I don’t know about you but I love fascinators! If you’re wondering just what a fascinator is . . . it’s basically a fancy headpiece or hat. Some fascinators even come with a hairband attached so you just wear it like you would a regular hairband. I find they add a touch of elegance and can dress up any outfit. Many people are apprehensive about wearing a fascinator as they think it’s either too ostentatious or old fashioned or they simply don’t have an occasion to wear it to. I think they’re great and can be worn to a high tea, summer party or even a wedding.
I recently teamed up with Unique Accessories to feature a few of their fabulous Fall fascinators. I’ve always loved this store because it reminded me of playing dress up as a child. I often go in an try on some of their hats or jewelry. The staff are always friendly and welcoming so it’s easy to get carried away and lose track of time. Unique Accessories is located in the Carlingwood Shopping Centre on Carling Avenue.
I especially liked this red and black fascinator because of its simplistic clean lines. I paired it with this red and black printed dress from Suzy Shier. I thought this would be a perfect outfit for remembrance day as the black flowers on the dress look a little like poppies. The fascinator just adds a great finishing touch to this whole outfit. To pull the whole outfit together I added a bag from Michael Kors which I picked up last boxing day 🙂 Would you ever consider wearing a fascinator?
