Queen with a crown with Doily Delightz

We all have those days when we just want to slay. We want to look our best. To feel like the queen of our own realm…however big or small that realm may be. So what better way to help a girl feel like a queen than with a crown? Doily Delightz is an Australian small business that is helping ladies feel like queens with their unique creations which as the name implies are made from various doilys.

 Taking the humble doily and adding a unique twist, Doily Delightz doesn’t just make hair pieces for retro girls, they make hair pieces that can be worn by ladies in any fashion lane (though I must admit as a pinup I do love the granny chic feel the doily’s give!).  A mum pursuing her passion (while also being a supporter of other mum’s and women doing the same), she’s found a unique way to combine her love of handmade goodies while breathing new life into old doily’s and lace.

 When I was contacted to see if I’d like to collaborate, I knew this was a small business I had to share with you all. Perfect for a variety of occasions (weddings, festivals, races, parties) or even just for days you want to add a bit of doily-esque slay to your outfit, there is a piece that will appeal to everyone. As I said, her designs aren’t just for retro girls and can be worn by ladies of all ages and backgrounds. These really are headpieces anyone can wear. When I received my black doily piece in the mail, I was excited by the fun prospect of styling it! It gave me such dark queen vibes and I found the perfect dress match in this slinky bronze number I bargain hunted a few years ago. I also teamed it with my earrings from another Australian small business Tika's Treasure for a little pop of colour to my look.

Made of stiffened black doily’s that are reinforced with wire, this piece is attached to a headband for easy and comfortable wear. I love the simplicity of the style and the detail through the holes of each spike, created by the pattern of the doily. It’s not very heavy and light to wear. It’s also quite hardy and despite sitting on my dresser it easily dusts off and is very resilient to the occasional bump as I sift through my things. I’m absolutely loving this design and I’m really excited to find new events to wear this piece to in 2017! 

All of Doily Delightz pieces are one of a kind, meaning you’ll never have to worry about someone wearing the same thing as you when you head out to a function/event/or just life. Her pieces also range in size and style from crowns like this, to pieces that cover more of your head to taller pieces. There really is something to suit everyone and any occasion!

I hope you’ve all loves this review and I had such fun styling it. You can find Doily Delightz in their etsy store as well as on Instagram and on facebook.

Keep your eyes peeled on their social media spaces as they are due to release their first collection of 2017 very soon!

Til next time darlings!
