Bow Addiction + Coco In The Hat Box Give Away!

 Three Collections later I keep introducing you to designs I created for my Atelier. Thank you for being so wonderful and supportive when it comes to my hats. :-) I have recently discovered that, YES! I do have a bow addiction. How did I discover it? Simply by looking through the images of my previous editorials. :-))) And it doesn't matter if it is a "Lady Gaga" hat  with a huge pink bow or my red "La Parisienne" or one of my hat boxes, I am crazy about the bows!
 It is time to admit that I am bow obsessed! Thankfully, this is the type of obsession you don't really have to treat and one of the most delightful forms of addiction.:-)  To celebrate this curious fact I have decided to run another fabulous Give Away.
 The Winner will receive this beautiful Chanel Hat Box filled with Coco's favorite scents.:-) In order to enter Give Away you need to tell me a) Which bow is your favorite? b) If you are following my blog on Bloglovin simply press "Like on Bloglovin" button at the end of this post  to like this post .If you are not following me on Bloglovin yet, press this button to follow and like this post :-).The lucky winner will be announced next Tuesday!
 I am wishing you wonderful week ahead! I hope you enjoy bows I have created for my hats in the pictures below. :-)

Oh you are so very talented. I adore the red hat as well as the yellow for spring! The bows make them!

Chanel #5 was my very fist perfume, given to me by my first boyfriend!

I am indeed a follower!

Oh, my goodness!!!! Another lovely giveaway? You are so sweet and generous... :) not many people would be willing to do so much for others, and I appreciate it so much! {and as a side note, I am addicted to bows too ;) }
My favorite is definitely the blue gossip girl hat with the gorgeous blue bow... *swoon* But it is a really hard choice, as I love them all!
I am already following your blog on bloglovin' :)
Again, thank you so much for your beautiful hats, lovely blog, and love and generosity =)

These bows are so exquisite; I like the orange bow best. Mind you the red is very special, too, but orange is such a happy colour. Warmly hope you are in good form;-)

Little Rus said...

Oh Anya, I am discovering my passion for bows, too! :) I was looking at my summer shoe collection and realised that 2/3 of the shoes have bows on them. :))) They are just so beautiful and feminine.
Don't think I have any chance of winning this, but of course, I would love to enter - never really experienced Chanel fragrances apart from No. 5, but have a very(incredibly) soft spot for the bottles and still think there's still a scent for me to discover.
Anyway... You most likely to know which hat I would pick even if you woke me up at night (actually, there are 3 here), so I am just going to say, yet again, how much I adore The French Chocolate one.

Hope you are feeling tons better!


Little Rus said...

P.S. Following/and Liking you on blogloving now. :)

Anya, as always you never cease to amaze me with your talent and your generosity! I have always been a big fan of bows whether on clothes or gifts. hence I wear bow ties and always wrap a gift with a bow! As a male that wears womens perfumes, I love this giveaway and would love to be entered. I have worn Chanel # 19 as long as I can remember after stealing it from my mother in the early 80's.

Rachel {Inspiration in Italy} said...

Anya, I must say that your bow addiction has been quite a treat for the rest of the world...because some of your most exquisite work have been your gorgeous hats with bows! I must say that I would simply faint if I was lucky enough to receive this beautiful hat box with Coco's favorite scents, what an incredible giveaway! I think my most favourite bow is "The Secret Lives Of Dolls." I adore how these stunning hats were inspired by the popular sleeping caps from the 19th Century as you have taught me, and the bows are the most beautiful addition to these gorgeous hats. If I may include a 2nd favourite as well, the "Gossip Girl" hats have really won my heart as well, and the oversized bows are to DIE for...absolutely stunning.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend, Anya...and I hope that you are fully recovered from your illness!! Also hoping you have the best week ever with your gorgeous hats! Much Love. ♥


Rachel {Inspiration in Italy} said...

Forgot to also mention that I'm following you on Bloglovin, here, and facebook. :):)

Haute World said...

Hello my dear... I hope you've recovered from teh flu by now and are doing well! I adore bows as well. So ladylike and timeless. As you know I love all your creations although in this case I'm very partial to the Eiffel Tower piece, since it reminds me of my time in Paris.

Also love the inpiration behind the Iris Apfel beret in your last post. How delightful and charming! The illustration actually reminds me a lot of Alber Elbaz's sketches :)

janettaylor said...

Ooooooh, enter me! :) I am already following, darling Anya!

Beach House Living said...

The blue printed bow. I like the entire hat for that matter.

Lauren said...

I "liked" this post on bloglovin. And I must say that your yellow and blue rose hats have always been one of my favorites, so I'll have to go with those luscious bows! I am a bow fanatic as well, but just don't ask me to choose between ruffles and bows! You are so sweet to offer this giveaway! Thank you, Anya!

Rachel {Inspiration in Italy} said...

oops, "liked" on bloglovin as well! :)

Sandy at Ooh La Frou Frou said...

