This is my second book review in my occasional series. The book I have chosen is Fairie-ality, an amazing trip through a fantasy filled fashion catalog. All of the fairie fashions are created with natural materials; pressed, dried and fresh flowers, leaves, grasses, feathers and shells. The book begins with an invitation to view the new fashion collection from the House of Ellwand. You will find attire appropriate for a Cotillion held by the Queen, May Day outfits including hats and shoes, playwear featured in a section called Fun and Games, and of course a Wedding ensemble.
The clothing is a real treat but so are the beautiful photographs and graphics. Some pages are vellum giving a smoky view of the image to come, there is a collection of mix and match clothes with half pages of designs so you can turn all of the pants over and see another set, and small envelopes so you have things to discover inside. It is a wonder of inspiration and fun. You won't look at your summer flowers in the same way again.
The first image is the cover and the lower one is the bridemaid's dress.
