Fascinated with Fascinators

What the heck is a fascinator? I wondered the same thing until I saw them at a bridal event a couple of weekends ago. They are hats. Not just hats. Also barrettes, combs and headbands. Basically anything you put in your hair. They're big in England. Ever since I saw these fascinators (and tried on a few) I haven't been able to stop thinking about them. I want one. I have no reason to wear it. But I'm a grown woman now and I feel like I should be able to wear what ever I want. So there. Maybe I will put one on while doing the dishes. Who am I kidding? I don't do the dishes. Maybe I'll put one on while working on my weddings. Let's call it an inspirational piece for my designs. Well, just because I have no reason for them - I figured some of my readers might :)

I found these on Etsy. Seller is called Powder Blue Bijoux. These are all very affordable.
I think the most expensive one shown below is $45.

And since I'm not a bride's a few I like that I want to get for my friends upcoming wedding.

So - what do you think? Are you digging the fascinators like me?


  1. I think these are amazing! We have done the photography for a lot of weddings and you always see the same traditional veils and hair pieces. I get really excited when a bride wears a beautiful flower or hair piece like these!

  2. they feel very vintage and old a GOOD way. :) i've been thinking of doing something similar for my hair, including a retro hairstyle for a wedding i'm in this august.
