Its a bright cloudy day....

I know it's a contradiction, but bright and cloudy do create a feeling of cozy joy.. I'm feeling inspired today by the amazing pieces for Spring 2012. Stunning pieces by Aurelie Bidermann, Edie Bargo, and Vionnet really inspire some of my new pieces for Bridal 2012.
 The contrast and contradiction between hard soft, cloudy and bright, edgy and soft. It's the finest feeling of femininity and masculinity with a touch of romance. Don't we all love that? Have a beautiful Saturday everyone....

Oh Jackie O!

Pillbox Hat by Tom Palumbo.
Oh how I've been wanting to finally create a mod and demure pillbox hat for a bride to sport down the runway, eh hem, I mean aisle... I finally finished one, and I'm happy with the result. My love for has started when I was in the 4th grade and I bought my first hat that resembled New Kids on the Block Style fedora, but in a girly way. I was made fun of by the kids who wear foreign to the fashion ( lol), but I didn't care. I knew I loved it and wanted to wear it all the time. Now that I'm much older, I still find that my love for fashion and hats has never died. Here is my inspiration behind my recent creation, le Pillbox Hat.. oh lala

Oh How I love... Stephen Jones!

 My Own Creation:

Stephen Jones, British milliner, has been inspiring me so much these last weeks. Being so busy with my two daughters and working on orders, I have found wonderful exile in sifting through amazing photos of his creations. His recent collaboration with Dior, John  Galliano, and L'Wren Scott ( to name a few!) for Spring 2011 came just in time, since we are all coming off of the honeymoon of the Royal Wedding fashion frenzy! Thank you Stephen for inspiring us who believe that romance, adventure, and class start with an amazing hat!

I Love Dita.

For this evenings' inspiration of fashion, sophistication and timeless beauty, I present my love of Dita Von Teese's style. Timeless, femme fetale, chic, pure, and true to style, not to trend.  I'm finishing up a really cute and exotic bridal hat (which I will post tomorrow after I post to my Etsy shop :), and I was so truly inspired by Dita. Here are a couple of my favorite looks by her's truly!

J'adore to a Beautiful Bride!

I absolutely love when I can work with a bride who has a unique vision for her special day.  I had made this piece originally for a stylish holiday or valentines day wedding look.  The bride that contacted me for a custom order (above) wanted this in a creamy ivory satin, French merry widow veiling and a crystal feather brooch instead. I was totally excited and up for the challenge of a new creation.  I think that is what really has driven me to start my own small business; because I LOVE working with people, and creating something for them that they can't find anywhere else! I love the creativity behind every brides idea, and how they see themselves on that special day.  Everyone is different and I love it!

Thanks Arielle for your inspiration, and I'm so excited to see this on you on your special day. You'll be gorgeous! It made me want to take a plane to Paris and take a hot air balloon ride!
