Why not going for really sophisticated headgear for Christmas instead of topping your head with stupid reindeer antlers from the fun shop? Even if your dress is rather plain, the right fascinator will turn you into the brightest star of the evening. This is the "not very" Christmas range 2012 from Pearls & Swine. Breathtaking headpieces made for girls who like to dress up, but are maybe a little bit tired of the usual christmas kitsch. Among the creations full of fantasy, there is a purple bambi waiting for you as well as a pretty red winter rose and a Carmen Miranda inspired fruit hat.
It's very hard to decide on a favourite from this range, but I am madly in love with the disco and glitter balls fascinator with the name Space Oddity (shown in the middle). Metallic colours are one of the big things in fashion for spring and that's why I am convinced this one will have a lot of wonderful appearances. I can't stop thinking about how it would look with a pink Maison Martin Margiela for H&M candy clutch (seen in this post) or a metallic trench coat form Burberry Prorsum (seen at Vogue). Another highlight are is the red shoes fascinator, called Dorothy's delight. Which girl doesn't dream of being Dorothy from Wizard of the Oz and having magical glitter shoes?
The nice side effect of this range not being christmas themed in a very classical way is, you can easily wear most of the pieces during the whole year. So please dear Santa, bring me the disco balls fascinator, the red shoes fascinator and something beautiful form this range to every other nice girl! If you can't get enough of this wonderful headwear like me: There is more on the Pearls & Swine page, waiting to be discovered.
Which fascinator is the highlight of the Christmas or New Years Eve outfit of your dreams?
