Off to aweddign.
Have a very Vivienne Westwood stylee outsit going on.
A mad puffed up skirt, platform wedges, little top, bra and cleavage on show.

think it needs one of those mad hats, in black or red, that sit aside ones head.
Any ideas?

A FASCINATOR.
That's what they are called.

Fascinators just have feathery bits I think TC, no structure/brim as such
They are all over this season (M&S, Debenhams have them in the High Street, also John Lewis), ditto little mad hats. I was at a wedding yesterday and one guest had a striking cerise pink confection like you describe. However I did not think to ask her where she got it, useful aren't I hmm

Yeah a bit of bar on show, but it's not really a bra it'll be a sort of basquey type thing, just able to see top of it, in either bright red or cerise pink, I think.

Don't think I want to buy my fascinator in Claires Accessories, or Boots tbh!

something like this??

Marina Sun 20-Jul-08 20:59:44

Hers was an inverted little saucer of dark pink straw with feathers and a veil, very dashing
I would have looked and felt a complete twat in it tbh but she looked terrific
Dress in similar corseted/structured vein to yours by the sound of it but not Vivienne Westwood and no combinations on show as far as I could tell

Here. She is an acquaintance of mine and the hats are lovely.

Thomcat Sun 20-Jul-08 21:09:53

Madamez- he's taken a job NOT making hats otherwise thay would have been great!
