Etsy: Lula Inspiration & Daisy Crowns

The day I bought that white lace dress in my latest Saver's excursion was the same day that my sister showed me that new wooden swing in our neighborhood. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to photograph that dress there. It reminded me a lot of the 'Crown of Love' editorial in Lula Magazine and made me wish for a daisy filled crown to style it with. It just so happened that on that exact same day my sister introduced me to one of her friends who's just getting started in the hat making business. She brought a bunch of her designs over and let me 'ooh and aah' over them as I set them on my head and posed for the mirror. I told her I'd help her photograph them and show a few off on my blog once her etsy store opened up. In the meantime, she agreed to make me a daisy crown for the lace dress photos! I showed her the Lula inspiration photo just two days before I needed the crown, and after staying up til 1am the first night and 4am the second night, she had the crown ready to go! It's made of a wire base and can be adjusted to fit any size. I have it listed in the shop along with the white lace dress that Katy is modeling for me.

That model looks a little bit like Angelina Jolie, and your pictures are great, you are really taking some awesome pictures at first I thought they came from a magazine. Love the hat I actually made one myself at the beginning of may for May dayI wore it and got alot of compliments mostly from men and alot of stares and compliments from women too.
