Meringue Heads Up

Meringue Heads Up

>>So apparently the push buttons on the Roksanda Ilincic for Whistles dresses are reminding people of anything from security tags to macaroons and if it is the case that edible-looking creations are what some of you crave because there is a bit of a blurring somewhere between the patisserie and the clothes boutique, then these hats by Ashley Cheeks of It's Ok My Dear (Etsy link and her website) might be the ticket. 

In actual fact, only the pink one is actually reminiscent of a blush pink meringue and Cheeks actually calls it a soufle headpiece, but I'm more of a meringue person than a soufle (all that RISing expectations for not a lot in taste IMO…).  It's the softness of the bow shapes and perhaps the slightly faded colours of the images that are making me think that if you were going to wear one of these headpieces, that a pile of cupcakes, meringues, macaroons etc in front of you wouldn't go amiss…

So I'll take that as a nodding and affirmative yes?

    These are so much fun! Very Blair Waldorf on GG!!! Nothing better than conversational hair pieces.

    I prefer the black one, agree with GG, but also parallel with Luis Vuitton.

    I love the black poufs! The pinky one is like an old French cloche cap.

    Ashley has such an interesting face….beautiful. She almost distracts the attention from her own product! The head pieces are great, but I’m more interested in her :S
