The most ho-hum ensembles come to life with a little love from add-ons like scarves, jewelry, belts and bags. Can you tell I’ve been in Texas? Southern ladies are all about glitz and glam, and as an accessories girl I always love to scope how the Texan gals are jazzing things up. I left my scrunchies in the 80s but have recently been into hair accessories that add interest and fun to my otherwise classic locks. Feather clips, headbands and decorated bobby pins are my favourites.
Like most girls, I came to the pre-wedding crossroads- veil or no veil? This is tough stuff. Yes, it’s one fleeting day, but those photos live on and heaven forbid you make a bad call on your bridal hairpiece. From the get-go, I knew I wasn’t a veil bride. I fell in love with a Toni Federici satin and Swavorsky crystal hairband before I found my dress.
If you’re feeling brave enough to spice up your daily look with some hair accessories, Etsy is a great place to start.
Be something new
These shops are great for styling inspiring and a perfect place to pick out some fun handmade pieces. I was feeling crafty myself and made these headbands for my sisters as thank you gifts for hosting me at their house in Texas last week. I designed them using bits and pieces from my sewing and craft boxes.
I'm hoping you are inspired to do as the Texans do and mix up your regular accessorizing. A hair piece is a great place to start.
