Felted Wool and Vintage Lace Fascinator

From Winipedia: A fascinator is a headpiece, a style of millinery. The word originally referred to a fine, lacy head covering akin to a shawl and made from wool or lace. The term had fallen almost into disuse by the 1970s.[1]
In the early 21st century, the term has made a comeback, but the meaning has slightly changed; it is now used to describe a delicate, slightly-to-very frivolous head decoration worn almost exclusively by women. A fascinator may be worn instead of a hat to occasions where hats were traditionally worn -- such as weddings -- or as an evening accessory, when it may be called a cocktail hat. It is generally worn with fairly formal attire.
Modern fascinators are commonly made with feathers, flowers and/or beads. They attach to the hair by a comb, headband or clip. They are particularly popular at premium horse-racing events, such as the Grand National and the Melbourne Cup. Brides may choose to wear them as an alternative to a bridal veil or hat, particularly if their gowns are non-traditional.

However, remember....."Normal is NOT an Option"  The Wildwoman Original Felted Wool and Vintage Lace Fascinator can be worn anytime you want with gowns or jeans.  Rules do not apply in Wildwomanland.
One size fits all.........$45.00  includes shipping
