I found this 1920’s wax orange blossom wedding tiara in a vintage shop. I had toyed with the idea of buying one for a while but wasn’t sure if it would look too old fashioned. I saw a similar headpiece in a shop in London for £100 so couldn’t justify buying it too see if it worked. So when I came across this in Devon for £10 I snapped it up!
The headpiece which sits on top of your head like an alice band, came with an attached tulle veil but had tears and rips in it so I took it off.
Now I need to do some adaptation! The tiara is made of 3 wire ‘bands’. I could simplify that to one band, taking flowers of the other two bands and wrapping those across the other band that would go across my head.
The flowers are so pretty. I also thought I could ignore the headband idea all together and create a new hair piece using the flowers which could go to the back or side of my hair.
Maybe create something like this:
I love the way this bride-to-be wore her vintage headpiece on the back of her head
I guess how I wear my headpiece all depends on how I wear my hair. Or how I wear my hair all depends on how I wear my headpiece. Oh brother.
Any suggestions on how to customise my tiara (or how to wear my hair!) please post here!
