how to wear your hair with a headband veil

one of my favorite bridal hair resources, the bliss book, has featured my headband birdcage veil as their hair adornment of the week! head on over to the post to check out their suggestion for a gorgeous updo to pair with my headband veil, and check out their book as well for more great inspiration.

i love a piled-high intricate updo with this veil, but it’s such an easy style to wear that it also works great with flowing, long hair worn down or in a half-updo as well. all you have to do is pop it on, adjust it slightly forward or backward to suit your taste, and you’re good to go!


new cage veil: long birdcage veil with blusher

23 Oct

2 layer long birdcage veil

sometimes i get the feeling that i make cage veils just to live out my mad men early 60s style fantasy. get a load of this veil, betty draper: it’s my new long birdcage veil with blusher, made from shoulder length russian netting, with two layers, so you can wear it over your face for drama, then fold it back for the kiss. versatile, no?

new bridal veil: black vintage birdcage veil

21 Oct

black wedding veil cocktail hat

the new veils just keep on coming, no? i’ll have new fascinators posted soon, but i’m just so psyched about my new styles. this one i just adore… it’s made from vintage french netting in the most delicious, drapable soft diamond weave that i just can’t get enough of. the supply of the netting is super limited, so get it while it’s hot, as they say.

i think this would be particularly great for bridemaids doing a breakfast at tiffany’s look, but maybe i’m just audrey hepburn obsessed. what do you think of bridesmaids in birdcage veils?

sheer bird cage veil

as mentioned yesterday, i’m continuing to add items from my new collection to my etsy shop over the next week. today is my new tulle birdcage veil, which i think looks a lot like the most glamorous cumulus cloud you’ve ever seen.

more to come tomorrow…

p.s. this photo is 100% stunning… thanks to kellan studios for all of the amazing photography for my new collection!

1960s green and yellow crystal brooch with veil

my latest collection hasn’t been posted on etsy yet (lots of little details to work through in the next week), but i’m starting to think through my next steps for the collection after this one, since spring will be here before we know it. and i’m thinking it’s going to be full of one-of-a-kinds featuring huge, vintage brooches.

i took the plunge and hunted down a few deliciously ’60s pieces, including this awesome green & yellow one above… i think i’m in love. (and i think this is just my way of acting out my betty draper fashion fantasy.)

can’t wait to work with them.
