>When I first saw topsyturvydesign, or Kim Brown-Dye’s designer Millinery, on Etsy I had a genuine ‘gasp’ moment. Take one look inside her store and you will know why.
Her versatility and creativity is stunning with pillbox hats, feather and veil facinators, and gorgeous headpieces guaranteed to turn heads.
Feather and Veil – Bridal Fascinator – Headpiece – The Molly is a creative alternative to a traditional style veil.
Wow is all I can say about this amazing Pleated Victorian Bridal Hat – The Byrone
It is the perfect combination of something old and something new. This would go well with a Victorian Themed Wedding. It is a fashion statement in itself yet it won’t overwhelm the rest of your look.
What an amazing creation -Victorian Bridal Top Hat with Bird –The Dorcas
This is the be all, end all, of designer hats – the perfect topper for your wedding ensemble.
Instead of a traditional veil why not try a topsyturvydesign millinery creation instead?
If you’re looking for that perfect accessory to complete your Wedding look, now’s the time to visit topsyturvydesign!

>The first time I saw 10eisha’s creations I was struck by their elegant style, and unique use of color. Then something else crept into my head. A whispering of effortless chic, and sort of urban bohemianism. I found my mind wondering around antebellum mansions, skipping in New Orleans cemeteries, quietly reading in a San Francisco coffee house, and window-shopping through New York’s East Village. All these images rolled though my brain unable to pinpoint and exact description of the hair accessories she makes. Not one of them gave me a clear description, but joined they evoked a little of the spirit of her creations. She entitles her shop “Hair Accessories for the Brave.” I would say that is a perfect description for she is a fearless designer.
>I cannot say much about Kat Swank’s Liaison shop that could even come close to doing her work justice. She is an offbeat designer of the highest couture level.
Beautiful, stunning, artistic and phenomenal are just a few of the words that come to mind when looking through her shop.
If i could do it all over again I might base my entire bridal outfit on one of her head pieces…
- 2/3 cup confectioners’ sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting hands
- 1 cup pecans, chopped into very small pieces
- 1 cup semi sweet chocolate morsels
- 24 Snyder’s pretzel snaps
- -Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F. Line cookies sheets with parchment paper.
>When I was in my early and mid twenties I thought I would never get married. Never have kids. Then I met Chris. He was the male version of me. He was all the good things about all the men I had ever loved and none of the bad. He was everything I had no idea I wanted. He made me want to get married, made me want to have kids.
A few years later we had an offbeat wedding; a non-white dress, Vegas, tattoos, mustaches, no sit down dinner, no cake, no first dances, no bridesmaids, no introductions. Just an killer open bar, 80 of our closest friends and family and a party that lasted until the sun came up.
Every time we look through our pictures of the wedding week we talk about how we wish we could get married all over again… From the planning to the day of experience – the whole thing. And I think that, right there, is the secret to wedding planning. Do it exactly how you want to do it. Do it so good that you want to do it again. Don’t get caught up in little things – in fact if that little thing has been bugging the two of you – get rid of it! Even if its something you THOUGHT was important to you.
If you are not having fun during your planning – rethink everything! Now I am not saying that a few late nights of annoying DIY projects are not worth it. They may be. There will be stress. But it should be the kind of stress that brings you together – not drives you apart.
