Ariana Grande wears my lace ears!

Recently, I had cause to google "Ariana Grande". I'm either very old or spend way too much time alone in my work room, or both, thinking up new designs to spring on my buyers, but have to admit, I didn't know who Ariana was!! There, I'm out, I've said it, I'm rumbled!!
Low and behold, there is Ariana Grande in many images, wearing my lace bunny ears and my white lace cat ears. Oh my goodness, she looks as cute as a button and more!! I vaguely remembered sending an order out to a lady with a pretty name, some time ago! It only took me nine months to realise!!! So, here is Ariana Grande sporting my ears in all her glory!!  If you want the same ears as Ariana, they're still for sale to order in my Etsy and Folksy shops, thank you for reading, catch you next time! Images will take you straight to the headbands!

Baroque jewel box bijoux bird fascinators.

The decorative feather birds I use for my fascinators are becoming harder to find, but I still have a few in my box of tricks. I've decided to team them up with Japanese kimono fabrics and lots of gold and colourful trim and edging details. I have an obsession with Baroque, Rococo vintage circus and carousel moods at the moment, so these little handmade hats are designed to feel this vibe and look like trinket or musical jewellery boxes. The hats are listed in both my Etsy and Folksy shop and look great teamed with a circus neck ruff for that vintage cirque feel, which is going to be big in the up and coming party season!

Jabot time in Folksy!

It's an unusual word "Jabot". I looked up the meaning and found this quote,
 "a decorative ruffle or other arrangement of lace or cloth attached at the neckline and extending down the front of a woman's blouse or dress or, formerly, of a man's shirt."
So I have been trying my own versions of  jabots and come up with one fabulous design, handmade by me, using stunning lace which comes in black or white. I've made lovely lace ruffled neckbands with ribbon ties and added a pearl diamant√© button. It's a great item for adding the finishing touch to a stempunk vibe outfit or an alternative wedding ensemble. I'm going to make one for myself and wear it with velvet pants, or maybe just to add an edge to a jeans look. I have several of these jabots listed in my stores, here's the Folksy shop, thank you for reading! www.talulahblue.folksy.com

The Fascinating fascinators of Folksy!

Hats, hats hats! Here we are at the height of summer in the UK and this means handmade cocktail hats and fascinators season for me in my little workshop. I love making silk and satin cocktail hats, which I can adorn with any multitude of birds, embroidery and beading, vintage trims, or just add a simple chic bow and veil.  Everything is handmade by me, with my own unique charm! I make up my ideas as I go along! Most of my fascinator customers are based in the UK, but of course International buyers have always been more than welcome, as it only takes a few days to make up and ship most of my creations, to any country. I have new designs in my Folksy shop and will continue to add to my collection throughout the season.

Summer is now up and running here in the UK. Our English weather can't be relied upon, but when the sun shines, it's one of the best places to be! With summer, we are now into the wedding season. I make a selection of bridal items, accessories and cocktail hats. I have just listed a few pieces in my Etsy shop. There's a bridal opera shrug in crisp taffeta and a matching sash belt to tie into a bow. I also have a few cocktail hats and my usual birdcage and bandeau veils. Thank you for reading as always Xxx
