not remotely fascinated by fascinators

I can't stand them. Every single wedding album on facebook is full of the hideous things. It seems to me women panic when confronted by wedding attire options and run for John Lewis, only to be cajouled into purchasing some overpriced flimsy feather item (which, by the way 78 billion other people will also be wearing in a similar colour) to stick on their heads. I feel passionate that we should bring back enormous hats and giant corsages. Now, I am not one to complain without providing a solution so here you go. Feast your fascinatored feathered out eyes on the amazing vintage head peices at ban.do, brought to our attention by the lovely daily candy people, they can customise anything to your specification and post it all the way to little HK! Or, when next in London, find your inner child/creative hub and make your own (or ask the assistant nicely) at VV Rouleaux. Phew...thank goodness I got that off my chest!

'their' heads...

We share exactly the same sentiments! I spent a recent wedding ranting about the god-awful things...we counted 16 by the end of the ceremony. Even men know this term (how? And what's so bl**dy fascinating about them anyway?)...unfortunately said men seem to think any protrusion from an outfit is a dreaded 'fascinator' and I was therefore on the receiving end of a 'compliment' on mine. "It's not a ****ing fascinator", I yelled (it wasn't even on my head, but pinned to my dress). "It's a corsage. KNOW THE DIFFERENCE!" I am NOT going to be put in that box!

I'm not sure I do agree...enormous pink flowers or other exciting feathered arrangements can look super cool and totally make an outfit. It has to be a statement piece though. Token guestures, grabbed from Accessorize on the way to the wedding, should be thrown as confetti rather than worn in the hair.

I have another question though... What can one wear to 'cover the shoulders in church' at a summer wedding? I'm so done with pashminas and if the dress is unusual it's tricky to find the right jacket. Any other ideas?
