Don’t Buy Fake Peacock Feathers - When you can get them at good price

The feathers you see in craft stores definitely ARE real, and the birds DO molt them, which is painless and happens all the time. 
 
Here at FeatherStore.com we strive to bring you quality, real peacock feathers. 
 
Arrangements and designed items incorporate REAL peacock feathers rather than fake peacock feathers that some providers try to pass off as peacock feathers.
 
Peacocks Feathers Are only Gathered When They Molt

They lose their feathers naturally throughout the year.  Mostly completed in summer, the bird may lose as much as half of it’s total feathers to keep cool.

Consider Local Suppliers

While the peacock is native to southeast Asia, it’s worth considering purchasing feathers from US-based suppliers.  Not only is shipping quicker (and usually included!) but it provides a better level of accountability on the part of the business.  Property rights, business accountability, and faster delivery make purchasing from the US a better bargain when obtaining bulk peacock feathers.

Turkey Feather Fashion From The 1940s



I would think that there would be a lot more turkey feather dresses out there than there are.

But it seems that is something that was once big in the fashion world but is not anymore.

Check out these pictures of vintage turkey feather fashion from the 1940s.

I wonder why you don't see things like this anymore. Obviously I don't mean like this exactly, but like this just with a much more modern twist.

It's especially interesting because vintage is so in style these days.

Also I would figure that turkey feathers would just be great because there should be an abundance of them.

Especially around Thanksgiving time.

Hey, who knows, maybe it's just a matter of time before we start to see these back on the catwalks.

Am always talking about the way that fashions and trends always go in a spiral.

Treat Or Trick For Thanksgiving! ?


This post was supposed to go out two weeks ago but totally got lost in the system. 

As you can tell we have done some renovations here.

But because it was anyways a Thanksgiving post to begin with, I figured why not. 

Do you like scary movies? 

So Halloween is so close that I can't imagine you don't have everything ready by now.

But, just in case you don't here's a link to a post from a previous year with links to all of our Halloween posts. If you still don't know what to dress up as perhaps you can get an idea from there.

The truth is I was just going to skip Halloween this year and go straight to thanksgiving, but something caught my eye and gave me a flash of inspiration.

I was looking for some good turkey feather pictures when I saw this.

Her being dressed up as a pilgrim reminded me of an old scary movie that might be just prefect for Halloween night. I bet a bunch of you will remember this one.

The Bride Of Boogedy what's awesome is you can just watch the whole thing on YouTube.

Here is the link

What made me think about it was because he was a pilgrim.

Happy Halloween everyone.

Florence Kosky In Feathers


Florence Kosky seems to have had the ideal childhood.

Growing up in Dorset England might just be the dream come true for most kids.

I can't complain, I grew up in Miami.

But just look at this picture, Miami doesn't have anything that looks like that.

Also Dorset is filled with farm land and forests. It's got these stunning old castles, and is all rural, no big noisy cities.

Right, now let us get back to Florence and this magical feather dress she is wearing.

This is from a photo shoot she did last year for Harper’s Bazaar UK.

https://www.fashiongonerogue.com/florence-kosky-bazaar-uk-editorial/

What is great about this shoot is that it’s totally in vibe with Florence.

She grew up around farms and wood lands, and that's the theme.

The thing I loved about her story was how she got into modeling.

Some guy followed her around at a festival until she agreed to come to the modeling studio.

I bet she just thought he wanted a date.

J.W Anderson 2017 Winter Feather Fashion

To tell the truth I am a bit confused if these styles are from this winter or last winter, but hey what difference does it really make?

It's all mostly fashion eye candy and inspiration fodder anyway.

“inspiration fodder”

I just came up with that and I really like it.

This first article that I read about this line up was from last year, but I found all the designs mentioned on the Vogue website for this year. So you can come to your own conclusion.

Here are the two links so that you can have a look for yourself.

http://m.en.vogue.fr/fashion-shows/defile/pret-a-porter-femme-automne-hiver-2017-2018-londres-j-w-anderson/20686#defile-35

From what I understand he pumped this line out right after a full line of men's wear.

The thing that I like best about it is that it seems very glamorous but yet practical. Like stuff that normal people might wear out.

Of course they would be very rich normal people, but you know what I mean.

These three outfits are not crazy full of feathers but they have a lot more than just a feather fringe also.



The leather jacket it a very nice wintery touch, and it comes in two colors.

But I have one question that is really killing me and it has to do with this leather jacket.

Just because you are wearing a leather jacket, does not mean you are dressed for the winter.

So what is up with the above outfit?

Miu Miu – Fall Feather Fashion – Feather Skirt

So this is a really beautiful piece.

In my humble opinion the price tag is a bit high, just a bit over two thousand dollars. Here are two pictures of the skirt.

But the thing that really interests me about this skirt is the company that makes it.

Miu Miu was created by Miuccia Parada.

And is a fully owned subsidiary of the Parada group.

Now I know that I even mentioned in my last part that I have written about the Parada group before.

http://thefeatherstore.blogspot.co.il/2017/01/parada-group.html?m=1

But after I see them all over the place it causes me to start thinking. 

Maybe that are part of one of those secret old society's like the free mason’s or something.

Don't we all just love a little conspiracy theory.

Fall Feather fashion - 2017

Get ready to see lots of feathers in this year's fall/winter fashion lines.



Just from the first two things that I saw it seems that the feather trend is going to be bigger than usual this year.



I am just going to start off with what was written in vogue and after that I am going to show you a super easy DIY project that can make a great Christmas gift.



Yeah that's right, you need to start thinking about those already.



http://www.vogue.co.uk/gallery/autumn-winter-2017-feathers-trend-guide



So this article by vogue is a great, super short history, of our modern day feather fashion.



And then at the end they give you a nice little intro to this year's feather fashion trends.



I just picked this picture to share with you because I thought it was really interesting.



It's a style by Prada which I have written about in the past.



The second thing that I read was this post on refinery29.com.



http://www.refinery29.com/2017/09/172869/feather-fashion-trend



They have a great collection of awesome feather fashion for this year's fall and winter.



But the one that I wanted to talk about is this feather trim hoodie from Opening Ceremony.



But the problem is it not available anymore.



The good news. .. It's super easy to make your self.



All you need to do is get some of our feather trim and sow it into the inside bottom part of your favorite hoodie, and bam there you go.



And like I said, it can make a great Christmas gift.



Bye for now.
