This hairdo with a ribbon was inspired by the movie The Secret of Moonacre that I fall in love with, it is a fairy tale that has everything in it (even unicorns!) and has stunning victorian inspired (but somehow steampunkly deconstructed with a hint of Clockwork Orange) costumes. I really recommend it, if you are interested in such things. On the other hand I did not like the book that inspired the movie (The Little White Horse by Elizabeth Goudge), the movie was better in my opinion, because - what kind of fairy tale it is, if it discusses death melancholically at the end of the story?! Not my cup of tea at all!

It has been quite a long time I was longing for a golden nailpolish. I did not like gold when I was younger but since I read a book by a Czech author Loukotková called Není římského lidu (sorry the title was apparently never translated, is means something like "There is no people of Rome") golden nails caught my attention. The book itself is about the Rome at the time of emperor Nero and the main character is Petronius. There is a passage when empress Poppaea tries to poison Petronius with a wine and when she is thinking he is dying or dead already she makes him a kind of a tribute when she dresses the way he always liked women to be dressed. In white dress and golden nails and narcissus perfume. It was described really nicely. (I just must read it again soon.) So finally, I also have my own golden nailpolish, Petronius Arbiter Elegantiae would be happy ;)

I was longing to manage to do this hairdo for a long time and a few days ago I bought special hairpins that do almost all the work for me. Originally I wanted to buy an original type of the pin but they cannot be found in shops in my town, I guess they can be bought only as a vintage item on ebay or such places. But the modern ones do the trick too :)

I hope I will be posting soon again. I deleted all the previous posts because I wanted to go in a little different direction with my blog and was just too lazy to go through everything and pick posts I still like and delete those I don´t. I hope you will enjoy my "new" blog!
