Items like this handmade felted top by Fatima’s Wild Rose Creations are truly art that you can wear. When I was browsing through the Main & PCH Pop-Up Shop (they are open in the Huntington Harbour Mall through the end of December) I instantly gravitated towards Fatima’s beautiful one-of-a-kind pieces and fell in love with this top. Fatima later gave me a little more history on this particular design via Instagram and said that the colors and patterns reflect the Venezuelan Goajro tapestries. Oh, this little tid-bit of information made this piece even more romantic, more ethereal.
I love that this piece was handmade by a local artisan in my home town of Huntington Beach. She also makes beautiful scarves that would be perfect for Christmas gifts.
Since the top is partially sheer and is put on like a poncho, then snapped at the waist to create a beautiful peplum, I wore a navy tee underneath. For today, I paired it with some light wash distressed Chico’s jeans that I got at Goodwill. A simple gold chain with coordinating seed beads gives a nice touch to the top.
For a girl that has MAJOR issues with up-dos, I think I finally have found my style. This is not an understatement, I am really awful at them! The Hollywood Roll by Scunci found at Walmart made this look possible. My husband told me I looked like Princess Leia. Well, anything with a Star Wars reference is good in my book! And it actually stayed in place, no slippage at all. Usually when I wear headbands they slide right off my head. It also is like a little tiara with the sparkles.
