When I think of head bands and hair ties, I instantly think of one person. Mr. Jimi.
He made that particular hair accessory iconic. Sometimes, when I rock a scarf I think to myself â€“ is this too Jimi Hendrix? Well, it depends on the kind of scarf and the time of day. But one of the coolest things about having big, crazy curls is that you automatically get a Little Miss Dramatic pass. Your hair is bold, so go ahead and work it with glam jewelry, bright colors, and eye-catching hair accessories. Even though we donâ€™t get the season here in Miami, scarves are totally fall. Iâ€™ve been seeing some super cute hair accessories on sale, and when I put my fall wardrobe together (is that too fashion dorky? Doesnâ€™t everyone do that?) Iâ€™m totally going to get three trendy accessories to kick the look into high gear.
Skulltastic: ~ I thought the skull trend would be over already, but it might be here to stay for a while. I love it. It lets me express my feelings non-verbally on my â€œdonâ€™t mess with meâ€ days. I already have this hella cute skull headband from Hot Topic. What I also like about it is, it isnâ€™t too tight like so many other headbands can be. Itâ€™s super loose and comfortable. But I want a skull scarf now, for those extra fierce â€œarrrrrrr mateyâ€ moments.
WTF? All of a sudden Target is jumping into the â€œoverpriced shitâ€ game. Peep this hot and trendy scarf that costs like $50 bucks. Why, Target, why? If that was ten dollars, Iâ€™d already be wearing it right now. Instead, Iâ€™m going to buy this at Hot Topic for $8.99. Thatâ€™ll learn ya, Tar-jay. I could also get the look for less at Urban Outfitters, a store I normally avoid that has some super cute scarves right about now. Which brings me to trend numero dos.
Stripes and stripes forever: ~ Hereâ€™s the power of using an Afrobella in your ad:
Isnâ€™t she lovely? Work it, girl! I love her hair with this accessory so much, Iâ€™m gonna get me one.
Meow, baby: ~ In the spirit of Justin Timberlakeâ€™s latest ass-shaker, Iâ€™m bringing sexy back. For me, that means leopard print. Iâ€™m a complete sucker for any animal print. What I love about leopard is, the colors so often compliment my skin tone. Itâ€™s fierce but still understated enough to go with the ginormous chocolate brown portion of my wardrobe. Seriously, I have enough skirts, tops, and shoes to have a week of only chocolate colored clothing. The leopard headband will go perfectly with these adorable furry Chinese shoes I bought on Ebay for $5. Donâ€™t get them wet, they might be made out of Gremlin fur for all I knowâ€¦ but the shoes are comfy and super kawaii. I get lots of compliments on them. So much so that I have mary janes from China Direct Store in myriad colors. $5 for a pair of shoes? Fuggedaboutit. This Afrobella loves a bargain!
