Real Bride: Jad

"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.

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.  :)

black swan

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 :)

having a hoot

Ghyl looks fantastic wearing a piece that combines my two favorites--owls and sequins.  Each sequin was sewn by hand onto felt fabric. The effort was definitely worth it.

Before I got into making hats, I used to do patchwork pieces.  This was about 3 or 4 years back.  Now I'm thinking of incorporating patchwork into my headpieces.  The hunny bunny set could be a start :)

the doctor is in

The lovely Dr. Valencia wears many hats, including this fab Bonne fascinator.  Many thanks for sending me a photo :) I'm looking forward to seeing my lovely pieces on your big day!

Bonne Inspiration: Brigitte Bardot

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.
