"I have the 3 colours, I just love them! A complete fashion accessorie for me, makes any outfit look cool & chic! I wore the white headband for my wedding and it just made me feel like a true princess! Only down fall was the packaging, they came squashed and a little beating up, no box only plastic bag, was a major disappointed! A little tlc will put them right :) I'm discarding 1 star for packaging but for the headpiece truly 5 star+"
"I got the peach colour for a photoshoot and it's just as pictured, the colour is very pretty in person and like the other reviewers have said - the material is quite flexible to suit the crown of your head perfectly. However, I'm not sure I could pull this off for every day wear... I'll definitely rock it for special occasions though :)"
"wow this piece is sooo pretty! you really do feel like you're in a fairy tale. the crown isn't bendable but with its weight and the chain at the back offering additional length, this can sit pretty on any size head. i like the variation in size for the flowers which makes it look more real, and the peach color is just as gorgeous as pictured. i do find it a little dramatic for an everyday outfit. but it's an awesome addition to a pretty simple dress or for a special occasion."
"i got the peach color and loved it, then the white was also flattering..but the red was awful awful awful, first of all the roses looked like they were taken off these cheap dollar roses and the fabric was way different than the other two.
The biggest question of all is : where will i wear the red?? no idea at all :("

Review 5 for Mulberry Rose Crown
So disappointed with their packaging...
"I must say, I was extremely disappointed with the way FP shipped this item to me. I expected this delicate piece to be put in a box for shipment. However, it was just put in a plastic bag inside a plastic shipping package and arrived smashed and rather flat. I was surprised they'd do this. Maybe it's because of this, but the flowers on the crown I received was much smaller, limp and lifeless compared to the full beautiful flowers on the model. I shipped it back the same way they shipped it to me. Perhaps I'll find this item in one of their stores or purchase directly from Cult Gaia."

"I truly truly wish I could give this more than 5 stars. This is definitely the most beautiful thing i have ever owned by far. The quality and details are amazing. I bought the white crown and the photos do not do it justice. There are slight variations in the color tones to make the flowers look real. And indeed they do look so realistic. It fooled everyone who saw it today. This headpiece is pricey, yes. That's why I waited for so long...... I didn't want to drop $78 dollars on it and then they started rapidly disappearing online. Soon there was one left, in white. I bought it. I have never been so pleased with a splurge like that in my entire life. Its perfect with my personality.... I'm engaged and I know i'll be walking down the aisle in this crown. This is absolutely beautiful. Wear it with something floaty and a long skirt. wear it with a smile. If you are hesitant because of the price, please, please don't let it hold you back from this amazing crown. You won't regret it. I promise."
"I I purchased this in the peach color. It is so beautiful and well constructed. The manufacturer put great effort into adding subtle shade variations to the roses to make them more lifelike. The following is an unusual thing to mention but may be relevant to others: I have a big head and it is hard to find hats that fit its circumference. This crown has an adjustable chain that when fully expanded fits by huge head. As you can see from the attached photos, the crown is fuller than most of the fp.com photos. If you zoom you can see that some roses have been pruned from the crown to give it a more sparse natural look. This is certainly an option but it looks great the way it comes. My only regret is that both colors sold out so quickly. I was hoping the ivory would still be in stock so I could purchase it this month. Please bring in more rose crowns FP! <3"
"I bought the Mulberry color and I am soo happy with it. The paper flowers are so detailed and the color is so soft and life like. The crowns come more full looking like the ivory photos. The Mulberry crown that is being featured on a lot of other outfits looks like it has been pruned a bit. This crown is so beautiful and even though it is a statement piece it is more subtle than costume looking. I can def see this crown being worn with a plain white dress to counter the statement that is it."
