Hola Sunshines!

Once again it's Wednesday... and thanks to a quick run to Target yesterday for toilet paper i had a sunny reason to get up this morning, hanging in my closet! My $12 steal of a frock, in a fun golden plaid with subtle silver metallic stripes, a bow bust and smocked back, in a cool cotton stretch blend. Too cute. Summery, but hints at fall.
PLAID + METALLIC = A BAD A$$ WINNER



Had a lovely time wandering aimlessly about Target. Snapped a couple photos with my phone of things that I felt drawn to. a peacock print top, a vampire tee, a brit flag wallet... Target gets me.






Ah, so, I was going to talk about headbands today. And honor them and praise them and tell you why they should never be seen as a trend, but rather a true fashion staple. Oh how i adore headbands, how i collect them, how i often stare at said collection and wish i could wear a headband every single moment of every single day without it being over kill. recently they've made several appearances on the pretty rich little head of blair waldorf on one of my guilty pleasure fave shows, gossip girl. with feathers having a presence in the fashion scene, retailers like nordstrom and forever 21 have/are sold/selling over the top plume-graced headbands like i wore to the Coldplay show a couple months back. don't get me wrong, they're in and they're out there. so stock up now. as once you start donning them, and realizing what a fun accessory they really are, you'll be quite glad you did.

DIRE FASHION TIP: if something you adore comes into fashion, be it headbands, skull & crossbones, pyramid studs, plaid, ruffles, houndstooth, a specific color- buy it and hoard it like crazy. when the fad fades, such coveted gems can be relatively hard to come by!

Ode to Headbands...
headbands are awesome for a boat, beach or pool day...
headbands rock when you're working out...
headbands are fun with a girly frock...
headbands are hot hot hot with jeans...
headbands are an amazing party companion...
headbands are as lovely and kick a$$ as the sun, moon and stars...
la la la...
the end.
;-)

p.s. in every single photo i'm wearing one, i have a 10000000 photos of me
in headbands. thought i'd spare you and just post three. also pictured,
blair waldorf, my headband collection, the great little brit flag wallet at target, my sparkling plaid frock...
