I bought a kick-ass fascinator for fiance’s sister’s wedding last September. It was a black raven feathered headpiece that cost $12 at Aldo. I wore it to the wedding and people looked at me weird. I think they had never seen one before and didn’t know what to make of it.
Total 360 at my friend’s wedding on May 7, about a week after the Royal Wedding. People asked me about my fascinator by name (note: they didn’t say “hair clip.” People actually knew the proper name).
I walked past an independent jewelry boutique the other day. It had a huge number of fascinators in all kinds of colours. And in the window? A clipping from a celeb magazine showing a bunch of pictures of Kate Middleton wearing some fabulous feathery hair accessories. Thanks for making them popular Kate! Checkout her headgear below.
BTW you should check out Blair Nadeau, she’s got some pretty sweet ones.
