What's New: Dorfman Pacific -- Scala Sinamay Feather Spray Fascinator Headband

Happy Thursday!

The biggest news of the week has got to be the Duchess of Cambridge's pregnancy... and in honor of the fascinator-loving princess and her royal baby-to-be, I think it's the perfect time for me to share with you guys this new fascinator headband from Dorfman Pacific! ;)

Dorfman Pacific offers the most comprehensive collection of hat brands in the country. The company's research, development, and design departments are busy scouting the world for the best trends and materials so that retailers can offer consumers the paramount looks, always in the best quality and affordable price point. The upcoming Holiday, Resort, and Spring collections offer many silhouettes, colors, patterns, designs, and trims in a huge range of materials....wool, cotton, blends, acrylic, leather, suede, and straw are just a few. Organza and Sinamay dress up the options.

I am absolutely obsessed with headbands and I've always wanted to own a fascinator, so when they offered to send me this fascinator headband to review, I immediately said yes!

The Scala Collezione Collection is one of Dorfman Pacific's most popular brands. It features more than 50 formal looks retailing from $30 up to about $150 for a very involved Sinamay style with a seven inch brim, netting, and dyed to match feathers (and over $200 for a fascinator decorated with a butterfly motif and silk flowers in a 22 inch diameter!). Flowers, bows, ruffles, and/or feathers adorn each style in stunning, eye catching intricate designs. All fascinators are individually boxed to protect the fine workmanship.

Style LDF7 is a very popular style because it is flattering on all face shapes and has just the right detailing and trim for accessorizing most outfits. The headband is subtle, but secures the fascinator so it stays in place through dancing, partying, cocktailing, and the like. Black, White, and Pebble are all top colors in the style and work with any and all outfits... perfect for consumers to pick up all three.

I really like the design of this headband.
It's subtle, but is still capable of standing out.

The materials are top quality; plus, the colors are basic and are easy to pair with outfits.
It is easy to put on and to keep on.

I also like how it is attached to a headband -- wearing a fascinator takes some getting used to and not everyone can immediately feel and look fantastic in one à la the Duchess of Cambridge, so combining it with something familiar to all of us definitely helps.
It's basically just like wearing a headband with a big embellishment, haha! ;)

Trying my fascinator headband on...

This is not a headband I would wear on a daily basis... BUT, I think it won't hurt to have one handy just in case you get invited to a party requiring the use of a fascinator, or a derby, or perhaps if, for some reason, you find yourself in London (Oh, how I wish that's the case for me, haha!). ;)

Another idea... if you know anyone who is obsessed with London, the royal family, or fascinators, then you have THE perfect gift idea right here! :D

Colors available: Black, White, and Pebble
Price: $30
