Jamie Allen from flOwer bUcket bOUtique wanted to share: the GRETCHEN – Vintage Style Fascinator“Like many creations in my shop, this piece was inspired in process. Some times they are made to match clothing lines like Matilda Jane, or inspired by the sweet little and big girls in my life, but some times they don’t know what they will be without a little tinkering. This was one of those pieces. I just started fiddling with the purple fabric and noticed it’s unique melting quality and not wanted to repeat the stacked flower adventure of the piece I just finished, I started bidding until it formed into this unique flower like shape, added a classic rolled rosette and topped it off with a little lace. I was so excited to almost one year later get to finally photograph it here on my sweet niece. Inspired! I hope my pieces inspire your life as much as they inspire mine.”

Lexi – Elegant strapless bridal bib made of a luxurious crepe-back satin material with wide black satin ribbon and beaded applique across the bodice. White only. Machine washable on gentle/delicate cycle. Color of ribbon is optional. Can be personalized with embroidered name of couple and wedding date.
