The Real Reason for Braided Hair


My sisters and I know the real reason for braided hair. It’s not to look pretty. It’s to keep your hair neat and untangled. My hair would snarl if you looked at it wrong, so Mom would French braid it. I remember when my parents sent me to spend a week with their friends in Sioux City who were as close to grandparents as I had. When Mom was done braiding it, my skin was stretched taut and I am sure I had a mini-facelift. Under strict orders, I left the braids in while bathing and showering, washing them without unbraiding them – and sure enough, they stayed in place for the entire week. She had no time for loose, casual braids like this lovely one from Anya Ohmai for Hair Fair. A braid that did not ache for a few hours was unworthy of the name.


I am dressed for the heat and casual chichi with this gorgeous halter dress from Gizza. This is the denim option and comes with a texture hud to allow three ways to wear it. This dress comes in several design trios from bright summer colors to sophisticated blacks. I love the embroidery on the top. It reminds me so much of an embroidered table runner a friend of mine from Oaxaca made for my birthday. What was so incredibly amazing about it was that the back side looked as pristine and perfect as the front – free of stray stitches and running threads. The L.Warwick wedges are just perfect with it.


I am wearing the new full line from Glam Affair. It’s called Rose and has the distinctive Glam Affair luminosity. Obviously Aida Ewing never sleeps what with releasing skins at several events per month and finding time to do a complete multi-tone line of a new skin. The jewelry is from Maxi Gossamer, released several months back at Collabor88. It’s texture change so there are many options. The hair is one of the adorable styles from Ohmai! for Hair Fair. All of her styles have a “Tweeter” version featuring lovable little birds that chirp while you wear them. Anya has the gift of knowing what you will want before you want it.
