Love Lulu Mae

I'm completely obsessed with the Chicago burlesque/pin-up scene, and Love Lulu Mae is an essential accessory to complete your vintage look. Each piece is designed by Chicagoan Agnes B. Miles using antique jewels, vintage fabrics and exotic feathers.

If you're looking for that perfect bridal headpiece, check out the Wedding Bells collection or contact the designer to have a custom piece made. I love this romantic birdcage veil.

In addition to being fabulous, Love Lulu Mae is environmentally-friendly and charity-focused. Hat boxes and tissue paper are made with recycled materials and most feathers are collected from various farms, including local ones. (Don't worry, they're cleaned.) And when you purchase from the Love Lulu Mae website, five percent of the sale is donated to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society of Chicago.

You can pick up one of these creations either online or at boutiques around Chicago, California or New York. And I highly recommend following the Love Lulu Mae blog for delighful takes on vintage-esque fashion.
