Ruffles, Chiffon & More: Inspired by Marie Antoinette

handmade bridesmaid hair flowers


We love Sunshine & Carousels, one of the cutest handmade accessory shops on Etsy. So, when we found out about the new Spring 2011 collection, we couldn’t wait to see it! The new collection entitled ‘Modern Marie’ was inspired by the costumes in Sofia Coppola’s movie “Marie Antoinette” and features girly details, pops of color, sequins, bows, and antique brass. We especially love the floral headbands for bridesmaids and halo headbands with chiffon flowers and sequins. Plus, we have had the pleasure of speaking with Erin, the shop owner, and she is a total sweetheart! (Working with someone who is sweet is always way more fun.) So, grab a coffee and get ready to kick off your morning with these lovely hand-picked items…

The rose beads on that necklace are cute and vintage. I usually don’t like items like that, but in this case it works!
