wedding :: xoelle bow ties

Having a bow tie crush on these beauties by Xoelle! Seriously, why should brides have all the fun!? Xoelle is run by Laura who often calls herself elle. Thus, xo elle. She handmakes each bow tie using repurposed vintage neckties and button down shirts.

In her words,“I love finding items that are unloved, forgotten, discarded, and sometimes abused, and repurposing them. I love the history and sentiment they retain.”

wedding :: fascinators by emilliner

I have been invited to a fascinator making hen party, so I have been scouring the internet for some eye catching inspiration when I stumbled on Emily Clark’s etsy shop, Emilliner.

With her use of feathers and silk, some of her work reminds me of origami. She combines a nod to vintage millinery and graphic silhouettes, offering the modern bride a stylish alternative to the traditional veil. To see more of her work, visit her website here.
