I recently stumbled upon the Tessa Kim website when searching for a great headpiece for one of my clients, and I was totally blown away! All her pieces are so unique, so special, with a touch of vintage but still with timeless elegance. Tessa focuses on accessories like bridal belts and garters, headpieces, birdcage veils, and even lingerie and robes for the bride-to-be. Usually, a custom fabulous designer like that would have no "ready to ship" items for the bride getting married with no time to spare for custom pieces, but Tessa has a generous offering for last minute purchases, which really allow for some flexibility for that bride who may not have a year long engagement, or even an engagement of a few months.The "ready to ship" shop section is just as fabulous as the "made to order" pieces!
I love so many pieces of Tessa's but here are two of my favorites at the top right now..
The Lulu Garter (serves double duty as "something blue"!), $80. This is not your typical garter that you buy at the local dress shop...it has beautiful vintage stones and that dusty blue color is beautiful! This would make a perfect gift for a friend tying the knot!
My next pick is the Aurelia feather headband, $135....with the influence of the roaring 20's coming on strong for wedding inspiration, I just love this nod to The Great Gatsby. I see this piece as not only for a more non-traditional bride, but as a fabulous piece for bridesmaids! I can just see bridesmaids in their champagne colored gowns with this adorning their messy updos! So unique!
