Mini Feather Dress – Maybe A Bit Too Short?

Cara Delevingne is one of the leading stars in the new movie Pan. She attended a world premiere of the movie one Sunday afternoon and gave the press a little more to talk about then she expected with her very little dress.


Cara showed up to the event wearing this stunning feather dress. But when she leaned over the railing to say hello to fans that had been waiting hours just to meet her she let one camera get a picture of well perhaps a bit more than her great legs.


Her short feather dress rode up her back side showing a bit of her derriere (as the British called it - as an American I would just call it an ass)


Well do you think this might have been on purpose? Who knows. 

Busting Out The Feather Fashion For That New Years Eve Party

If you find yourself to be one of those people that just can’t wear feathers on a regular day then New Years is your time to spread your wings and fly.

Wearing feathers are quite a bit of a fashion statement and might not go so well at the office (of course that depends where you work). But no matter what New Years Eve is a great time to wear feathers, no questions asked.

So now the big question is what feathers are you going to go for?

Now you could just go real simple and head out with a pair of these satin feather sandals by Jim Choo Teazer.


But if you are already going feathers why not at least go for these sequin dresses.



 But if you ask me there is no reason not to go full feather glamour with one of these extra beautiful feather decked dresses.




No matter what you choose just make sure to have a great new years.

Mystic Magic's White Christmas - Feather Angel Wings

Mystic Magic – I believe this is a British company that from what I understand is for the most part a mask making company.
Now they have both a very interesting blog and web site. But I was not able to get a clear picture exactly who is the main designer there.
Now is it Ashley Pearce? No I don’t believe so, but then why would the articles being shown on the website be talking about her?
Really I haven’t yet figured out what the deal is with this company but THEY ARE AWESOME.
They have some incredible works of art out there and from what I read whoever it is that is running thing over there is completely self taught. Now that makes him or her even more amazing.
Please if you are reading this and could shed some light on the situation please leave a comment below.
This angle that they created for this year’s holiday season is truly something out of this world.  
I have written some posts on how to make feather angle wings but this is the true work of an artist.



Absolutely spectacular, thank you.

Feather Up Your Christmas Decorations This Year

So before your guests even get through the door they will be met by a stunning feather wreath that you created to be in perfect flow with you color scheme.

Depending on how your house is laid out they will see either the dining room table or the Christmas tree.

Let’s save the best for last and start with the dining room table.

Because you love to overdo things there are three feather centerpieces on the table.

In the center is a feather tree and at each end is a few well chosen feathers in matching vases.

Of course once again in perfect harmony with the rest of the colors that you are using.

And for the grand finale the tree is covered in feather boas and decked out with a half a dozen glass globe ornaments filled with feathers.

Now are you motivated?


Take a look at our older post on how to get it done.

Celebrity Halloween Costumes 2015

Every year I have put up a post after Halloween about what some of the celebs have worn for Halloween costumes this year, but this year I decided to do one before to give our readers some food for thought before Halloween.

And I am sure that I will still do another one after to let you all know what happened this year.

Here is a picture of Paris Hilton in 2010 dressed as a native American at a Playboy party. Just note that this costume was deemed controversial.


Look at this super cute costume that Lucy Hale wore, she I dressed as the TWITTER bird.


It seems that supremodel Heidi Klum is a big fan of Halloween. She hosts parties every year.
Just take a look at this awesome feather costume she has on.
Damn she is HOT!


And last up I found this angel on the internet but I can’t find out who she is, can anyone tell me?



Happy Halloween to all of our readers.

Feather Cape Halloween Costumes

So just a week before Halloween, do you know what you’re wearing yet?


So after we have just written two posts about feather capes, now let’s just take at how they can be used in a Halloween costume.

First up is this guy wearing a feather and a black crow hat. It said that it could be found on grandinroad.com but I was not able to find it.


Here are another three great feather caped costume ideas found on the internet.




You can make the capes out of feather Fringes as explained in our last post.

I would suggest buying our 8-10 inch black iridescent CoqueFringe.

Also take a look at our feather masks to find one that is right for you.


Call today to find out if we can ship you’re so that you can get it in time for Halloween.

How To Make A Feather Cape

So after my last post on those awesome feather capes I decided to do a post that I have not done n a long time.

A nice easy “How To Do” post for our D.I.Y readers.


 Found this simple tutorial on chic-steals.com and thought it was great.

What you will need for this project
1.       white feather fringe
2.       baby single face satin ribbon in cream
3.       scissors
4.       fabric glue
5.       hot-glue gun
6.       lighter
The idea is very simple.
Cut a piece of the feather fringe to the size you want for your cape.
Attach two pieces, about a foot long, of the satin ribbon to each side of the fringe using glue and I would make a small knot. Heat seal with the lighter the raw edges of two small pieces of ribbon, about one inch long, and use these to cover the raw edges of the feather fringe where it connects with the ribbon. Now cut the edges of the larger ribbons that are connected to the feathers on an angle. Use the lighter to heat seal the ends of the ribbon and you are done.


What do you think?

Feather Capes

These really cool feather pieces seem to be one of the new big things in the feather fashion world.

But they are not new to the world.

There is a story about Captain James Cook receiving a bunch of feather cloaks in Hawaii back in 1778.
Here is a picture of one of them.
Those Hawaiians’ were just always super cool.


But today you can find the biggest names in fashion putting out some of these beautiful feather capes.

Take a look at this one from Ralph Lauran.


Balmain feather cape from their fall 2007 collection.


And for the last of the big names we are going to bring up here, this feather cape from Valentino.


This feather cape is available from forever21 for just $39.00


To leave you all off with some food for thought.

If you were thinks that you could never pull off such a piece just take a look at how good it can go with jean shorts and a white T shirt.

Fall Feather Fashion 2015

Be prepared for a fall fashion that is going to ruffle your feathers.

That is what they are saying in this article on the VOGUE website.


In addition to Gucci embroidering, Givenchy printing and Rochas appliquéing birds on their garments we are going to see a whole handful of other designers decking out their clothing with feathers.

Here is a piece by Michael Kors that is very nice. He spiced up a somewhat ordinary navy and white dress with ostrich feathers. 


This piece is also navy and white, but nothing normal with an added touch of white feather trim. It was designed by Lanvin.


Top Shop Unique presented these stunning black feather sleeves.


This piece is just the thing for space age punk rockers who love feathers. Designed by Proenza Schouler.


This all feather dress created by Marchesa is so elegant that I am betting we will see it at the Oscars or a like event being worn by one of the big stars.


Last we have this feather bouquet neck piece created by Dries Van Noten.

Haute Couture

Haute Couture is French for “high dressmaking, high sewing or high fashion” and that is exactly what it is.

Haute translates literally to "high".
Couture translates literally from French as "dressmaking", but may also refer to fashion, sewing, or needlework.

This is fashion and style for the highest class.
Haute couture is personal design made by hand from top to finish, using the best quality, expensive and very often rare materials.
The French term haute couture is protected by law and only a small number of members can legally label themselves as Haute Couture.

In addition to a long list of rules and regulations that these “houses of high fashion” must abide by to keep their status they must also present no less than fifty completely original designs to the public twice a year, in January and July, both day and evening pieces.

Haute couture is high society fashion which brings the dreams of man and woman into a reality on the catwalk, the red carpet and even on the sidewalk of New York City.
