Tim Burton Boudoir Shoot

Black and white striped headpiece designed for the stunning and talented Amanda of Anthomanic!  

When she sent me inspiration for her Tim Burton inspired shoot full of stripes, black and white lacy goodness and deep purple accents...I flipped. 

No. Seriously. My brain melted. I couldnt stop making hats.

These are just a peek to the boudoir portion of the shoot! Just WAIT til you see the set and the other hats! You're gonna freak out! 

Thank you Samantha Smith Photography for being so bloody talented!

Happy Friday and Happy BLUE MOON!!

When I was engaged in 2009 The Wedding Chicks had just busted out of the gates with their DIY wedding blog and needless to say - I was ALL over it. Here we are a measly 3 years later and my work is featured there?!?! This is so awesome I hadnt even dreamt it!! Thank you thank you thank you!

Headpiece Inspiration:

Invitation By Shel Silverstein in The Sidewalk Ends
                                                                                    If you are a dreamer, come in.
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer . . .
If you’re a pretender, 
come sit by my fire,
For we have some flax golden tales to spin.
Come in!
Come in!

I love this color palette. Top hat was handmade using a grey silk dupioni, dusty pink satin and tulle. I love gold on anything! Vintage gold leaf found at a flea market in Vermont! The gold/brown goose feather makes it so subtly earthy.

 Could cry over this bouquet by Anthomanic
You may recognize the birdcage veil piece from the Cherry Blossom Collection. This thing seriously looks a-mazing on everyone!! 

This hat looks good at every angle. Mission accomplished.

Honored to have been a part of it!! 

Vintage Lace Hair Wreath

Featured on  ETSY WEDDINGS!!! And HOW! 

I think I dreamed this hair wreath because when I found oodles of this creamy lace in great grand ma ma's sewing kit, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. It is now immortalized on Etsy and as part of the delightful Cherry Blossom Collection.  Wedding Trends INDEED.

In its element
