The owner was very descriptive and great in communicating her ideas about the build. The hat turned out wonderful! Can't wait to give it to the bride to be for the bachelorette party.

These were so perfect for a bachelorette party I was throwing! We did the Kentucky Bourbon Trail and I purchased for bride to be, maid of honor, and mother of the bride. They were so adorable and put together really well - the 2 clips really helped it stay put all day and night. Everyone commented all day on how perfect they were. Seller was super responsive (even let me add on the mother of the bride after original order) and they shipped in great shape with plenty of time. Great experience all around!

About

"Reawakening the spirit of those who display."

Every day we are forced to pull our uniform over our heads. Even when we are not "working," there are still silent rules forcing us to fall in line with what not to wear. These structured rules completely prohibit the beauty of true self-expression and hinder the individual.

My work merges the desire to break free of the every day with the challenge to bring fashion back to fantasy, ingenuity, individuality and boldness.

I find the designs and thoughts of the Roaring 20s, 30s, early burlesque and the secret lives of Victorian era women, inspirational. My passion for the historically fabulous leads me to estate sales, where I often find vintage accents and forgotten bits and pieces. When incorporated into my works, the accompanying spirit of a vintage element tends to animate and illuminate. The vibrant sprays of feathers and the showering of sparkling crystals on my works are exemplary of my quest to capture the essence of happiness in its most spectacular form.

By employing the old and new, subtle and decorative, I hope to refresh the sore eyes of those who see and reawaken the dormant spirit of those who display.

Refunds and Exchanges
Each piece is unique, special, and should be handled and stored delicately. I take pride in the fact that all of my items are handmade and my extensions are hand dyed. Any variations in the color, distressing in any material, variations in material, artistic chips and designs - make the product special, individual and are not considered flaws. Hand dyed extensions can take on minor, unique characteristics and may appear slightly different in listing pictures. Any variations in extension colors are not considered flaws.

No refunds or exchanges.

With regard to feather trees: My feather trees are handmade, delicate and one-of-a-kind. Please note that I use feather preservative on my trees to ensure long lasting beauty and there is sometimes a sweet sent to the tree as a result. This scent will fade once the tree is left to air out. Some shedding of feathers may occur with these trees. This is a natural occurrence and can happen when trees are setting into their new environments. Once the tree package leaves my possession, I cannot be responsible for broken damaged items by the mail carrier.

No refunds or exchanges.

With regard to my Rum Truffles: PLEASE make sure your truffles are shipped to somewhere a person can PHYSICALLY receive them, such as a workplace. Once the package leaves we cannot be responsible for broken damaged items. PLEASE BE ADVISED that coconut, walnuts, pistachios, pecans and almonds [NUTS] are used in my products and in my kitchen. People with known food allergies should NOT consume these truffles. These truffles contain alcohol [SUGAR CANE RUM] and are only for 21+ ADULTS ONLY. By purchasing this listing you agree that you are at least 21 years of age and that you will only serve these truffles to adults of a legal drinking age.

No refunds or exchanges.

With regard to my hats, fascinators and custom designed bachelorette projects: It is too expensive for me to create a "mock-up" so I do not do them. I am happy to show you flower samples in pictures and speak in depth about your expectations. Please remember, this is art and not a mass-production outfit. I do not take pictures of works "in-progress" - I am happy to send you pictures (if time permits), when I ship your item but not before.

By purchasing my works, you agree that what I am creating for you is considered "Art" (collaborative but subjective in execution, form and content) and all decisions in rendering and execution are dependent upon my inspiration.
