I need a fascinator to go with my verity oyster dress.

I have to wear something in my hair and I can't do hats as have very fine hair.

I know they are suppose to be naff but so be it.

Please please someone help me find something.

ok bumping shamelessly

chocolate or ivory?

You could check out etsy or folksy?

No joy there.

Just found one I like and its out of stock.

Its so difficult as can't get to the shops so buying online is a bit of a gamble but
not sure where else I can look.

They should be called abominators wink. Why not get some pretty clips like this or this?

I have this hairclip to wear to a wedding on saturday..its down to £7

MinnieBloodBar Mon 17-Oct-11 18:30:02

Gilly I'd call that a fascinator [unhelpful]

No helpful advice, but I like them too. And I love the verity dress and it would totally suit me but I have nowhere to wear it to never mind the money

Its not like any fascinator Ive seen. Quite small in RL and discreet compared to fascinator Id say. Anyway, thought it was a nice subtle compromise as Im not a fan of the big curly wurly things on top of my bonce.

Nice, not naff things here: tramp millinery

No one needs a fascinator grin


perfumedlife Mon 17-Oct-11 18:59:36

Those are lovely OhBuggerArse.

I would say no, but then again I'm not particularly into fascinators. I am more of a tussled hair, with large flower clip type of girl. smile

Op, your dress is beautiful, but think about wearing a brighter clip/fascinator/shoes/bag or you will risk the grey/beige overkill and kind of disappear. Some purple or orange would really zing out the outfit.

monsoon have a gorgeous animal print fascinator/headband thing-its in the sale I think and bloody gorgeous!

FlabbyGleek Mon 17-Oct-11 19:06:56

I like this one:

but the ones on the tramp link are lovely!

Gillybobs Mon 17-Oct-11 19:09:02

I agree with perfumed, the Verity dress in oyster needs some oomph added by accessories. I bought leopard print/gold sandals and clutch to go with mine. Beige/cream accessories are a bit meh with it

Gorgeous dress. Why don't you go with an over-the-top buttonhole flower (on your bag if it's going to spoil your dress) rather than those silly head things.

I agree that it needs to be oommph up a bit.
Ok I have gold shoes to go with the dress and have brought a gold/pale nude flower type clip thingy.

Have decided to do hair in a side bun casual look so hopefully it will look alright.

Just need a bag now and all sorted. Was thinking about a beaded type small bag.

Any ideas?
