I have a real love affair with fascinators, especially ones with a veil. When putting together a outfit, usually I want my hair to be a main feature and anything I put on my head I want to compliment the hairstyle- not completely cover it up.
The Valentina Cocktail Fascinator from White Purls fits the bill perfectly! Plus, now that I have copper hair, I can wear a black fascinator without it getting completely lost in my hair.
The main part of the Valentina is a round 5.25″ diameter shape and covered in a beautifully soft silk/bamboo blend yarn, knitted in a King Charles Brocade pattern. This is topped off with gorgeous shiny black pearl shaped beads to give it extra dimension and detail.
Attached to the fascinator is a small black veil, just enough to come across one side of the face which is perfect in my opinion. The fascinator attaches with comb on the underside and there is elastic which you can tuck under your hair (not your chin) but I like to loop it all underneath the fascinator so it doesn’t mess with my hair.
The Valentina Cocktail Fascinator is a wonderful example of the millinery craft, the quality is top notch and it arrives in it’s own hat box to keep it safe. This fascinator is US$325 and there is also a white version as well as some other stunning variations.
Thank you to Tony McKay for the gorgeous photos, the dress I am wearing is a vintage beauty that will be featured on the blog with more photos from this set in the coming weeks.
