The last of the Thanksgiving turkey has been eaten. The Christmas stockings have been hung. And now, it’s time to party! I absolutely love holiday festivities. We host an annual holiday bash for upwards of 30 family members and friends, hold a yearly office fete, and of course, attend many gatherings – both large and small. Ideally, all of those holiday parties involve sparkly, spangly, new clothes. But, if you’re on a budget this year, an easy and very affordable way to update last year’s dress is to add a fascinator!
Long a staple of the fashionable European gal’s wardrobe, fascinators have made the leap across “the pond” and now can be found at better department stores and boutiques – from Seattle to Atlanta.
At the forefront of this trend is one of my favorite companies: Dorfman Pacific. Dorfman Pacific offers the most comprehensive collection of hat brands in the country! In fact, the company’s design departments are always busy scouting the world for the best trends and materials. And, lucky for us, Dorfman Pacific always strives for the best quality while keeping their products affordable.
My favorite piece from Dorfman Pacific’s 2012 Holiday Collection is the Kate Middleton-worthy Scala Fascinator by Dorfman Pacific, pictured. This fascinator blends delicacy with dramatic effect to perfection and in several different color choices, including Black, Pebble, Pink or White. Pair it any holiday dress for instant sophistication and chic style!
Attached by a comfortable headband, the fascinator is crafted from sinamay and feathers is easy to put on (and keep on!). Best of all, this fascinator is flattering on all face shapes and has just the right detailing and trim for accessorizing most outfits. The headband secures it, so that it stays in place through dancing, cocktailing and… the like. Retail $30
