Having had long hair for allof my adult life (apart from the two years at university where I inadvisedly cropped it), I’m always drawn in the manner of a greedy magpie to shiny, pretty things to wear on my head. At the moment I am rather fond of the be-feathered, be-netted and be-buttoned creations from Headmistress, a tiny independent label, set up by Jillian Wood, a Canadian in London, who has since returned to Toronto.

She uses all manner of feathers, vintage bits & pieces, lovely fabrics, including Liberty prints, and netting to create fascinators, hair bands & clips and teeny tiny cocktail hats to perch on the side of your head in the manner of a 1950s filmstar.

I adore these feathered headbands. I bought a great one at J Crew late this summer but haven't found any like that one that I love until now.

Oh how I love fascinators! Do you think they are socially acceptable to wear in NY though? In general or strictly for fancy events?

I think long straight hair looks really nice, and these accessories complement it beautifully.

I love feather fascinators, slides, clips etc.

I wore a cream and gold feathers in my hair on my wedding day.

These are beautiful.
