Happy Friday



Happy Friday boys and girls!
That is meant to be pink champagne I'm sipping, not urine I can assure you. Although I've heard it's meant to be good for you....can anyone confirm? Seems ghastly to me.

Anyhow, it's lovely here at the moment, perfect weather for some champagne and to get me in the mood I thought this little fascinator might help.
I was inspired by a fellow blogger Porcelaine Blonde who asked me to make her one to wear at cocktail hour. What a gal, nice to know there are people out there to take tea and cocktails as they should be.
Anyhow, hers is going to be a lot less fussy, more Sicilian mobster wife in mourning (what a perfect description!).
I suppose it's time I came clean and let you in on a little something:
I have my own accessories label, in particular millinery and fascinators. Yep, Lady M works for her jewels by creating them for others!
I have never talked about the label which is under a different name because I wanted to keep the blog separate to my job. I've been asked quite a few times lately what I actually do all day apart from shop and lounge on the couch so there you have it.
Those with an eagle eye might have worked it out by now, most of the jewellery, gloves etc I wear I've made and I say so in the outfit notes.

Now I've got that off my chest there is champagne to drink!

You are certainly one talented lady! The fascinator is super stunning as are all your other creations.

I hope you have a lovely weekend!

What a pretty little fascinator that is! I hope the business keeps you in champagne and the other necessities!

Imelda Matt said...

She sews and has the best head of hair in the country...is there nothing LM can't do?

katiecrackernuts said...

I had spied that you made your own jewels and did wonder if that's what kept the wolves from your door. Yah for you.

“A cause may be inconvenient, but it's magnificent. It's like champagne or high heels, and one must be prepared to suffer for it.”
You are FAB ! xx

Grant said...

Imelda's description is so bloody apt. Your hair is amazing!

I am planning my own little campagne event in the near future: I'm going to down a bottle of Krug the afternoon I hand in my Dissertation. I wonder if I should invest in a fascinator for the occasion?

MISS GLITZY said...

What a pretty fascinator, just love it. And feel like drinking champagne as well. I received an award "I love your blog" and pass it to you. It's in my last post. Cheers Lady!

Kira Fashion said...

so chic!

a kiss!!!

enc said...

I think a fascinator MUST be accompanied by champers.

I admire anyone willing and brave enough to wear a fascinator. You do it with aplomb.

Francis Girard said...

geri said...

a cat of impossible colour said...

What gorgeous accessories you make - they're stunning. With great power comes great responsibility! :) Responsibility to be fabulous, that is.

I have no words for how lovely that fascinator is.

How fantastic has Melbourne weather been?! I spent my Friday doing pretty much the same thing.
Sipping ciders, eating sushi and baking cupcakes in my friend's apartment on the esplanade in St Kilda overlooking the beach, basking in the warm sunshine.
I was definitely sun shine dress weather!
Big fan of your blog.

PorcelainBlonde said...

I think the only thing more delightful than admiring LM's style, would be to buy a little bit of it for oneself!
