress and 8th Street Spike Combat Boots, perfect for day or night.
Trust me, you’ll have everyone you know screaming, “OMG, SPIKES!”
#Mini DIY: To do my ‘do, all you need is 1 1/2 inch spikes and a tight side braid. Just place spikes randomly throughout, or get creative and make a pattern. It shouldn’t take longer than 5 minutes, and is guaranteed to turn heads. Looks like your hair just made a new BFF!
