In July we decided to do our first winter themed shoot and we dressed our models in pieces originally designed and produced by Dandi. We had the opportunity to work with photographer, Kelsi Lyla, and she effectively captured the essence of stylish design on a wintery day.
We’ve finally done our first tutorial on Dandi’s head wraps! Below we have demonstrated how to do the flower to the side look. Please read the step by step instructions and you will find it is really simple. These head wraps are the perfect accessory to make any outfit complete or to change your bad hair day into a more confident look for the day.
Step 1: To make sure you make a perfect flower you will need to make sure the wrap is at unequal lengths. I would say about 5 cm difference in length.
Step 2: Place the band in the center of the front of your head.
Step 3: Wrap the band around the head
Step 4: Bring the band around back to the front of your head.
Step 5: Twist the band to secure the knot.
Step 6: Now you have come to your final steps. Start circling the band starting with the shorter piece.
Step 7: Bring the longer piece around the shorter piece you have just wrapped around. Continue doing this until your flower starts to form.
Step 8: Neaten your flower by shaping it to how you would like it. Don’t be sacred to be rough with it as the wire stays secure.
The bow to the side is a great way to switch it up a little bit! This is such a cute alternative to the flower.
Repeat step one to four from the previous tutorial. But this time start with the band wrapping it from the back of the head.
Step 5: Twist the the two pieces around each other once.
Step 6: Flatten the bow and start to shape it.
The turban is another great way to switch up this look. We love it worn with your hair down, it gives this look a completely different feel over all.
Step 1: Place the band in the center of the front of your head. The band can be at equal lengths for this look.
Step 2: Wrap the band around the head.
Step 3: Bring the band around back to the front of your head.
Step 4: Twist both pieces round doing a 180 and taking it back the way you came from.
Step 5: This is your final step. Secure the band by twisting the final pieces and make a small circle shape at the back of your head.
Thank you for having a look at our tutorial. Happy head wrapping!
We had the opportunity of working with Tyme Photography again on this styled shoot in woods. I must admit we really enjoyed the drastic change of location.
We went for quite a simple look that really stood out with the forest surrounding. Our model Cayley is wearing one of our favorite looks pairing a soft feminine nude mesh skirt with combat boots and dark lips to give this beautiful combo a bit of an edge.
We went for quite the opposite look with Brogan…with a simple denim and classic polka dot print dress paired with some chunky heels and fun yellow necklace she really brightened up the neutral backdrop.
Ripped denim shorts have been a huge trend this last year. Our slouchy aztec print shirt makes this look a little more easy and relaxed.
We went for a more whimsical look here. Clashing patterns with a blue floral skirt and grey polka dot crop top this was one of our more feminine parings.
Whether it’s paisley, dots or stripes-Dandi loves patterns! This basic black and yellow summer dress is easily dressed up with nude wedge boots or simple flats for a more toned down look. A light breezy maxi dress is ideal for our hot summer days- the neutral tones on the dress make it an essential buy as it can be paired with any cardigan or denim jacket for cooler nights.
I love the cute floral crop top paired with this vintage high waisted denim skirt. Its a fine line when wearing a crop top to not make it look to bare and pairing it with a high waisted item is definitely the way to do it.
Lets just face it, suspenders make any outfit look cute and effortless!
Love this yellow skirt with red vintage straps
This lace bodysuit worn with lace light pink suspenders is amazing for summer
Paired with a long sleeve top and over sized scarf makes this item a must have for Autumn
We were very excited to launch Dandi at collective market last week Sunday! Dandi customers were very enthusiastic about our range. With our mix of classic vintage items combined with some newly designed items by Dandi, its no wonder it was such a success!
These delicious red velvet Dandi cupcakes were given away with each Dandi purchase.
