The Braid


Sleek, tousled, french, up-high, down-low, etc. The versatile braid. I've seen a few girls around with it and decided to try it today. My hair is super long, almost down to my butt (as I haven't cut my hair in 5 months - not my choice). Anyway, despite the length of my hair, my braid seemed short and stumpy. My extensions would've definitely come in handy to get the look I was trying to achieve. Will try it again properly when I have more time.
Here are a few braided looks to try out.

Here is my sloppy rendition of the braid along with my outfit of the day.

amazing shoes!
I feel you on the length of braid vs length of hair. Mine is nearly down to my arse as well... yet my braid is always awkward and subpar. My trick is to do it very loosely and pull down while I criss cross. Eh, seems to work well enough.

Who designs the shoes that you're wearing? You can't give a close up of such an amazing shoe and not tell!

The girl in the second picture shuts it down in terms of the braid.

I think you did an excellent "real life" rendition.

@ The Queen of Hearts: I purchased the shoes at Forever 21 about 2-3 months ago. You may also buy them here
