Folksy Friday

Fridays seem to be getting sneakier and sneakier this summer. It's Monday morning, a whole new week is stretched out in front of you, then all of a sudden Friday creeps up faster than you can say Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch! OK admittedly it's gonna take some time to get that one out but it's such a fantastic word I had to chuck it in there.

Anyways anyways it would seem that it is once again time for a Folksy Friday and today I thought I'd choose fascinators. I have agreed to make a couple of hundred paper pom poms for my friends wedding next year and all that wedding talk last week got me starting to think about what to wear. Naturally I started with the accessories, and here's a few of my favourite hair adornments:

This beautiful peacock feather fascinator is made by Pearl and Ivy. All of their fascinators are lovely and they even give you instructions on how to wear your hair with them. I'll be giving it a go!

I love the fucia / magenta colour combo going on in this fascinator, sold by Talulah Blue. You'll also find corsages, brooches and even garters in the shop - one stop for wedding accessories!

I love love love this one! This "Beachball Headpiece" is made from ball pool balls and is sold by Hatastic! who sells several alternative and more traditional fascinators.

This magenta Flapper Fascinator is sure to stand out. Also available in aqua, cream and white, this 1920s inspired piece is sold by ClaraBows.

And finally this sweet Singapore Fascinator is from a range of handmade veils and fascinators sold by Tied & Feathered.

Now if I'm honest I'm probably more likely to go for something similar to the first one; I'm not really one for big, bright & loud. But they're all so much fun! I'm trying to picture my friends face if I turned up on her big day with beach balls stuck to my head. Hehe!
