Hi there, hi. Hello. I've been quiet for quite some time now. Lots of different things have happened (more on that later - don't mean to sound so ominous there), but I thought why not break the silence and show you some Little Fille stuff I've been working on. On a Saturday night at 3:39am, no less. Fun, party times.

(My mannequin's name is Headwig. GETIT?)

I've been experimenting with shells, plastic and metal. Usually my personal style is quite minimalistic (or whatever I pick up from my bedroom floor, let's be real), so sometimes it's quite a challenge to get into "Little Fille" mode. I hardly ever wear headbands. Shock, horror! But I absolutely love to create new pretty, little things - so look forward to more in the future.

PS Oh and follow me on Instagram Do you have one? Tell me what it is! So late to the game, but I love stalking people.

Headpiece Giveaway!

Win your choice of either our Drew or Tiara style headpiece, plus a flower clip of your choice. To find out more, keep reading to the bottom of the post!

If I'm being completely honest, I've always had flower haberdashery in my arsenal that I've never quite been compelled to use. That is, until I came across this beautiful image of my baby cousin Marian (now in her early 20s!) with this little number on her gorgeous little head.

Continuing on the honesty front, Marian is actually the headband aficionado of the family - she was practically born with a headband on her head. 

Anyway, here are the pins in question - dainty, small and sweet just like the tiny inspiration herself, and best of all, each one is unique but still totally affordable.

These clips are quite dainty, but if you are into something more full-on (think floral crowns) - I definitely think you should also check out Crown and Glory - Soph has got some great stuff for all you flower lovers out there.

I also like the sunflower headbands over at Lou Lou Loves You - very ethereal!
I've also remade some older pieces that I think are absolutely wonderful for the summer - if London ever gets one, that is. I'm itching to wear these headpieces with t-shirts, cut-offs and Doc Martens. Send some sun my way.
Little Fille tiara, £25
Little Fille drew, £20 
Oh yes, contest stuff! You can win a flower clip and your choice of either a Drew headband or gold plated tiara. 
Just comment below on with your email address and what you'd like to win. You can also follow me on twitter at @sarimantos and tweet about this contest, and make sure to include this link: 
There'll be a winner via blogger and via twitter as well. Good luck!

Happy Birthday Little One

In non Little Fille news, here's a video for my 8 year old sister, an ocean away in Canada. Don't know if this makes me a good or bad sister, but I love her to death anyway!

New piece, perfect for summer. Limited 10 piece edition run - once it's gone, it's gone. Buy it exclusively online here.

P.S Read Julia's blog here. She's kind of a big deal - you know, if you like talent, beauty, humour, and general amazing-ness. Personally, I hate her.
