The New Alice Pleasance

You may have noticed my Etsy store has been on vacation mode since the beginning of August.

I thought for a while and felt I need to make some changes and most of all I wanted to add something new to my collection.

My long time readers may know I have a real passion for hats and hair accessories, expecially vintage (of course!) or with a retro feeling, so I worked in that direction and after sketching, designing and trying for a while I'm glad to introduce you the new Alice Pleasance's Fascinator Hats.




Made of natural straw, they measure 14 cm around and are available in a variety of colors. The decorations feature velvet leaves, ribbons, feathers and all sorts of fabric and paper flowers and fruits.
I didn't use any plastic flowers at all, cause I want to recreate the look of real vintage hair accessories from our lovely bygone eras.



The only plastic part is the comb sewn on the back of the fascinator. I chose plastic instead of metal, so you can be sure it's actually nickel free!


Apart from the new hats, the miniature cake rings are still available and there is also a new line of earrings and hairpins featuring lucite and plastic flower cabs.






As my brand is called Alice Pleasance I decided to transform my store in a sort of personal Wonderland, naming each section after a chapter of Lewis Carroll's books...

Hope you will join me soon for a crazy Unbirthday party :-)

Wow Alice! Wow! Wow! These things are all amazing. I love them! You are so talented.

I can't believe after all my feelings of being uninspired by British fashion mags all these other ones have now popped up. But it's the ones that have only a few issues a year that are the best.
