BANTU KNOTS


Hey guys the braids are gone :( letting go of the braid life was hard but they were snatching my edges harder than Beyoncé's announcement of her baby twins names...
I'm really in the mood to experiment with new protective hairstyles and I after taking down my braids I randomly decided to do bantu knots with some left over braiding hair using the rubber band method. *Quick tut* (I parted my hair secure it with a rubber band, plait the hair with my own hair and halfway change from plaiting to twisting all the way to the end and then wrap it around itself to form the knot)

I havent worn this hairstyle since my childhood, my mum would put my hair this way after washing and towel drying it. I hated it. Now, I think I kinda like it lol...funny how times change.

HOW TO DRESS LIKE A REVOLVE GIRL: NEGIN MIRSALEHI


Who doesn't love the fashion looks at Coachella? Second to the line up, wearing our best festival outfit is possibly the number 1 reason most of us want to go. This year I became totally obsessed with Revolve. Not only am I coveting every item on their website, I just love their vibe at events. They are definitely a brand I want to work with in the future.

MY TOP 10 REVOLVE PICKS

When I spotted the crochet lace dress, below, on blogger Negin Mirsalehi, left, I just couldn't get it out of my head, but the way my bank account is set up I was not about to buy it anytime soon...lol 

                                 ↓ HARVEST DRESS BY MAJORELLE FOR REVOLVE 



Cue the dupe of the century, its soooo gorgeous...

What I'm wearing:

Crochet Lace Dress - Pretty Little Thing sold out  (similar below)
White T-shirt Dress - Primark in store (similar here & here)
Yellow Sunglasses - Asos (click here)
Western Belt - Asos - (click here)
Open Toe Boots - H&M sold out (similar here)

I can't even begin to tell you how much I'm in love with this dress! Its actually a beach cover up so I wore a longline vest underneath to hide the transparency of it. The intricacy of the crochet lace really makes the dress feel and look like it costs considerably more than £28! 

Revolve RRP = £204.71     Pretty Little Thing = £28.00

Save = £171.71!


At the moment its sold out :( but I would say keep stalking the website because this happened to me first time round, I'm sure it will come back in stock; alternatively I have linked similar dresses below!

Hope you guys love this look just as much as I do! I'm thinking of doing a blog series where I recreate celeb/blogger looks for less. What do you guys think, is that something you would like to see, let me know in the comment section below!
