Don't we all purchase those certain things, that, yes we may never find the chance to wear them, but we buy them anyways so we can look at them? Headwear (hats, fun crazy headbands) are my guilty purchases. Its not that I never wear them, I do, its just I cant wear a vintage feathery cocktail hat everyday... although I wish I could. I don't know when people stopped wearing hats day to day. When you look at old movies or TV shows, a hat was as common of an accessory as earrings. Recently I came across a website called ban.do. Two LA stylists created this wonderful little online store where they sell one of a kind headpieces. Clicking through all the designs I had a hard time choosing my favorites to feature on Modern Marie (as you can tell, I favored most all of them). Some are very simple, some more ornate, but the possibilities on where and when to wear these are endless: a costume party, for cocktails, a substitute for a birthday hat, the feather ones with a tank and jeans (a la Kenley from Project Runway), when you want to be a fairy, on your wedding! They will custom make them especially for you too, what ever colors you want, etc. They are just so whimsical and pixie like I had to share with you, plus doesn't it look like something Marie Antoinette would have worn with one of her beautiful dresses?
and did I mention that each one comes with a little haiku that represents the hairpiece?
