A New Collection of Exquisite Veils & Hair Accessories from Gilded Shadows
Good morning, I hope you’re having a fabulous weekend! I am just stopping by today to share with you an exquisite new collection of bridal hair accessories from one of Chic Vintage Brides much loved sponsors Gilded Shadows. You may remember seeing some of their beautiful pieces in my recent roundup of perfect Art Deco bridal hair accessories, or if you have been a follower of CVB for any length of time you will undoubtedly have caught glimpses of previous collections as well as some of their glamorous styles on Pinterest. Well, today I’m here to share my favourites from their incredible new collection…..
I first discovered the divine bridal headpieces of designer Kristen James, the talented lady behind all of Gilded Shadows creations, some 2 and a bit years ago now. With a truly unique design style that features peacock feather plumes, crystal embellished lace and intricate details, her bridal accessories hint at the elegance and glamour of days gone by but with a distinctly modern edge that brides today love (she is fast approaching 10,000 sales on Etsy!) And getting to know her over the last couple of years she has become quite the favourite of mine and yours – who doesn’t love a company who donates a minimum of 5% of all profits to local animal rescue groups??
Gilded Shadows offers a veritable Aladdin’s cave of bridal accessories and adornments! Kristen’s Etsy store and new website brim with every type of hair accessory you could ever imagine – exquisitely embellished hair vines and headbands, juliet cap and birdcage veils, as well as crowns, combs, pins and hats. And with such a wide offering and unique design style (that has a distinctly modern vintage aesthetic) her collections have always and invariably captivated and beguiled. But with more delicate lace and an even greater focus on intricate beading and detailed embellishments, as well as a glimmer of Art Nouveau and Art Deco (that means the pieces look as though they could have come straight from the set of Downton Abbey!) I do believe this her latest collection could be the greatest yet! Luxurious and beautifully handcrafted in Kristen’s little studio in Austin Texas, each and every one would not only make the perfect finishing touch for any modern bride with a vintage soul, but also a gorgeous keepsake for years to come – so be sure to have your pinning finger ready before scrolling any further!
I seriously love this collection, don’t you? There’s a hair accessory for every discerning bride and lover of Art Deco elegance!
Thank-you Kristen for allowing me to share it! If you’re new to Chic Vintage Brides or are seeing Gilded Shadows pieces for the first time, then you can catch up on past collections, some of which are still available to buy, here and here! And don’t forget these are just a few of my favourite pieces. You can see the rest of this collection, as well as the rest of Kristen’s offering which encapsulates shoeclips, belts and jewelry – each designed to bestow a touch of something luxurious to your day, on her lovely new website at gildedshadows.com as well as in the Gilded Shadows Etsy shop. And don’t forget to follow Kristen on Facebook and Instagram to keep up to date on latest collections, new additions, sales and special offers.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
