Orange Crystal Barrette: French Pleat.

I recently was lucky enough to win a beautiful hamper of hair goodies from Stonebridge Hair, for completing the 100 Pleats in 100 days challenge. One of the items that I just couldn’t wait to try out was this beautiful barrette studded with clementine-coloured crystals.

I’ve been out on the town thrice now recently wearing this exact ensemble:


I’m afraid that this particular barrette is now sold out, but there are plenty of other pretty barrettes to choose from here.
