Mellesan Feather Headpiece Giveaway!



Mellesan is one of those labels that I've been silently stalking for what seems like my entire blogging/online life. I'm not sure how or when we found each other on Facebook, but I do know I've been a big fan of her work ever since.

When I received the latest lookbook from San, I was completely floored by all the creative headpieces and glorious desert photos from the 'Croisades and Shamanism' collection. Their designs are inventive and unique and the types of accessories I only dream of owning. I can't tell you how long I've been searching for a Grecian-inspired head chain like the one from their previous collection or one similar to the 'Nuptial Headpiece' at the top of the post. I think it's the historical inspiration that makes me love it most! The 'Graal Hairclip' is another piece I'm just totally in awe of – why we don't see more of those, I'm not sure! I don't know why I'm only raving on their accessories though. I'm equally in love with all their dresses and bodysuits too.

These are just a few of the pieces from the 'Croisades and Shamanism' collection. There's a ton more at the Mellesan site under the 'collections' tab (on the right of the page).  While you're there, you should also check out the 'Littleby Mellesan' tab too. They have to be the best children models I've ever seen! They execute the characters to near perfection.

Up for grabs for one of you lucky readers is this feather headpiece from Mellesan's previous collection. I know I say this all the time, but I'm really, really sad I can't enter to win this one! To enter all you have to do is visit the 'Croisades and Shamanism' collection and tell us your absolute favorite piece. The giveaway is open to everybody in the whole wide world! I'll draw a winner on Monday the 25th.

Congratulations to JBalloon. You're the winner of the Pretty Sunday giveaway!!

I hadn't heard of this designer before, so even if I don't win THANK YOU for letting me know about her!

I love all the pieces, but my favourite is probably the Vanité Cape - so dramatic and ethereal, I would have such a great time wearing such a beautiful thing x

I really love the Nuptial Headpiece; it's elegant and edgy at the same time.

Although, I think this one is a different color than the one that's up for grabs. But I love them both none the less!

Shannona said...

I absolutely adore the Pagan collar hood. I'm really getting into all the lace that's around at the moment, and this uses it in such a darkly beautiful way. I also love it because it looks so Middle Eastern
