This Beautiful Boutique feature has me VERY excited, Pearls & Swine's amazing headwear is simply some of the coolest, funnest stuff I've ever seen!
Pearls & Swine are a unique, avant garde, funtastic 'design emporium' run by West Yorkshire based milliner Bink - the owner, creator, designer, packager, blogger and tea maker - in her own words she is
'I am everything "Pearls & Swine" that you see and
everything you don't!'
Pearls & Swine specialises in unique, haute couture millinery: hats, half masks, fascinators and avant-garde hair accessories for people who really want to get noticed.
Look at this thing!! How could you not be happy wearing it??
Bink herself describes it as
'holiday scene on a fascinator, includes a pink feathered flamingo, blue glitter sea and a coconut tree. This fascinator is back with leopard print satin and attaches to your hair with a comb.'... so it has secret leopard print! As do many of her pieces! How amazing! (I also have a leopard print obsession...)
And from there I found Pearls & Swine.
