Bando

Whenever I visit Bando, I undoubtedly end up lusting over almost everything in their shop. The mixing of feathers, velvet, silk, satin, sequins and jewels is magical, and if I won the lottery I think I'd buy every piece. Until then though, I'll just have to save up my money...







These two are my favourites of all - I adore the blue and green peacock feathers of the headband, whilst the soft pastel shades of the feather clip make me wish that Spring was here already!

Using some pink satin ribbon and five little bows, I attempted my own DIY version which pales in comparison to those at Bando. I intend to use burgundy velvet and antique cream lace for my next project, and hopefully it will turn out even better!

All of these are darling and many of them could live quite happily upon my head here in 1955 where I am currently residing. Lovely wonderful feathers and fascinators. YUM.
