My Candy Gift Guide: Sweets!

I've been wanting and yearning to make some sweets for the holiday, but I'm still waiting on my candy thermometer! Maybe Santa will bring me one? I have  been extra good this year.The thermometer is a must-have for any candy enthusiast.  If you really want to give fabulous home-made candy as gifts this year (but don't want to get your hands sticky), I HIGHLY recommend  these sweet treats I've spent hours compiling--well, maybe not hours. But a long time!
Courtesy of Etsy and all her gifted candy makers, I give you...

I've been working on some new couture and I wanted to share it with all of you.

This first photo is one my head pieces that I created for a wedding, made of french netting, feather biots and ribbon. Colors: black and nude

The following pieces are brand new--haven't even been listed!

Feather hackles accented with hand made sequins appliques from the Philippines and Israel  and a couple accented with bows.

The following piece is just the sequins applique mounted on 100% recycled black felt!

I would love to hear your feedback on these, I just LOVE them! They would be perfect for a formal event or even for a bride. Don't ya think? And p.s., feathers are IN for Fall!

Old Hollywood

Gorgeous, isn't she? Such actresses as Jean Harlow, Betty Grable, Audrey Hepburn and Jane Russell have been my inspiration this month for my most recent Couture Headpieces.

A vintage blend of French Netting, hand-stripped feathers, beading and maybe a flower come together in a throw-back to Old Hollywood Glamour.

I've created these pieces to be worn by Couture lovers everywhere. To the Opera, the Derby, a wedding, any formal gathering is the perfect oppurtunity to show off your Old Hollywood Glamour.

You musn't be a shy gal to sport one these eye-catchers--you'll definately get all the attention!

Inspiration for my Bows, you ask? None other than Clara Bow, of course! Who could refuse those big bright eyes and teensy tiny lips--cute as a button!

I wonder what next month will bring? Who or what will inspire me then? Maybe I should just dedicate the entire month to Marylin Monroe. Who's with me?!

(all Headpieces and Bows are available to purchase online at Bellababy Studio)
