Mad Hatters

It doesn’t matter if you love the minimalist or the maximalist when it comes to headpieces, there is no denying the beauty of the hats, crowns and veils that have graced the couture catwalks for many years and since I have been pretty poor on the creativity front of late, I’m sharing with you some of my famous favourites, to get the ball rolling and the needle and thread out again.

Tonight I have been getting in to the Christmas spirit, preparing for the present wrapping and swirling delicate ribbons into long loose curls whilst watching my all time favourite Christmas film, Miracle on 34th Street, and munching on my first mince pie of the season. Talk about clichés, I know. Then, during the finale of the film, where I am yet again, screeching at the screen that I too, believe, believe in Santa Clause, I decided my time would be better spent making some sassy swirls to be worn to some swanky festivities. So the deliciously wrapped present idea was short lived, one hour and forty eight minutes to be precise, here’s to trusty tin foil, the most efficient, effective and shiny wrapping paper ever invented, and here’s to another new fascinating fascinator creation by yours truly.
