"Hi Bonne! How are you? Thought I'd send you some photos from my wedding. Everyone loved the veil, it was the perfect touch and made a beautiful day even more meaningful. Thank you so much for your talent and artistry.
Regards, Jad Montenegro-Amor
ps. I have also included links to the ceremony and reception videos, in case they might be of any interest--if anything, simply to see your work perched on my head! "
Jad is a lovely bride who sent me an email all the way from Davao last year. She wanted a birdcage veil to wear to the church ceremony with a detachable feather clip to wear to the reception. Thank you so much Jad for sending me your lovely photos. :)
"Hi! Here are my wedding photos. Everybody loved my pillbox hat and fascinator. Others commented that they loved the European look of my ensemble and your wonderful hat and hair accessory did much to make it look so. Tnx! =)" -Apple
When I was a little girl, I wanted to be a ballerina or an ice skater. Maybe it had something to do with the fluidity of their movements, their grace and unbelievable flexibility--or maybe it was their outfits.
I took ballet lessons when I was a kid, but I got restless and moved on to other summer classes like tap dancing and, yes, hula dancing. I never really pursued any of them after only a few sessions, much to my grandmother's frustration. But still, seeing the trailer of Black Swan got me all excited. I can't wait to see it! I don't know if it's out yet here.
Maybe I'll wear one of these to the movie... I have yet to decide if I should wear black or white. Oh, and maybe throw in a tutu skirt to complete the outfit :)
My friend will be performing this Saturday with her jazz band, The Jive Project. She asked me to make a headpiece for her, circa 1950's style. :) Catch her wearing this fascinator on Saturday, Jan 22, 9pm at Chef and Brewer Ortigas.
Bonne head candy on Swissy is a fantastic coating for her sweet live performances. You can get a taste of her sugary sound here here. And if you want to see for yourself, get gig updates from her facebook group, SwissyMusic .
Bru, the gorgeous other half of design and illustration duo, Electrolychee wears this quirky owl fascinator. Also one of my favorite pieces:) Oh and a bit of trivia, Bru illustrated and designed my fab fab calling card.
This piece was inspired by the lovely French actress, Brigitte Bardot. Although she was hailed as a sex kitten of her time, I think her bubbly spirit also comes out in many of her photos. A cute headpiece of yellow silk organza and chiffon fabric, all sewn by hand to form this form this lovely whimsical elastic headband.
Great news for international buyers. I have finally set up my etsy account. Testing it out so I only have a few items on Etsy. If there are some items on my multiply shop that you like, please send me an email.
