L is for Louis Mariette
Ok so this is a kinda naughty one, I love his stuff, but love it so much more since my parents suprised me with one of his head pieces (for my wedding) that I had been fawning over for ages, after seeing it in one of the many wedding magazines I have been reading. He is a milliner and judge on Britain's Next Top Model. His stuff is simply stunning, see his whole collection here.
So let me explain. Since I have been engaged I was going to have a white bridal riding hat for the wedding, as hats were kinda my trademark whilst in my teens. So riding hat, bird cage veil and feathers, that was always the plan. That was until I found this piece! Then I was in love but at around £150 I thought it was a bit pricy just for a headband. I never thought I would have it so continued looking for the perfect hat (which by the way is impossible to find!) Then one day when I was out with mum she was all excited because she had a suprise for me and told me she had ordered me the dream headband! Yay! They are made to order so it took around 2 months for it to arrive but it is stunning and I am so so happy with it. The wedding has a very vintage feel to it, especially 1920's/1930's art deco inspiration. So it is totally perfect! Without further ado here it is!
And here are a few other pieces to whet your appetite!
I hope you like them as much as I do.
23 weeks to the wedding!
