Here's the absolute zenith in Boho head chic for all you woodsy nymph brides out there. How about putting a real honest to goodness crown of glory on your head? Emily Zych of Which Goose has been wowing us with her natural twig and vine crowns. An Etsy shopkeeper, her message is all about nature and it's ever changing landscape. She hand gathers twigs and vines for these crowns you see here. Says Emily, "My crowns are made from a base of dried natural (real!) vines, harvested from along my favorite walking paths. They are stripped, woven and protected with a clear sealant. I try hard to be ecologically responsible with my supplies. I take only from places where vines are plentiful, and I usually take only the ones that are not growing anymore. . . "
Below are just a few of my personal favs. I highly recommend a visit to Emily's shop good for a mega dose of inspiration . . .

I initially created this space for my clients. Eventually brides looking for that touch of wow found their way here. Draping and playing with fabric started some twenty years back when I did a three-year stint as a bridal fabrics buyer. After that I opened Bridal Alternatives, a custom design studio and ever since have had the opportunity of working with brides who want that extraordinary one-of-a-kind dress. I'm in love with fashion history and re-invention of the past.
Other connections to fashion? I’ve been a columnist for San Francisco Art and Fashion News and have a weekly fashion buzz on One Wed Blog. I founded The Design Project of San Francisco, a networking organization of fashion professionals collaborating their skills and talents on projects. I’m currently working on a book called—you guessed it—'Bride Chic', all about that white gown and very special designer/client relationship. I live with my husband Edgar and Chihuahua Piccalina in Marin County California.
