All About Accessories

I’m obsessed with head accessories. By that statement, I mean anything relating to the head, whether it’s a hat, a hair clip, a head band, a hair doughnut, or a random scrap of fabric I tie around my head and call good.

With this obsession of mine, what I wore as a veil/headdress on my wedding day was incredibly important. It couldn’t be just anything. I’m incredibly picky, which can be good but can also mean everything I like lies well outside my budget.

To make matters worse, I have a very  thick head of hair. It makes wearing women’s hats nearly impossible. For instance, my husband brought home an adorable XL men’s hat the other day. Pretty sure I kissed him in excitement. The hat fit perfectly. Yup. I have that much hair.

So for my wedding, my fate was pretty much determined the day I inherited my dad’s thick hair. If I wanted a fitted 20s style headdress (which I did) that I could afford, then I needed to make it myself.

Please ignore the hubby's facial hair here. I promise he isn't as creepy as he looks!

Thus, began the journey. I made my veil, then made a fun black headdress for a special event months later, and made my best friend’s veil last September.

Now, I’m feeling the head accessory itch again (and no, I don’t have lice). I’m feeling something fun . . . for everyday . . . with feathers. What do you think?