Anya, what an incredible gift!!! The hat box alone would be wonderful, and to have the Chanel perfume inside ... I sigh. Yes, I follow you in a couple of ways ... I follow you on Google Friend Connect and on Bloglovin as well. Following you is easy. (How could anyone not?) The hard part is picking a favorite of your gorgeous hats ... I guess I'd have to choose one of the very spring looking ones right now, the yellow, perhaps, because it's spring. But the red is so so so very chic, it makes the choice almost impossible! Thank you for such a lovely giveaway, darling! xoxo


carla fox said...

So hard to choose only one....but if I had to choose, one of the Gossip Girls! They are all gorgeous!!

Paris Pastry said...

Yet another generous giveaway! We both share an addiction with bows! My favorite bow is the blue & green bow with the butterfly and the Eiffel Tower ♥! I'm following your blog on BlogLovin'


Jan said...

Some addictions are good.
Hope you're feeling better Anya.
Forced to choose - it would be the final bow.

mj said...

I love all of the bows, but the last one stands out because it is so different. Yet the luscious yellow print bow is compelling, too. I guess it's just too hard...


Draffin Bears said...

Dear Anya,

I am a lover of bows too, they are so feminine and fabulous.
My favourite,... too hard to pick as they are all so gorgeous but I adore the red Parisian hat and love the straw hat with the violets.

I hope that you are having a beautiful week and feeling better now and over the flu.


Pratishtha Durga said...

Dear Anya, hope you have recovered from the flu and are feeling your usual self again.
And yes, another one of your lovely giveaways! Chanel perfumes were my mother's favorite. I have even mentioned in my blog intros that she always smelled so beautiful. I think I got my love for smells from her.

I am a huge fan of bows myself, so I completely relate to your near-addiction. The way you incorporate these bows into your designs, you lend them a touch of timeless femininity and allure. And though it is a difficult task to pick a favorite from your designs, my pick is the La Parisienne, for its quirkiness and the way it captures the essence of the city's fashion spirit.

I hope to one day own one of your beautiful hats, Anya. It's a dream.

I am already following you on bloglovin and facebook, and have also "Liked" this post on bloglovin. Will wait for the results keeping my fingers crossed.

Talking with Tami said...

I love the bow on the floral hat with the lady sitting at table thats chicness! Too fun and I adore bows as well! xoxo Great giveaway!

Anna said...

Absolutely love the giant yellow floral bow!

La Petite Gallery said...

I love the yellow hat but even the small hats with bows are very chic looking great give-a way/
I have been following you for a very long time.
You are so talented.


La Petite Gallery said...

I am sure I was a follower 2 years ago, but I just did it again.
I think I told you I grew up in my teen years, in a hat shop my Mama had in Houston. She was always fixing Bows and I remember her sewing silk violets on a hat with that dotted netting that wraped under the chin. Great memories.
You are a very talented Lady.


bikim said...

lovely post!
take care,

deabs8 said...

My favorite bow is Clara Bow. Her fearless style, sense humor, and sultry look fit in perfectly with your lovely site. She was not afraid of gossip either and your Gossip Girl hat sports a "to die for" bow that she would have rocked.
definitely a follower,

Maja said...

You are so generous, what a dream give-away this is!
But it was a really tricky question you made - I love all the hats!
But I must say, I adore the blue one from "Gossip Chic". It instantly brings me to a Parisian café where the beautiful people meet over a cup of coffee.

Elekon said...

Wow I`ve just found your blog and it`s awesome! you`re so talanted as everyone`s already told you so I`m really wordless for your creations...

Definitely following you now on blogloving and on google friend connection, I`ve never won anything from giveaways but just for the case:) my favourites are two big hat the blue and yellow ones (blue is my fav)


Kisa Valenti said...

Oh Anya,

How can I possibly pick one favorite bow? It's like eating one chocolate! But if you are going to put me on such a strict diet.... I will choose the blue and green bow on the grey hat with the butterfly and eiffel tower. I love how softly it is draped. On the other hand the green bow on the hatbox is such a fabulous color. Yes, the rose bushes and every thing else are coming back to life. How can I not choose green at this time of year? And yes, I am following your blog, with great pleasure

Kat said...

i forgot to mention it in the last post:
i hope you're feeling better, that flu is pretty persistent!

my favourite is definately "la parisienne", i love the colour and the texture and simply everything about it!

i'm wishing you a wonderful sunday!

Anonymous said...

Your site is so inspiration.What talent. It is hard to choose because they are all gorgeous. the Hand dyed silk in blue and green or maybe the yellow and orange. So hard to choose. Thank you for the chance at a gorgeous givaway.
Hope your getting better.


Little Rus said...

Anechka, dobroe utro! I just wanted to let you know that I started a facebook page for my blog and wanted to invite you to join.



Angie Muresan said...

Anya, it is quite all right to be bow obsessed. Particularly since the bows you create are so beautiful.
By the way, I am enjoying my La Parisienne hat tremendously. I have a wedding to go to this summer and I've just commissioned a seamstress to make me a gown. The hat is the inspiration. I can't wait to wear them both. I shall send you a photo, of course.

Laura G said...

I love, love, love, your hats and your atelier would be my first stop in NY. the gorgeous bow with the butterfly is my favorite. Have you thought of selling your bows separately so they can be affixed as other adornments!
