TCB Cocktail Hats

A couple of weeks ago The Chica Boutique met up with amazing photographer, Rachel Blackwood, and Becca Caney, of Darling Deuce Designs, to shoot a few of the new cocktail hats. I love how these turned out. My perfect vision for these.

Where on earth would you wear a cocktail hat? Oh girl, they are so feminine...simply gorgeous. They are going to be perfect for a fun night on the town, sitting at your favorite martini bar, or worn to compliment your dress to a summer wedding. You will be the head-turner, for sure.

Are you a bride looking for a unique, classic look for your bridesmaids? Picture how stunning they would be lined up the aisle in cocktail hats. Beautiful! Or even the flower girl....oh my mercy could they be cute.

Here's a look at just some of the fun photos....and want to rock one of your own? Contact me or visit my shop. Many of these are one-of-a-kind with vintage accents, hand-dyed/sculpted feathers and silks. Custom orders are always welcomed. Have a great weekend! XOXOXOX

Peacock Wedding

Peacock-themed weddings are hot this year! I've been working with several brides who are incorporating this most beautiful feather into their weddings. The colors in this feather are absolutely incredible...I mean, really incredible. Up until now, I've always thought they were beautiful. But, actually working with them so closely and intricately...whoa...I just can't believe they're natural. Amazing color tones. The perfect palette, for sure.

I will leave you with some bridal garter sets I have designed this week. Happy almost weekend!!

TCB Garden Couture

Here is a quick "peek" at some of the new designs!

My girls are always willing to help me out with modeling....especially Annaliese. I guess I've always used Annie more than Maggie just because she's older. But, look at little Miss Maggie shine in these photos. I love them so much. All of them. What I love most about Maggie's photos is that her smile is SO genuine..totally HER. In each of these that I captured she was looking at her big sister and laughing. And she was just so excited that I was taking her picture with my design. I will NEVER forget those moments. I love my sweet girlies!! And YeS!...these designs are over-the-top! Like....way over. I love em'!
