There's a certain charm to this mixed-media peacock print that makes it impossible
not to like. I think it's called "whimsy." Or maybe "just plain radness."
Get it? The title of today's post is "Getting Cocky" and it's about peacock hats, you see? Because the word "cocky" is a play on of the word "peacock" and that's...not actually as clever as it sounded in my head. But whatever--I've already committed to this topic for today, so I'm not going to let one measly little poorly-thought-out pun stop me.
So without further ado, let's get right to the good stuff, shall we?
First up is this combination embroidered/embellished fascinator, which I like both for the sparkly bits here and there as well as the overall design, which apparently involves a coy pose on the peacock's part. Because if any creature could be imbued with the human action of flirtatiousness, the peacock's a pretty good candidate.
Something I learned over the course of working on this post is that peacock feathers feature an awful lot in art-deco-type accessories. Consider the above cocktail hat just a sampling of the sheer variety you can find with the right search.
Is it just me, or goes this feathery fascinator resemble a really big snowflake? The description says it's supposed to be a really big flower, but all I see is a singular example of one those seasonal hollow hexagonal prisms we all know and love/loathe.
Well, whichever shape you see, the fascinator is still really pretty and deserves a place in somebody's wardrobe.
And just in case you were thinking that peacock-themed stuff means everything always has to be in emerald tones, allow this boldly appliqued fascinator to change your mind in the most awesome way possible.
And just because I mentioned art deco somewhere earlier on in this post, here's a flapperesque peacock fascinator:
As to whether you pair this with a pair of rolled stockings and a flask of gin is entirely a matter of taste, both sartorially and alcoholically.
See you Friday!
