Fascination

10 May

I live in Southern California. And in Southern California we are pretty laid back. Most days I don my favorite pair of jeans and flip-flops and yes on occasion I say “dude.” So when I have the opportunity to attend an event that can be construed as even slightly formal I like to go all out!

This weekend when I attend the English Garden Tea at the Heritage House I will do so in style.

English women often where hats at formal events and fascinators have made a come back as well. Recently at the Royal wedding I saw a couple of princesses who looked like they had raided a closet backstage at Lady Gaga’s last concert.

Using this tutorial as a general guide, we created our own fascinators for this weekend’s tea.

We might look like little girls playing dress up at a pretend tea party, but who couldn’t use a fun trip back to their five year old self?!

    […] These are tiny little hats (and I’m known for having an oversized cranium) so I’ll wear mine more akin to a fascinator. […]
