Today I have a sponsored review from a very elegant company called Yume Kanzanshi. But I think I shall explain a little more on what a Kanzashi is. A Kanzashi is a traditional hair ornament or to me and you a hair accessory used in traditional Japanese hairstyles and was once thought to ward off evil spirits ~eek! . These hair accessories are worn by (not limited to) geisha and maiko in Japan.They are very pretty and beautiful pieces and if like me you are enchanted by the traditional side of Japan and the beautiful charming geisha.
I got a lovely parcel in the post from Yume Kanzanshi whom is a friend of mine. She has a deep passion for all things from Japan and puts it all into her work of her items she sells.
You can find the most elegant looking pieces fit for a bride to be to a princess and each item is handmade. Or why not take a look at the colourful Kawaii range of hair accessories.
Here is the item, oh my gosh is soo pretty! This photo makes it look small but its a fair size when you see it in your hair. It is made of a Sky Blue fabric and has coloured sports all over it on the print as well as my most favourite things to eat Macarons!
In the centre of the main flower, at the top is a cute pearl with a elegant attachment to the fabric with give it a lovely touch. The Back of this Kanzanshi is 2 fittings, One being a alligator grip and the other like a pin , seen in the photo.
This piece at the back is firmly secured on to the accessory . The great thing about having two attachments to the accessory is how versatile it can become. Below are my photos of it on a medium length wig and the other on one of my blazer style jacket. You really could use this in many different ways .
I already have plans with outfits to wear this with so if you are interested in seeing my outfit ideas and my other photos you can find me on instagram! Instagram link
I hope you like my review, I suggest you check out Yuma Kanzashi and her up coming designs that she is working on and has planned, one other item in the shop are these pretty necklaces all handmade.
Till next time!
