Cocktail Hats and Fascinators

By .

Little cocktail hats and feathery, flowery fascinator headpieces have been around since the 1800’s.  An alternative to a large, wide brimmed hats, they are the perfect finishing touch for prom dresses, cocktail outfits,  evening gowns and wedding dresses.   A fabulous vintage look that has been very popular in England and Australia for quite some time and, to my delight,  has finally caught on over here in the United States.  There are now many talented craftspeople offering their versions of these chic little sculptures for your crowning glory!

So if you’ve got an event coming up this spring or summer.  Please visit some of the sites below to find yourself a fabulous, fascinating vintage inspired hair accessory that’s sure to get you noticed!

    I’m attending a luncheon buffet at a posh hotel in England this summer and I’m thinking a lovely little fascinator will be just the ticket. I was inspired by the Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice.
