Handcrafted Floral Headpieces | 2013 Collection: Yelena Smirnova
Winner announced at the end of the post!
Evening oh gorgeous ones! Hope you had a fab weekend… hot weather… bbq’s… sunny parks… yadda yadda. If it’s nearing your wedding date here’s a top tip. Resist the urge to sunbathe. And if you can’t, please remember to slather yourself in factor 50 and keep an eye on those tan lines. Many a pretty gown has been blighted by the dreaded tan line.
So what have we got going on today for you? It’s competition time again. We (I) do spoil you a bit don’t we. So today’s competition is to WIN one of these beautiful handcrafted floral headpieces by Yelena Smirnova. So get stuck right in and I’ll tell you what to do win one of these beauts at the end of the post.
My inspiration mostly was drawn from the elegant opulence of the 1920’s and 1930’s eras. My aim was to create a fresh and modern collection with a nod towards vintage design. I played with two contrast looks, on the one hand, it is a dramatic bohemian charm and on the other it is romantic and soft lightness. This exquisite collection features delicate French lace, handmade silk flowers in creamy-white and blush hues and intricate beadwork. I hope any bride can find the suitable headpiece from my collection which would be right for her hair style and accentuate her individuality.
