Headwear Appreciation Post Part 5: Hair Corsages and Flowers

Hair corsages are the go-to look for a classic lolita. To me they posses a fairy tale charm and elegance. It's as if, at any moment, the girl is going to burst out into song and have a little blue jay land on their finger, singing along with her. The brand, Victorian Maiden, almost exclusively sells different arrangements of flowers as their hair accessories.  Flowers can be worn by anyone with any hairstyle. Plus, there's the added bonus of being inexpensive and easy to make. Here are some lolita tutorials on how to add some flora to your look.

The Victorian Era even utilized a language with flowers! Check out this website to put a little meaning in your hair accessories.

Here are some lovely lolita models using hair corsages. All are from Victorian Maiden except the top two which are Mary Magdalene.


  1. Mary Magdalene and Victorian Maiden make such pretty corsages. @_@ <3 I love the example with the pearl chains attached~. And the color of the burgundy one is gorgeous. @.@

    I think it's cute when corsages are also made into sweet colors and used in sweet-type coordinates, but that doesn't seem to common.

  2. I love the one with the pearl chains, too!

    That would be cute to see in a sweet coord. In bright cheerful colors, instead of the dusty cool colors of classic.

  3. uggh i love all that classic stuff!!
