A beautiful Bespoke Headpiece By Caroline!

Below are some shots of Louise on  her wedding day, wearing one of Caroline's bespoke combs and birdcage veil. Doesn't she look beautiful? We keep saying it, but we love, love, love to see pictures from our Dirty Fabulous bride's Big Days! 
Caroline is busy-busy making up lots of sparkly, feathery and oh-so-glamorous combs, veils and headpieces. If there's something in particular your heart desires, she'll rustle that up too!

Please continue to send us your photos, we adore seeing them!

Bird cage veils and headpiece orders before August!

Our very own Caroline will be getting hitched in August and then is off for a nice long honeymoon to explore Europe. This means we won't be able to create any birdcage veils or headpieces during the month of August as Caroline is our 'Mad Hatter'!
We will have a huge amount of headpieces available to buy in store during this time and we can of course take orders for mid September events.
If you need a bird cage veil or headpiece for August make sure you come in to us within the next few weeks.
 Below is a taster of some of our creations currently in stock. Prices range between €120 to €180
You can also have a peak at some of our previous customers bespoke headpieces here:

Some of my favourite Dirty Fabulous pieces...

1940s black sequin bolero jacket and skirt €390. I am mad about this suit, it's so unusual and I definitely think you could wear the pieces separately.

This 1950s blue floral headband €120, is super cute for a wedding or day at the races. 

1950s pink satin bell dress with rhinestone droplets €310...This has 'PARTY' written all over it!   

 To me these signed Kramer 1950's rhinestone earrings €130, look so funky and modern. I could definitely see Lady Ga Ga wearing them! 

I want this leather 1950s ivory envelope bag €95... It really should be mine!

I am a huge fan of big cocktail, statement rings and I love the colour tone of these 1960s babies! €75 on top  €95 on bottom.

Who wouldn't dream about these delicate ivory leather wrist gloves with gold and rhinestone beading? €45

Being busy with baby I don't get to see our Dirty Fabulous treasures as often as Caroline and Breffni, so I'm often seen ooohing and ahhhing in between appointments at all the goodies that we have in stock!
These are just a couple of the things I adore. Obviously I am crazy about vintage so given the time I could have added up a million photos!
But, instead of just myself being snap-happy, Caroline and Breffni will be adding some of their Dirty Fabulous favourites next week. We each have very different tastes so stay tuned....
