Reading other blogs, I’m so glad I’m not the only one unprepared for Christmas!
Honestly, every post I’ve read this week starts with “Can you believe Christmas is next week?” I’m adding to that, because where the hell did the year go? So I donned my festive greens, including this gorgeous Rubylea turban to try and feel that Christmassy feeling!
So in an effort to make myself feel a bit more festive, I dragged my boyfriend to a few Christmas markets around London last week. Now I say dragged, because he really wasn’t having any of it. Turns out that although he has Santa’s beard, he doesn’t quite have Santa’s spirit. But it actually helped me feel a bit Christmassy for the first time this year!
Now. I’ve spoken about Rubylea before. I’ve featured the turbans in my Wednesday Wishlists a few times. And I’m so superbly lucky to have been offered two, and I’ve barely taken them off since they arrived!
I was offered the Rosie style turban in luscious green velvet, plus the Carmen style in black velvet. But guys, it’s Christmas, my hair is red, so we’re going to talk about the green Rosie style Rubylea turban today!
I started wearing turbans this autumn for the first time ever. I always thought it was a style that didn’t quite gel with my style, since they lend themselves to more 40s styling than I usually go for. Oh boy, was I wrong! When I first started wearing them, I used a sheer scarf to wear as a bad hair cover.
Since Rubylea is a milliner, her turbans come in head sizes, which is a novelty I have yet to see on other turban-makers, and one I really like. I’m wearing an S which fits a head size of 55-57cm. Does that mean that much to me personally? Not particularly. However, for others — like a friend of mine who happens to have a giant head — that makes it much more accessible.
But what I will say is that this fits like a dream. It’s a full turban in a stretch velvet, so you always get a great fit, regardless if you’re wearing it as part of a hairstyle, or as a hair cover. The hair cover is my go-to, because I’ve been pretty lazy with my hair recently, and it makes me look great every time!
Rubylea turbans are handmade, too, which means that she is happy to accommodate custom orders, and next year I’ll show you my custom Carmen style turban!
And because it’s Christmas, I had to accessorise with my Vendula London Toy Shop Pouch bag! They’re still available, too!
Merry Christmas, guys!
I’m taking a break from blogger over the festive period, so I hope you all have an amazing Christmas, and a safe and happy New Year. I’ll see you guys in 2019 for more style fun!
