I'm an accessory person. It's so much easier to try something new by adding an accessory than by toying with the delicate balance of one's wardrobe. Since it's springtime I've been developing a bit of an obsession with flowers--in my hair, on my lapel, in my hat...wherever I can put them! Sadly, real flowers die much too quickly, but kanzashi last forever.

Kanzashi is a type of traditional Japanese craft which involves folding fabrics into "petals" with which to construct artificial flower arrangements. Etsy seller SecretLolita has some beautiful and elaborate kanzashi arrangements, so perfect for an outdoor gathering or special occasion. Hanami Gallery has a slightly different chrysanthemum style of kanzashi, but just as gorgeous.
