house of telsa- "favorite things" #5


Today is the day that I introduce you to cutting edge fashion- Thatiana style. Your life will never be the same. You will long to sport one of these beauties jauntily across you head. You will think up all kinds of outfits to complement such fanciful pieces and you will never, NEVER rest until you own one, or two. I know because ever since I found House of Telsa my head has felt completely bare and boring.


Sometimes I really wonder if I was born in the wrong era.


Why is it that our grandparents got all the good head gear and we were left with scrunchies?

I won't stand for it. With Thatiana as my guide, I am going to personally bring fashionable head wear into vogue. Join me.

Here is what the superb Thatiana has to say about her creative process:

It is something indescribable watching what you've only seen in a vision gradually take form. I relish in it, really, and consider myself quite lucky to have this creative outlet and the support of all my customers, friends and family who continue to encourage and inspire that passion within.

To kick start the fashion revolution, Thatiana has generously donated one of her "Mammy's Red Petticoat" headpieces.

This stunning special edition head piece features a deep red silk dupioni rosette, coupled with black and white feathers as well as a sequined beaded trim in garnet and antique bronze. All is securely set on custom made backing comprised of fine millinery materials. A comb at back keeps it secured on the wearers head. It retails for $60.
Leave a comment and your name will go in the drawing on Dec 15th.
