How many times did your dad screech at your 18 year old self that less is more when you were tottering out the front door with your gaggle of gals for a night out, referring to your make-up and not the ridiculously short skirt you were sporting obvs? For me, the saying really does crop up time and time again and for this fascinator less really is more.
Stripping it back to basics, focusing on composition, highlighting the backward positioned shimmering petals against the deep round base. Completely hand stitched, it was both painful on the fingers and terribly time consuming but, my ooh my, was it worth the swear words! The result is definitely one of the most effortlessly elegant accessories I’ve made to date, a sophisticated match for a plush party any time of the year.
Now call me a little biased, but these two ladies below aren’t too hard on the eyes are they? Oooh no! They also happen to be two of the kindest souls I know. So you might just say I’m winning when I tell you that not only am I lucky enough to be bezzie mates with these two gorgeous girlies, but they didn’t even need bullying into buying a selection of my festival floral crowns for the finale of the summer fun.
Where our recent, and long over due catch up was excessively tasteful, with far too much food and Prosecco, I can only imagine the festival scene a little different. However, whether it be rain or shine, a glass of bubbly or a can of cider, I am sure, they, along with their new floral hairpieces, brought a touch of class to even the dingiest of campsites.
Girls, love you long time.
